(Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Flyers seek their first three-game winning streak of the season tonight when they host the Central Division-leading Nashville Predators at the Wachovia Center.

Philly has toppled Columbus and Montreal to build just its second winning streak of the campaign. On Saturday, Simon Gagne scored twice and posted an assist to lead the Flyers to a 4-2 win over the Canadiens at the Bell Centre.

Sami Kapanen and Mike Knuble netted the other goals, while Antero Niittymaki stopped 29-of-31 shots to pick up the win for the Flyers.

Philadelphia's winning streak comes after a three-game skid.

Gagne has tallied seven goals in 12 games during the month of November.

The Flyers will visit the Islanders on Thursday night.

Nashville, meanwhile, heads to Philly having won four of its last five games. On Saturday the Preds posted a huge home win over Detroit, winning by a 6-2 margin.

Marek Zidlicky scored a goal and had two assists to lead the Predators, who tallied five times in the second period. Kimmo Timonen added a goal and an assist and Steve Sullivan pitched in with three helpers.

Goaltender Chris Mason started in place of the injured Tomas Vokoun and made 32 saves. Vokoun is expected to be on the shelf for 4-6 weeks with a torn ligament in his left thumb.
