Thomas Novak and Yakov Trenin also scored for Nashville, which is 4-0-1 in its last five games to inch closer to a playoff position in the Western Conference.

McDonagh's goal with 3:16 left was a highlight-reel move to the net and finish by the defensive defenseman far more known for keeping the puck out of his team's net.

Sonny Milano and Nicolas Aube-Kubel scored for the Capitals, and Charlie Lindgren made 19 saves. Washington has lost three of its past five games and had a nine-game point streak snapped.

PANTHERS 3, RED WINGS 2

Connor's record-setting goal at 5:38 of the third moved him past Ilya Kovalchuk for the most winners in Jets-Atlanta Thrashers history.

Pierre-Luc Dubois scored twice and Morgan Barron helped seal Winnipeg's fourth straight win, scoring short-handed into an empty net with 1:26 remaining. Connor also had an assist. Josh Morrissey added three assists and Mark Scheifele had two. Connor Hellebuyck stopped 26 shots.

Capitals get cooled off by the Predators at home

As well as the Washington Capitals have been playing lately, it stood to reason it would take something special for the Nashville Predators to beat them — especially at Capital One Arena. And Ryan McDonagh produced a moment of extraordinary skill late in the third period to hand Washington a 3-2 loss.

With 3:16 remaining in a taut game that appeared destined for overtime, McDonagh sped into the offensive zone, collected a pass from Ryan Johansen on his forehand, went airborne to avoid the leg of Capitals goalie Charlie Lindgren as he crossed the crease, then found the puck again on his backhand and tucked it into the far corner of the net as he went sliding into the boards.

McDonagh said afterward it was a set play that “kind of lost its way.” Capitals Coach Peter Laviolette was unhappy his team allowed itself to get caught out by McDonagh’s rush.

The visitors made the dazzling goal hold up, handing the Capitals (22-14-6) their first regulation loss since Dec. 15. It also ended Washington’s nine-game point streak.

“Both teams were competing hard,and there wasn’t a lot of room out there to make plays,” defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk said. “You just have to accept that and get pucks in deep. I thought we played pretty good, just didn’t find a way to see it through.”

The game matched a pair of teams playing the second half of a back-to-back (both coming off wins), though it was hard to tell. The contest was knotted at 2 entering the third period. The Capitals had a prime power-play opportunity after Lars Ellar drew a holding penalty with 9:43 remaining but failed to convert. Washington was 0 for 3 with the man advantage.

Thomas Novak gave the Predators (18-14-6) an early lead with a wrister from inside the right circle only 4:10 into the game. The Capitals answered a little more than five minutes later when Sonny Milano tapped in a rebound goal at the right post just after a power play expired.

It was Milano’s fourth goal in his past eight games. The 26-year-old forward, whom the Capitals signed in mid-October to a one-year, $750,000 deal, continued his run of strong play, especially in the offensive zone, getting to pucks with speed and finishing with flare. He was double-shifted later in the game.

Yakov Trenin put the visitors up 2-1 with 4:51 left in the first after he batted a rebound out of the air and past Lindgren (18 saves).

Lindgren kept Washington in the game with a string of stellar saves in the second, including a sequence of three consecutive stops, one with his arm after he lost his stick.

Nicolas Aube-Kubel made up for two early minor penalties with a goal midway through the second period, tying the game at 2 with 8:53 left. He deked past Nino Niederreiter and then put the puck through the legs of Nashville netminder Kevin Lankinen (30 saves) for the equalizer.

Aliaksei Protas was a healthy scratch for the first time. Protas, who turned 22 on Friday, has played in 41 games this season and scored three goals to go with seven assists while playing primarily on the fourth line for the past month.

The Capitals could send Protas down to the team’s American Hockey League affiliate in Hershey, Pa., as soon as Saturday to make room for the imminent return of Nicklas Backstrom and Tom Wilson. Because of his age and contract status, Protas does not need to clear waivers before he is loaned to Hershey.

While Backstrom and Wilson did not dress for Friday’s game, there remains hope that one — or both — forwards will play at home Sunday against Columbus. Laviolette remained vague on their status Friday afternoon.

“We’ll see where things are at. See after [Friday night] where everything’s at with them [Saturday] and go from there,” Laviolette said.

