NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Colin Wilson scored at 2:08 of overtime, and the Nashville Predators beat the San Jose Sharks 1-0 Tuesday night to snap a 2-game skid.
Pekka Rinne made 25 saves for his second shutout this season in a game in which Nashville set a franchise mark for offensive futility before Wilson scored. The goal ended the drought at just over 176 minutes in a 3-game span.
San Jose has lost six straight after opening the season with seven consecutive wins. The Sharks took their timeout with 32.8 seconds left in regulation, and Antti Niemi gloved a shot from Gabriel Bourque with 4.7 seconds remaining.
6 of the past eight games between these teams have gone past regulation. Wilson got the win for Nashville when he tipped a shot from defenseman Ryan Ellis past Niemi.
