Logan Couture also scored for the Sharks. Rookie Craig Smith had the lone Nashville goal. The Sharks started the season with just one victory in their first four games but have now won three straight. Nashville has lost five of their last six. Just 57 seconds after Smith tied the game at 1, the 5-foot-11, 195-pound Pavelski grabbed a loose puck behind the Nashville goal and stuffed it just inside the right post past goaltender Pekka Rinne. "He's big and a little flick of his toe, he is over there," Pavelski said of Rinne. "He was coming, I was glad to see it went through." Rinne was disappointed in not being able to make that save. "It was the next shift and it was in the back of our net," he said. "It is a tough one to take. I can only talk about myself, and I am...

New top line shows promise in loss to Sharks

With the return of Mike Fisher, coach Barry Trotz put together a new top line. Craig Smith and Sergei Kostitsyn joined Fisher on that line, and they showed some promise. The trio accounted for seven of the team’s 20 shots and scored the Predators’ lone goal in Tuesday’s 3-1 loss to San Jose.“I felt like we had some chemistry right away,” said Smith, who tied the game...

Predators need solid effort to translate into wins

It has been a process for the Predators this season. Their two wins in the season-opening weekend proved to be somewhat of a mirage as they went winless in their next four games. Pekka Rinne then stole a game in Calgary, but they couldn't quite pull one out against a deep San Jose Sharks team on Tuesday night. Just 57 seconds after Nashville tied the game late in the third period...

The San Jose Sharks took this game 3-1 and hurdled the Preds in the standings in the process...

It was pretty amazing that putting...
