Nashville Predators beat Colorado 4-3 in overtime, stretch winning streak to seven games

In an oddly back-and-forth contest that saw Nashville dominate the first period and Colorado the second, David Legwand scored the winner in overtime for the Predators, giving them seven wins in a row and continuing the team's rise through the Western Conference standings.

After the jump you can view the video highlights...

J.P. Dumont and Marcel Goc scored in the first period to put Nashville up 2-0, with Dumont's coming on the power play. During the opening period, the Preds held a 10-3 shooting advantage. That got turned around in the 2nd, as Colorado answered back with three straight goals by Wilon, Hejduk (on the PP) and Svatos.

Nashville tied it back up at 3-3 on a Shea Weber power play goal late in the 2nd, and the teams were scoreless in the third before heading to overtime. In fact, they weren't just scoreless, but until the final minutes of the period, Colorado had only two shots on goal to Nashville's one.

The power play has now scored in six straight games for the Preds, and their record is now 12-0-0 when they score a PP goal. Interestingly, after rolling all four lines for many recent games, the Thuresson-Santorelli-Hornqvist trio all got less than six minutes tonight.

Pekka Rinne stopped 19 of 22 Colorado shots for his 11th win of the season.

The Predators return home for three games in four nights after Thanksgiving - Friday against St. Louis, Saturday vs. Florida, and Monday against Calgary. For discounted tickets to these or any other Nashville Predators home game, you can use this link and the special offer code "PREDS".
