Tomas Voukoun made 24 saves for Nashville, which outshot San Jose, 13-5, in the second period.

Meanwhile, the Flames snapped a three-game losing streak by posting a 6-1 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Tuesday. Jarome Iginla netted his third goal of the season and Daymond Langkow added two assists for Calgary, which went 3-for-10 on the power play.
