There's been a lot of talk lately about the importance of the first goal for the Nashville Predators of late, but tonight they rebounded after giving up a 1-0 lead to Columbus just 37 seconds into the game, and pulled away with a 4-1 win at Bridgestone Arena. Shea Weber led the scoring with a goal and two assists, while Pekka Rinne stopped 19 of 20 Blue Jackets shots. After going through an awfully dry spell offensively, the Preds have now scored 4 goals in consecutive games for the first time all season.
