Predators rally from in 3rd, beat Colorado 5-3

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Cody Franson scored with 2:30 left, and the Nashville Predators beat the Colorado Avalanche 5-3 Saturday night for their second straight victory and third in four games.

The Avalanche have lost seven straight - including two since Peter Forsberg rejoined the roster - for their longest skid since the franchise relocated to Colorado for the 1995-96 season.

Martin Erat had a goal and two assists, David Legwand had a goal and an assist for Nashville, and Patric Hornqvist and Shea Weber scored a goal apiece. Mike Fisher had an assist on Legwand's empty-net goal in his debut for Nashville.

Forsberg took two shots and played 16 minutes, 36 seconds. But the 37-year-old Swede also was called for two penalties in the second period. Matt Duchene scored in the third, Kevin Porter had a goal and an assist, and David Jones also had a goal.
