Ward's Late Goal Lifts Predators Over Blackhawks
CHICAGO (AP) -- Joel Ward's power-play goal with 26.7 seconds remaining in the third period snapped a tie and lifted the Nashville Predators to a 3-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night.

With Nick Boynton serving a delay-of-game penalty, Ward took a perfect goal mouth cross-ice feed from J.P. Dumont and ripped a shot past rookie goalie Corey Crawford from the left side of the net.

Steve Sullivan and Colin Wilson also scored for the Predators, (2-0). Wilson's goal early in the third tied it at 2. Nashville's Anders Lindback made his first NHL start and stopped 23 shots.

Chicago captain Jonathan Toews scored a goal and assisted on Patrick Kane's power-play tally.
