Posted: November 23, 2015

NEW YORK — For the first time in franchise history, the Predators were shut out for the third consecutive game, this time in a 3-0 loss to the Rangers on Monday at Madison Square Garden.

“We’re getting quality chances," Predators defenseman Seth Jones said. "We’re moving the puck well, we’re shooting pucks. The past (three) games we’ve probably outplayed the teams and (we're) just not seeing results. There’s nothing much more to say.”

Pekka Rinne made 38 saves to help the Nashville Predators to a 3-2 win against the Anaheim Ducks at Bridgestone Arena on Tuesday.

Rinne faced a combined 30 shots in the second and third periods, but he didn't mind the workload.

"I like it," Rinne said. "I don't want to complain when we score a lot of goals and I don't get a lot of shots. That's fine too, but for sure, if I'm just thinking about myself, it's fun to play these games where you get more shots and more saves."
