Sullivan scores natural hat trick as Predators hammer Senators 6-0

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Steve Sullivan had a natural hat trick in the second period while Scott Hartnell added two goals to lead the Nashville Predators to a 6-0 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night.

It was Sullivan's sixth NHL hat trick and third with the Predators. He scored the three goals in a span of 5:56, the quickest for any player in Nashville history. Sullivan showed no effects of a groin strain sustained a week earlier at Los Angeles that forced him to miss the club's previous two games.

Sullivan completed his hat trick by converting a cross-ice pass in the left circle from J.P. Dumont, tucking his shot just inside the left post.

The ailing Senators were without captain Daniel Alfredsson, who missed his fifth consecutive game with a hip injury, and defenceman Wade Redden who missed his seventh with chest and shoulder injuries. Ottawa lost for the fourth time in five games.
