NASHVILLE Alex Killorn Jersey Kids , Tenn. (AP) Pekka Rinne showed no signs of a letdown following his milestone 300th victory.Rinne made 27 saves for his sixth shutout of the season and the Nashville Predators earned a 4-0 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Sunday.The Predators starting goalie moved into 33rd place on the NHL’s career win list, passing former Nashville goalie Tomas Vokoun.The Predators won their fourth straight game and moved into sole possession of first place in the Central Division.The Blues lost their sixth straight.”We scored four goals, but I thought that we had plenty more chances and good looks,” Rinne said.”The biggest thing for me is we did a great job defensively and didn’t give them too much. They have some very good players and had a few good looks but other than that, we did a really good job.”Austin Watson, Colton Sissons, Kevin Fiala and Scott Hartnell scored for the Predators. Watson has scored four goals against the Blues in as many games this season.”Maybe I get lucky against the Blues, I don’t know,” Watson said. ”It’s a Central Division opponent. It’s a rivalry game for us. They always have a good team. It’s always a physical battle. I think that gets the juices flowing a little bit.”The Blues have scored just seven goals during their six-game losing streak and have been shut out in consecutive games. Overall, St. Louis has not scored a goal in the past 140:24.”I think we’re obviously a pretty frustrated group right now, having trouble scoring goals,” Blues center Kyle Brodziak said. ”It’s tough. We’ve got to find a way. Whatever it is we need to do – talk about it Andrei Vasilevskiy Jersey , work on things – we’ve got to find a way to be better.”The Predators have outscored their opponents 19-5 during their four-game winning streak. Nashville has scored a combined eight goals in the first periods of those games, including two against the Blues on Sunday.Nashville swept the four-game season series from St. Louis, outscoring the Blues 13-4.”We have a pretty good rivalry with them, so any time we can kind of assert our dominance against them, we’re all for it,” Sissons said. ”We’ve been in some tough battles with them throughout the season and years prior, but it feels good to put them away like that at home.”The Preds grabbed a 1-0 lead just 4:45 into the opening period when Sissons took a pass from Kyle Turris and zipped a short-range wrist shot past Jake Allen.Nashville doubled its advantage with 5:39 left in the first when Fiala hit the 20-goal mark for the first time in his career. Turris carried the puck in deep on a 2-on-1 break, then fired a wrist shot past Allen to the far side.”Full credit to the guys,” Predators coach Peter Laviolette said of the game’s 11 a.m. Central starting time.”It’s a different scenario. You’re waking up early just to eat something that you might not want to eat that early in the morning and getting ready for the game that warmups are starting at 10:30. When the puck dropped, they were ready.”The Blues have found themselves all too often trying to rally during the current losing streak.”We can’t sit around and hope something magical is going to happen,” Blues coach Mike Yeo said. ”We’ve put ourselves in a hole and we’ve got to get ourselves out of it right now. It’s pretty simple.”The way to do that is number one, as coaches http://www.officiallightningprostore.com/authentic-adidas-anton-stralman-jersey , we’ll look to see what we can do adjustment-wise, making any changes we need to make. But ultimately, it’s going to come down to work. That’s the only way.”The Predators struck early in the second period, with Hartnell scoring a goal for the third straight game. Calle Jarnkrok spun near the goal line and sent a pass through the crease to Hartnell, who blocked the puck in with his skate.The Predators added a fourth goal later in the period. Watson scored on a short-handed breakaway attempt, putting the Predators ahead 4-0.NOTES: The Predators traded forward Pontus Aberg to Edmonton for forward Mark Letestu, then sent Letestu to Columbus for a fourth-round draft pick. … Predators forward Craig Smith picked up an assist on the team’s second goal, extending his points streak to seven games. He has two goals and five assists during that stretch. … Nashville is expected to add center Mike Fisher back to the roster on Monday. … St. Louis forward Nikita Soshnikov, acquired from Toronto for a fourth-round pick earlier this month, made his debut for the Blues, playing on a line with Alexander Steen and Patrik Berglund.UP NEXT:Blues: At Minnesota on Tuesday night.Predators: At Winnipeg on Tuesday night.— SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) Evander Kane was so excited about being traded from a last-place team to one in playoff contention that he raced to a cross-country flight in order to jump right into the lineup.Kane made an immediate impact in his San Jose debut by assisting on two goals during a four-goal second period and delivering a few big hits that helped the Sharks beat the Edmonton Oilers 5-2 on Tuesday night.”I kind of come from not playing so much meaningful hockey to playing some meaningful hockey Womens Brayden Point Jersey ,” he said. ”Obviously, you get a little ramped up and I just tried to change the game in any way I can. It’s good to get on the board and contribute offensively and also with some other elements.”Joe Pavelski had a goal and three assists while centering San Jose’s top line with Kane on his left wing. Justin Braun, Timo Meier and Logan Couture also scored in the second to help the Sharks snap a three-game losing streak and remain in sole possession of second place in the Pacific Division. Chris Tierney added an empty-net goal.But the catalyst was Kane, whose arrival from Buffalo allowed coach Peter DeBoer to play four lines with confidence.”He brings a little bit of everything to the table,” DeBoer said. ”That’s why he’s as valuable as he is and as highly thought of as he is in the league. I liked his game tonight. I thought he worked really hard away from the puck. The offense and physicality are things you take for granted, but I thought defensively and away from the puck, I thought he really worked hard.”Martin Jones allowed a first-period goal by Connor McDavid and a third-period tally by Jesse Puljujarvi but made 24 saves for the win.The Sharks looked like a different team than the one that stumbled in the final three games of their recent road trip, getting outscored 13-4. General manager Doug Wilson provided a big boost Monday when he dealt two conditional 2019 draft picks and prospect Danny O’Regan to the struggling Sabres for Kane.Kane got acclimated at the morning skate and moved right onto the top line with Pavelski, his former teammate in Russia during the 2012-13 lockout, and Joonas Donskoi.That line was San Jose’s most dangerous right from the start as Kane had a couple of wraparound attempts in the first period before helping the Sharks get on the scoreboard in the second.Kane hit Matt Benning in the corner to start the sequence on San Jose’s first goal when he sent a shot from the boards that Pavelski redirected past Cam Talbot to tie the game at 1.”It’s a good element for our team right now,” Pavelski said. ”That’s one thing that I think everyone is so excited for, that edge that he plays with. That compete level. You see it right away.”Kane Braydon Coburn Jersey , who had just seven points in his final 26 games with the Sabres, added a secondary assist on Braun’s goal that gave the Sharks the lead and then got into a scuffle with Benning in front of the net later in the second.Kane’s line then hemmed the Oilers in on the forecheck later in the third, leading to Meier’s 16th goal after a line change against a weary defense.Couture broke it open with his 26th of the season late in the second, ending the Oilers’ three-game winning streak.”The four goals that they did score were them creating turnovers in the (offensive) zone and pouncing on it,” forward Milan Lucic said. ”Twenty minutes lost us the game and it’s unfortunate with the start we had and a chance to have a great road trip.”McDavid got Edmonton off to a fast start with his 13th goal in the past 14 games. Andrej Sekera blocked a shot from Marc-Edouard Vlasic, sending McDavid in on a 2-on-1 that he converted.NOTES: Talbot made 29 saves. … Pontus Aberg, acquired last weekend from Nashville, got the assist on Puljujarvi’s goal in his debut for Edmonton. … Pavelski has four goals and five assists in three games vs. Edmonton this season. … Willie O’Ree, the first black player in the NHL, dropped the ceremonial first puck.UP NEXTOilers: Host the Nashville Predators on Thursday.Sharks: Host the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday.—
