PHILADELPHIA -- The Nashville Predators needed a little luck for their first shootout win of the season. Cheap Steelers Jerseys .Filip Forsberg got the tying goal midway through the third period and Ryan Ellis had the only score in the shootout, helping Nashville give the Philadelphia Flyers their second straight loss, 2-1 on Monday night.The Flyers had won 10 straight before losing to the Dallas Stars on Saturday.Nashville got its first win in extra time and Ellis his first successful shootout conversion this season. The Predators were 0-5 in overtime and shootouts.Ellis goal stood because Pekka Rinne stopped all three Philadelphia attempts, including a sprawling stop to end it against Jakub Voracek.I got lucky on the last one, Rinne said. He already deked me out and I was just doing the snowman. Luckily, he didnt put it in, so Ill take it any day.Rinne stopped 31 shots, and Steve Mason had 30 saves for Philadelphia.Theres no excuse, said Mason, who played in his 200th game as a Flyer, fourth on the teams career list. Weve got to find ways to come back and have energy and win a hockey game.Defenseman Andrew MacDonald scored for the Flyers midway through the first period.After trailing 1-0 entering the third, the Predators tied it with 8:14 remaining when Forsberg planted himself in front of Mason and redirected a point shot by Matt Irwin for his fourth goal of the season.Forsbergs goal came on the Predators 22nd shot and ruined Masons bid for his first shutout since March 5.Rinne, meanwhile, entered the game needing 11 saves to get to 12,000 in his career and he got there quickly, stopping 15 of 16 shots in the opening period.Pekka was phenomenal for us, Ellis said. I think it could have been a lot worse in that first period. He kept us in it. On the penalty kill, he made some big saves and some big blocks. If anything is going to be successful, you are going to need your goalie to be your best player. Tonight was no different. Pekka was great. We finally found a way to win a shootout.MacDonald got his second goal of the season. Right wing Jakub Voracek threaded a backhand pass through two Predators to MacDonald at the right point. His shot appeared to hit Ellis in the arm, changed direction and bounced past Rinne.The Flyers outshot the Predators 16-8 in the opening period and had a chance to double their lead early in the second when Predators defensemen Adam Pardy and Roman Josi took penalties 36 seconds apart. Defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere rang a shot off the post and Mike Fisher blocked two shots to keep the Predators lead at 1-0.Nashville had a chance to tie it midway through the second period when Claude Giroux clipped Craig Smith in the chin for a high-sticking double minor. The Flyers stopped all four shots during the power play to improve to 15 for 15 killing penalties in their last five games.Game notes Predators D P.K. Subban did not make the teams trip to Philadelphia and sat out his second straight game with an upper-body injury. Veteran D Adam Pardy, recalled from AHL Milwaukee earlier in the day, took Subbans spot in the lineup. Subban is doubtful for Tuesday nights game against the Devils.UP NEXTFlyers: Host the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night.Predators: Visit the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night. Camo Steelers Jerseys . Oaklands loss to Seattle clinched the ALs best record for the Red Sox with one day to spare in the regular season. "I think everybody was kind of watching," catcher David Ross said. "Demp (Ryan Dempster) came out before he went to the bullpen and was just yelling that they lost. Terrell Edmunds Stitched Jersey . Westbrook has missed 27 games since having a procedure on Dec. 27 to deal with swelling in his injured right knee — the third operation on the knee in nine months. http:///...els-stitched-jersey/ . He said Tuesday thats a big reason why he is now the new coach of the Tennessee Titans. Whisenhunt said he hit it off quickly with Ruston Webster when interviewing for the job Friday night. 1. Choosing career over countryThis was always going to be a possibility. When the PGA Tour decided to schedule a regular tournament during the week of the Olympics, it put in play the chance that someone would have to pick playing for his job over playing for his country.That was the case when Camilo Villegas reluctantly elected to pull out of the Olympic golf tournament at the deadline a few weeks ago. That left Colombia without a representative this week in Rio de Janeiro while Villegas will fight to stay exempt at this weeks John Deere Classic.Villegas is having a rough season on the PGA Tour, currently ranked 146th in the FedEx Cup standings. He needs to be among the top 125 after next weeks Wyndham Championship or face the four-tournament Finals to try to retain his PGA Tour status.The four-time PGA Tour winner called the decision incredibly difficult but opted to play this weeks John Deere Classic as well as next week at the Wyndham. Even if he had elected to play in Rio, it would have been a long commute to Greensboro (site of the Wyndham) to try to save his card -- even more difficult after giving up more ground to those who stayed and played on the PGA Tour during the Olympic tournament.Who could blame him?2. It never should have come to this.Of course Villegas -- or any player in that position -- should have never been forced to make such a decision. The PGA Tour needed to not schedule a tournament this week. The LPGA -- which