EDMONTON, Alberta, Nov. 29 (UPI) -- Nick Spaling's go-ahead goal in the third period provided the difference Monday in the Nashville Predators' 2-1 victory over Edmonton.

The Preds gained control of the puck deep in the Edmonton zone on an Oilers turnover with 7:39 remaining and Spaling buried a wrist shot into the upper corner of the net, breaking a 1-1 tie.

Shea Weber also scored and Nashville logged its first win in five games with a smothering defense, allowing only 18 shots on net -- 17 of which were stopped by Anders Lindback in his second start of the season.

Jordan Eberle notched the Oilers' only goal and Nikolai Khabibulin turned aside 29-of-31 shots for Edmonton.
