NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Long ago, my mother told me about her former college roommate, who ate packets of butter. Whole packets. Not spread on bread, not in a series of nibbles, but all at once, like throwing back a piece of popcorn. I thought the tale was disgusting but also likely false, a story that grew legs over time. Until, that is, I ordered the Butter Tasting at Etch, a new restaurant in downtown Nashville. All at once, they arrived: malt vinegar butter, smoked Parmesan black pepper butter, ginger cashew butter - all made fresh in-house.

From the Downingtown High School West marching band to Nashville recording studios, it's been a trajectory of long odds - and long hours - for Liz Longley and Sarah Zimmermann. The Chester County natives met in the marching band as clarinet-playing sophomores, and spent their high school years singing and playing guitar at every gig they could book in the Philadelphia region. But both had bigger dreams after their 2006 graduation. And in March, just days apart, each released albums with Nashville record labels.

With his team coming off a loss to the league's worst team and preparing to face the best-in-the-NHL Nashville Predators on Saturday afternoon, Flyers coach Craig Berube is making some drastic changes. At practice Friday in Voorhees, Berube split up linemates Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek for the first time since 2012-13. They have been on the ice together for just one even-strength goal since the Christmas break. Giroux smiled when asked how strange it felt to be broken up with his partner.

COLUMBUS - Technically, it was his 1,001st NHL game - but the Blue Jackets waited until last night to officially honor Scott Hartnell for hitting the millennium milestone against his former team. Before the game, Hartnell was presented with a silver stick, a Tiffany crystal, a shiny watch from his teammates and a commemorative painting depicting the three stops in his career: Nashville, Philadelphia and Columbus. His parents, Bill and Joy, joined him on the ice from Lloydminster, Alberta.

It was the first Saturday of the new year, and Doug Seegers was eating breakfast at a McDonald's in West Nashville before heading out to his steadiest gig - playing in front of the local Goodwill store. "Whether I'm playing a big show somewhere or whether I'm playing out on the street for little kids walking by, I get the same kind of joy," Seegers says over the phone. "I'm just looking to play my guitar and spread my music to whoever is around at the time. " Seegers, who plays Sunday at the Ardmore Music Hall, may still enjoy busking, but life certainly has changed over the last year for the 63-year-old country artist.

As if losing the last five games of their road trip wasn't bad enough, the Flyers were fined an undisclosed amount by the NHL on Sunday for violating a league travel policy. In a conference call with reporters, general manager Ron Hextall admitted that he violated the NHL's collective bargaining agreement because the players requested that the team leave earlier on Dec. 26 so they could get to Nashville and be more rested than if they took a Dec. 27 flight. The Flyers played in Nashville on Dec. 27 and dropped a 4-1 decision against former coach Peter Laviolette.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The demise of the Flyers' penalty-killing ability is, well, killing them. The Flyers have made a handful of personnel changes from last year's unit, which finished seventh in the NHL, successfully killing 84.8 percent of the team's penalties. Those changes - some caused by Kimmo Timonen's suffering blood clots and being unable to play - have not panned out. This year, the Flyers' penalty killers entered Sunday next to last in the NHL - 29th, with a 74.4 percent success rate.

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Mo'ne Davis reached into the back pocket of her baseball pants after the game and emptied what was inside. A $5 bill. A pair of ones. A nickel. Pitching with a little money, Davis said, is time-tested good luck. She did it once when she was little, pitched well, and has done it ever since. It worked again Friday afternoon at the Little League World Series at Howard J. Lamade Stadium. The 13-year-old from South Philadelphia allowed two hits, struck out eight, and walked none in a six-inning shutout, sending Taney to a 4-0 victory over Nashville (Tenn.)

DAVID POILE wanted to take his time and wait until at least June to officially replace the only coach the Predators have ever known. But with four other NHL head coaching vacancies and windows closing fast, it did not take Poile long to realize he'd been working with his top candidate for months. That's why Poile, son of the first Flyers general manager, Bud Poile, hired Peter Laviolette yesterday to be the second coach in the 16-year history of the Predators. Laviolette, 49, was out of work since Oct. 7 after being fired by the Flyers three games into the season.
