Steve Sullivan had a goal and an assist last night as the Nashville Predators haunted GM Place with a 3-2 Halloween win over the Vancouver Canucks.

Sullivan’s goal with 5:41 remaining in the third period was the winner. He assisted Ryan Suter’s power play goal at 8:11 of the first.

Predator Alexander Radulov opened the scoring with assists by Dan Hamhuis and David Legwand at 5:33 of the first.

Canuck Mattias Ohlund scored on a power play with 2:19 to go in the second and Markus Naslund tied the game at 8:12 of the third.

Canucks apparently continued a sellout streak that dates back to 2002, but many seats appeared to have been occupied by ghosts. For the record, Canucks’ mascot Fin wore a pirate costume.

Vancouver ended October with a 7-6 record (including a shootout loss) for 15 points. Canucks visit Minnesota Wild tomorrow night and the Colorado Avalanche Saturday.
