NASHVILLE, Feb. 25 (UPI) -- Roman Josi provided two goals and two assists, including the game-winning tally in overtime, and the Nashville Predators rallied past Dallas 5-4.

Trailing 4-2 after the Stars scored four goals in the second period, the Predators began their comeback when Patric Hornqvist scored a power-play goal late in the middle frame.

Mike Fisher supplied the equalizer early in the final period, splitting the defense on a rush up the middle and putting a backhander past Cristopher Nilstorp.

Then, 28 seconds into overtime, Josi hammered a shot from the left point that eluded Nilstorp and broke Nashville's two-game skid.

Craig Smith also scored and Pekka Rinne turned aside 20-of-24 shots to earn the victory.

Loui Eriksson, Vernon Fidler, Matt Fraser ad Reilly Smith each tallied and Michael Ryder added three assists for the Stars, who fell for the third time in four contests.

Nilstorp finished with 26 saves.
