Weber scores twice in 3rd as Predators top Detroit
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 their 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.
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.
