Cal O'Reilly scored in the first round of the shootout and Pekka Rinne made three stops in the bonus session as the Nashville Predators skated to a 4-3 victory over the visiting Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday in a battle of Central Division rivals.
Rinne, who finished with 29 saves to improve to 4-4-2 on the season, denied captain Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane before Patrick Sharp missed on his attempt to end the game.
Defensemen Shea Weber and Shane O'Brien scored and fellow blue-liner Cody Franson added a shorthanded tally for Nashville (7-5-3), which snapped a five-game losing skid at Bridgestone Arena this season.
Jack Skille netted his first two goals of the season and Viktor Stalberg also tallied for Chicago (8-9-2), which suffered its fifth loss in six games.
Special teams did in the Blackhawks on Saturday, as they went 0-for-4 on the power play and permitted Franson's shorthanded goal midway through the third period which tied the game at 3-3.
Marty Turco turned aside 30 shots in this one. The 35-year-old netminder saw his career mark fall to 12-6-2 in 22 games against the Predators.
