The Predators were playing their fourth game in six nights and without captain
Shea Weber who is day to day with an eye injury after taking a puck to the face in Thursday night's 3-0 loss to the
Their most experienced defenseman on the ice was
Roman Josi with 116 career NHL games.
Mason gave the Flyers a chance to win in the shootout. He had a big save inside the final 30 seconds of regulation when
Seth Jones passed to
David Legwand for a shot in front.
In overtime, Wilson hit a post at 2:30, and Mason stopped him on a breakaway with about 30 seconds left.
Matt Read was wide on a shot on Nashville goalie
Marek Mazanec during the extra period.
In the shootout, Lecavalier was the first shooter for the Flyers and beat Mazanec with a forehand. Giroux was stopped at the post, but the Flyers didn't need a third shooter when Cullen missed.
Not only did Nashville not have their leading goal-scorer in Weber, but defenseman
Kevin Klein also was out for the Predators with a lower body injury, their team leader with 58 blocked shots.
The Flyers missed a prime chance at scoring on their lone power play of the first period when a shot slipped under Mazanec and was lying just near the line only to be poked away by Philadelphia forward
Jakub Voracek. The Flyers went 0-for-3 with the man advantage.
A couple of minutes after the power play ended, the Flyers took advantage of a Nashville turnover as Giroux scored on a slap shot that went up into the net over Mazanec at 16:49.
The Predators answered right back a minute later when Fisher's snap shot from the left circle beat Mason five-hole.
Giroux hit the post during the Flyers' second power play early in the third period, and Nashville killed it off.
Then Wilson put a backhand under Mason's left leg at 5:05 to put Nashville ahead 2-1. Couturier tied it up when
Andrej Meszaros found him in front at 13:06.
