CHICAGO, April 2 (UPI) -- Michal Rozsival's goal against Pekka Rinne in the fifth round of a shootout Monday elevated the Chicago Blackhawks to a 3-2 decision over Nashville.

Patrick Kane and Brandon Saad scored in regulation for the Western Conference-leading Blackhawks, who notched their third win in four games.

Crawford finished with 25 saves for Chicago.

Beck found the net and David Legwand also scored for the Predators, who remained two points behind St. Louis for the eighth and final playoff spot in the West.

Rinne made 38 saves in the loss.
