James Neal scored with 4:21 left in the third period tying it up at 3-3, and the Nashville Predators and the San Jose Sharks went scoreless during the first two overtimes and headed to a third extra period early Friday morning.

This already is the second-longest game in franchise history for Nashville, while the Sharks hadn't played this long in the postseason since a four-overtime game in Dallas in 2008. This now is the third-longest playoff game in San Jose history.

Colin Wilson and Mike Fisher also scored for Nashville, and goalie Pekka Rinne made 39 saves with the Predators trying to tie up this series at 2-2.

Brent Burns scored twice, and Joonas Donskoi also had a goal for San Jose. The Sharks are trying to take a 3-1 series lead home with them.

Game 5 is Saturday night in San Jose.
