NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Filip Forsberg scored the lone goal in a shootout, and the Nashville Predators beat the Florida Panthers 3-2 on Saturday night after squandering a two-goal lead in the final minute of the third period.

Colin Wilson and Matt Cullen had the goals in regulation for the Predators, winners of three of four.

Rocco Grimaldi and Nick Bjugstad scored 12 seconds apart for the Panthers to tie the game. Roberto Luongo made 48 saves for Florida, which has lost two of three.
