Legwand leads Predators past 'Canes, 4-2

Sep 19, 2009 - 1:31 AM RALEIGH, N.C.(AP) -- David Legwand had a goal and two assists to lead the Nashville Predators past Carolina 4-2 on Friday night in the Hurricanes' exhibition opener.

Mike Santorelli and Dan Hamhuis each had a goal and an assist for the Predators. Peter Olvecky added an empty netter on the power play, Martin Erat had two assists and Pekka Rinne stopped 10 shots in 1 1/2 periods.

Erik Cole and Eric Staal scored for Carolina, and Cam Ward made 21 saves.

Legwand's go-ahead goal came early in the second when he snatched a turnover in the Hurricanes' zone and snapped the puck past Ward to make it 2-1.

Both teams skated without some key players: Nashville held out forwards Jason Arnott and J.P. Dumont while Carolina captain Rod Brind'Amour didn't play.
