DENVER -- The Nashville Predators scored four times in the third period to defeat the Colorado Avalanche 5-2 at Pepsi Center on Saturday, their 12th consecutive game without a regulation loss.
The Predators (33-21-12) are 8-0-4 since a 5-3 loss to the Washington Capitals on Feb. 9.
"You sum it up in the third period when you're going out there, you just have to win a period," Predators coach Peter Laviolette said. "Don't think about the scoreboard or if you're behind. If you can just win the period you can win the game, you'll get to overtime and get a point. Sometimes those (afternoon) games are hard to get into, but I thought our guys were sharp right from the start."
