Nashville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Barry Trotz received a warm welcome back from the Bridgestone Arena crowd in his return to Nashville. His former team didnt quite return the generosity, however. James Neal scored his second goal of the night with 1:40 remaining, capping a furious late comeback from the Predators that produced a 4-3 triumph over Trotzs Washington Capitals. Nashville overcame a 3-2 deficit by scoring twice in the final 4 1/2 minutes, with Mattias Ekholm netting the equalizer on a power play to help the Predators to their first five-game win streak in three years. Trotz was behind the bench for that run, as well as many others while serving as the Predators head coach for the franchises first 15 seasons of existence. That tenure came to an end when he was fired at the conclusion of the 2013-14 campaign, shortly before taking over in Washington. Seth Jones added a goal and an assist for Nashville, while Carter Hutton came up with 31 saves in his first start since the Predators announced standout goaltender Pekka Rinne would miss 3-to-5 weeks with a sprained knee. Alex Ovechkin notched a pair of goals in the loss, which halted a stretch of 10 straight games of recording at least one point for the Caps. Braden Holtby finished with 26 saves. Marcus Johanssons power-play tally 2:38 into the third period gave Washington a 3-2 edge, but a costly tripping penalty to Capitals defenseman John Carlson with 5:14 remaining enabled Nashville to draw back even. Ekholm fired a wrister past Holtbys glove hand on the resulting 5-on-4 to even the contest, and Neal made Washington pay for a defensive miscue in its own end less than three minutes later. Neal intercepted a clearing attempt by the Caps Matt Niskanen before slipping the puck between Holtbys pads while in all alone for the eventual game- winner. Trotz took several bows to the home crowd after receiving a standing ovation as a video tribute aired during the games first timeout, though his new team trailed 2-0 early in the second period before battling back to take the lead. Jones registered the games first goal with a long wrist shot that got through traffic with 3:44 left in the opening period, and Neal made it a 2-0 Nashville lead just 1:50 into the second. The Predators Victor Bartley threw the puck toward the Washington net to set up the second goal, with Mike Fisher steering the pass right to an uncovered Neal for a tap-in into an open right side. Ovechkin quickly brought the Capitals back, however, by scoring twice within a span of just over 2 1/2 minutes later in the period. The star sniper rifled in a bad-angle attempt from the left of the Nashville net off a Karl Alzner give with 3:46 elapsed in the second. Ovechkin struck again 6:18 in with Ekholm in the box for a tripping call, one-timing a feed from Mike Green past Hutton to knot the score at 2-2.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Dwyane Wade was a late scratch from the Miami Heats starting lineup against the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night because of nerve irritation in his left foot, leaving his status for the All-Star game in doubt. Wade sat out Tuesday nights victory at Phoenix with a migraine headache and appeared to be in good spirits before Miamis 111-110 win over the Warriors, chatting with reporters for nearly 10 minutes in the locker room. He was listed at his usual shooting guard spot and announced during pregame introductions, but seconds before tipoff the Heat said he would not play. Wade said he was travelling to New Orleans for Sundays game but isnt sure if hell play. "Im not optimistic. Im not pessimistic. I just want to get better," said Wade, a 10-time All-Star who was elected as a starter for the Eastern Conference this season. Wade said he started to warm-up when his foot began giving him problems and he went to the locker room. He said trainers officially diagnosed him with "foot drop," which is a weakness or paralysis of the muscles that lift the foot. "I started feeling a little something in my foot, getting a little numbness," Wade said. "But you dont think nothing of it. As time went on it started going up my leg a little bit, so the nerve going up my leg kind of shut down. Weirdest thing Ive ever (felt). WWhen I was out there and moved around and warmed up, I felt I couldnt feel my foot.ddddddddddddSo I didnt want to do anything." Toney Douglas, who was traded from the Warriors to the Heat earlier this season, made his second straight start for Miami. It was the final game before the All-Star break for both teams. Wade has missed 15 games this season, with most of them part of the Heats plan to rest his nagging knees. For most of the previous two days, though, leg problems were the least of his concerns. Wade said he woke up Tuesday with a "pounding, pounding headache" after taking an afternoon nap in Phoenix and alerted trainers. He said he took medication and stayed back at the team hotel, listening to the game against the Suns in a dark room because the bright lights from the TV were bothering him. The Heat beat the Suns 103-97. Wade said he experienced another strong headache after the teams flight landed in the San Francisco Bay Area and took medicine that "knocked me out." He said he woke up Wednesday morning feeling normal. The 32-year-old Wade has experienced migraines at times throughout his career. Hes averaging 18.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.7 assists in 36 games this season. "If youve never experienced it before, you really dont understand," Wade said. "Theres just no rhyme or reason for it." ' ' '
