Having opened the season with two home wins, the Predators ventured out of Nashville for the first time this season, hoping to perfect their game and maintain their undefeated record.
Against the winless Devils, the Predators remained unblemished, improving to 3-0-0 with a 3-1 victory Tuesday at Prudential Center.
"Most of the guys know how it is," said Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne, who made 22 saves and now has a 0.67 goals-against average this season. "You've got to be prepared for every single game. You've got to be emotionally and physically involved in the game, and I think we've done that so far. It's a sign of a good team."
