Patric Hornqvist's two goals lift Nashville to 3-2 victory over Colorado

Patric Hornqvist scored two goals 2:17 seconds apart in the third quarter as the Nashville Predators rose to a 3-2 victory in the home opener in front of just under 15k fans. The Predators had 37 shots on goal and Dan Ellis made 22 stops on 24 Avalanche shots in the victory. Jason Arnott also had a goal and an assist for Nashville, which is now undefeated after two games. Just before the late comeback, officials waved off an apparent goal by Jason Arnott, saying that he kicked the puck in.



Look for a complete game recap and analysis tomorrow, but suffice to say that the top line of Sullivan-Arnott-Hornqvist generated all the offense for Nashville tonight, with 18 shots between them (as compared to the Santorelli-Legwand-Erat line which combined for 5). Highlights after the jump...
