James Neal put in a rebound of Seth Jones' shot 2:45 into overtime to give the Nashville Predators a 2-1 victory over the Arizona Coyotes that snapped a season-worst, six-game skid on Monday night.

Pekka Rinne made 27 saves to halt Nashville's losing streak. The Coyotes have lost 11 of 12 home games and 12 of 13 overall.

A fight between Arizona's B.J. Crombeen and Nashville's Mike Fisher set the stage for the game's first goal. Paul Gaustad got a shot through traffic and past Coyotes goalie Louis Domingue at 16:34 of the second period.

Kyle Chipchura redirected a shot from John Moore at 7:27 of the third period to tie it 1-1.

Domingue started for the Coyotes over Mike Smith, three days after his 23rd birthday and made his home debut. He stopped 38 shots.
