The Nashville Predators have won three of their last four games, knocking off the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2 in overtime Saturday night at Bridgestone Arena.

Juuse Saros saved 33 of 35 shots (.943 save percentage), marking the third time in his last four starts he’s allowed two goals or fewer.

Ryan O’Reilly scored his third and fourth goals of the year in the first and second periods, respectively, and Roman Josi tallied the game-winner 2:13 into the extra period on a feed from Luke Evangelista, who’s now got four points in his last four games.

The Predators wrapped up their three-game home stand with a 2-1 record and they’ll embark on a five-game road trip against four Canadian teams and the Seattle Kraken beginning on Tuesday.
