Nashville, TN (Sports Network) - Pekka Rinne had an off night for the Nashville Predators. Fortunately, his team managed to break out of its scoring slump.

Roman Josi recorded a career-high two goals, including a power-play tally 28 seconds into overtime, as the Predators halted a two-game skid with a 5-4 come-from-behind triumph over the Dallas Stars at Bridgestone Arena.

After being shut out in their two most recent setbacks during a stretch of four defeats in five games, Nashville received a four-point night out of Josi and rallied from a 4-2 second-period deficit to offset a sluggish performance by the usually reliable Rinne, who let up four goals in the middle session and made just 20 saves.

Mike Fisher tied the contest with 8:22 left in regulation with his 200th career goal, with Craig Smith and Patric Hornqvist also lighting the lamp for a Nashville squad that entered the contest as the NHL's lowest-scoring team.

Matt Fraser netted his first career NHL marker and Loui Eriksson had a goal and an assist for Dallas, which suffered its third loss in four games despite three assists from Michael Ryder.

Christopher Nilstorp finished with 26 saves for the Stars.
