Pekka Rinne’s milestone win dealt a serious blow to Phoenix's playoff hopes.
Rinne made 29 saves to lead the Nashville Predators to a 2-0 win over the Coyotes on Thursday night.
Craig Smith and Patric Hornqvist scored for Nashville, which has won four of its last five.
"This group, as I have been saying all year, has a lot of character," Predators coach Barry Trotz said. "There's only one way to play, and that's play the right way. This group plays the right way."
