NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Matt Dumba scored 22 seconds into overtime to give the Minnesota Wild a 3-2 win over the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night.
Charlie Coyle had the other two goals for Minnesota, which won for the third time in four games.
Roman Josi scored both goals for the Predators, who have lost three of four and five straight at home.
Just after overtime began, Zach Parise left a drop pass for Dumba at the top of the right circle, where he ripped a slap shot past goalie Pekka Rinne.
Coyle scored the game’s first goal at 19:02 of the first period.
Jordan Leopold’s shot from the right dot hit traffic in front of Rinne. Coyle was standing in front and outmuscled Predators defenseman Ryan Ellis and tapped in the rebound for his ninth goal.
The assist was Leopold’s first point since Minnesota acquired him from the Columbus at last month’s NHL trade deadline.
Josi tied it 1-1 at 13:41 of the second off of a nice pass from rookie Filip Forsberg.
Less than a minute later, Josi took a pass from Viktor Stalberg at the top of the left circle and beat goalie Devan Dubnyk to the far side with a wrist shot.
Josi leads Nashville defensemen with 51 points this season.
Coyle tied it 2-2 at 13:19 of the third when he beat Rinne with a slap shot from the right side.
NOTES: Minnesota LW Thomas Vanek had one assist, extending his point streak to five games. … The Wild are 31-6-3 when scoring first this season. … Josi has three goals in his last two games.
