NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Taylor Hall scored 51 seconds apart in the second period, and Ilya Bryzgalov got a shutout in his first start for Edmonton as the Oilers beat the Nashville Predators 3-0 Thursday night.

Bryzgalov, signed by the Oilers on Nov. 8, made 33 saves in his first NHL start since April 25 when he was in net for Philadelphia. Jordan Eberle added an empty-netter in the final minute off an assist from Hall, and the Oilers have won four of five.

Predators captain Shea Weber was hit by a puck near his right eye at 15:24 of the second, dropped to the ice and immediately skated to the locker room. He did not return with what team officials called an upper-body injury, and is day to day.

Nashville, which had won two straight, lost for the second time in seven games.

CANUCKS 5, SENATORS 2

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP)—Daniel Sedin scored his 300th career goal and added an assist to help Vancouver defeat Ottawa.

David Booth, Jason Garrison, Dale Weise and Mike Santorelli also scored for the Canucks, who won for only the second time in nine games. Roberto Luongo made 37 saves.

Clarke MacArthur and Mika Zibanejad scored for Ottawa. Craig Anderson allowed four goals on 15 shots before being replaced by Robin Lehner, who gave up one goal on 13 shots.

The Senators, who beat Washington 6-4 on Wednesday, dropped to 0-4-1 when playing back-to-back nights.

Vancouver has won six straight and 10 of the past 11 meetings between the clubs.
