The Predators found the perfect way to awake from a nearly three-week long Olympic break: score a few power-play goals.

In their first game since Feb. 8, Nashville erased a two-goal deficit with consecutive man-advantage scores, and notched the game-winner on the power play to beat the visiting Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 in front of 17,113 at Bridgestone Arena on Thursday.

The win was key for Nashville in its first game since the NHL took almost three weeks off for the Sochi Games. The Predators (26-24-10) broke a three-game winless skid that started before the break, and helped push them closer into the playoff picture.

Nashville entered the game six points out of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference and is now four out.

Forward Patric Hornqvist scored the game-winner with 6:04 left in the third to cap the comeback. Hornqvist’s goal was a deflection off a shot from forward Mike Fisher and came with three seconds left on a Ryan Malone hooking penalty. The three power-play scores were a season-high for Nashville.
