Weber looks to help Predators notch third straight win

Phoenix (27-29-5) at Nashville (29-28-4), 8:00 p.m. EST

NASHVILLE, Tennessee (Ticker) -- All-Star defenseman Shea Weber

is becoming the straw that stirs the drink for the Nashville

Predators.

Weber and the Predators seek another strong offensive

performance when they host the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday.

The lowest-scoring team in the NHL, Nashville received goals

from four different players in the third period Tuesday to storm

past the Chicago Blackhawks and record a 5-3 win in a battle of

Central Division rivals.

Weber and J.P. Dumont netted a power-play goal apiece and David

Legwand and Joel Ward also tallied in the decisive session for

the Predators, who scored five goals for the first time since

January 28.

After enduring a 14-game, goal-scoring drought, Weber has

tallied in two consecutive contests.

The Coyotes had their two-game winning streak halted with

Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

Phoenix, which has dropped 10 of 13 overall, will play six of

its next seven games on the road.
