Recap: Nashville vs. San Jose

Nashville, TN (Sports Network) - Pekka Rinne masked the Nashville Predators' ongoing offensive deficiencies while helping to extend San Jose's February funk.

Rinne recorded his 27th career shutout with a 25-save performance as the Predators edged the Sharks, 1-0, in overtime at Bridgestone Arena.

Colin Wilson was credited with the game's lone tally at the 2:08 mark of the extra session. Wilson went to the crease and got a piece of Ryan Ellis' shot from up high before it trickled behind San Jose goalie Antti Niemi.

"I saw (Ellis) had (the puck), so I drove the middle. He took a shot and I got a tip on it," Wilson said.

Nashville, which entered play averaging a league-worst 1.83 goals per game, snapped a two-game losing streak.

Niemi played well in defeat, making 24 saves.

Tuesday's loss was the sixth straight for San Jose following a franchise-best 7-0-0 start in January. The current 0-3-3 skid began with a 2-1 shootout loss to Nashville on Feb. 2.

"We have to find a way to get over the hump, get one by some goaltenders and find some wins here," San Jose head coach Todd McLellan said.
