EDMONTON, Alberta, Jan. 23 (UPI) -- Cody Franson collected the only goal in a shootout Sunday, handing the Nashville Predators a 3-2 victory over Edmonton.

Alexander Sulzer scored his first career goal and assisted on Joel Ward's power play tally for Nashville.

Hall scored with less than 4 minutes remaining, forcing an overtime, and Andrew Cogliano also found the net for the Oilers, who fell to 2-12-2 in their last 16 games.

Dubnyk made 26 saves for Edmonton.
