NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Alexander Carrier scored at 2:12 of overtime to lift the Nashville Predators to a 4-3 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Monday night.

Matt Duchesne, Matias Ekholm and Jordan Gross also scored for Nashville, which snapped a six-game losing streak. Youse Saros made 31 saves to help the Predators end an eight-game skid against the Oilers.

“We came out and played a really good hockey game,” Predators coach John Hynes said. “We deserved to win. We did it. I think that’s the most important thing when you come out of difficult stages, is that sometimes you build your game and you don’t get results.”

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored twice and Jesse Puljarvi also scored for Edmonton, which has lost three straight. Connor McDavid had two assists and Jack Campbell made 30 saves.

In overtime, Carrier took a long pass from Cody Glass and palmed it past Campbell for the win.
