NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Shea Weber scored two goals late in the third period to give the Nashville Predators a 4-3 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday night. Detroit native David Legwand and Jordin Tootoo also scored for Nashville in its fourth straight victory. Tomas Holmstrom, Henrik Zetterberg, and Nicklas Lidstrom scored for the Red Wings, who snapped a three-game win streak. Nashville got its only power play of the game with 4:46 remaining in the third when goaltender Jimmy Howard was assessed a hooking penalty on Tootoo. Only 22 seconds after the penalty was called, Weber's blast from above the left faceoff circle beat a screened Howard on the glove side. The Predators have scored a power-play goal in seven consecutive games. Weber's wrist shot from the right point just under 3 minutes later bounced in front of the net and slipped by Howard for the eventual winner. Holmstrom scored the game's first goal at 5:15 of the opening period. With the Red Wings on a power play, White's shot from the right point deflected off two Predators before landing on the blade of Holmstrom's stick just to the left of Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne. Holmstrom had an easy tap-in for his sixth goal of the season. Legwand drew the Predators even midway through the first when he collected his own rebound to the right of the Detroit goal and put it past a diving Howard. Detroit regained the lead with 9:57 to go in the second on Zetterberg's power-play goal. In the low slot, Todd Bertuzzi found Jiri Hudler in the left circle. Hudler quickly found Zetterberg on the right side, where he sent a wrist shot into a virtually open net. Prior to Thursday night, Nashville had not allowed a power-play goal in its last five games. Lidstrom gave Detroit a 3-1 lead with 8:30 left in the second when his slap shot from the left point beat Rinne high to the glove side. Nashville answered with 2:38 remaining in the period on a goal by Tootoo, who converted the rebound of Kevin Klein's shot from the left side. Tootoo has nine points in his last ten games. NOTES: Nashville is 6-1-3 in its last ten home games against Detroit. ... Pavel Datsyuk has 16 goals and 40 assists in 54 career games played against Nashville. ... The Predators' last nine games have been one-goal games and they are 6-3-0 in those contests.
