NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- James Wisniewski scored at 2:43 of overtime and the Columbus Blue Jackets beat Nashville 4-3 on Saturday night for their first road win against the Predators in more than five years. There was traffic in front of Pekka Rinne when Wisniewski's slap shot from the right point sailed high over the goaltender's right shoulder for Columbus' first road win of the season. R.J. Umberger, Jeff Carter and Vinny Prospal scored for the Blue Jackets, who snapped a 17-game losing streak in Nashville -- the longest such active streak in the NHL. The Blue Jackets' previous win in Nashville came on April 3, 2006. Colin Wilson, Mike Fisher and Nick Spaling scored for the Predators. Columbus led 3-2 before Spaling picked up the rebound of Shea Weber's shot from the right point and slid it by goaltender Curtis Sanford at 14:24 in the third period. The Blue Jackets had taken the lead on Umberger's power-play goal early in the final period. With Nashville defenseman Ryan Suter serving a roughing minor, the rebound of Wisniewski's shot from the left point found the stick of Ryan Johansen, who slid the puck to Umberger for an open net for his second goal of the season. The Blue Jackets also got a power-play goal in the second period when Prospal beat Rinne with a backhander, tying it at 2. Wilson scored the game's first goal at 18:29 of the opening period. With the Predators on a power play, David Legwand fired a one-timer from the high slot. Sanford made that stop, but Wilson dug the puck out and shot it glove side for his fifth goal of the season. Sanford, making his second start in as many games, improved his career record in Nashville to 4-0-0. Carter's first goal with the Blue Jacket tied it at 3:29 of the second. Driving down the left side, Carter pulled up in the high slot and his wrist shot deflected off Suter's skate and past Rinne on the stick side. Carter was acquired in a trade from the Philadelphia Flyers in the offseason. An early foot injury sidelined him for 10 games, and Saturday was only his fourth game back from injured reserve. Nashville regained the lead on Fisher's power-play goal at 10:27 of the second. In front of the Columbus net, Fisher grabbed the rebound of Weber's slap shot from the top of the right circle and beat Sanford for his third on the season. NOTES: Legwand returned to the lineup after missing four games with an upper-body injury. ... Umberger is now tied with Nikolai Zherdev for fourth in Columbus franchise history in goals scored with 76.
