In their final home preseason game, the Nashville Predators were able to exact revenge on the Tampa Bay Lightning with a 2-1 win. Simon Moser, who is on a pro tryout agreement, scored the first goal of the game in the second period. The twenty-four-year-old Swiss native is making it hard for head coach Barry Trotz to finalize his roster. Kevin Klein scored the game-winner with under six minutes remaining in regulation. Pekka Rinne and Marek Mazanec split time between the pipes as Rinne stopped all fourteen shots faced (2; 12), while Mazanec was scored on by Steven Stamkos with forty-five seconds left in regulation. The Czech netminder made all of two saves for the night.
