The Nashville Predators are winners of three straight.
The Predators ended their four-game road trip on Tuesday night in impressive fashion as they knocked off the Blue Jackets by a count of 3-1.
The contest was knotted at 1-1 late in the third period, but Calle Jarnkrok was the difference maker scoring the eventual game winner. Viktor Arvidsson capped the win off with an empty net tally.
The scoring didn’t get going until the second period, but the first frame was steady with back-and-forth action as well as a few penalties. The Preds were whistled for two minor penalties while the Blue Jackets handed Nashville one power play chance.
With 7:24 left in the second period Viktor Arvidsson flew into the Columbus zone and found Matt Irwin breaking towards the net and the blue liner zipped a wrister home.
Nashville held onto that 1-0 lead into the third period, but not for too long as Pierre-Luc Dubois scored for Columbus 4:37 into the final frame. The Preds answered back with 5:35 remaining thanks to Jarnkrok crashing the net and giving Nashville a 2-1 lead. Arvidsson’s empty net goal came with 16 seconds left in the contest.
With the win the Preds find themselves on their first three-game winning streak of the season.
