Predators start four-game road trip in Phoenix

Dec 4, 2006 - 3:03 PM Nashville (17-5-3) at Phoenix (9-15-0) 9:00 pm EST

GLENDALE, Arizona (Ticker) -- The Nashville Predators open a four-game road trip against the Phoenix Coyotes on Monday.

The Predators failed to extend their winning streak to five in a row after enduring a 4-3 overtime setback to the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday. Goaltender Chris Mason, who had 26 saves, surrendered the game-tying goal to Jeff Hamilton with 34 seconds left in regulation.

Making matters worse, Hamilton tallied barely a minute into the extra session, sealing the Blackhawks late rally.

Shea Weber and defenseman Kimmo Timonen both scored their fifth goal of the season for Nashville, which went 1-for-5 on the power play.

The Coyotes won their second straight contest, a 7-4 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday. Mike Zigomanis tallied twice and added an assist and Ladislav Nagy finished with three assists.

Rookie Patrick Fischer, Georges Laraque and blue-liner Zbynek Michalek all had two assists and netminder Curtis Joseph made 31 saves for Phoenix, which has won its last four home games.

The Predators have won seven of their last eight meetings with the Coyotes, including a 4-1 decision on October 14.
