10th Anniversary: First goal, first win
10th Anniversary Highlights
The Preds surround goalie Mike Dunham following the first victory in franchise history, 3-2, on Oct. 13, 1998


October 13, 1998: First goal, first win

Two massive franchise milestones were achieved in the second regular-season game in the Nashville Predators’ inaugural season: the team’s first goal and the franchise’s first win.  Former Pred (and current member of the Colorado Avalanche) Andrew Brunette was credited with the Preds’ first tally at 5:12 of the first period.  After a video review, fans got to enjoy “I Like It, I Love It” at the Sommet Center for the first time.

Denny Lambert and J.J. Daigneault would also light the lamp for Nashville that night as the team pulled out a 3-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes.  All five of the game’s goals were scored in the first period, including a tally from Carolina’s Martin Gelinas (now wearing No. 23 for your Nashville Predators).  Mike Dunham earned the win in net with 34 saves.
