DALLAS (AP) - Shea Weber scored on a power play with less than a second remaining in the first period, Pekka Rinne stopped 22 shots, and the Nashville Predators beat the Dallas 3-2 on Sunday night.

Nashville improved to 6-19-1 in franchise history in Dallas.

Weber put the Predators ahead to stay 2-1 with his 12th goal of the season, popping a loose puck into an open net with 0.2 seconds left in the first. The goal was upheld after a video review showed the puck entered the net before time expired.

Gabriel Bourque and Colin Wilson added even-strength goals for Nashville, 3-3-2 in its last eight after a five-game winning streak.

Michael Ryder and Alex Goligoski scored for the Stars, coming off a 2-1 overtime loss in Phoenix on Saturday night. Dallas fell to 0-9-2 on the second leg of back-to-backs this season.
