Arvidsson nets hat trick as Predators rout Capitals 7-2

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Viktor Arvidsson is feeling healthier with each passing game, and the results are showing in the back of the net.

Arvidsson scored a hat trick on National Hat Day, and the Nashville Predators routed the Washington Capitals 7-2 Tuesday night to snap a two-game skid.

He could've had more, too. Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said Arvidsson hit a post and missed a couple other opportunities in close.
