The San Jose Sharks’ win streak was snapped at two games as they fell to the Nashville Predators 3-1 at SAP Center on Saturday afternoon.

The Sharks drew first blood as Paul Martin beat Juuros Saros with a slap shot for his fourth goal of the season at 13:42 of the opening period.

However, the Sharks’ lead didn’t last long. Ryan Johanson found a loose puck and beat Martin Jones with a snap shot, tying the score 1-1 with his 11th goal of the season with 7:50 left in the period.

The Sharks and Preds skated to a 1-1 tie after 20 minutes. Shots were 11-7 in favor of San Jose.

The Preds took a 2-1 lead with 9:52 left in the second period when James Neal scored the go-ahead goal. Neal buried a pass from Colin Wilson to beat Jones from close range for his 19th of the season.

Viktor Arvidsson scored an empty-net, short-handed goal with 1:02 left in the period to seal the 3-1 win for the Preds.

Saros finished with 25 saves.

The Sharks (40-20-7) lost 3-1 to the Predators (33-24-11) at home. Jones made 22 saves in a losing effort.
