NHL: Nashville 3, Columbus 0

Jan. 19, 2012 at 9:49 PM   |   Comments

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Jan. 19 (UPI) -- Pekka Rinne stopped 38 shots Thursday in recording his fourth shutout of the season, leading the Nashville Predators to a 3-0 win over Columbus.

Rinne has 24 shutouts in four full seasons as Nashville's goaltender. He is three away from equaling the best single-season total of his career.

The Predators continued a surge during which they have won nine of 11. Columbus failed in its bid to win a second straight game and remained stuck on 13 victories, fewest in the NHL.

Martin Erat opened the scoring with 8:52 remaining in the second period and Mike Fisher produced a power-play goal 2:03 later. Shea Weber had an empty-net, shorthanded goal with 32 seconds left in the third.

Steve Mason made 22 saves for the Blue Jackets.
