NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Vincent Lecavalier scored the only goal in the shootout, and the Philadelphia Flyers started a six-game road trip by edging the Nashville Predators 3-2 Saturday night for their second straight win.

Claude Giroux scored in the first, and Sean Couturier's goal at 13:06 of the third tied it up at 2-2 to help the Flyers reach the shootout.

Steve Mason made 34 saves and stopped Craig Smith, Matt Hendricks and Matt Cullen in the shootout for the win.

Mike Fisher and Colin Wilson each scored for Nashville, which has lost two straight.

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 Oilers.

Their most experienced defenceman on the ice was Roman Josi with 116 career NHL games.
