Recap: Philadelphia vs. Nashville

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Roman Josi netted the deciding score in the seventh round of the shootout, as Nashville topped Philadelphia, 4-3, on Thursday.

Josi, who failed in his only other career shootout try, slid the puck through Steve Mason's pads to end the contest. Carter Hutton kept his team alive with a stop on Wayne Simmonds to open the round, after allowing scores on two previous Philly attempts.

Shea Weber collected a goal and two assists for the Predators, who picked up their first road victory since Dec. 10. David Legwand and Eric Nystrom also tallied to back Hutton's 27 saves in regulation.

"It was big. We obviously haven't won one this year and then getting down and them scoring. We stepped up and got two big goals when we needed them. Then Jos [Roman Josi] was able to go down the ice and put it away for us," Hutton said.

Simmonds also notched three points on a score and two helpers for the Flyers, losers of two in a row on home ice after taking 10 straight.

"We moved our feet, played the way we wanted to play. We had our chances, we played well. We were able to tie it up at the end there. (Mason) did a good job. We need to find a way to get the two points, though," said Flyers captain Claude Giroux.

Andrej Meszaros and Brayden Schenn produced additional offense, while Mason made 34 stops in defeat.

The hosts struck just 1:26 after the opening faceoff. Meszaros carried deep into the Nashville zone, but curiously dished to Simmonds, whose deflected pass back across the crease found Schenn for a tip-in at the left post.

The Preds struck back with 9:03 to play in the first, as Nystrom snuck between two defenders and a Gabriel Bourque pass caromed off his leg and inside the far post.

Nashville failed to click on a brief 5-on-3 edge, but Legwand one-timed a Mike Fisher feed under the crossbar from the top of the right circle during the one-man edge for a 2-1 game at 16:25.

Meszaros joined the rush again on the final shift of the second period, and tied the score on a wrister from the left circle with less than five seconds left.

Weber's rip from the point on the first part of a four-minute advantage put the Predators up 3-2 with 5:10 played in the third period. Mason kept it a one-goal spread by stopping a Craig Smith breakaway on the back end.

Philly failed to capitalize on its next power-play chance, but received another one on a Fisher slash with 3:04 left in regulation. Mason was sent to the bench seconds before a Scott Hartnell tip in the slot of a Kimmo Timonen shot caromed off Simmonds' stick and fluttered over Hutton with 1:24 to play.
