Nashville Predators Sweep Road Trip With Win Over Calgary Flames 2-0

 

Nashville PredatorsClarksville, TN – The Nashville Predators pulled six points from their just completed road trip with a 2-0 victory over the Calgary Flames.  Once again, Pekka Rinne stood tall for the Preds securing his third shut-out of the season.  This comes on the heels of Juuse Saros’ record setting shutout on Thursday against Edmonton.

Rinne stopped all 32 shots he faced against the Flames in the 2-0 win.  The shutout was the 46th of his career.  

As is usual for Nashville, they have problems getting started in the first period, as Calgary outshot the Preds 12-6.  Shots from TJ Brodie and Dougie Hamilton were deflected off the crossbar, something that plagued the Flames most of the night.

APSU Women’s Volleyball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University’s volleyball team will play at No. 8 Illinois, Friday, in Champaign, IL, during the opening round of the 2010 NCAA Volleyball Championship, as announced by the NCAA, Sunday, on ESPNews.

Not only will this be the Lady Govs first trip to the NCAA tournament, it as well will be the first for head coach Haley Janicek, who might be the youngest head coach in the NCAA at only 23-years-old.

A former All-Western Athletic Conference player at the University of Idaho, Janicek joined the Austin Peay staff as an assistant under then-head coach Mike Johnson, in 2009, following her husband’s transfer to the 101st Airborne Division. When Johnson departed, the program opted to promote Janicek to lead the program in a move that has paid off.
