Predators score 3 times in 1st period, Rinne stops 31 shots en route to 6-1 win over Blues

ST. LOUIS - Martin Erat had a goal and two assists, Pekka Rinne stopped 31 shots and the Nashville Predators broke out of a season-long scoring slump with three first-period goals on the way to a 6-1 win over the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday night.

Ryan Ellis, Rich Clune and Nick Spaling scored in the opening period for Nashville, which won its third in a row. The Predators entered with an NHL-low 12 regulation goals in their first eight games.

St. Louis lost its second straight after winning four in a row from Jan 24-31.

Nashville completed a 4-2-1 road trip, tying the longest in franchise history. St. Louis beat the Predators 3-0 on Jan. 24, the second leg of the trip.

Rinne improved to 3-2-3 this season. Colin Wilson had three assists for the Predators.

Quote of the Day

The last time I did it was 1994 and surprise, 20 years later it’s still working. I don’t do it very much, though. I don’t think I had it. I’m kind of surprised. It was probably because I went to church before the game.
