The two teams combined for five goals in the first period. The Predators jumped out to an early lead as Greg Johnson scored from the left side of the goal, shooting the puck behind Anaheim goaltender Ilja Bryzgalov at the 2:53 mark.

Yanic Perreault gave the Predators a 2-0 lead on a breakway, firing a wrist shot past Bryzgalov from the middle of the slot at 12:53.

Scott Niedermayer's power play goal from the top edge of the left circle with 40 seconds left in the period capped a 21-shot performance by Anaheim against Nashville goaltender Tomas Vokoun in the first period.

Anaheim made it a two-goal advantage at 17:03 of the second. A shot by Teemu Selanne bounced off Vokouns pads and Jonathan Hedstrom skated in to shoot the rebound past Vokoun.

The Mighty Ducks peppered Vokoun with 36 shots.
