NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Kevin Fiala scored in overtime, and the Nashville predators rallied to beat the Blackhawks 3 to 2 Monday night at Bridgestone arena.

With the victory, the Predators take a 3-0 series lead in and are just one win away from eliminating the Central division champions.

Chicago grabbed a 2-0 lead in the second period on goals by Dennis Rasmusson and Patrick Kane and looked like they were headed for their first victory of the series.

The third period, though, belonged to the Predators and Filip Forsberg, who scored two goals to tie the game up at 2-2.

The Predators dominated play in the overtime led by Fiala who had six shots on goal before finally getting the game later.

Pekka Rinne played another strong game in goal with 34 saves for Nashville.

The Preds now have four opportunities to eliminate a Hawks team that has won three of the last seven Stanley Cup.
