the fifth time in 15 attempts

CALGARY - Calgary and Nashville entered the night ranked 28th and 29th offensively, but you never would have known it. Cheap Jerseys From China . Shea Weber scored twice, including the go-ahead goal late in the third period, Friday night as the Predators, despite blowing two leads, escaped with a 6-5 victory over the Calgary Flames. Tied 4-4 and with the Predators on the power play, Weber took a perfect feed from Matt Cullen and fired a slapshot past Joey MacDonald from the face-off dot to put Nashville back into the lead at 14:28. On a night that featured ugly plays defensively from both sides, even the go-ahead goal was no thing of beauty either, Weber admitted. "I missed it," said the Predators defenceman. "I was trying to go up with it to be honest with you and it kind of went off the heel of my stick and I got lucky." Webers 18th goal ties him with Ottawas Erik Karlsson for second in the NHL among defencemen, one back of Winnipegs Dustin Byfuglien. "We didnt expect that coming in. We thought it was going to be a tight-checking, low-scoring game," said Weber. "Obviously its huge to get that many goals. Hopefully that can loosen guys up a bit." Cullen added his seventh goal of the season at 17:08 on a deflection. That would turn out to be the winning goal after Mike Cammalleris second of the night from a scramble 28 seconds later set up a furious final two-and-a-half minutes for the Flames, who buzzed around the Predators net and did everything but tie it against back-up goaltender Carter Hutton. "Its weird how games sometimes trend like that. When it opens up, it opens up," said Hutton, who came in for starter Pekka Rinne after Mikael Backlund tied it 4-4 on the Flames 18th shot at 13:31 of the second. "The fifth one wasnt the best goal Ive ever given up but it squeaks in," said Hutton. "The crowd starts getting into it but weve still got the one-goal lead. Youve got to stay focused and my mindset doesnt change." Victor Bartley, Patric Hornqvist and Viktor Stalberg also scored for Nashville (30-31-10), which snapped a three-game losing skid. Twenty-two-year-old centre Calle Jarnkrok had an assist in his NHL debut. Kris Russell and Jiri Hudler rounded out the scoring for Calgary (28-35-7), which lost for only the third time in its last dozen games at the Scotiabank Saddledome. "Pretty simple - no defence," said Flames head coach Bob Hartley. "Im not pointing at our goalie or our defencemen, by any means. Im talking about our team game." Down 2-0 early, the Flames fought back to tie it 3-3 before falling behind again 4-3. They came from behind one more time to even it 4-4 headed to the third. "We worked very hard to come back a few times in the game, but the way that we were committed defensively tonight, I dont think we had a chance," Hartley said. After the game, the Flames announced that Joni Ortio, who started but was pulled after surrendering four goals on 13 shots, was being returned to Abbotsford in the American Hockey League now that Karri Ramo (knee) is ready to return to the line-up for Saturdays game in Edmonton. Hartley was quick to absolve Ortio from blame for the defeat. "It was not an easy night for him but the way we executed in the first period," said Hartley. "Us, as a team, we put our goalie in that situation. I dont think we can blame Joni Ortio by any means for this loss. That was a team loss and were much better than what we showed tonight." Leading 2-1 after the first period, Nashville increased its margin to two when Hornqvist batted in a centring pass out of the air. It was the first of five goals in a wide open, back and forth and middle period. Cammalleri drew the Flames back to within one at 6:23 and 51 seconds later, Hudler tipped in Mark Giordanos snapshot from the blue-line to tie it 3-3. "That was an old-school game, I guess. It was back and forth. We did a lot of great things and had a lot of good spurts, especially offensively, but we gave way too many chances off the rush," said Giordano, who had two assists and leads all NHL defencemen with 13 points in March. March has also been good for Cammalleri, who is tied with Jarome Iginla and Jonathan Toews for the most goals in the month with nine. "One thing were proud of, especially in the last little while, is not giving up as many chances. Tonight, we would like to do a better job of that." Hutton stopped 10-of-11 shots to earn the victory and improve to 16-11-4. MacDonald was tagged with the loss to fall to 4-4-1. He had six saves on eight shots in relief. Nashville got off to a fast start beating Ortio on both of its first two shots in the opening period. At 5:10, Bartley scored his first NHL goal, one-timing a slapshot through Ortios pads. Just 49 seconds later, Weber finished off a give-and-go with Mike Fisher on an odd-man rush. Notes: Kenny Agostino made his NHL debut for the Flames. He played left wing on a line with rookies Sean Monahan and Joe Colborne. Agostinos parents flew in from New Jersey for the game... Calgary RW Jiri Hudler (upper body) returned after missing seven games... Sidelined with upper body injuries sustained in Nashvilles last game were LW Nick Spaling, RW Patrick Eaves and C Paul Gaustad.... Agostino is the eighth player to make his NHL debut with the Flames this season.

Or, for that matter, the aged.CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Billy Hamilton had a keepsake ball from his best all-around game. Hamilton hit his first career homer and Chris Heisey singled home the tiebreaking run in the sixth inning, sending the Cincinnati Reds past the Chicago Cubs 3-2 Tuesday night in a game delayed three times because of rain. The game started 19 minutes late. There was a 15-minute delay in the top of the fifth and a 1-hour, 11-minute delay in the bottom of the sixth.

Zack Cozart tripled to right-centre with two outs in the sixth, and Heiseys pinch-hit single put the Reds ahead as heavy rain started to fall and the third rain delay followed. "I havent had a lot of opportunities lately, but I make it a point to stay ready," said Heisey, who is 4 for 10 with six RBIs off the bench. Alfredo Simon (4-1) gave up five hits, including Starlin Castros two-run single, before Heisey pinch-hit for him. Simon has filled in while Mat Latos recovers from knee surgery and a sore pitching forearm. "Im not surprised that hes been competitive," manager Bryan Price said. "Whats been surprising at times is how much of a shut-down pitcher hes been. Were happy that hes been presented with the opportunity and run with it. Hes been a key cog." Jonathan Broxton retired all three batters in the ninth for his fifth save in five chances. The Cubs have lost five of their last six games, falling to 8-17. The series opener on Monday was postponed because of rain and hasnt been rescheduled.

He scored twice, giving him 12 runs this season. "Every day I come in here, Im trying to do something good for the team, whether its a sacrifice fly or a stolen base or scoring a big run," Hamilton said. "It was fun today." Hamilton opened the first inning with a walk, stole second and took third on a wild pitch. Brandon Phillips sacrifice fly made it 1-0. Hamilton had an infield single in the third and was thrown out by catcher Welington Castillo, the fifth time in 15 attempts that hes been caught stealing this season. The Cubs loaded the bases in the third on singles by Emilio Bonifacio and Ryan Kalish and a walk to Anthony Rizzo. Castro singled up the middle on the first pitch for a 2-1 lead. Hamilton shortened to bunt twice in the fifth inning before hitting his first career homer to right field, tying it 2-all. Cubs second baseman Darwin Barney made the best defensive play of the game. He went up the middle to reach Ryan Ludwicks grounder in the fourth, got to the ball on the third base side of the bag and threw Ludwick out from the outfield grass.
