Sullivan scores three as Preds beat Dallas
November 10, 2005

Steve Sullivan is one of only two players entering this season to have tallied more than one hat trick in a Nashville Predators uniform.  His second trick as a Pred powered a third-period comeback in the Predators’ 5-3 win over the Dallas Stars on Nov. 10, 2005.  Trailing 3-2, Nashville stormed back with three third-period strikes, including two goals in the final 10 minutes off the stick of the Timmins, Ont. native.

Sully’s final goal was one for the highlight reels, as he took an outlet pass on his side of the red line and stickhandled his way through Stars defenseman Sergei Zubov with three moves before getting around him to the right and firing a low shot past goalie Marty Turco.

"When I got the puck, they had a couple of Dallas guys backchecking," Sullivan said, describing his final tally. "There was only Zubov in front of me so I figured I might as well just try to play him one-on-one since I wasn't going to be able to wait for anyone else to catch up to me. So I made a couple of moves on him and I don't think Marty Turco thought I was going to be able to get the shot off. I think Zubov had me wrapped up pretty good so i don't think he was expecting the shot. I think I just beat him low, blocker side--just caught him off guard."

The game kept the wheels spinning on a four-game winning streak and span of 10 victories in 12 games for the 2005-06 Predators, who went on to set franchise records in wins and points to clinch their second playoff berth in franchise history.
