NASHVILLE — Samuel Girard scored his first NHL goal and added an assist to lead the Nashville Predators to a 4-1 win over the Dallas Stars on Thursday night.

Filip Forsberg and P.K. Subban also had a goal and an assist, and Viktor Arvidsson also scored for the Predators, winners of two straight. Pekka Rinne made 30 saves.

Jamie Benn had Dallas’ lone goal. The Stars have lost three of four to open the season.

Benn scored the game’s first goal at 8:04 of the opening period. With Dallas on a power play, Rinne stopped John Klingberg’s shot from the left point, but Benn was able to swat in the rebound from just outside the crease on the right side.

Nashville has surrendered the first goal in three of its four games.

Girard evened the game at 1 at 3:27 of the second. From above the left faceoff circle, Subban slid a pass to the 19-year-old rookie at the right point, where he beat goaltender Ben Bishop with a one-timer high to the stick side.
