NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Nashville Predators have recalled forward Frederick Gaudreau from the AHL's Milwaukee Admirals and placed defenseman Yannick Weber on injured reserve.

The Predators announced the moves Tuesday before hosting the Colorado Avalanche.

Gaudreau from Bromont, Quebec, played in nine games with Nashville last season, and the forward was at his best in the playoffs where he scored three goals in eight games. Gaudreau became the first player since John Harms with Chicago in 1944 to score the first three goals of his career in the Stanley Cup Final.


Kucherov goal streak at 6, Tampa's run 4

DETROIT (AP) Nikita Kucherov is in the middle of one of those stretches when the puck seems to do whatever he wants.

The dynamic forward scored twice Monday night to lift the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 3-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings. Kucherov barely touched the puck on the decisive goal, but he did enough to deflect it past Jimmy Howard with 18:13 remaining in the third period, and Tampa Bay held on for its fourth straight victory.

Tuch, Shipachyov lift Vegas in debuts

Kings edge Islanders, move to 4-0-1

LOS ANGELES (AP) Second-string goalie is one of the toughest jobs in hockey. Long lulls between starts, constant rust, trying to stay sharp in practice.

Los Angeles called on its new backup for the first time this season Sunday night and Darcy Kuemper responded just as the Kings had hoped.


Vegas puts Fleury, Marchessault on IR

LAS VEGAS (AP) The Vegas Golden Knights placed goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury and forward Jonathan Marchessault on injured reserve.

Fleury did not practice Saturday after taking a knee to the head from Detroit's Anthony Mantha on Friday. During his post-game press conference, Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said there was never a discussion about pulling Fleury from the game.


Canadiens place D Streit on waivers

A person with direct knowledge of the situation says the Montreal Canadiens have placed defenseman Mark Streit on unconditional waivers to terminate his contract.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Sunday because the Canadiens did not announce the move. Streit cleared regular waivers last week, but did not report to the minors.

Crosby's 2 goals lift Pens past Panthers

PITTSBURGH (AP) Penguins captain Sidney Crosby was hoping for a pass on the ice from Kris Letang.
