The Ottawa Senators are looking to rebound from an opening night loss as they visit the Tampa Bay Lightning tonight. Eric Dier Jersey . Listen to the Senators vs. Lightning live tonight on TSN Radio 1200 Ottawa starting at 7pm et. After missing the playoffs last season for the first time since 2011, the Senators opened 2014-15 with Thursdays road loss in Nashville. Ottawa held a 1-0 lead after 40 minutes, but the Predators scored three straight to begin the third period en route to their 3-2 victory. Eric Nystrom was credited with the game-winner, scoring the last of Nashvilles three third-period goals. Alex Chiasson, who was making his Ottawa debut after coming over from Dallas in an offseason trade, scored with 6:12 left in third to cut the deficit to 3-2 but the Sens couldnt pot the equalizer. Kyle Turris also lit the lamp for the Senators, while Craig Anderson stopped 34-of-37 shots. Thursdays game also marked the return of David Legwand to the Music City. The former Preds forward spent all of his 15 NHL seasons in Nashville before being dealt to Detroit at the 2014 NHL Trade Deadline. Legwand signed a two-year deal with Ottawa this past July. Its over and done with, said Legwand. Im happy that its over and done with and I move forward. Ottawa is playing the middle test of a season-opening three-game road trip tonight. The Sens, who were 19-14-8 as the away team last season, will cap the trek Monday in Florida before playing their home opener Thursday against Colorado. The Sens snapped a four-game losing streak in Tampa with a 4-3 shootout win over the Bolts on March 24. Ottawa has claimed two of the last three meetings in this series. Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman scored 71 seconds into the extra session on Thursday to lift Tampa to a 3-2 decision over the visiting Florida Panthers. Another victory in Saturdays tilt would give Tampa its first 2-0 start since the club won three in a row to begin the 2009-10 campaign. Tampa took advantage of Scottie Upshalls interference penalty at the end of the third period, as Hedman converted the power play at the 1:11 mark of OT. During a Florida line change, goaltender Ben Bishop sent a pass up the near boards to Hedman, who skated in from the blue line and wristed a shot over the right shoulder of Roberto Luongo to win it. Ryan Callahan and Tyler Johnson each netted a goal while Valtteri Filppula tallied two assists for the Lightning. Bishop stopped 19-of-21 shots and added an assist on the game-winner from Hedman. Bishop saw his first action since April 8 of last season after missing Tampas opening-round playoff loss to Montreal due to injury. I felt good, said Bishop. It was kind of a tough game, it was hard to get into. I thought our team played well defensively. We have to work on a few things, but its always good to get that first (win) under your belt. The Lightning are beginning the season with four straight games at Amalie Arena before heading out on a five-game road trip. Tampa was 25-10-6 as the host last season. Michel Vorm Jersey . The 2014 edition will be the ninth meeting between the Caps and Vikes in a tradition that dates back to 2005. "Since the original Whitecaps, the club has enjoyed fantastic support from fans in Victoria and all across Vancouver Island," said Whitecaps FC president Bob Lenarduzzi. Victor Wanyama Jersey . MORITZ, Switzerland -- Latvia won a four-man World Cup bobsled race Sunday, while the U. . He was with the New York Jets in 2011 when the NFL locked out their players after they failed to agree on a new contract. Willy went undrafted but was given a look by four NFL teams before heading north.SEATTLE - Before Cesar Ramos took the mound, Joe Maddon raved about how the left-hander had made the transition from reliever to starter and pitched well with Tampa Bays pitching staff thinned by injuries. Then Ramos got battered for three innings by Seattles bats and got no help from a shaky defensive night by the Rays. Ramos was knocked around early by the Mariners in their 12-5 win over the Rays that included video reviews on consecutive batters in the first inning and Seattle ace Felix Hernandez getting ejected in the seventh inning. "We got ambushed. We just sashayed into the canyon and they were firing from both sides," Maddon said. Ramos had allowed only nine total runs and 18 hits all season. By the end of the third inning, hed given up 11 hits and nine runs — although only five of those were earned because of four errors in the first two innings by Tampa Bays defence. The Rays committed three errors in the second inning, tying a franchise record. It was a difficult opening to a West Coast road trip for Maddons crew. "They came out aggressive and I took too long to adjust," Ramos said. "I started pitching backward later and started having more success." Even though Ramos got battered, he settled down and helped save Tampa Bays bullpen by getting through 6 2-3 innings. He didnt allow a hit after the third, retiring the final 12 batters he faced. He set career bests for innings pitched and pitches (114) although few will look beyond the rough beginning. "I appreciate him even more for what he did after the bad start," Maddon said. "A lot of guys would not do what he did, the way he saved the rest of the staff. A lot of guys would have caved right there and he did not cave." Hernandez (4-1) won for the first time in more than a month. He took a shutout bid into the sevennth inning, then gave up a three-run double to Ryan Hanigan with two outs and was pulled. Nabil Bentaleb Jersey. At that point, Hernandez was fuming about the strike zone of plate umpire Mark Ripperger. On his way off the mound, Hernandez had a few words for Ripperger. Hernandez said he couldnt repeat anything he uttered. "Im sure he got his moneys worth. I didnt understand everything he said," Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon said. "I kind of knew it was going to happen because he was not happy." Hernandez rebounded from a rough last four starts. It was his first start for the Rays since Aug. 15, 2012, when he tossed a perfect game at Safeco Field. Asked his thoughts on giving Hernandez a big early lead, Maddon said, "Thats called being sub-optimal." James Jones doubled, singled and scored in each of the first three innings as the Mariners took a 9-0 lead. Robinson Cano drove in Jones twice. They werent alone at providing production at the top of Seattles order. Stefan Romero homered, doubled and singled and Corey Hart had two hits and two RBIs. Justin Smoak hit a two-run homer and Mike Zunino added a solo shot for Seattle. The rare back-to-back replays came in the first inning as Cano and then Hart both barely missed home runs on fly balls that hit the yellow line atop the fence and bounced back. Umpires ruled both balls in play, and their calls were confirmed. Cano wound up with a double on his drive to left field, Hart was thrown out trying for a double on his shot to right. "That was pretty weird. You had nothing to lose by asking them to review them," McClendon said. NOTES: Rays LHP David Price will make his first career start at Safeco Field on Tuesday. Its just his second start against Seattle in his career. ... Cano has reached safely in 21 straight games.
