NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Mattias Ekholm's first NHL goal proved to be the game winner as the Nashville Predators beat the San Jose Sharks 3-2 on Tuesday night for their first victory in four games.
David Legwand also had a goal and an assist, and Shea Weber added two assists for the Predators, who have earned points in five of six games.
Joe Pavelski and Patrick Marleau scored for San Jose, which has lost two of three.
