WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Cal O’Reilly scored the only goal in a shootout Friday and the Nashville Predators defeated the Winnipeg Jets 3-2 in preseason.

The Predators (6-1-0) controlled the first period and O’Reilly opened the scoring when he banged in a rebound off Jordan Tootoo’s slap shot from the point.

The second period got off to a rough start when Winnipeg’s Tanner Glass and Nashville’s Zack Stortini dropped their gloves.

But it was Winnipeg (3-4-0) that came to life after the fight, outshooting the Predators 16-3 as Andrew Ladd tied things by flipping in Bryan Little’s backhand home after it bounced away from Nashville goalie Anders Lindback.
