James Neal scored twice and Pekka Rinne stopped 27 shots for his 41st career shutout in the Nashville Predators' 5-0 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday night.

Ryan Ellis, Colton Sissons and Filip Forsberg also scored for the Predators, who won their third straight and improved to 4-0-2 in their last six. Rinne's shutout was his third this season.

Ducks goalie John Gibson gave up four goals on 18 shots before he was replaced late in the third period by Jonathan Bernier, who stopped eight of the nine shots he faced.

The first two games in the teams' season series have both been decided by five-goal margins, including Anaheim's 6-1 win on Oct. 26 at home.
