Nashville Predator’s Mike Fisher scored in the 112th minute of game against the San Jose Sharks to ensure his team evened their second round series at two games apiece.
Fisher’s line was responsible for each goal by Nashville and goaltender Pekka Rinne made 44 stops including 21 in overtime.
Mike Fisher’s goal ended what was the Predators longest game in history.
Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said teams have a lot invested in a game that goes this deep.
“To win a game like that is big,” Laviolette said. “To think about the other scenario, you’re 3-1 the other way. This ties it up 2-2. It shortens the series. Our guys played like champs tonight.”
Game 5 is Saturday night in San Jose – about 44 hours after this game ended.
