Lille substitute Jonathan Delaplace capitalized on a turnover from Marco Verratti inside the area to score a consolation goal in the last minute. "We rediscovered a PSG clinical in front of goal," PSG coach Laurent Blanc said. "Its been a while since we last scored three goals." The hosts were down to 10 men in the 36th when Lille midfielder Marvin Martin was sent off for a stamp on Yohan Cabayes right ankle. Cabaye was carried off and replaced by Ezequiel Lavezzi in the 42nd. Blanc rested Brazil defender Thiago Silva and Uruguay forward Edinson Cavani.

. Canada was placed in one of the easiest groups during Saturdays live televised draw in Montreal.The unexpected leaders in the Central Division, the Nashville Predators are rolling following one of their best performances in franchise history as they travel to the nations capital to battle the sputtering Ottawa Senators Thursday night. Viewers in the Senators region can watch all the action starting at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt on TSN5 or listen on TSN Radio 1200 Ottawa starting at 5:30pm et/2:30pm pt. The Senators have dropped four of five (1-2-2) after giving up three third-period tallies in Saturdays 4-2 defeat at Calgary to conclude a 1-1-1 trip through Western Canada. Robin Lehner will get the start for Ottawa between the pipes. We had a chance to steal two points and make it a heck of a road trip, but instead we come back .500, said right wing Bobby Ryan, who scored his fourth goal of the season. I dont think that will sit very well with anybody. The power play shouldnt, either. Ottawa has failed to convert on its last 14 chances on the man advantage over the past four games, including six against the Flames. (The power play) has been a positive for us all season but (Saturday) we got away from it, Ryan said. The things that we see a lot of nights, we didnt get pucks to the net very well, and the pucks we did come up with, we were staying on the wall too long and letting them get back into situations where they could set up. Four of Clarke MacArthurs team-high eight goals have come on the power play, but his even-strength tally Saturday ended a four-game drought. He has no goals in seven career meetings with Nashville. The Predators are looking to win for the sixth time in seven games. Nashville (12-4-2) missed the playoffs in each of the past two years, and fired Barry Trotz - its only coach in team history. Peter Laviolette, though, has gotten the Predatoors to quickly regroup as their 26 points are only one behind Pittsburgh and Anaheim for the most in the NHL. Thomas Vermaelen Barcelona Jersey
. They hadnt scored more than four goals in a game this season until Tuesday, when 15 players registered a point in a 9-2 romp at Toronto. It was the third time in team history Nashville scored nine times, with the previous effort coming against Calgary on March 18, 2006. We were good offensively, everyone was making plays, said left wing Taylor Beck, who had career highs of two goals and three points versus the Maple Leafs. Those games are fun. You know theyre not all gonna be like that, but theyre fun to play, certainly for the winning team. Filip Forsberg, who had two points Tuesday, seems to be having a great time lately. The right wing has eight goals and seven assists in nine games and leads the team with nine goals and 13 assists overall. He had two third-period assists as Nashville rallied for a 3-2 home win over the Senators (8-5-4) in its season opener Oct. 9. The Predators, 6-3-1 on the road, have won three of four visits to Ottawa, and Pekka Rinne had 34 saves in the most recent one March 10. However, he was beaten three times in the third period before Seth Jones scored with 1:11 left in overtime of a 4-3 victory. Rinne only needed 18 stops against the Senators on opening night, and he made 29 saves Tuesday to get his 12th win, which ties Vancouvers Ryan Miller for the league lead. His 1.92 goals-against average ranks fourth in the NHL, but he owns a 3.92 mark while winning two of three games at Ottawa.
