Posted: December 13, 2016

The Nashville Predators scored six unanswered goals for a 6-3 win against the St. Louis Blues at Bridgestone Arena on Tuesday, giving goalie Pekka Rinne his 250th NHL victory. 

It was the first time this season the Predators had come back and won when trailing after the second period (1-8-0) and the first time they've come back from a trailing by three goals. 

"That was the Predators," forward Filip Forsberg said. "I mean, that's how we want to play. That's how we've been playing for the last few years since I got here. I've seen this team do so many good things like that, and obviously that's something that we'll build on for sure."

We haven't been great on the road so far, but hopefully now we have a chance to improve our record and also our play, too."
