When Nick Spaling scored his 7th goal of the season on Saturday night at 4:30 of the third period on Philadephia’s Ilya Bryzgalov, no one could blame the fans if they decided to pack up their goods and try to beat traffic.

With his 15th career regular season goal being scored as the game winner in Nashville’s 4-2 win over the Flyers, the Predators now hold a 13-0-1 record all-time when Spaling scores a goal.

As of the completion of Saturday night’s game, Nashville has still never lost a game in regulation when Nick Spaling tickles the twine.

The Predators hold a 11-0-1 record when Spaling scores at Bridgestone Arena and a 2-0-0 record when he scores on the road.

While Spaling only put one point on the board on Saturday, Nashville is also 6-0-0  (including playoffs) in Nick Spaling multipoint games.
