NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Colin Wilson scored two goals to lead the Nashville Predators to a 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night.

Filip Forsberg and Mike Fisher also scored for Nashville, winners of four of their last five.

Philadelphia captain Claude Giroux had the lone goal for the Flyers, who had their three-game winning streak snapped.

Forsberg scored the game's first goal at 9:41 of the opening period.

With Nashville on a power play, Forsberg's wrist shot beat Philadelphia goaltender Ray Emery on the glove side.

Nashville is 12-1-1 when scoring first this season. Giroux tied the game at 6:50 of the second with a wrist shot from the right circle with the Flyers on a 2-on-1 break.

Fisher and Wilson scored power-play goals 38 seconds apart late in the second.

With Matt Read and Giroux both in the penalty box serving high-sticking minors, Fisher scored on the rebound of a Forsberg shot at 13:57.
