NASHVILLE, Tennessee (Ticker) -- Steve Sullivan and the Nashville Predators are glad to be home after a recent west coast road trip, and are playing like it.

The Predators go for their third straight home win when they host the St. Louis Blues on Saturday. Nashville, 8-1-3 at home this season, comes off an easy 6-0 blanking of the Ottawa Senators on Thursday.

Sullivan accomplished a rare feat when he scored a natural hat trick in the second period. With the Predators already holding a comfortable 3-0 lead, Sullivan tallied at 5:58 and 9:21 before completing the hat trick with a tally at 11:54.

J.P. Dumont assisted on all three of Sullivan's goals while Chris Mason recorded 22 saves to earn his fifth career shutout.

The Blues have not won since the day after Thanksgiving and are mired in a 0-8-1 slide.

St. Louis dropped a 4-1 decision to the Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday in new coach Andy Murray's second game. Jamal Mayers gave the Blues a 1-0 lead with a first-period goal, but the Avalanche took the game over and won going away. Blues netminder Jason Bacashihua stopped 41 of 45 shots.
