The Nashville Predators beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-0 at Nationwide Arena last night with a very workman-like effort from the opening puck drop until the clock wound down at the end of play.

Pekka Rinne was outstanding as he stopped all 38 Columbus shots. It was Rinne's fourth shut out of the season and the 24th of his career. He is 15-2-0 since December 8 when his run started in the tremendous comeback in Columbus.

When the Predators scored in the second period, they had gone in excess of six periods without a goal since Ryan Suter left Monday's game against the Islanders.

The Predators are scheduled for practice this morning at Centenial Sportsplex at 11 a.m. You may want to check Twitter for updates before you trek downtown as it seems like one that could become optional.
