If the Nashville Predators can find a way to a shootout, they stand a good chance of getting a victory.
It's getting through overtime that has been a problem.
That was the case again Tuesday night, as Nashville lost its fifth overtime game of the season, 2-1 to the San Jose Sharks in front of an announced crowd of 14,132 at Bridgestone Arena.
Patrick Marleau scored the game-winner on a breakaway with 1:07 remaining, sending the Predators to an 0-5 record in overtimes this season. They're 6-3 in shootouts.
