Kris Russell scores 1:23 into overtime as Flames start road trip with 2-1 win over Predators

NASHVILLE — Kris Russell scored 1:23 into overtime and the Calgary Flames beat the Nashville Predators 2-1 Tuesday night for their sixth straight victory.

TJ Brodie also scored for Calgary, which opened a three-game road trip in style. The Flames improved to an NHL-best 8-1 in overtime and won for just the fourth time away from home this season.

Cody Hodgson scored on his first career penalty shot for Nashville, which lost its second straight at home.

Karri Ramo stopped a shot from Nashville forward Filip Forsberg in the opening seconds of overtime, then Russell finished a 2-on-1 with a wrister past Pekka Rinne on an assist from Johnny Gaudreau for the defenceman's second goal this season.

That gave Calgary its latest win over Nashville after sweeping the series last season.
