NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Mike Fisher scored two goals and added an assist to lead the Nashville Predators to a 5-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night.

Sergei Kostitsyn, Patric Hornqvist, and Nick Spaling also scored for Nashville. Steven Stamkos had two goals and Teddy Purcell had one for the Lightning.

The victory gave the Predators their first home win of the season in their fourth attempt. Tampa Bay saw its three-game winning streak end.

Pekka Rinne, who has started every game in goal for Nashville this season, made 29 saves to record his fourth victory of the season and 99th of his career.

Fisher appeared in just his second game of the season, as recovery from offseason shoulder surgery caused him to miss Nashville's first seven contests.
