With last night's 2-1 win over Calgary, the Nashville Predators now have their first three-game winning streak of the season and improved their home record to 6-5-3.

The victory also moved them back into the playoff picture in the Western Conference as they now sit in seventh place with a 15-11-4 record and have 34 points.

For Predator fans, probably the most surprising aspect of this year's team is the success that they have had on the man-advantage. The Preds have moved into a tie for third place in the NHL in power play success at 20.8%.

Colin Wilson's game-winning power play goal last night gave the Preds a six game streak with power plays which is a rarity in recent team history. The record for consecutive games with a power play goal is nine which was set in 2002. They last had an eight-game streak in 2009.

Brent Sutter blamed an odd face-off alignment that he claims led to Wilson's game-winning goal for the loss.

More highlights from the game with the Flames included the Preds most shots of the year at 45, the Predators winning at home against Calgary for the first time since January 25, 2008, and Nashville scoring the first goal for the first time in eight games.

The Predators continue their homestand with games against the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday and the St. Louis Blues on Saturday.
