Colin Wilson scores in OT, G Pekka Rinne makes 25 saves as Predators beat Sharks 1-0

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Colin Wilson scored at 2:08 of overtime, and the Nashville Predators beat the San Jose Sharks 1-0 Tuesday night to snap a two-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 three-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.

Six of the past eight games between these teams have gone past regulation. Wilson got the win for Nashville when he tipped a shot from defenceman Ryan Ellis past Niemi.

Quote of the Day

I think the thing about him, No. 1, he's a competitive guy. We have no issues as far as him fitting in here with this group. No question he's going to be hungry. I think whenever you look at your back end, it's a mix-type thing, and I think [there are] things he can bring to us. He's very mobile, and even though he's not big (6 feet, 201 pounds), he certainly competes. He's a smart player.
