Predators lead NHL with 10 overtimes in 20 games

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The Nashville Predators are trying to stack up every point possible in this lockout-shortened season, so it doesn't matter how long they have to play.

Right now, nobody in the NHL is working more overtime than the Predators.

The Predators pulled out a 5-4 overtime win Monday night, their 10th decided in overtime or shootout in their first 20 games. It was their third overtime win in 13 days and pushed them back to fourth in the Western Conference.

Coach Barry Trotz said Tuesday all the extra play frightens him to death but they've done it so often that games decided in 60 minutes feel strange. He says they'll worry if the extra play takes a toll at season's end.

The Predators start a 3-game road trip Wednesday at Anaheim.
