Roman Josi scores in overtime and Predators beat Ducks 2-1

Jim Diamond, The Associated Press

NASHVILLE — Roman Josi found the back of the net 3:50 into overtime to give the Nashville Predators a 2-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night.

Goaltender Juuse Saros helped the Predators win by blocking 34 pucks.

Colton Sissons, midway through the second period, scored the other goal for the Predators, who have won two of their last three games. Matt Duchene participated in both of his goals.

During overtime, Mikael Granlund jumped on a loose puck in the Ducks’ area and spotted Duchene on the right flank. Duchene made a pass to his left to Josi who managed to find the back of the net despite goalkeeper John Gibson’s dive.

Troy Terry, in the third period, had the Ducks’ lone goal and Gibson stopped 39 shots.

The Ducks suffered a third straight loss and have now lost six of their last seven meetings.

The Predators were playing their first game since last Monday after a burst water main flooded Bridgestone Arena on Friday.

The incident led to the postponement of the game scheduled for that afternoon against the Colorado Avalanche, and the next day against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
