Nashville Predators 3 Winnipeg Jets 2 OT – After a game like this, the question is often about the extra point. Custom Titans Jerseys . Was it a point gained, or a point lost? For Jets head coach Claude Noel and a number of players the thought was it was a point lost because after a very good start to the game, they could not maintain it for a full 60 minutes. For other players, being down 2-1 and tying the game with three minutes left against a very good defensive team was a point gained. The Jets controlled the early going, out-shooting the Predators 7-1, but a Shea Weber power play goal at 15:53 opened the scoring. The Jets have only scored the games opening goal twice this season. Anthony Peluso scored the only goal of the second period to tie the game at one. The goal came on a wrap around and was his first NHL goal. In the third, Patric Hornqvist put home a rebound from the high slot to regain the lead for the Predators, until Blake Wheeler tied the game at 16:59. For Wheeler it was his third of the year and he has now scored in back to back games. The Jets got a late power play but did not register a shot on goal. The Jets have now gone six games without a power play goal. Last season they started with nine power play goals in the first nine games, before going through stretches of no PP goals in eight games and one in 16 games. Craig Smith with his second goal of the year ended the contest at 4:43 of overtime in favour of the Predators. It looked like the Jets were going to get one last rush until the puck bounced over the stick of defenceman Dustin Byfuglien setting the stage for David Legwands pass to Smith. Jets are now 1-1-1 on the road, with three more games on this Central Division trip that continues in Dallas, Saturday (TSN 1290). Jets are 4-5-2 overall on the season. Byfuglien played over 30 minutes in the game and had six shots on goal in a losing cause. The Predators are a very good face-off team, winning 66% of the draws. Matt Cullen led the way winning 15 of 16 from the faceoff circle. The Jets outshot the Predators 36-33, they also missed the net with another 12 attempts and had 24 blocked, six by Shea Weber. "We had a solid first ten minutes," commented Noel post-game. "Text book. But could not sustain it. Its good we came back and got a point but the test is still to be consistent for 60 minutes. We play in spurts. First five minutes of the third we struggled. Bad puck management, no support. We need to take the next step, were 11 games in. But we did some good things. Battled physically, got traffic to the net. We had a great north/south game going then wanted to play cute." Defenceman Mark Stuart was back in the lineup after missing two games due to injury and forward Eric Tangradi played after being a healthy scratch the last three games. Jets were still minus Jim Slater, Jacob Trouba and Chris Thorburn due to injury, while Adam Pardy and Patrice Cormier were healthy scratches. James Wright slipped in the middle on the fourth line and played well. Goaltender Carter Hutton has now stopped 72 of 75 shots in his two games against the Jets. Its back to back for the Jets this weekend as they are in Dallas Saturday and Colorado Sunday before closing out the trip in St. Louis Tuesday. Rashaan Evans Jersey . Bring on Freddy Garcia. The well-travelled 36-year-old right-hander earned his second NL victory since 2007, and his first since he joined the Atlanta Braves last month, pitching six innings to help beat Miami 6-1 Thursday. Harold Landry Titans Jersey . LeBron James believes hes a major reason for their early failures. http://www.titansstoreonline.com/Black-11-Luke-Falk-Womens-Jersey/ .com) - The collective hearts of Chicago Bulls fans sank on Friday night when Derrick Rose went down with a leg injury against the Cleveland Cavaliers. CLEVELAND -- Terry Francona heard the boos from the home crowd, and the Cleveland Indians manager didnt mind one bit. Francona pulled Corey Kluber two outs short of a complete game in Clevelands 4-1 win over Kansas City on Sunday. The crowd of 16,991 wanted to see Kluber, who allowed four hits and struck out 10 in 8 1-3 innings, finish the game, and the fans let Francona know they didnt agree with his decision. "I dont blame them," Francona said. "If I was managing with my heart, Id have left him in there, too." Kluber (8-6) took a three-hitter into the ninth before Eric Hosmer started the inning with a double. The right-hander, who gave up a solo homer to Mike Moustakas in the fifth, was removed after striking out Salvador Perez. Kluber also heard the boos and used the opportunity to take a good-natured jab at his manager. "Kip (second baseman Jason Kipnis) was giving him a hard time, too," he said. "It was pretty funny, I guess." Cody Allen recorded the final two outs for his ninth save, and Carlos Santana and Yan Gomes homered in a three-run second inning. Kluber, who walked one, retired the first seven hitters before Jarrod Dysons infield single with one out in the third. Lorenzo Cain also had an infield hit in the sixth. Kluber has been Clevelands ace all season. He has four double-figure strikeout games. "It sure is nice, man, to write his name in there," Francona said. "He has weapons, he has poise, and he competes." Francona said. Kluber is working to stay on an even keel throughout the season. "Im trying to be as consistent as I can from start to start," Kluber said. "I try to avoid the downs as much as possible and keep the good stuff rolling." Kluber rarely shows any emotion on the mound, but Francona thinks appearances can be misleading. "Hes very locked in," Francona said. "Maybe his demeanour belies the real fire thats in there. He gets after it." Even Moustakas, who walked in the seventh and is 7 for 18 against Kluber, was impressed. "Everything he was throwing was nasty," he said. A lack of run support has kept Kluber from having a better record. He allowed three runs over 20 2-3 innings in his last three sstarts, but lost twice. Titans Jerseys. Kluber held the Dodgers to one run in 6 2-3 innings on Monday, but was the losing pitcher in a 1-0 defeat. Both of Clevelands home runs came off Danny Duffy (5-8). Santana led off the inning with a line drive that barely cleared the fence in right. Gomes followed with a two-run homer to centre. Michael Brantley, who went 2 for 4 to raise his average to .321, had an RBI single in the fifth. Santanas homer came on a 1-1 pitch and was his 13th of the season, tying him with Brantley for the team lead. Ryan Raburn followed with a single, and Gomes hit his 10th home run on a 1-0 pitch. Cleveland has won four of five and moved within two games of second-place Kansas City in the AL Central. The Royals, who trail first-place Detroit by 4 1-2 games, dropped their first road series since losing two of three against the Los Angeles Angels from May 23-25. Duffy allowed 10 hits and struck out six in six innings. The left-hander had a 1.69 ERA in six June starts and was 3-1 with a 1.05 ERA in his last four road starts. The Indians placed leadoff hitter and centre fielder Michael Bourn on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring. Bourn has been battling the injury all season and hurt it again running the bases on Saturday. Left fielder Alex Gordon and designated hitter Billy Butler, who are both in lengthy slumps, were out of Sundays lineup. Gordon is mired in a 3 for 40 skid, and Butler has just three hits in 26 at-bats. NOTES: The Royals signed LHP Scott Downs, who was released by the White Sox on Thursday. He pitched a scoreless seventh inning. RHP Casey Coleman was optioned to Triple-A Omaha. ... The Indians called up OF Tyler Holt from Triple-A Columbus to take Bourns roster spot.
