DALLAS (AP) _ Matt Cullen scored the go-ahead goal at 13:47 of the third period in Nashville’s victory over slumping Dallas.
Goals by Trevor Daley and Patrick Eaves rallied Dallas from a 2-0 deficit. But the Stars have lost their last six games (0-4-2), and are 1-2-4 at home.
Craig Smith and Filip Forsberg scored power-play goals in the second period for Nashville, which is 3-2 on a six-game road trip. The Predators had only two power-play goals in their first nine games, but have scored four in the last four games.
Predators goalie Pekka Rinne made 33 saves. Derek Roy and Matthias Ekholm each had two assists.