“They’ve been practicing in full, skating in full, contact in full. Everything’s been full for them,” Laviolette said of the pair. “They’re just in the same mode of continuing to push to get to where they want to be [and] where we want them to be.”

While Aube-Kubel was dinged for two minor penalties in the first period — one for holding, one for roughing — he scored for the second time in as many games in the second period, giving him his first two goals in a Capitals sweater.

“He got going again,” Laviolette said. “Just his speed and he’s got a skill level to him. He brings a physical presence, and it was a big goal at the time.”

Anthony Mantha was again on the fourth line, this time skating next to Nic Dowd and Garnet Hathaway. The forward, who is making $5.7 million this season and next, saw just 9:48 of ice time and has one goal in his past 11 games.

Nashville Predators (16-14-6) vs. Washington Capitals (21-13-6)

The Line: Washington Capitals -159 / Nashville Predators +126; Over/Under: +9.5 (Click here for latest betting odds)

The Nashville Predators and the Washington Capitals meet in NHL action from the Capital One Arena on Friday night.

The Nashville Predators come into this one on the back-to-back after battling the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday. Heading into Thursday, Filip Forsberg has 33 points with 14 goals and 19 assists while Mikael Granlund has 24 points with his own 20 assists and Matt Duchene has 28 points with 17 assists on the year. Roman Josi has 30 points with 21 assists and Nino Niederreiter’s also chipped in 12 goals while Ryan Johansen has 9 goals as well on the year. Juuse Saros has gone 13-10-5 with a 2.76 GAA and a .915 save percentage between the pipes for Nashville while Kevin Lankinen is 3-4-1 with a 2.91 GAA and a .916 save percentage.

The Washington Capitals will also be on the back-to-back after taking on Columbus on Thursday. Entering Thursday, Alex Ovechkin has a team-high 47 points with a team-high 28 goals and 19 assists. Dylan Strome also has 28 points with 20 assists while Evgeny Kuznetsov also has a team-high 28 assists as part of his 34 points up to this point in the year. Darcy Kuemper has gone 10-9-4 with a 2.58 GAA and a .916 save percentage while Charlie Lindgren is 11-4-2 with a 2.57 GAA and a .914 save percentage this season.

Nashville is 1-7 in their last 8 games against a team with a winning record and 2-7 in their last 9 games played on no rest while the over is 5-2 in their last 7 games overall. Washington is 11-3 in their last 14 games overall and 7-3 in their last 10 home games while the under is 5-0-1 in their last 6 games played on no rest.

This is a bit of a tricky one with both teams on the back-to-back, but I just trust the Capitals more right now between these two teams. Washington’s at least putting their best foot forward most nights to help with Alex Ovechkin’s goal chase while the Preds are the mixed bag and you never know which version of the Preds are going to show up. All in all, I think the Caps are just the better team here if nothing else. Give me the Capitals.

‘Everybody’s welcome at our table’: Arnold’s Country Kitchen closes its doors after 40+ years

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — After serving up some of Nashville’s favorite southern foods for more than four decades, Arnold’s Country Kitchen finally closed its doors on Saturday.“We have family that comes in from Jersey, from Florida, from Nebraska.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — After serving up some of Nashville’s favorite southern foods for more than four decades, Arnold’s Country Kitchen finally closed its doors on Saturday.

“We have family that comes in from Jersey, from Florida, from Nebraska. This is number one to go for lunch,” said Chris Howell, an Arnold’s customer for 30 years.

For co-owner Kahlil Arnold and his family, their restaurant has been a labor of love.

“The restaurant is like a part of our family. I mean, everybody that comes in here, to me, is a part of our family,” Arnold said.

The family admitted that Nashville’s growth has been hard to keep up with.

“Anybody in the downtown area knows that property taxes have been no fun,” Arnold explained. “You know, we could move out to Brentwood and for the same area we’d be paying about 10 grand, and in Nashville we pay about 80 grand.”

He added that closing down was no easy decision.

“My message forward would be go out and visit the McCabe’s Pub, go out and visit the Wendell Smith’s, the Swett’s, the Prince’s, the mom and pop businesses. I mean, just go out and visit, take care of the small business. I mean, that’s what Nashville was born and bred on,” Arnold said.

Customers thought back to simpler times as they enjoyed their last meal at Arnold’s on Saturday, Jan. 7.

