Predators edge Red Wings in OT, 4-3

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Shea Weber scored 44 seconds into overtime to give the Nashville Predators a 4-3 victory against the slumping Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night.

Craig Smith, Gabriel Bourque and Roman Josi also scored for Nashville, which had lost its last two games. The Red Wings have dropped four straight.

Daniel Cleary, Jordin Tootoo and Pavel Datsyuk had the Detroit goals.

Coming down the right side, Weber collected the rebound of Colin Wilson's shot and beat a diving Jonas Gustavsson, who replaced injured goalie Jimmy Howard midway through the first period.

Smith scored the game's first goal at 5:01 of the opening period.

With the Predators on a power play, Wilson had the puck to the right of the Detroit net. Wilson slid the puck to Smith on the left side, and with his skates below the goal line, he beat a sprawling Howard on the stick side.

The goal was Smith's first of the year. He had 14 goals as a rookie last season.

Wilson's assist extended his career-high point streak to five games.

Bourque doubled the Nashville lead at 10:41 of the first when he deflected Scott Hannan's slap shot from the left point by Howard on the short side.

Howard left the game less than a minute after Bourque's goal with an upper-body injury. He did not return.

Howard stopped five of the seven shots he faced in 11:22 of ice time before he was replaced by Gustavsson.

Cleary scored a short-handed goal with 4:59 left in the first and Detroit tied it at 11:33 of the third on a goal by Tootoo, a former Predator.

Nashville regained the lead at 12:54 on Josi's first goal of the season, but Datsyuk tied it again at 3 just 36 seconds later.

NOTES: Tootoo played his first road game in Nashville. He spent the first eight years of his NHL career with the Predators. ... Weber has points in four consecutive games. ... Hannan's assist on Bourque's goal was his first point as a Predator.
