Arvidsson, Saros lead Predators to 3-1 win over Islanders

NEW YORK (AP) Two days after breaking through with their highest scoring burst of the season, the Nashville Predators needed a strong defensive effort to pull out another win and keep rolling.

Viktor Arvidsson scored early in the second period, Jusse Saros stopped 24 shots and the Predators held on to beat the New York Islanders 3-1 Monday night for their fourth straight victory and seventh in the last eight games.

"Our goaltending was great, our team as a whole was great defensively as far as limiting their chances," Nashville defenseman Ryan Ellis said. "Our forwards were back pressuring and doing everything they could to win the game. When you get that, it makes our D a lot more comfortable throughout the game."
