NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Ryan Kesler scored a pair of third period goals, leading the Vancouver Canucks to a 3-1 victory over the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night.
Brad Richardson also scored for Vancouver, which has won three of four.
Colin Wilson scored for Nashville, losers of three straight.
Richardson scored the game's first goal at 15:24 of the second period.
From the goal line to the right of the Nashville net, Richardson passed to Dale Weise in the right circle. Weise's shot was stopped by Nashville goalie Marek Mazanec, but the rebound came right to Richardson, and he banked in a shot off of Mazanec's left leg pad.
On the same day he was named the NHL's Rookie of the Month for November, Mazanec made his 11th straight start in goal for the Predators.
Wilson answered back just 30 seconds after Richardson's goal.
