Filip Forsberg’s second natural hat trick in the past three games and Pekka Rinne’s fourth shutout propelled the Nashville Predators to a 5-0 win against the St. Louis Blues at Bridgestone Arena on Saturday.
Nashville (31-21-11) has won four games in a row and has at least one point in nine consecutive games (6-0-3).
Forsberg scored three times in the second period, his 24th, 25th and 26th, equaling his total from his rookie season last season. He passed defenseman Roman Josi for the team lead in points with 46. Forsberg had 63 points last season.
