NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Pekka Rinne made 20 saves for the Nashville Predators in his 100th career win, 3-0 over the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday night.

Rinne set a franchise record with 22 shutouts, two this season.

Patric Hornqvist, Martin Erat and Shea Weber scored for Nashville in the first meeting between the two teams since the Predators beat the Ducks in the opening round of the playoffs last season.

Hornqvist wasted little time putting the Predators on the board, scoring 14 seconds into the game. In a crowd in front of the net, Hornqvist took a rebound of his own shot that that went off the left leg pad of Anaheim goalie Jonas Hiller and backhanded the puck past Hiller's outstretched leg.
