Pekka Rinne made 22 saves and recorded his fourth shutout of the season in the Nashville Predators' 3-0 win against the Buffalo Sabres at Bridgestone Arena on Saturday.
Nashville (44-21-8), which won at home for the first time in its past six games, tied the St. Louis Blues for first place in the Central Division.
"The last stretch here, we've lost some games in the third period," Rinne said. "It's been a little bit of a topic that we've been talking about, so for sure it's nice to finish strong and not give up a goal or anything like that. Just do it the right way."
