    Canucks 3, PREDATORS 1

    Canucks don't fall prey to Nashville

  • Summary

     NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Alexander Mogilny still has the ability to take control of a game.

     Mogilny, the Russian star who had 76 goals for Buffalo in 1992-93, scored an unassisted goal with 7:34 left as the Vancouver Canucks beat Nashville 3-1 on Saturday night.

     "Alex basically said, 'I'm going to turn the game around,' stole the puck and turned the game around," Canucks center Darby Hendrickson said. "He's capable of that."

     Mogilny stole the puck from Greg Johnson near the Nashville blue line, skated into the right circle, and fired a wrist shot past Mike Dunham to snap a 1-1 tie.

     "The guy tried to beat me one-on-one," Mogilny said. "I poke-checked it away and basically broke loose on my right side."

     Moments later, Donald Brashear made it 3-1 with a soft shot through a screen.

     "Goals don't get scored unless someone makes a mistake," Predators coach Barry Trotz said. "Still, we played a pretty good game. We had lots of chances and played pretty decent."

     The Canucks have won four straight road games, and are 5-1-2 overall away from home.

     "We're just trying to keep it simple," Mogilny said. "We don't try to please the crowd here or anywhere on the road."

     Nashville defenseman Drake Berehowsky tied it at 1 just 17 seconds into the final period. After Cliff Ronning's wraparound was stopped by goalie Garth Snow, Berehowsky jumped into the play and fired through a maze of bodies in front.

     Snow, who made 33 saves, was playing for the first time since Oct. 13. He missed 17 of Vancouver's first 19 games because of a broken finger.

     "It's been awful sitting out," Snow said. "It's almost like you're an outsider looking in. I was really looking forward to this night."

     The Canucks' Steve Kariya scored the only goal of the first period on a wrist shot from the left circle.

     Nashville hit the goalpost twice before Berehowsky finally scored. Ronning banged a slap shot off the right post during a first-period power play, and Berehowsky hit the left post with a blast near the end of the second.

     "We talked about it being a 60-minute effort against a very hard-working Nashville team, and that's what it took tonight," Canucks coach Marc Crawford said.

     There was no scoring in that second period, but three fights. The Canucks' Donald Brashear fought Nashville's Phil Crowe twice. Crowe was playing in his first game of the season after being recalled from Milwaukee of the IHL Friday.
