LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) _ Sergei Krivokrasov scored with 45 seconds remaining to lift the Nashville Predators to a 2-2 NHL pre-season tie with the Dallas Stars on Tuesday night.

Krivokrasov made an off-balance, backhand shot with the Predators on a power play for the game-winner.

Referees called the game before overtime could be started because fans sailed paper airplanes and other objects onto the ice.

The game was scoreless after the first two periods. Nashville's Jeff Nelson scored on a power play at 11:45 of the third period. Dallas answered 33 seconds later when Tony Hrkac scored on an assist from Dave Reid.

Dallas scored again with 14:17 gone on a hard 30-footer by Guy Carbonneau that landed high in the net.

The Stars held the lead until Krivokrasov's shot in the final minute.

Dallas goaltender Roman Turek went the distance and made 26 saves on 28 shots. Nashville goalie Mike Dunham played about half the game, stopping all 12 shots he faced. Dominic Roussel allowed two goals on six shots.

The Predators were 2 of 7 on the power play and the Stars 1 of 8.
