Colin Wilson scores 1st career NHL goal at Boston

Despite the team's 3-2 loss in Boston, Nashville Predators rookie center Colin Wilson can celebrate his first career NHL goal. It came in his 5th NHL game, as the result of driving the net and banging home a rebound from a shot by his linemate, Patric Hornqvist. The 7th overall selection in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft and a Hobey Baker Award finalist for Boston University last season, Wilson surprised observers by making the Predators roster straight out of training camp, and assuming a key role as the team struggles to find consistent offensive output this season.
