Defenseman Michal Rozsival scored in the fifth round of shootout after Jonathan Toews also connected in the tiebreaker, and the Chicago Blackhawks pulled out a 3-2 win over the Nashville Predators on Monday.

Rozsival, who hasn't scored a goal this season, beat Pekka Rinne with a high shot in his first attempt in a shootout this season.

Chicago's Patrick Kane scored his team-leading 19th goal and rookie Brandon Saad scored in regulation to help the Blackhawks win their second straight.

The Predators were outshot 27-11 through the first two periods, but stormed back in the third to erase a 2-0 deficit on goals by Dave Legwand and rookie Taylor Beck and force overtime.

Craig Smith scored in the second round of the shootout for Nashville, but the Predators dropped their third straight (0-1-2)

Chicago's Corey Crawford made 25 saves.

Rinne was sharp for a second straight game, stopping 38 shots through overtime.
