Recap: Nashville vs. Boston

Nashville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Derek Roy recorded the lone goal of the shootout and Nashville outlasted Boston, 3-2, at Bridgestone Arena.

Mike Fisher and Mike Ribeiro tallied in regulation while Pekka Rinne stopped 33 shots for the Predators, who have won four of their last six.

"We know we have to be better," Fisher said. "It's good to get that one, hopefully we can keep this rolling at home."

Milan Lucic and Reilly Smith scored once each for the Bruins, who have lost six of their last seven but recorded a point in back-to-back defeats beyond regulation.

Tuukka Rask came up with 38 saves in the game's first 65 minutes, but was powerless to prevent Roy's dekes from pulling him out of position before a backhander provided the hosts' winning margin.

Ribeiro put the hosts ahead after just 91 seconds elapsed in the third period when he popped a shot over Rask's shoulder, but Smith's individual rush up the right wing tied the game at 2-2 before 3 1/2 minutes were played.

"I think we had some good net-front presence and some good opportunities," said Boston coach Claude Julien. "That goal soon after they took the lead was a thing that we needed."

A frenzied overtime period ensued where both teams threw caution to the wind and traded scoring chances. Rask had to make seven saves and Rinne five.

Lucic opened the scoring just after the four-minute mark of the second period by flipping his own rebound home from the left side.

Fisher equalized for the hosts with 30 seconds left in the second on a power- play strike. He was screening Rask when a floater from the right point by Shea Weber caromed off his body and into the net.
