The Nashville Predators wrapped up their four game swing through Canada with a 4-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets Tuesday.

The Predators watched 1-0 and 3-1 leads disappear before Mike Fisher scored the game winner in the third period on a rebound off a Shea Weber slapshot.

It was the 14th goal of the season for Fisher, second most on the team.

Seth Jones started the scoring with a sensational one on four move and wraparound goal in the first period. It was the fifth goal of the season for the Predators rookie and the fourth overall pick of the NHL Draft.

Roman Josi and Nick Spaling added goals in the second period as they built a 3-1 lead. That lead evaporated when they gave up two goals in only 27 seconds to Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler.

With the win the Preds took five points on the road trip and moved one point ahead of Winnipeg in the Central Division.
