NASHVILLE, Tennessee (Ticker) -- The Vancouver Canucks go for
their third straight victory when they travel to Nashville to
play the Predators on Thursday.
Vancouver's Brendan Morrison scored the tying goal in the third
period then tallied the winner in overtime as the Canucks
rallied to defeat the Detroit Red Wings, 4-3, on Wednesday.
Morrison scored the game-winner when he sped in on a breakaway
and beat Detroit netminder Dominik Hasek between the pads.
Ryan Kesler and Markus Naslund scored the other goals for
Vancouver while Roberto Luongo recorded 27 saves. The Canucks
conclude their three-game road trip at Colorado on Saturday.
Vancouver, which entered with the 27th-ranked power play, went
1-for-6 with the extra skater.
The Predators will look to rebound from a 1-0 loss in Dallas
against the Stars on Wednesday in a game where they only
mustered 17 shots.
Nashville, which had a two-game win streak snapped, did a good
job in killing off seven Dallas power-play opportunities but
failed to convert on three of its own.
The Predators host Central Division rival Detroit on Saturday
before heading out on a two-game road trip.
