Roman Josi scored 18 seconds into overtime after Pekka Rinne gave up three goals in the final 2:01 of regulation, and the Nashville Predators eked out a wild 7-6 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.

Mike Fisher and Colin Wilson scored goals 1:22 apart in the first period, Mattias Ekholm and Mark Acrobello scored 1:41 apart in the second and the Predators also got goals from Ryan Ellis and Olli Jokinen. Rinna finished with 24 saves.

Dwight King, Alec Martinez and Jeff Carter each scored in the late burst in the third period to tie it. The defending Stanley Cup champions began a seven-game homestand after pulling out a 3-2 win at Vancouver on Thursday night with two goals in the final 2:07.

King and Martinez both scored earlier and Matt Greene also tallied for the Kings.
