NASHVILLE, Dec. 15 (UPI) -- Colin Wilson tipped in a shot by Steve Sullivan with 2:32 remaining Wednesday, giving the Nashville Predators a 3-2 victory over San Jose.

The Predators faced a one-goal deficit heading into the final period, but Sergei Kostitsyn tied it and Wilson delivered the game-winning score just 44 seconds later.

Anders Lindback, who has been getting the playing time for Nashville since Pekka Rinne suffered a knee injury this month, made 25 saves. Lindback is 5-0-1 since Rinne went out.

Niclas Wallin and Dany Heatley scored for San Jose and Antti Niemi stopped 32 shots.

Nashville has won four in a row, its longest winning streak of the season.
