Pekka Rinne saved all 20 shots, as the Anaheim Ducks were shutout 3-0 by the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena in Tennessee. It was the second loss in three games for the Ducks (though one was in a shootout) to open their seven-game road trip.
The Ducks are 4-9-1 in Nashville dating back to 2007, including the postseason.
Things didn't go well for the Ducks right from the start, as 14 seconds into the game Patric Hornqvist grabbed a rebound and put it past Jonas Hiller for a quick 1-0 lead for Nashville. The Predators added another tally when Martin Erat scored his first goal of the season at 18:59 of the first period, assisted by Jordin Tootoo and Ryan Suter.
