NHL.com @NHL

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Shea Weber scored his second goal of the game 17 seconds into overtime, and the Nashville Predators beat the Dallas Stars 3-2 on Thursday night.

The Predators also tied Anaheim for the most points in the NHL while improving to 16-2-1 at home. Miikka Salomaki scored in his NHL debut. Roman Josi had two assists.

Jason Spezza and Trevor Daley each scored for Dallas, which was 4-1-1 in its previous six games.

The Predators thought they scored the winner with 3:47 left in the third period when Filip Forsberg put in a wrister.

Stars coach Lindy Ruff was upset that Predators forward Craig Smith was tied up with goalie Kari Lehtonen, though he was pushed into him by Stars defenceman Jason Demers. The puck squirted over to Forsberg, who shot into a nearly empty net.

Officials huddled and ruled no goal.
