NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Roman Josi scored his second goal 28 seconds into overtime, and the Nashville Predators edged the Dallas Stars 5-4 Monday night in a wild game featuring fights and a bloodied face — all in the second period.
Josi's slap shot helped Nashville end a two-game skid, and the defenceman also had two assists.
Mike Fisher, Craig Smith and Patric Hornqvist each scored goals for Nashville. The last two losses had been shutouts, and the Predators ended a scoring drought at 133:43 after threatening the franchise-worst drought that reached 176:18 on Feb. 13 in an overtime win over San Jose.
Rookie Matt Fraser and Reilly Smith scored 25 seconds apart within the first 2 minutes of the second, and Vern Fiddler and Eriksson added a power-play goal apiece as the Stars matched their season high within the first 9:21 of the period. Michael Ryder had three assists.
