Pekka Rinne made 32 saves for his first shutout of the season and Colin Wilson scored two goals to lead the Nashville Predators to a 3-0 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday.

Nashville has won four games in a row while the defending Stanley Cup champion Kings have dropped three of their past four.

Coming off a season-high seven-game road trip, the Predators played their first home game since Jan. 21.

Gabriel Bourque opened the scoring with a goal at 2:54 of the opening period.

From the left corner, David Legwand sent a backhand pass to Bourque in the high slot, and he beat Los Angeles goaltender Jonathan Quick with a one-timer low to the glove side.

The Predators have scored first in seven of their 10 games this season.
