NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Dante Fabbro scored with 59.2 seconds remaining to give the Nashville Predators a 3-2 win over the struggling Detroit Red Wings.

Ryan Ellis and Matt Duchene also scored and Pekka Rinne made 24 saves for Nashville, which snapped a three-game losing streak.

Robby Fabbri and Marc Staal had the goals for Detroit, which has lost 10 of 11.

As the clock dipped just below a minute in the third period, Fabbro sent a wrist shot from the right point through traffic that beat Detroit goalie Thomas Greiss on the stick side.

Greiss finished with 20 saves.
