Must read


NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Filip Forsberg and Roman Josi scored in the shootout to lead the Nashville Predators to a 3-2 victory over the New York Islanders on Saturday. 

Tanner Jeannot scored twice and Juuse Saros made 34 saves in regulation and overtime for Nashville, winners of three straight. 

Ilya Sorokin made 20 saves in regulation and overtime and Anthony Beauvillier and Oliver Wahlstrom scored for the Islanders, which had its two-game winning streak snapped. 

Beauvillier scored the game’s first goal at 14:46 of the opening period on a New York power play. 

With Ryan Johansen in the box for holding the stick and Predators defenseman Mattias Ekholm having lost his stick early in the penalty kill, the Islanders moved the puck around the Nashville zone and Josh Bailey found Beauvillier just below the right faceoff dot, where he beat a sprawling Saros with a wrist shot up high. 

Jeannot tied it at 6:54 of the second. 

Ilya Sorokin (30) made 20 saves in the Islanders 3-2 loss to the Predators Saturday.

Skating in the right side, Jeannot cut to the faceoff dot, where his wrist shot handcuffed and beat Sorokin for his third goal of the season. 

The Islanders regained the lead at 12:04 of the second period on Wahlstrom’s power-play goal. 

He beat Saros high to the blocker side just underneath the cross bar with a wrist shot from the left circle. 

Jeannot made it 2-2 with 8:12 to go in the third when he redirected a pass from Matt Benning past Sorokin for his second of the game. 

It was the first two-goal game of Jeannot’s NHL career.
