RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Josef Vasicek scored on a short-handed breakaway late in the third period Friday night to lead the Nashville Predators to a 5-4 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes.

Kim Staal scored twice for the Predators (2-1), who won their second straight pre-season game.

Ray Whitney scored two goals to lead the Hurricanes, who returned to the ice for the first time since winning the Stanley Cup three months ago.

The big scorer for the Predators was Staal, a 28-year-old left wing who played in Sweden last season. But Vasicek made the biggest play to stun his former team, which traded him to the Predators for forward Scott Walker in July.

With the Hurricanes on a brief power play, the Predators got a short-handed push up ice with Scott Hartnell finding Vasicek, who beat Cam Ward at 18:55 of the third.

I'm not really sure why they let go of Vasicek, since they already knew Weight was gone.

In the end, he scores in OT. of course, this is just a pre-season game, but I'm sure Nashville doesn't mind.

Another Staal, no relation to the 4 brothers, but it sounds like he could still be a decent play.
