Nashville Predators defenseman P.K. Subban skates with the puck with Ottawa Senators left wing Magnus Paajarvi chasing in the second period at Canadian Tire Centre

Mike Hoffman scored 3:01 into overtime, lifting the host Ottawa Senators to a 4-3 victory over the Nashville Predators on Thursday night.

In the three-on-three overtime period, Mike Hoffman gave the Senators the extra point, scoring at 3:01 sneaking the victor between the legs of Predators goalie, Juuse Saros.

Kyle Turris got a rousing standing ovation during the first TV timeout, as a highlight reel of his time in Ottawa on and off the ice played on the big screen, but was held pointless with 2 PIMs in just under 15 minutes of ice time. Turris spent seven seasons in Ottawa, registering 117 goals and 157 assists in 407 games. The goal game at the 4:08 mark of the period and was the first goal of the season for McCormick.

Chris DiDomenico, Max McCormick and former Blues player Magnus Paajarvi also scored as the Senators (19-25-9) won for the fourth time in five games. The Senators will look to extend their good run of form when they visit the Maple Leafs on Saturday.

Trailing 3-2, the Predators tied the game when Subban ripped a shot past Anderson with under five minutes remaining in regulation. Ottawa took the lead on Paajarvi's first with the Senators as he beat Saros with a wraparound midway through the period. He opened the scoring on a harmless looking shot from the side-boards that wouldn't have even been a shot on goal and would have slid harmlessly in to the corner if not for the skate of the much maligned Cody Ceci, who deftly deflected the shot past Craig Anderson.

The Predators took a 2-1 lead at 18:05 as Calle Jarnkrok scored after taking the Nick Bonino pass for goal.

The Predators regained the lead on Jarnkrok's goal. Ottawa F Alex Burrows served his first of a 10-game suspension for kneeing New Jersey's Taylor Hall on Tuesday night. Filip Forsberg is expected to rejoin the team on Saturday after serving a three game suspension.
