    where fans had hoped to watch him in a Nashville sweater, rookie Jimmy Vesey got
    the last word.Vesey and Mats Zuccarello each scored in the shootout, helping the
    New York Rangers beat the Nashville Predators 2-1 Saturday night as the NHLs
    best road team added yet another win to its record.The rookie came out to shoot
    first for the Rangers for his first shootout attempt this season to another
    heavy chorus of boos. Vesey skated up and beat Juuse Saros with a wrister over
    the goalies stick.Actually practiced some breakaways this morning, Vesey said.
    They usually go to my backhand. But Ive been working on faking my backhand and
    going to the forehand and just trying to flip it over his pad, and luckily it
    snuck in.Then Zuccarello scored to end the game.Rick Nash scored in regulation,
    and the Rangers improved to 11-5-0 away from New York in finishing off a
    two-game road swing with a second straight victory. Henrik Lundqvist made 31
    saves, including stopping Ryan Johansen to start the shootout. Craig Smiths shot
    went wide for Nashville in the second round.Mike Fisher scored for Nashville,
    which has lost two straight and four of the last five. The Predators have lost
    all five games this season that have gone to overtime or a shootout.We had our
    chances, Fisher said of Saturdays game. Overtime and shootouts just havent been
    our friend for whatever reason. Its frustrating. That was a huge game. We have
    to start winning those games.Saturday night marked Veseys debut in Nashville,
    the left wing the Predators drafted No. 66 overall only to see him spurn the
    franchise and go to free agency after the Hobey Baker winner wrapped up his
    college career at Harvard. The Predators traded his rights to Buffalo, then
    Vesey chose the Rangers.Fans made it clear how unhappy they were at his decision
    by booing and chanting at him almost every time he came on the ice. They booed
    heavily once again as he came out to shoot first for the Rangers in the
    shootout. Once he beat Saros, a smattering of Rangers fans cheered
    loudly.Obviously we know the whole storyline, but I thought he handled it great
    and certainly comes through in a big situation there, Rangers defenseman Ryan
    McDonagh said. I liked the challenge there that our coach does by putting him
    out first, but way to come through there to get his first goal in a
    shootout.Lundqvist kept the Rangers in the game in the third as Nashville
    outshot them 14-6 in the period. His biggest came with a pad save on James Neal
    with 2:32 left as Neal beat a sprawling Dan Girardi on a breakaway chance.Our
    goaltender really stepped up in the third period, Rangers coach Alain Vigneault
    said.In overtime, Nashville got lucky when the puck went across the crease just
    outside the goal line with 3:10 left. Lundqvist got help from Zuccarello
    blocking a shot from Johansen in the slot with 90 seconds left.Nash put a
    wrister top shelf from a tough angle from the left for a 1-0 lead on New Yorks
    seventh shot at 7:47. He beat defenseman Petter Granberg, who played with P.K.
    Subban scratched with an upper-body injury.Nashville finally tied it up nearly
    midway through the second when Fisher took advantage of a screen in front by
    Colin Wilson to score from the high slot. The goal was Fishers 100th with the
    Predators.Game notes This was just the third time these teams have gone beyond
    regulation in 23 games all-time. ... Nash extended his points streak against the
    Predators to six straight with six goals in that span. ... Nick Holden, who had
    an assist on Nashs goal, now has seven points (five goals, two assists) in eight
    career games against the Predators. ... Fisher now has three goals in his past
    four games. ... Bridgestone Arena, home to the Predators, celebrated its 20th
    anniversary this weekend with the Predators 16th sellout this season.UP

    sides are in awe of his team but says Saturdays opposition Melbourne Victory
    arent one of them.The Sky Blues will host fierce rivals Victory full of
    confidence after catapulting themselves to the top of the A-League ladder with
    four wins from as many games.Its a club record start that Arnold believes has
    struck fear in opposing outfits.Im definitely seeing 1-2 teams so far have been
    in awe of us, Arnold said on Thursday.Newcastle played a back five last week
    which showed us straightaway that theres a great amount of respect for us and
    they were in fear of us.I think thats the type of aura were getting at the
    moment. The players are walking with a swagger. Theyre very confident and were
    very confident in what theyre doing.However the third-year Sydney FC manager
    shied away from inciting Victory coach Kevin Muscat and instead praised their
    form so far this season.Third-placed Victory have strung together back-to-back
    wins since being embarrassed by neighbourhood rivals Melbourne City, including a
    66-1 pummelling of Wellington Phoenix on Monday night.ddddddddddddsked if he
    thought Victory would fear his team, Arnold said: No, I dont think Melbourne
    will. Kevin Muscat has been doing and has done a fantastic job at Melbourne.I
    know theyre going to come up and be full of aggression, full of passion. Theyve
    got some very good players, but so have we. We have to match that aggression.And
    if he thought Victory had any weak points for him to target, Arnold refused to
    divulge any.Its about the performance on the day. Kevin is a fantastic coach and
    motivates his team very well and gets them ready. For us its about being better
    than them, he said.With a full squad at his disposal, Arnold added attackers
    Bernie Ibini and George Blackwood to an extended squad on Thursday.However the
    only change he is likely to make is the re-insertion of veteran David Carney on
    the left flank and return of captain Alex Brosque to the bench. ' ' '
