NASHVILLE. Tenn. (AP) -- Chris Mason made 31 saves for his fourth shutout this season, leading the Nashville Predators to a 1-0 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night.
J.P. Dumont scored for the Predators, who have won four straight.
With the game scoreless in the third period, Dumont skated in on the left side of the slot. Jason Arnott passed the puck across the crease from the right circle and Dumont beat Cam Ward with a one-timer that went between his stick side and the post at 11:59.
Ward stopped 22 shots in the first 40 minutes for the Hurricanes, while Mason stopped 23 shots for the Predators in the same span of time as the teams were scoreless through two-plus periods.
Ward finished with 33 saves.
