Colborne's goal in SO lifts Flames over Predators
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Joe Colborne scored the only goal of the shootout to lift the Calgary Flames to a 3-2 win over the Nashville Predators Tuesday night.
T.J. Brodie and Mark Giordano also scored for Calgary, which improved its record to 2-2-0.
Filip Forsberg and Mike Ribeiro scored for Nashville, which suffered its first loss of the season.
Forsberg scored the game's first goal at 8:46 of the opening period. From the high slot, Derek Roy sent a pass toward Forsberg at the left faceoff dot, where beat Calgary goaltender Karri Ramo with a one-timer for his first goal of the season.
Ramo had 19 saves in regulation and overtime.
Brodie tied the game just over a minute later when he drove the left side and his backhander went up the stick of Predators defenseman Anton Volchenkov and over the shoulder of goaltender Pekka Rinne.
Giordano gave Calgary its first lead at 5:19 of the second on a power-play goal.
With Nashville's Colin Wilson off serving an interference minor, Giordano's wrist shot from the top of the left circle beat Rinne on the short side.
Ribeiro tied the game at 2 at 15:10 of the second.
Craig Smith's shot from above the left circle hit traffic in front then caromed to Ribeiro who was on the right post and scored his first goal as a Predator.
After the Arizona Coyotes bought out Ribeiro's contract in the offseason, the Predators took a chance on the 34-year-old center, signing him to a one-year deal.

Nashville concluded their season-opening three-game homestand. They now head on the road for a back-to-back set in Winnipeg and Chicago Friday and Saturday.
