NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Keith Yandle scored with 1:45 remaining to give the Phoenix Coyotes a 3-2 victory over the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night.

Phoenix won its second straight game. Nashville has dropped six of eight.

Ray Whitney and Taylor Pyatt also scored for Phoenix. Jack Hillen and Shea Weber had the Predators' goals.

With the teams skating 4-on-4, Shane Doan fired a pass from the right circle to Yandle skating through the slot. Yandle corralled the puck and put it past goalie Pekka Rinne for his fourth of the season.

Nashville had tied it 2-2 at 12:53 of the third on Weber's goal.
