ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Mike Fisher scored two of Nashville's three goals in the last 3 1/2 minutes and the Predators stunned the Minnesota Wild 5-4 on Tuesday night for their fifth straight victory.

Dany Heatley's first two-goal game for Minnesota was wasted when the Wild squandered a 4-1 lead they held until the halfway mark of the third period. Brandon Yip's first goal for Nashville since being picked up on waivers brought the Predators within two after a replay review reversed a dead-puck call on the ice.

Patric Hornqvist scored his team-leading 15th goal after taking three whacks at a loose puck at the edge of the net with David Legwand distracting goalie Josh Harding during a scrum in the crease. Fisher scored 21 seconds later.
