ATLANTA (AP) - Jon Sim scored on a tip-in with three seconds left in regulation and then scored the winner in a shootout and the Atlanta Thrashers beat the Nashville Predators 4-3 Friday night in a pre-season game.

Slava Kozlov and Sim, the fourth Atlanta shooter, beat Chris Mason in the shootout, while only Paul Kariya was able to score against Fred Brathwaite. Jean-Pierre Dumont had a chance to tie it for Nashville after Sim's goal, but missed.

Dan Hamhuis scored twice for Nashville. Hamhuis played all 82 games for Nashville last season but became a restricted free agent and did not re-sign until last week.

Scott Mellanby and Steve McCarthy scored for Atlanta (2-3-1) in the second period to give the Thrashers a 2-0 lead. Hamhuis put Nashville (3-1-1) on the board with a backhander at the 19:41 mark of the period.

Kariya tied it on a short shot at 11:04 of the third, and Hamhuis scored the go-ahead goal on a long slap shot with 1:38 left in the period.
