NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Colin Wilson scored a power-play goal at 3:31 of the third period to give the Nashville Predators a 2-1 victory over the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night. Nashville has won three straight while the Flames' three-game winning streak ended. Matt Halischuk also scored for Nashville while Curtis Glencross had Calgary's goal. Miikka Kiprusoff made 43 saves for Calgary while Nashville's Pekka Rinne had 35 saves. With Calgary's Brendan Morrison in the penalty box serving an interference minor, Nashville rookie Craig Smith's shot from the low slot was kicked away by Kiprusoff's left pad. Wilson skated in and converted the rebound on the short side for his eighth goal of the season. Nashville has scored at least one power-play goal in each of its past six games. The Predators' victory ended a stretch of six straight home losses to Calgary. Prior to Tuesday, Nashville's previous home win over the Flames was Jan. 15, 2008. Halischuk scored the game's first goal at 11:43 of the opening period. Brian McGrattan had the puck on the right boards and sent the puck toward the Calgary goal. Halischuk, who was just to the right of Kiprusoff, corralled the puck and beat him on the short side for his sixth goal of the season. Nashville carried most of the play in the first, outshooting the Flames 18-6. Two of Nashville's shots were at a virtually open net, but Kiprusoff was able to get his right pad on attempts by David Legwand and later Martin Erat to keep the Flames within one. Glencross got the Flames even at 6:12 of the second. From his blue line, Glencross carried the puck into the Nashville zone, eventually lifting a backhand over the glove of Rinne. Rinne denied Jay Bouwmeester's shot from the right point with 22.2 seconds remaining in the third to preserve the win for Nashville. Notes: Glencross has two goals in his past three games. ... Calgary LW Rene Bourque missed his first game of the season due to a flulike illness. ... Wilson has points in Nashville's past three games. ... The Predators are 6-1-2 when tied after two periods this season.
