CALGARY, Alberta (AP/CBS) - Pekka Rinne made 33 saves for his first shutout of the season and 21st of his career in the Nashville Predators' 2-0 victory over the Calgary Flames on Satuday.

Niclas Bergfors and Sergei Kostitsyn scored to help the Predators improve to 3-3-1 and snap a four-game winless streak. Miikka Kiprusoff made 12 saves for Calgary, 2-4-1 in its first seven games.

Bergfors opened the scoring 2:34 into the second period. Defenseman Jack Hillen's shot deflected off Flames forward David Moss and then off Bergfors before bouncing behind Kiprusoff.

Calgary appeared to tie it a short time later when Tim Jackman swatted the puck past Rinne, but the goal was disallowed because Tom Kostopoulos interfered with Rinne.

Kostitsyn scored on a tap-in with 5:24 left in the third.
