MONTREAL -- The Nashville Predators were not only able to make it through overtime without losing, they came close to a rare 3-on-3 win before Craig Smith redeemed himself in the shootout.

Smith scored on Nashville's third attempt after missing a great scoring opportunity in overtime to give the Predators a 2-1 win against the Montreal Canadiens at Bell Centre on Monday.

Smith hesitated and shot past Montreal goalie Mike Condon into the right side of the net after three Canadiens shooters failed to score on Pekka Rinne.