admittedly does not have a full schedule of events -- made sure there was some space prior to and after the Olympics.The fine folks at the John Deere Classic could not have been happy about their date switch -- although they never said so publicly, and played the role of good partners with the PGA Tour.But for all the talk of how important golf in the Olympics was to all of the powers that be -- including commissioner Tim Finchem and one of his top aides, Ty Votaw, who serves as vice president of the International Golf Federation -- it was simply wrong to put another tournament, one that pays prize money and affects tour status, the same week.That being said, juggling the schedule and keeping sponsors happy is no easy task. There are numerous considerations, including television. But given six years notice, something could -- should -- have been done. Move a tournament to the fall? Skip a year? Have an extra opposite event? Something.3. Making changes for 2020Before the Olympic golf is even underway, there is already considerable discussion about what to do in advance of the Games in 2020. Golf is not assured of a spot beyond that, and a decision for 2024 will likely be made sometime next year. What to do?Peter Dawson, president of the International Golf Federation, said clearly that the scheduling for players has to be better managed. But scheduling during the Games is also tricky, and changing the format -- while seemingly a popular view -- is not so easy.The IOC (International Olympic Committee) would not allow an individual competition and a team competition running together, Dawson said. That means separate competitions, which would be very difficult to schedule.That suggests the IGF will have to do some lobbying if it wants a team competition as part of the Olympics going forward.4. Going lowJim Furyks 58 at the Travelers Championship was just the seventh score below 60 in a PGA Tour event, and hes the first to break 59. Furyk, of course, was the last to shoot 59 at the 2013 BMW Championship, making him the only player in the elite group to shoot in the 50s twice. Youth Steelers Jerseys. omewhat interesting is that in four of those instances the player did not go on to win, including Furyk twice. Al Geiberger won in Memphis following his second-round 59 in 1977; David Duval shot a final-round 59 to capture the 1999 Bob Hope Chrysler Classic, and Stuart Appleby also shot a final-round 59 to win the Greenbrier Classic in 2010.The others to shoot 59 and not win were Chip Beck at the 1991 Las Vegas Invitational and Paul Goydos at the 2010 John Deere classic.6. Happy ReunionArgentinas Emiliano Grillo was more than thrilled when his golf clubs finally arrived in Rio de Janeiro on Monday for the Olympic golf tournament. He had tweeted his displeasure on a few occasions about them not arriving. 7. Furyks case for the Ryder CupFuryks 58, his runner-up finish at the U.S. Open, the fact that he missed a good part of the year due to a wrist injury, making it difficult for him to earn enough points ... there is a case to be made for him as a captains pick for the U.S. Ryder Cup team.Captain Davis Love III clearly is thinking about Furyk, and said hes been keeping his own points criteria that takes into account missed time. At age 46, Furyk would provide veteran leadership (although hes already been named a vice captain) and has competed in nine Ryder Cups as well as seven Presidents Cups.But then theres that Ryder Cup record. Furyk has lost 20 matches, the most in U.S. Ryder Cup history. Although he has a decent singles record, hes lost to Sergio Garcia in singles in each of the past two Ryder Cups, the 2012 defeat at Medinah a crushing one for the U.S. side as he blew a 1-up lead with two holes to play by bogeying the last two holes. The U.S. would famously go on to lose that competition with a historic collapse on Sunday.Some of Furyks record is the product of all the U.S. losing -- the same can be said for Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods; all of them have a winning Presidents Cup record, for example.Its not an easy call, but the thought here is Love needs to go with some of the younger players, from which there will be a big pool of candidates. Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler, Matt Kuchar and Brandt Snedeker are all outside of the top eight automatic qualifiers at the moment, and its tough to see Furyk getting picked ahead of any of them.8. Big ... but not that bigGarcia has been soaking up the Olympic experience, attending several events in the lead-up to the games. He has long been all-in on the idea of golf in the Olympics and has spoken favorably about his interest in winning a medal.But hes not willing to go so far as saying such an accomplishment would be the highlight of his career. Garcia, 36, who has never won a major championship, wont even liken the Olympics to one of golfs big four events.No, the pinnacle is coming in about six weeks, Garcia said -- with everyone knowing what he was talking about.Its actually eight weeks away, but the Ryder Cup is what Garcia was noting. The event takes place in late September, with the Europeans looking to extend their winning streak to four. Garcia has played on just two losing European teams and been on five winning ones. He served as an assistant captain at the 2010 event for which he did not qualify.9. No problems in RioU.S. team members Watson, Kuchar, Fowler and Patrick Reed seem to be enjoying themselves this week prior to the Olympic golf competition.
