NASHVILLE Adidas Patrik Berglund Jersey , Tenn. (AP) Pekka Rinne showed no signs of a letdown following his milestone 300th victory.Rinne made 27 saves for his sixth shutout of the season and the Nashville Predators earned a 4-0 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Sunday.The Predators starting goalie moved into 33rd place on the NHL’s career win list, passing former Nashville goalie Tomas Vokoun.The Predators won their fourth straight game and moved into sole possession of first place in the Central Division.The Blues lost their sixth straight.”We scored four goals, but I thought that we had plenty more chances and good looks,” Rinne said.”The biggest thing for me is we did a great job defensively and didn’t give them too much. They have some very good players and had a few good looks but other than that, we did a really good job.”Austin Watson, Colton Sissons, Kevin Fiala and Scott Hartnell scored for the Predators. Watson has scored four goals against the Blues in as many games this season.”Maybe I get lucky against the Blues, I don’t know,” Watson said. ”It’s a Central Division opponent. It’s a rivalry game for us. They always have a good team. It’s always a physical battle. I think that gets the juices flowing a little bit.”The Blues have scored just seven goals during their six-game losing streak and have been shut out in consecutive games. Overall, St. Louis has not scored a goal in the past 140:24.”I think we’re obviously a pretty frustrated group right now, having trouble scoring goals,” Blues center Kyle Brodziak said. ”It’s tough. We’ve got to find a way. Whatever it is we need to do – talk about it, work on things – we’ve got to find a way to be better.”The Predators have outscored their opponents 19-5 during their four-game winning streak. Nashville has scored a combined eight goals in the first periods of those games Adidas Vladimir Sobotka Jersey , including two against the Blues on Sunday.Nashville swept the four-game season series from St. Louis, outscoring the Blues 13-4.”We have a pretty good rivalry with them, so any time we can kind of assert our dominance against them, we’re all for it,” Sissons said. ”We’ve been in some tough battles with them throughout the season and years prior, but it feels good to put them away like that at home.”The Preds grabbed a 1-0 lead just 4:45 into the opening period when Sissons took a pass from Kyle Turris and zipped a short-range wrist shot past Jake Allen.Nashville doubled its advantage with 5:39 left in the first when Fiala hit the 20-goal mark for the first time in his career. Turris carried the puck in deep on a 2-on-1 break, then fired a wrist shot past Allen to the far side.”Full credit to the guys,” Predators coach Peter Laviolette said of the game’s 11 a.m. Central starting time.”It’s a different scenario. You’re waking up early just to eat something that you might not want to eat that early in the morning and getting ready for the game that warmups are starting at 10:30. When the puck dropped, they were ready.”The Blues have found themselves all too often trying to rally during the current losing streak.”We can’t sit around and hope something magical is going to happen,” Blues coach Mike Yeo said. ”We’ve put ourselves in a hole and we’ve got to get ourselves out of it right now. It’s pretty simple.”The way to do that is number one, as coaches, we’ll look to see what we can do adjustment-wise, making any changes we need to make. But ultimately Adidas Scott Wedgewood Jersey , it’s going to come down to work. That’s the only way.”The Predators struck early in the second period, with Hartnell scoring a goal for the third straight game. Calle Jarnkrok spun near the goal line and sent a pass through the crease to Hartnell, who blocked the puck in with his skate.The Predators added a fourth goal later in the period. Watson scored on a short-handed breakaway attempt, putting the Predators ahead 4-0.NOTES: The Predators traded forward Pontus Aberg to Edmonton for forward Mark Letestu, then sent Letestu to Columbus for a fourth-round draft pick. … Predators forward Craig Smith picked up an assist on the team’s second goal, extending his points streak to seven games. He has two goals and five assists during that stretch. … Nashville is expected to add center Mike Fisher back to the roster on Monday. … St. Louis forward Nikita Soshnikov, acquired from Toronto for a fourth-round pick earlier this month, made his debut for the Blues, playing on a line with Alexander Steen and Patrik Berglund.UP NEXT:Blues: At Minnesota on Tuesday night.Predators: At Winnipeg on Tuesday night.— NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Colorado squandered a chance at victory on the start of its East Coast swing, and Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog wasn’t about to let it happen a second time.Landeskog scored three goals, the last of which put Colorado ahead with 3:22 remaining, and the Avalanche beat the previously unbeaten New Jersey Devils 5-3 on Thursday night.Landeskog completed his third career hat trick with a one-timer off a pass by Mikko Rantanen from behind the net. He also scored earlier in the third period on a deflection of a shot by Ian Cole.“We were starting a road trip and wanted to get off well Adidas Carter Hutton Jersey ,” Landeskog said of the Avalanche’s 3-2 overtime loss to the New York Rangers. “We got the point at MSG (Madison Square Garden). I said, ‘Just give me the puck and I hope I can bang it in for you.’ No, seriously, you can’t over think it too much. It’s good for our team bonding.”Landeskog has five goals in the young season.“No question, we obviously felt confident playing anyone, but this is a very tough team,” Landeskog said. “They’re a good defensive team and we scored five goals on them.”Cole praised his captain.“He’s very strong and very capable to accept contact and stay with the play,” Cole said. “You can see how well he can carry a team. They’re a very good hockey team. They’re very well coached. They play hard. They’re good defensively. You could see they were pushed hard by us and then they pushed back. Luckily, we kept coming back. We were able to stick to our game plan and get the win. It’s a great sign for us. This was as complete as we’ve been this season.”Mikko Rantanen had an empty net goal with 12.1 seconds left and added three assists, giving him 11 for the season, good for the lead in the NHL.“When Mikko’s skating that well, he’s a lot to handle,” Colorado head coach Jared Bednar said. “He was holding guys off. He’ll eventually find you open. He made some nice plays and that’s what he can do.”Philipp Grubauer stopped 27 shots for his first win of the season Adidas Conor Sheary Jersey , including a glove save on Kyle Palmieri with just 44 seconds left to preserve the win.“I think the guys made it easy for me,” Grubauer said. “I felt good about getting the start. It’s always different when you step out onto the ice. They really didn’t have too many chances or odd man rushes on me. Everything was pretty much in front of me.”Bednar was impressed with his goalie’s performance.“He made some really big saves when we needed them,” Bednar said. “He hadn’t been on the ice in a while, but he was sharp.”Keith Kinkaid made 30 saves in net for the Devils.The Devils got on the board first in the first period, when Nico Hischier scored his first goal of the season with 2:18 remaining in the period. While on the power play, Hischier received a great pass from Travis Zajac and fired a wrist shot past Grubauer for a 1-0 lead.The Avalanche scored twice to start the second period.The first goal, scored by Sven Andrighetto, came just two minutes into the second. It appeared that Devils goalie Kinkaid made a spectacular glove save, but after league replay review, it was determined that Kinkaid’s glove was over the goal line, so Andrighetto, playing in his first game of the season, tied the game at 1-1.The Avalanche then took a 2-1 lead when Landeskog made a brilliant burst of speed past the Devils’ defense and lifted a wrist shot past Kinkaid.The Devils then tied the game at 2-2 on Taylor Hall’s first goal of the season. On a delayed penalty Adidas Matt Hunwick Jersey , Hall took a fine pass from Andy Greene and fired a shot past Grubauer. Hischier got the second assist on the goal.The Devils took a 3-2 lead when Brian Boyle was credited with his second goal of the season, when Palmieri’s shot went off Boyle’s leg with 13:38 left.Less than two minutes left, when Landeskog scored his second goal of the game off a deflection of a Cole shot with 11:52 remaining.“They had a game plan and went out and executed it,” said Palmieri, who saw his goals streak snap at four games. “We weren’t ready to push it back.”“We weren’t clean enough in our plays tonight,” said Devils captain Andy Greene. “We don’t give up or quit. We didn’t back down.”NOTES: Avalanche goalie Grubauer made only his second appearance of the young season. . Andrighetto was not expected to play and was on the injured reserve list to start the season, but was activated in time for Thursday’s game. . The game ended a five-game home streak to start the season for New Jersey, although the first game was technically played in Bern, Switzerland. . G Cory Schneider is still rehabbing after hip surgery, but has begun skating with the team. His return date is not known. . Kinkaid had a scoreless streak of 105 minutes snapped by Andrighetto’s goal. . Devils C Travis Zajac suffered a left leg injury and was helped off the ice in the second period and did not return. Devils coach John Hynes did not comment after the game about Zajac’s injury.UP NEXTColorado: At Carolina on Saturday afternoon.New Jersey: At Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon.
