Recap: Nashville vs. Edmonton

Nashville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Fifty-one seconds. That's the time separating goals by Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Taylor Hall in the second period, and it proved to be the difference in the Edmonton Oilers' 3-0 win over the Nashville Predators on Thanksgiving night.

Ilya Bryzgalov, making his first start as a member of the Oilers, turned away all 33 Nashville shots to record his 31st career shutout.

"It was great. Shutouts are always fun," Bryzgalov said.

Edmonton head coach Dallas Eakins was obviously pleased with Bryzgalov's performance.

"Check marks across the board for him tonight. He did a great job," Eakins said.

Nugent-Hopkins redirected a perfect slap-pass from defenseman Jeff Petry 5:32 into the middle stanza. Hall then completed a 2-on-1 rush by collecting a feed from Sam Gagner and slipping a backhander through the five-hole of Nashville goaltender Marek Mazanec at 6:23.

Jordan Eberle added an empty-net goal for the Oilers, who have won four of their last five games.

Mazanec stopped 25 shots in defeat. The Predators were coming off consecutive wins.

"We talked before the game that we needed to get in the hard areas and throw some pucks, but obviously we didn't play hard enough in those hard areas," Predators head coach Barry Trotz said.
