Nashville also has dropped four of its past six road games

AUGUSTA, Ga. Johnny Cueto Jersey . -- Adam Scott is relishing every part of being Masters champion. The drive up Magnolia Lane. A couple of practice rounds with his dad. Wearing the green jacket. And, certainly, the champions dinner Tuesday night. But before anyone gets worked up about having to eat "bugs," no worries -- thats just Aussie-speak for a type of lobster. Scott went with surf-and-turf off the barbie for his Down Under-themed menu, so he doesnt expect too many complaints. "I think they are going to be pretty happy with what I serve up," he said with a sly smile, "particularly the wine." A year later, Scott is back at the scene of his greatest triumph, a thrilling playoff victory over Angel Cabrera that gave the 33-year-old Australian his first major championship. The breakthrough, after so many close calls and missed chances, has propelled him to the greatest run of his career, including top-five finishes at both the U.S. Open and British Open. Scott knows he has the game to add another major title or two to his resume. Hes eager to take advantage of it. "Im at the highest level Ive ever been at," Scott said. "My window of opportunity, I really think, is right now, and I dont know when it will close. So I just have to keep going as hard as I can right now." From the back of the room, his parents, Phil and Pam Scott, looked on proudly. After Adam was done with his interview session, they joined him on the podium for a family photo. Phil Scott is pleased with the way his son has dealt with his increased fame. "You can have respect for everything, from the game to the course to you guys," the father told a small group of reporters. "Youve got a choice to do it nicely or not. If you take the choice to do it nicely, I think you will have a better time." Phil Scott, who once coached his son, got a chance to join him on the course for practice rounds Friday and Sunday. It was the thrill of a lifetime for both of them. The elder Scott said he probably shot in the low 80s, though neither of them took the round too seriously. Instead, they relived some of the moments from Adams victory a year ago, from the clutch birdie putt on the 72nd hole that led the golfer to shout "Cmon, Aussie!" to the 12-footer on the second playoff hole that gave him the green jacket. "My dads been coming here for all these years Ive been playing, so it was nice for him to stand in the middle of the fairway rather than out on the edge," Scott said. "I think he also developed a pretty good appreciation for how good some of the guys are out here, chipping and putting around these greens." Phil agreed. "This place can make a fool of you," he said, "as it did to me." Not long after Scott finished off Cabrera down at the 10th hole, the winner began thinking of what it would mean to his life. Unlike so many first-time winners who are caught off guard by their newfound fame, he had a keen appreciation for how much things would change. Scott learned to manage his time better, dealing with his increased obligations while making sure it didnt affect the hours he needed to spend at the practice range. In addition, he eagerly relished the perks that came with being a Masters champion. "After winning this tournament last year and everyone asking me what the best thing about it was, I always felt like there would be things in the future that would be great about coming back here for the rest of my life," Scott said. "Ive got lots of those memories to look forward to. Thats why this place is just so unique." With Tiger Woods sidelined by injury, Scott has a chance to move to No. 1 for the first time in his career. He would take over the top spot by finishing no worse than a tie for third. Of course, hes aiming to win another Masters, which would make him just the fourth player to capture back-to-back titles. The other ones to do it: Jack Nicklaus (1965-66), Nick Faldo (1989-90) and Woods (2001-02). "I want to really get my head into playing well this week, because I think Im in good form," Scott said. If he does win another Masters, hell switch up the menu for the next champions dinner. "I would love to have served some meat pies at the cocktail hour, but it couldnt be arranged," Scott said. "Next time, if I get another chance to do it, Id love to serve some meat pies." Buster Posey Jersey . The judge sternly instructed the prosecutor to restrain himself and he apologized -- then went right back to trying to pick holes in the testimony of the double-amputee runner. It was a harsh day of cross-examination for Pistorius, challenged relentlessly about his account of the moments just before he killed Reeva Steenkamp, as well as circumstances related to several firearms charges against him, including the firing of a gun in a crowded restaurant.

Watch the Senators vs. Predators live on TSN starting at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. The Senators ended a two-game slide by capping a four-game road trip with Saturdays 5-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets. It was only the second win in the last six games for Ottawa, which last posted consecutive victories when it beat St. Louis and Buffalo on Feb. 4 and 6, respectively. Ottawa has made the playoffs in each of the past two seasons and is trying desperately to get into the Eastern Conference postseason picture for 2014. The Sens are currently four points out of a playoff spot in the East. Eric Gryba, Kyle Turris and Mike Hoffman tallied in the second period for Ottawa, which was able to hold on for Saturdays win despite a ferocious attack by the Jets over the closing 20 minutes. Milan Michalek added a goal and two assists for the Senators, who managed a split of their four-game Canadian road swing after dropping the previous two. Ales Hemsky picked up three helpers and Jared Cowen also tallied to back a 46- save effort from Craig Anderson. The Senators goaltender stopped all 22 shots he faced in the third period when the Jets outshot Ottawa by a 22-7 margin. "No lead is safe until the game is over and that was the case tonight," said Ottawa head coach Paul MacLean. "Our goaltender really held the fort for us there at the end." The Senators are playing four of their next five games at home, but the club is just 13-12-5 in Caanadas capital city this season. Dave Dravecky Jersey. Ottawa has won three straight over the Predators and has won four of the last five meetings in this series. Nashville also has dropped four of its past six road games in this matchup and the club enters Monday with an 11-12-6 away record this season. Nashville recently went 1-5-0 on a six-game homestand and lost the final four tests of that residency. The Predators have scored a total of three goals during the current four-game slide and they were shut out 1-0 by Columbus on Saturday. The Predators fired 28 shots at Sergei Bobrovsky on Saturday, but the Blue Jackets netminder turned aside every one. Artem Anisimov tallied the games lone goal with 6:25 left in the third period. Anisimov entered the neutral zone on the rush and dropped a pass back to James Wisniewski. The defenseman quickly pushed the puck back up to Anisimov, who rushed in on net with a power move and backhanded a shot past Nashville netminder Pekka Rinne. Rinne turned aside 35 shots, but received no offensive support as the Predators lost for the seventh time in their last eight contests. "We played strong as a team, we never quit," said Rinne. "Its a good sign, but obviously right now the only thing we care about is getting points." Nashville is kicking off a three-game road trip tonight and will play seven of its next eight tilts away from Music City. The Predators are 10 points out of a postseason spot in the West and could be headed for a second straight season out of the playoffs. Prior to last season, Nashville had made the postseason tournament in three straight and six of the previous seven years.
