Grimaldi scores in shootout as Preds edge Blue Jackets 4-3

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Nashville Predators are trying to stay close enough in the playoff chase to be where they need to be when the season ends.

Rocco Grimaldi scored in the eighth round of the shootout, and the Predators beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-3 Saturday night to pull within a point behind Winnipeg for the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference, with two games in hand on the Jets.

Grimaldi said it's been a roller-coaster ride for the Predators, who won the Central Division each of the past two seasons but have been outside the playoff picture since Nov. 13. They now have points in five of their last six games.
