EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) - Nick Spaling scored to break a third-period tie, and the Nashville Predators snapped a four-game losing streak with a 2-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Monday night.

Spaling netted the winning goal with 7:39 remaining after Jordin Tootoo sent a backhanded pass in front to him for his third of the season.

Shea Weber also scored for the Predators (11-8-4), who played the third game of a tough five-game road trip.

Jordan Eberle had the lone goal for the Oilers (12-10-2), who have lost two in a row and seven of 10.
