The Nashville Predators continued to prove that there was something "special" (in Barry Trotz's words) about this years team as they notched their seventh comeback win of the season from two or three goals down as they scored three goals, including two by Mike Fisher, in the last 3:21 of play.

It was the Predators fifth win in a row and they are 15-2 in their last 17 games. Nashville finished January with an 11-2 record and are 19-5 since the stunning comeback win in Columbus on December 8.

Pekka Rinne picked up his ten victory in a row and is 20-2 in his last 22 decisions.

The win left the Predators with 66 points and three behind Detroit, for the Western Conference and Central Division lead. The Preds had pulled within a point of Detroit before the Wings finished off Calgary 3-1 in a late game.

Nashville now has the third highest  point total in the NHL with only the Wings (69) and Rangers (67) having more and Boston (66) having the same number.

The Preds are on pace for 106 points and are 12 points ahead of ninth place Colorado. They would be assured of a playoff berth if they averaged a point a game for the final 31 games of the season.

The Predators face a tough February schedule, playing a who's who of playoff contenders, starting with a trip to Philadelphia on Thursday to face the Flyers at 6 p.m.
