Predators Receive Their 1st Home Loss Of The Season To Calgary Flames

Wednesday, October 25, 2017 - by Carmen O'Hagan
Despite being ahead 2-0 until the third period, the Nashville Predators fell to the Calgary Flames in a shootout, making the final 3-2 in favor of the Flames.

Both of the Preds points came from capitalizing off power plays in the first period, with Filip Forsberg putting the first point on the board just 6:29 into the game, and getting his seventh goal of the season so far.
New Predators Captain Roman Josi added the other goal not long after during another Calgary penalty.

“They outplayed us pretty bad five-on-five,” Josi acknowledged after the loss.

The second period went scoreless. Coming back in the third, 19-year-old winger Matthew Tkachuk put one in for Calgary with less than 10 minutes remaining in the game. Then, Micheal Ferland tied the game with only 7:05 to go.

Neither team could score during the five minute overtime period, so the game was sent to a shootout.

Despite Forsberg getting one past Flames goalie Mike Smith in the shootout, Sean Monahan and Matthew Tkachuk both were able to power the puck past Pekka Rinne and give Calgary the win.

“To come back from behind against a really good hockey club, it’s a good growth game for everybody,” said Flames coach Glen Gulutzan.

Drink Up, Chattanooga

I attended the meeting to discuss the placement of the sewage treatment plant at the Cambridge Center in Ooltewah today. My problem with the meeting (aka) dog and pony show, is that the meeting started out with the agenda of the Ooltewah Community Council.  After living in this area for 45+ years I have never heard of this group.  I would like for someone to answer ...

Roy Exum: Vols: ‘Don’t Let Up’

The idea was hatched a couple of years ago. Some Tennessee football fanatic had gotten wind that an Oklahoma player had documented his baptism to havoc inside Neyland Stadium. Offensive lineman Ty Darlington was part of that 2015 double-overtime slugfest against the Vols and, afterwards, remembered OU’s 34-27 win – after being down by 17 points earlier – was an absolute “dissertation” ...
