NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Filip Forsberg scored twice and added an assist to lead the Nashville Predators to a come-from-behind 5-2 victory over the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday night.

Calle Jarnkrok, Mike Ribeiro, and James Neal also scored for Nashville, who stopped a two-game losing streak. Shea Weber had three assists.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Kyle Chipchura had the goals for Arizona, who saw their three-game winning streak end.

Nashville lost center Mike Fisher at 7:56 of the second period to a lower-body injury. In the Arizona zone, Martin Hanzal checked Fisher into the left boards. Fisher left the ice without putting any weight on his right leg.

Nashville took a 3-2 lead in the third on Forsberg’s wrist shot. He scored his second at 17:01 and Neal added an empty-net goal late.

Ekman-Larsson scored the game’s first goal at 17:20 of the first.

With Nashville defenseman Seth Jones off serving an interference penalty, Ekman-Larsson sent a wrist shot through traffic toward the Nashville net, beating Pekka Rinne high on the stick side.

Jarnkrok tied it 1 at 12:32 of the second. With Nashville on a power play, Weber faked a shot from the left side before sending a pass toward Jarnkrok in front of the Arizona net. He redirected the puck between the pads of Mike Smith.

Arizona regained the lead at 17:09 of the second on Chipchura’s third goal of the season.

Boyd Gordon had the puck to the right of the Nashville net and slid a backhand pass to Chipchura crashing the net. Chipchura was able to fend off Weber and slip the puck by Rinne.

Entering Tuesday, Arizona was 10-0-0 when leading after two periods.

Ribeiro tied the game at 2:33 of the third when Cody Hodgson got a stick on an Ekman-Larsson pass in the Arizona zone and the deflection came to Ribeiro and beat Smith high to the glove side from the low slot.

NOTES: Domi has a four game point-scoring streak. … The Coyotes have allowed at least one power-play goal in their last four games.
