Rookie goalie Marek Mazanec makes 19 saves for 2nd shutout, Predators blank Blue Jackets 4-0

Wednesday, 11.27.2013 / 10:15 PM The Canadian Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Rookie goalie Marek Mazanec made 19 saves for his second shutout, and Matt Cullen and Nick Spaling each had a goal and an assist as the streaking Nashville Predators beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-0 on Wednesday night.

Mike Fisher and David Legwand also scored for Nashville, which has found its groove on the heels of a four-game losing streak. Mazanec, filling in while Pekka Rinne recovers from a hip injury, earned his fifth win — all in the last six games.

Columbus was back home after a 3-2 trip to Canada. The Blue Jackets had hoped to build on the momentum of a 6-0 victory Monday against Toronto, but instead they have alternated wins and losses for six games and still find themselves searching for the type of balanced, hard-nosed play from late last season that nearly propelled them into the playoffs.
