DALLAS - Matt Cullen gave the Predators a lead that Pekka Rinne protected in the final seconds.Cullen scored the go-ahead goal at 13:47 of the third period and Nashville beat the slumping Dallas Stars 3-2 on Thursday in a game that wasnt decided until the last shot of the night.I think it was (Tyler) Seguin who shot the puck at the end there from the side, Rinne said. I was just diving across and obviously, you need some luck to make that save.It was a huge win for us. Cullen gets a big goal to win it. After that, we played smart, defended really hard and a few of the bounces were going my way tonight.Nashville won for the third time in five tries on a six-game road trip.Dallas rallied from a 2-0 deficit on goals by Trevor Daley and Patrick Eaves. But the Stars have lost their last six games (0-4-2), and are 1-2-4 at home.We played better, and got the same result, Dallas coach Lindy Ruff said. The guys were counting on had probably seven or eight good chances. Rinne probably was the difference-maker at the end.On the winning goal, Cullen retrieved the puck when it came out of the right corner to him just outside the crease. He shot under a tangle of legs past Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen and inside the right post.Craig Smith and Filip Forsberg scored power-play goals in the second period for Nashville. The Predators had only two power-play goals in their first nine games, but have scored four in the last four games.Dallas failed to score on its only power play, and is 0 for 15 in the past four games.We had to win the special-teams battle in order to win the game, and we did, Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. Had the specialty teams been reversed, maybe we had a different outcome.Rinne made 33 saves, 12 in the third period. Lehtonen had 30.Dallas was pretty desperate, Rinne said.Nashvilles Derek Roy and Matthias Ekholm each had two assists.Daley cut the deficit to one by scoring unassisted on an end-to-end rush at 16:26 of the second. He crossed the blue line, skated to the left of two defenders and fired a shot past Rinne to the right post.In the third period, Daleys slap shot hit the boards behind the net, and the puck bounced out in front. After Rinne stopped shots by Antoine Roussel and Seguin, Eaves backhanded a rebound over the goalie at 6:23.Neither team scored during an even first period. Each team had 10 shots on goal and one unsuccessful power play.Dallas best chance came on a 2-on-1 break about 14 minutes in, when Rinne turned aside Jamie Benn.He was on top of his game, Benn said after none of his seven shots on goal went in. He made some great saves for them.Smith broke the scoreless tie with a power-play goal at 4:10 of the second. Roy passed from the right circle to Smith, who used Colin Wilsons screen to beat Lehtonen.Nashville took a 2-0 lead on Forsbergs power-play goal from the top of the left circle at 13:57 of the second.NOTES: Cullen has four game-winning goals against the Stars, his most against any team. ... Predators LW Eric Nystrom played his 500th NHL game, including 122 for Dallas. ... Smith and Forsberg lead the Predators with two power-play goals each. ... Forsberg, who has five goals and eight assists, entered the game leading NHL rookies in scoring. ... Eaves played five games for Nashville last season. ... Stars C Cody Eakin (upper-body injury) missed a game for only the second time in his three seasons. ... Roy played eight seasons for Ruff in Buffalo, then played for the Stars in 2012-13. ...

Neither side were victorious is their respective games on Tuesday evening, with the Scots suffering a 3-0 defeat to Slovakia in Trnava while England were held to a goalless draw by Slovenia. James Morrison (right) scores for Scotland on their last visit to Wembley in 2013. England won the friendly game 3-2 Gordon Strachans men now sit in fifth place in the Group F table but are just three points off the Three Lions at the top with the two sides due to meet at Wembley next month. With neither sides in particularly strong at the moment, former Scotland international McCann is confident that his country can be victorious during the November 11 match-up. Highlights from Scotland’s Group F World Cup qualifier against Slovakia One-hundred per cent we can go to Wembley and win. England might not like it but of course we can do it, he said after the Slovakia defeat.Theyve scored a last ditch winner against 10-man Slovakia, theyve not won tonight and theyve scored two against Malta. England are the best side in the group in my opinion but theyre not firing. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just ￡6.99. No contract. Theyve got managerial problems. The selection problems might just have a little negative influence in the campp so we go there, yes low on confidence.dddddddddddd We can go to Wembley and we can win that game of football without a doubt but we have to play at a top level.Cut out silly mistakes, be absolutely on the money with selection as well and that is a decision Gordon will have until that game comes along. Slovakias Jan Durica and Scotlands Steven Fletcher battle for the ball during the game in Trnava Three points against England would see Scotland on level points with their home nations rivals, and McCann believes Strachans men can get themselves back in contention for World Cup qualification.If we go to Wembley and win that game, were right in it again. Gordon will be sitting back and thinking this is the only positive from tonight, in my opinion, the pundit added.It is a tough group, but you need to find some form and momentum that you can start to build on and that confidence starts to motor on from behind it. Russell Martin says Scotlands 3-0 defeat to Slovakia is tough to take If you continue to stumble, not scoring goals, conceding poor goals, not quite getting things moving the way you want to go then youll continue to stumble and drop silly points.Were lucky were still in it tonight because if England had beaten Slovenia, then forget winning the group. I still think its a big ask because England in my opinion are absolute favourites, but you go to Wembley, you do take three points then its game on again.
