Nashville Predators defeat the Vancouver Canucks in overtime thriller 4-3

 

Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators almost let this one get away, but in the end, Colton Sissons was able to score the game winner in overtime for the 4-3 Nashville win over the Vancouver Canucks. 

It was a bit of sweet revenge for the Predators after the beatdown they suffered in Vancouver last week. 

Nashville is still working their way through the injury bug with Viktor Arvidsson and P.K Subban still unavailable.  The Predators did get Kyle Turris back in the lineup tonight for the win, and that meant Eeli Tolvanen was sent down to Milwaukee this morning.

Written by Sgt. Patrick Kirby
40th Public Affairs Detachment, 101st Airborne Division

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – As the sun sets, the humidity lets up and temperatures drop, biologists from Fort Campbell Fish and Wildlife, Environmental Division, Directorate of Public Works, are just heading into work.

Their destination is Fort Campbell’s training area to do bat habitat assessments.

Anytime a tree larger than 3 inches in diameter is removed, an Endangered Species Act compliance survey must be completed.

There are two types of surveys, mist netting and Anabat. Mist nets are used by ornithologists and bat biologists to capture wild birds and bats for average counts and other projects. Anabat is an audio monitoring system that uses the ultrasonic echolocation calls of the bats for species identification and to monitor activity.
