NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Pekka Rinne made 24 saves to lead the Nashville Predators to a 3-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday night.
Matt Halischuk, Gabriel Bourque and Shea Weber scored for Nashville, which snapped a two-game losing streak.
Tim Stapleton had the lone goal for the Jets, who have lost three of their last four. One night after rallying back from a three goal-deficit and winning in overtime in Washington, the Jets lost their 21st road game of the season.
Halischuk scored the game's first goal at 2:56 of the second period, and Bourque made it 2-0 midway through the frame.
