Rolston scored in the second extra round of the tiebreaker after Nashville's Paul Kariya squandered a chance to win the game with a penalty shot with 38 seconds left in overtime. After Rolston's goal gave the Wild a 3-2 lead in the shootout, Josef Vasicek couldn't find the net.

The Predators scored three goals in each of the first two periods, but the Wild responded with five goals of their own over the final 40 minutes.