“It’s just a meat and three, just good, wholesome country cooking. A lot of places will call it soul food,” longtime Arnold’s customer Alan Blankenship described. “It’s got different names, it’s just a lot of love put into it and keeps you warm on a cold day.”

“It’s kind of like everything else in Nashville, the reason we were the ‘it’ city’s kind of gone and it’s going,” he added.

One thing that won’t outgrow this family is their love for Nashville

“We’ve always tried to be ‘everybody’s welcome at our table.’ And the people of Nashville has always given that to us,” Arnold said. “And if anything, just spread that word — that everybody’s welcome at every table.”

One silver lining in all of this, as Arnold’s told News 2, is that they will be back in some form or fashion, but those plans are still very much in the works.

Nashville suburb sues Tennessee Historical Commission over Confederate-named streets

During the late 1950s and early 1960s — in an era marked by desegregation and white flight — a pair of real estate development firms built a residential enclave in the Nashville suburb of Forest Hills and drew inspiration from the Civil War to name its streets.The developers named one of the entrances to the Tyne Valley Estates subdivision Robert E.

During the late 1950s and early 1960s — in an era marked by desegregation and white flight — a pair of real estate development firms built a residential enclave in the Nashville suburb of Forest Hills and drew inspiration from the Civil War to name its streets.

The developers named one of the entrances to the Tyne Valley Estates subdivision Robert E. Lee Drive, which connects to Confederate Drive and General Forrest Court. They named another main thoroughfare Jefferson Davis Drive. Smaller side streets are named Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis Courts.

The City of Forest Hills has now filed a lawsuit against the Tennessee Historical Commission asserting the agency has no authority to stop them from renaming the subdivision’s streets.

The lawsuit seeks a ruling allowing Forest Hills to rename six specific streets in Tyne Valley Estates, but the case could have broader implications for suburban communities across Tennessee seeking to rid themselves of Confederate-themed street and subdivision names.

The lawsuit claims that the state’s Heritage Protection Act does not apply to subdivisions, which are typically built on private property by private developers who construct and name roadways long before they formally are recognized as public streets.

The Heritage Protection Act requires formal approval from the 29-member historical commission before public memorials, including street names and statues, may be removed or renamed. The law was enacted in 2013 in response to a series of public controversies over removing Tennessee’s public Confederate memorials.

The City of Forest Hills in Davidson County seeks a ruling to allow the renaming of six streets, but the case could have broader implications for suburban communities across Tennessee seeking to rid themselves of Confederate-era street and subdivision names.

The law defines public memorials, in part, as “any statue, monument, memorial, bust, nameplate, plaque, artwork, flag, historic display, school, street, bridge, or building that has been erected for, named, or dedicated on public property in honor of any historic conflict, historic entity, historic event, historic figure, or historic organization.”

Forest Hills’ officials have argued that the law does not apply to subdivision streets mapped out, constructed and named by developers before they become public property. Residents have complained, they said, and urged the city to rename the streets.

“We have subdivision streets, the names of which were selected by developers in the 1950’s and early 1960s,” Marshall Albritton, the city’s attorney, told the historic commission in September, after the city brought a petition that asked the commission to find it has no jurisdiction over the subdivision’s street names.

“Of course people back then — the developers back then — had certain ideas about whom they would like to honor so they honored the individuals who are mentioned in our petition,” he said. “But that had nothing whatsoever to do with the city. This land was privately owned. The city has no input into the naming of that subdivision.”

Albritton told the commissioners that Forest Hills, like many cities, has authority over road specifications and inspections when subdivisions are being built, but no say in how the roads or subdivisions are named.

“We have no standards whatsoever about the naming of those streets,” he said. “It appears that that’s pretty common. You might think for a minute that maybe cities should have some standards, but I suspect the reason they don’t is developers are usually sufficiently motivated to pick attractive names of streets, otherwise people might not want to live on those streets.”

A majority of the commission’s members rejected Albritton’s arguments in a decision issued in November, concluding that state law did not explicitly require that a memorial, including a street name, was “named or dedicated by a public entity” and that it was “sufficient” that the roads are now public property.

On a separate track to its lawsuit, the city has also petitioned the historic commission for permission to change the street names. The board will consider that petition at its February meeting.

The city filed suit in Davidson County Chancery Court on December 20 seeking a judicial ruling that it does not need the commission’s permission. No hearing has yet been set in the case.
