Predators look to sweep Blue Jackets in Nashville

Defenseman Mattias Ekholm is back in the Nashville lineup, and the Predators find themselves in great spirits.

Ekholm returned after a 2½-week absence and scored twice - his first goals of the season and first two-tally game of his career - as the Predators opened their back-to-back set of matinee games Saturday with a 2-1 win over the visiting Columbus Blue Jackets.

Both goals came on long blasts from the blue line and with plenty of traffic in front of Columbus goalie Joonas Korpisalo.
