                   Final Score: Nashville 1, Edmonton 0 (OT)
 
 Nashville,  TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Filip Forsberg scored with 1:05 remaining
 in  overtime  to lift the  Nashville Predators to a  1-0 win over the Edmonton
 Oilers  on Thanksgiving.  The Oilers began overtime on a power play, then were
 awarded  a penalty  shot  13 seconds  into the  extra  session when  Nashville
 defenseman  Shea Weber closed  his hand on the puck while in the crease. Pekka
 Rinne  stretched  with his left  pad to deny Jordan  Eberle at the right post.
 Moments  later,  Forsberg spun to shield  the puck from an Edmonton player and
 fired  a  wrist shot  from the  left circle  past Viktor  Fasth. Rinne made 37
 saves  to  earn his second shutout  of the season  and 34th of his career. The
 Predators   won  their   third  straight  game,  all  beyond  regulation,  and
 welcomed  back  forward Mike Fisher to  the lineup. Fisher missed the first 21
 games  of  the season  after suffering  a ruptured  Achilles tendon during the
 summer.  Fasth  finished with 24  saves for the  Oilers, who lost their eighth
 consecutive  game.  They are now  0-11-2 against Western Conference teams this
 season.
