DETROIT (AP) _ Sergei Fedorov's tiebreaking goal with 4:38 to play led the Detroit Red Wings to a 4-2 exhibition victory over the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night.

Fedorov had passed up a good chance moments earlier, but let fly from just inside the blue line and beat Nashville goalie Chris Mason just under the crossbar.

Steve Yzerman had appeared to break the tie when he put the puck in four minutes into the third, but Vyacheslav Kozlov was called for unsportsmanlike conduct for diving on the play.

Stacy Roest scored his second goal of the game into an empty net with 51 seconds left.

Detroit dominated the play throughout, but fell behind when Nashville's Patrick Cote beat rookie goalie Jason Elliott twice in the first five minutes.

Elliott recovered well enough to keep the score at 2-0 at the end of the first period. At that point, he was replaced by Chris Osgood, who played the final 40 minutes and stopped all 10 shots he faced.

Nashville used a conventional exhibition rotation, replacing starter Tomas Vokoun with Mason midway through the second period. Unfortunately for Vokoun, who had stopped the first 15 shots he faced, Randy Burridge beat him with a rebound just a few seconds before his 30 minutes were up.

Roest tied the game at 14:18, taking a pass from Yzerman and beating Mason for a power-play goal.

The game was delayed 45 minutes because the Predators had plane trouble and were late arriving in Detroit.
