Including the NHL playoffs, Nick Spaling has scored in 13 different games. With his 14th career regular season goal – and second career road goal -coming on Tuesday night against the Colorado Avalanche in Nashville’s 4-1 win, the Predators now hold a 12-0-1 record all-time when Spaling scores a goal.

In other words, Nashville has still never lost a game in regulation when Nick Spaling puts a puck in the net.

The Predators hold a 10-0-1 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 Tuesday, Nashville is also 6-0-0  (including playoffs) in Nick Spaling multipoint games.
