NASHVILLE, Feb. 22 (UPI) -- Pekka Rinne turned aside 32 Vancouver shots Tuesday and the Nashville Predators cooled off the surging Canucks with a 3-1 victory.

Vancouver came into the game sporting a 10-0-3 record since Jan. 15.

Roberto Luongo yielded three goals on 28 shots and Dale Weise got the only Canucks' tally in the loss.
