NHL Game Summary - Nashville at Vancouver



(Wednesday, March 19th)

Final Score: Vancouver 2, Nashville 0

Vancouver, BC (SportsNetwork.com) - Eddie Lack made 30 saves for his fourth shutout of the season as the Vancouver Canucks beat the Nashville Predators, 2-0, on Wednesday.

Alexander Edler and Nicklas Jensen scored in the third period for the Canucks, who sit three points out of the second wild card position in the Western Conference.

Carter Hutton turned aside 20-of-22 shots for the Predators, who have lost three in a row.

"We've got to get some goals for our goaltender," Predators coach Barry Trotz said. "Carter Hutton had a good game for us. We need some production from our forwards. We've got virtually zero. If our defense aren't scoring, we're not scoring it seems like."

Jensen snapped a scoreless tie 6:06 into the third stanza. He scored from the top of the right circle after Henrik Sedin lost the puck in the slot.

"It's being confident and not panicking and just trying to put it on net," Jensen said of his shot, which went just under the crossbar. "The fact the coach gives me that opportunity is really good, but at the same time you have to show you want to be in those situations too."

The goal may have been costly, however, as Vancouver forward Alexandre Burrows threw off his left glove after appearing to take a slash from Nashville defenseman Shea Weber as the puck went into the net. Burrows did not return to the contest.

The Canucks' only power play of the game came at 7:14 of the third. Just five seconds after Victor Bartley was sent off for interference, Edler scored on a one-timer from the right point.

Game Notes

Vancouver won two of three against Nashville this season ... The Predators lost center Paul Gaustad to an upper-body injury late in the first period ... Nashville went 0-for-4 on the power play.
