NHL: Edmonton 3, Nashville 2

March 17, 2013 at 10:50 PM

EDMONTON, Alberta, March 17 (UPI) -- Edmonton's Devan Dubnyk made 29 saves, including 13 in the third period, and the Oilers kept Nashville on the skids with a 3-2 win over the Predators Sunday.

Dubnyk held Nashville at bay down the stretch as the Oilers got third-period goals from Lennart Petrell and Jordan Eberle to break open a 1-1 contest.

Petrell's go-ahead goal midway through the final frame came as Edmonton was shorthanded and provided the momentum the Oilers needed to log their third victory in four games.

Shea Weber and Roman Josi scored for Nashville, which dropped all three games of a Western Canada road swing.

Pekka Rinne made 18 stops for the Predators.
