Nashville Predators blow three goal lead to fall to the Calgary Flames 6-5

 

Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators held a three goal lead after two periods of play, only to fall in overtime to the Calgary Flames, 6-5 in Nashville.  It was a stunned Smashville crowd that headed for the exits when Mathew Tkachuk slipped the game winner past Pekka Rinne as the buzzer sounded to end the extra period.

The Predators were in full command of this one right from the start.  Nick Bonino continued his scoring onslaught as he gave Nashville the early 1-0 lead, just 5:33 into the opening period.  The Bonino backhand slipped past David Rittich and that gave Bonino four goals in his last four shots, including the hat trick on Tuesday night against the Blackhawks.

U.S. Representative Mark Green Votes NO on Resolution to Formalize Impeachment Inquiry against President Donald Trump

 

U.S. house of RepresentativesWashington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Mark Green made the following statement today:

“The vote is rigged. The deck is stacked. That’s why I will be voting NO on today’s resolution to formalize the impeachment inquiry against President Trump.”

“This resolution is supposed to ensure fairness and transparency. It does no such thing, because Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Chairman Adam Schiff have tucked in provisions allowing them to strip away the President’s rights if things aren’t going their way. Due process if Democrats feel like it isn’t due process at all.”
