ANAHEIM, Calif. – Viktor Fasth made 19 saves and stopped all three Nashville shootout attempts to win his NHL debut, and Corey Perry scored the only shootout goal in the Anaheim Ducks' 3-2 victory over the Predators on Saturday night.
Fasth, the Ducks' new 30-year-old backup goalie from Sweden, capped his solid debut performance by deftly gloving his deflection of David Legwand's final shootout attempt out of mid-air.
Daniel Winnik and Bobby Ryan scored for the Ducks, who never led until the shootout in their third victory in four games to start the season.
Pekka Rinne made 20 saves for Nashville, but the Vezina Trophy finalist dropped to 0-1-3 this season when former 50-goal scorer Perry beat him to the glove side on Anaheim's second shootout attempt.
