Nashville Predators defeat Montreal Canadiens 3-2 in Shoot-Out

 

Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators won their third consecutive game and eighth of their last nine with a 3-2 victory over the hapless Montreal Canadiens at Bridgestone Arena tonight.

Nashville was on their heels for most of the first period when Jordie Benn gave the Canadiens the lead at 1-0 at 12:47 of the period.  The Predators couldn’t keep the puck in their offensive zone and was playing “chase the puck” for most of the period, but with .08 seconds remaining, Filip Forsberg tied the game on the power play. 

The second period didn’t offer much in the way of offense and the two teams went to the locker room tied at 1-1.

Nashville Predators defeat Colorado Avalanche 5-2

 

Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators overcame a terrible, penalty filled first period to bounce back and defeat the Colorado Avalanche, 5-2 at Bridgestone Arena. 

The Nashville penalty killers were busy to start the game, having to kill 11 minutes of penalty time, and survive the offensive rush of Colorado to finish the first twenty minutes with a 1-0 lead.  Craig Smith gave the Predators the lead as five different Predators would score on the night.

Nashville was coming off a disappointing loss at Minnesota that saw them with the lead on several occasions, but a late game slump allowed the Wild to win, 6-4.

Austin Peay State University Baseball’s Craig Massoni, Tyler Rogers sweep OVC Postseason Awards

 

Austin Peay State UniversityJackson, TN – For the third time in program history Austin Peay State University’s baseball team can celebrate a sweep of the Ohio Valley Conference’s top awards. Junior first baseman Craig Massoni was named the league’s Player of the Year and senior closer Tyler Rogers was named its Pitcher of the Year at the annual OVC Baseball Awards Banquet held Tuesday night.

“I’m not sure I have a word that is good enough to describe what these two men meant to our team,” said Austin Peay head coach Gary McClure. “Having Tyler involved in 27 decisions over 42 wins is incredible. And on the other hand, Craig was a guy who hit almost .500 in league play and didn’t do it with singles – he did it with doubles and home runs.
