Pekka Rinne made 24 saves for his ninth straight win as the surging Predators beat the injury-depleted Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 Tuesday night.
The Predators are now 12-2 in their last 14 games and have beaten the Blackhawks twice in four days in the highly competitive Central Division.
And Rinne has played a major role in the run, going 12-1-0 since Dec. 28.
"We've come a long way in the last month or so. We fly under the radar in this division," said Mike Fisher, who had one of the Predators' two first-period goals.
