Flyers edge Predators 3-2 in shootout
PHILADELPHIA 3, NASHVILLE 2 (OT)

By TERESA M. WALKER
AP Sports Writer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Vincent Lecavalier scored the only goal
in the shootout, and the Philadelphia Flyers started a six-game
road trip by edging the Nashville Predators 3-2 Saturday night
for their second straight win.

Claude Giroux scored in the first period, and Sean Couturier's
goal at 13:06 of the third tied it up at 2-2 to help the Flyers
reach the shootout.

Steve Mason made 34 saves and stopped Craig Smith, Matt
Hendricks and Matt Cullen in the shootout for the win.

Mike Fisher and Colin Wilson each scored for Nashville, which
has lost two straight.

The Predators were playing their fourth game in six nights and
without captain Shea Weber who is day to day with an eye injury
after taking a puck to the face in Thursday night's 3-0 loss to
the Oilers.

Their most experienced defenseman on the ice was Roman Josi with
116 career NHL games.

Mason gave the Flyers a chance to win in the shootout. He had a
big save inside the final 30 seconds of regulation when Seth
Jones passed to David Legwand for a shot in front.

In overtime, Wilson hit a post at 2:30, and Mason stopped him on
a breakaway with about 30 seconds left. Matt Read was wide on a
shot on Nashville goalie Marek Mazanec during the extra period.

In the shootout, Lecavalier was the first shooter for the Flyers
and beat Mazanec with a forehand. Giroux was stopped at the
post, but the Flyers didn't need a third shooter when Cullen
missed.

Not only did Nashville not have their leading goal-scorer in
Weber, but defenseman Kevin Klein also was out for the Predators
with a lower body injury, their team leader with 58 blocked
shots.

The Flyers missed a prime chance at scoring on their lone power
play of the first period when a shot slipped under Mazanec and
was lying just near the line only to be poked away by
Philadelphia forward Jakub Voracek. The Flyers went 0-for-3 with
the man advantage.

A couple of minutes after the power play ended, the Flyers took
advantage of a Nashville turnover as Giroux scored on a slap
shot that went up into the net over Mazanec at 16:49.

The Predators answered right back a minute later when Fisher's
snap shot from the left circle beat Mason five-hole.

Giroux hit the post during the Flyers' second power play early
in the third period, and Nashville killed it off.

Then Wilson put a backhand under Mason's left leg at 5:05 to put
Nashville ahead 2-1. Couturier tied it up when Andrej Meszaros
found him in front at 13:06.

Notes: The Flyers are 1-1 in the shootout this season and 11-3-1
when scoring first. ... Fisher has three goals in four games,
and Nashville is 4-2-0 when he scores this season. ... Wilson's
goal was the 50th of his career. ... Cullen played his 1,100th
career game.
