Yeah, this is why the Nashville Predators were so keen to get Alexander Radulov back in the lineup. Tonight against the Pittsburgh Penguins, in front of a nationwide audience on the NHL Network, Rads showed the hockey world just what he can bring to the Preds. He scored Nashville's first goal with 7:59 left in the second period, with the Preds facing a 4-0 deficit, with Hal Gill and Patric Hornqvist getting the assists:

His last goal for the Preds came on April 14, 2008, in Game 3 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals against Detroit, a 5-3 Predators victory (the famous "2 goals in 9 seconds" game).
