DAL­LAS — Mat­tias Ekholm scored 2:27 into over­time as the Nashville Preda­tors ral­lied to beat the Dal­las Stars 5-4 on Satur­day.

Nashville killed off a Dal­las power play for the first part of over­time, and then Ekholm took a cross-ice pass from Kyle Tur­ris and sent the puck over Stars goalie Ben Bishop for the win.

The Preda­tors (13-30) im­proved to 8-0 on the road this sea­son. They ral­lied to tie the game three times, the last on Ro­man Josi’s power-play goal with 43 sec­onds left in the third pe­riod.

De­nis Guri­anov, Tyler Pitlick, Tyler Seguin and Ja­son Spezza scored for Dal­las (9-6-2), which lost for the third time in four games. Bishop fin­ished with 29 saves.

Josi and Ryan Jo­hansen each had a goal and an as­sist for Nashville. Ryan Hart­man and Yan­nick We­ber also scored, and Ju­use Saros made 20 saves.

Pitlick scored his third goal of the sea­son 13:05 into the first, and the Stars opened a 3-1 lead on goals by Seguin and Spezza in the sec­ond pe­riod. Hart­man got the Preda­tors on the board 12 sec­onds into the sec­ond, and Jo­hansen and We­ber tied the game again with goals in the first 1:54 of the third.

Dal­las grabbed the lead for the last time when Guri­anov scored his first ca­reer goal off a pass from rookie Ben Glea­son with 11:02 left.
