NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Filip Forsbergs hot stretch continues.Forsberg and Mike Ribeiro each had a goal and an assist to lead the Nashville Predators to a 3-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night.Matt Cullen also scored for Nashville, winner of three straight.Forsbergs seventh goal of the season came with 54 seconds left in the first, capping a three-goal opening period for the Predators.We were able to keep a lot of pucks in the offensive zone and generate a lot of attempts at the net and a lot of offence as well as a lot of good scoring opportunities, Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. It was a good start for us.Forsberg scored from the right side when Ribeiro sent a pass his way from behind the net and the rookie slipped it between Edmonton goaltender Viktor Fasth and the right post.Obviously, its really nice to get that goal — especially that late in the period, Forsberg said. You get three goals up. Its really nice, especially when it wasnt the prettiest one.Forsberg has scored in five consecutive games and has recorded 10 points in his last six games.Benoit Pouliot and Nail Yakupov had the goals for Edmonton, which had its two-game winning streak snapped.Its such a fine line between having great execution and not having it, Edmonton coach Dallas Eakins said. And we were all just a little off. Our D werent getting back quick enough. We were trying to jam it up the wall when the middle was available.Edmonton fell to 0-7-1 against fellow Western Conference teams this season.Ribeiro opened the scoring at 2:51 of the first period.James Neals shot from the right side was stopped by Fasth, but Ribeiro was in front to backhand in the rebound for his fourth of the season.It was a bad reaction, I think, off of the first goal, Edmonton captain Andrew Ference said. The first few minutes were OK, and then after the first goal it was very scrambly.Nashville has scored first in just five of 15 games.Cullen extended the lead at 9:21 of the first. Fasth stopped Seth Joness shot from the high slot, but Cullen connected on a diving backhand that just sneaked inside the right post.Cullen played his first home game of the season. He sustained an upper-body injury in the teams first preseason game and returned for the start of Nashvilles recently completed six-game road trip.Ben Scrivens replaced Fasth at the start of the second period. Fasth stopped 14 of the 17 shots he faced in the first. Scrivens made 18 saves and did not allow a goal.Pouliot got Edmonton on the scoreboard at 31 seconds of the second when he beat Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne with a wrist shot from the top of the left circle.Rinne finished with 21 saves.Yakupov drew the Oilers within a goal when he scored at 14:42 of the second off of a nice pass from David Perron.They are a very skilled team, a fast team and we knew they would push back, Cullen said. I think we would have preferred to probably play a little better in the second and keep the game under control, but sometimes that happens. It was nice to respond with a good third period.NOTES: Nashville D Anton Volchenkov returned to the lineup after serving a four-game suspension for an illegal check to the head of Calgarys Michael Ferland Oct. 31. .

Steve Delabar, Sergio Santos and J.A. Happ walked eight Twins in a six-run bottom of the eighth which saw Minnesota turn a 5-3 deficit into a 9-5 lead, the score by which the home side would win to sweep Thursdays doubleheader. In scoring their six runs in the eighth, the Twins needed only one hit. Santos, tagged with the blown save and the loss, walked the only three hitters he faced and threw three wild pitches, each of which resulted in runs. Manager John Gibbons, stunned after the game, had never seen anything like it. "No, I sure cant remember," said Gibbons. "We just couldnt throw strikes. We didnt pitch good all series. Its cold, okay, but you know what, its cold for both sides. If youre ever going to get to September, October in the playoffs, its going to be cold. We didnt pitch very well. We were in position to win that one and we coughed it up. Its a crappy ending to a crappy day, Ill tell you that." Asked to clarify whether hed heard any of his pitchers or position players griping about the frigid conditions at Target Field, Gibbons wasnt spilling. "No, no complaints about that," he said. The previous franchise record for walks in an inning was seven, set in the first inning of a 13-1 loss to the Red Sox on June 21, 1994. Somebody named Brad Cornett started that game and walked three. Scott Brow picked him up in relief and was responsible for the next four bases on balls. Truly historic and truly vexing for a bullpen that hadnt blown a lead all season; a bullpen that hadnt allowed an inherited run to score, for goodness sakes, until Todd Redmond allowed two of R.A. Dickeys runners to cross in the opening game of the twin bill, a 7-0 defeat. Youll watch the next 38 years of Blue Jays baseball and youll probably never see six runs scored on eight walks, three wild pitches and just one hit, again. "Im obviously one oof the main guys to blame there," said Delabar, who walked the first two hitters and then was lifted for Santos after a sacrifice bunt advanced the runners.dddddddddddd "I put them in a bad situation there behind me. The hitters didnt deserve what we did that inning. That was brutal." Gibbons went to Santos looking for the strikeout but the closer was wild, bouncing slider after slider, giving catcher Dioner Navarro a workout. Three of those spiked breaking pitches got by his catcher, each resulted in a run and suddenly the Twins were ahead. His three walks compounded the issue. "Coming into that situation, I had to be perfect," said Santos. "Looking back now I was trying to be too perfect there. Tough, obviously, when you see your guys, the position players, they go out and play in this cold weather and so many innings. You know, its just a long day and those are just games that youd like." The inning was bizarre enough and long enough to facilitate each of the five stages of grief. First there was denial; could this be happening? Based on the reaction on Twitter, rarely an appropriate gauge of rationality but itll do for the moment, fans were angry. Bargaining followed, with pleas for Santos to throw a strike or to induce an inning-ending double play. Fans sunk into depression once the Twins had taken the lead and by the time it was 9-5 and all hope was lost, they came to accept the result. An ugly night at the office, to be sure, but context is important. This is still a top notch bullpen. It had, to borrow an appropriate adjective from Gibbons, a crappy evening. Its blown only one lead all season and it happened to do so in historic and spectacular fashion. The Blue Jays cant get it back. Its off to Cleveland, 3-3 on the road trip and 8-8 on the season. The relievers likely will have to contribute significantly if the Jays are to knock off the Indians, a playoff wild card team last season. Such is the beauty of baseball. With games almost everyday, theres no time to dwell on the ugly performances.
