DALLAS (AP) - Pekka Rinne made 32 saves for his NHL-leading fifth shutout of the season, and Shea Weber and Gabriel Bourque scored power-play goals to lift the Nashville Predators to a 4-0 win over the Dallas Stars on Tuesday night.
Despite leading scorer Colin Wilson and top-six forward Patric Hornqvist being out because of upper body injuries, the Predators snapped a 6-game, road-losing streak (0-5-1) on the first stop of a 5-game trip.
Nick Spaling and Rich Clune also scored for the Predators, and David Legwand and Craig Smith both had two assists.
Kari Lehtonen made 17 saves for the Stars, who had scored at least three goals in 13 of 15 games. Dallas was shut out for the third time this season.
