NASHVILLE - Sebastian Aho scored twice to lead the Carolina Hurricanes to a 4-2 victory over the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night.

Vincent Trocheck and Steven Lorentz also scored for the Hurricanes, winners of three straight. James Reimer made 35 saves.

Calle Jarnkrok and Mattias Ekholm had the goals for Nashville, which won its previous two games.

Aho scored first at 12:36 of the opening period.

With the teams skating 4-on-4, Martin Necas intercepted a clearing attempt by captain Roman Josi along the left boards and sent a pass to Aho in front, where he beat goalie Juuse Saros high to the glove side with a one-timer.

Trocheck made it 2-0 at 16:13 on the power play, scoring just six seconds after Dante Fabbro was penalized for shooting the puck over the glass.

Jordan Staal won a faceoff back to Dougie Hamilton. His wrist shot from the right side was deflected past Saros by Trocheck, who was standing just outside the crease.

Trocheck has a goal in three straight games.

Pekka Rinne replaced Saros, dinged on an early collision, to start the second period. Saros stopped eight of the 10 shots he faced. Rinne finished with 16 saves.

Lorentz scored his first NHL goal at 4:48 of the second.

A bouncing puck found Lorentz in the low slot, where he quickly corralled it and lifted a wrist shot high to Rinne’s glove side.

Jarnkrok’s power-play goal six minutes into the third spoiled Reimer’s shutout bid. Ekholm’s shot from the right point 2:17 later drew the Predators within one.
