TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Goaltender Anders Lindback won in his first game against his former team, Alex Killorn had a goal and an assist, and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Nashville Predators 4-2 on Thursday night.

The Lightning also got goals from Martin St. Louis, Teddy Purcell and Richard Panik.

Lindback stopped six shots, including a pair of quality chances by David Legwand, during a two-minute stretch late in the first period. Tampa Bay acquired Lindback in a trade with Nashville on June 15, 2012.

Craig Smith had two goals for the Predators.

Killorn put the Lightning up 1-0 when he beat Carter Hutton from the right circle 2:25 into the game. Defenseman Victor Hedman and Jean-Philippe Cote assisted on the goal.

Hedman was back in the lineup after missing the previous six games because of a lower-body injury. Cote, recalled Wednesday from Syracuse of the AHL, got his first career point playing in his first NHL game since an eight-game stint with Montreal during the 2005-06 season.

St. Louis made it 2-0 during a power play at 19:06 of the first. Tampa Bay had scored with the man advantage in just four of its previous 22 games.

After Smith cut the Nashville deficit to 2-1 at 6:36 of the second, Purcell put the Lightning back up by two 1:51 later.

Nashville got within 3-2 when Smith scored a power play with 6:58 left in the second. Tampa Bay again quickly responded on Panik's goal just 49 seconds later.

Hutton was pulled after Panik's goal and replaced by Marek Mazanec. It was Hutton's 28th birthday Thursday.
