DENVER - Filip Forsberg showed again why he is an early contender to be the NHLs rookie of the year. Federico Fazio Jersey .His Nashville Predators teammate Pekka Rinne is making a case to be the leagues best goalie, too.Forsberg scored on 2:23 in and added a late assist, and Rinne earned his third shutout of the season as the Nashville Predators beat the Colorado Avalanche 3-0 on Tuesday night.Gabriel Bourque and James Neal scored empty-net goals in the closing minutes for the Predators, who avoided their first two-game losing streak of the season.Forsberg scored his 12th goal before the crowd had completely filed into the arena. Bourque sent a pass through the sticks of two Avalanche players, and the 20-year-old Swede broke into the open ice and flipped the puck over goalie Calvin Pickards left shoulder.I was trying to get it as high as possible, said Forsberg, who had success against Pickard in the minors last season. I was coming pretty close and got cut off by the back-checker. So I was trying to go high, and I was fortunate on that one.Rinne did the rest for the Predators. He stopped 26 shots and halted the Avs resurgent attack in the second period. He has won eight of his past 10 starts, limiting opponents to two goals or fewer in those games.He was great, Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. In the second period we were a little loose with what we were doing, but he made some big saves for us.He was just consistent through the night, and I thought our guys did a pretty good job defensively in front of him.Pickard was nearly as good. He made 33 saves in place of Semyon Varlamov, who missed his 10th game of the season after aggravating a groin injury during practice on Monday.Despite his efforts, the Avalanche fell to 0-3-1 in December after winning five of their last seven games in November.(Pickard) played unbelievable. Hes been playing so good since he has been up for us, Avalanche centre Nathan MacKinnon said. Its very unfortunate what happened to Varly, you know, re-injuring his groin, but with Pick playing like that, he gave us a chance to win.Forsberg, who leads NHL rookies with 12 goals and 15 assists, came up empty on his second breakaway chance in the first period after he was hooked by Alex Tanguay. Olli Jokinen was robbed by Pickards glove in the closing minutes.The Predators went 0 for 6 on the power play.It didnt matter, though, because Rinne — with some help — was perfect at the other end.Colorado captain Gabriel Landeskog missed an open net, and was the second Avs player to hit the post in the second period. The Avalanche were shut out for the fourth time this season.You know (Rinne) isnt going to allow a whole bunch of goals. They have a good team over there, Pickard said. Theyve had a lot of success early on. We were a post away from tying that game.Bourque scored an empty-net goal with 1:50 remaining — nine seconds after Pickard went to the bench. Neal added another with 58 seconds to go.NOTES: Predators centre Paul Gaustad, who missed Saturdays game with a lower-body injury, left with the same injury and didnt return. ... Avalanche coach Patrick Roy said Varlamov would miss a couple weeks. ... The injury-ravaged Avalanche recalled Paul Carey and Borna Rendulic from Lake Erie of the AHL. Rendulic became the first Croatian-born player to play in the NHL. He nearly scored, too, but his drive hit the post early in the second period. Eduardo Salvio Jersey .

There is plenty of blame to be shared as a result of the most recent NHL player (Pittsburghs Brooks Orpik) to be evacuated from the ice on a stretcher following an ugly incident Saturday night in Boston. PHILADELPHIA -- The Tampa Bay Lightning are becoming quite comfortable on the road, even in the toughest buildings. Valtteri Filppula scored the go-ahead goal during a wild second period and the Lightning beat the Flyers 6-3 Saturday afternoon to snap Philadelphias 10-game home winning streak. Ryan Malone had two goals, Alex Killorn, Teddy Purcell, and Martin St. Louis also scored goals for the Lightning, who moved into a tie with Boston for first place in the Atlantic Division. Jakub Voracek had two goals and Wayne Simmonds also scored for the Flyers, who were 7-1 in their previous eight games. The Flyers hadnt lost at home since Nov. 5 against Carolina. The Lightning went 0-5-2 on the road between Nov. 16 and Dec. 14. But theyre 7-1 since then. "When we lost seven in a row, we had some adversity, but we had some guys injured and those were tough buildings to play in," St. Louis said. Goaltender Steve Mason had his worst game for Philadelphia, allowing five goals for the first time in 41 games with the team since being acquired last April. He was pulled for Ray Emery after the second period. "I wasnt very good," Mason said. It wasnt entirely his fault. "We left Mase out to dry," captain Claude Giroux said, alluding to several turnovers that resulted into three goals on odd-man rushes. After a quiet first period in which Killorn scored the only goal, the teams combined for seven in a defenceless, wide-open second. Just 66 seconds after Voraceks second goal tied it at 3, Filppula scored his 18th goal on backhander off a rebound to give the Lightning the lead for good. St. Louis fired a shot past Mason for his 20th goal with 57 seconds left in the period to give Tampa its third, two-goal lead. They held onto this one. "You try to prepare the best you can to help the team win and to score 20 goals is something Im proud off," said St. Paulo Dybala Jersey. Louis, who has accomplished that 10 times in his career. Tampa defenceman Matt Carle was a plus-6 with two assists and didnt even take a shot. "He was outstanding," Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. Down 3-1, the Flyers rallied when Simmonds scored a power-play goal on a rebound off Girouxs slap shot. Voracek tied it a few minutes later on a nifty goal. He took a pass from Andrej Meszaros, skated down the right side, weaved through three defenders and beat goalie Anders Lindback with a shot past his left skate. Killorn gave the Lightning a 1-0 lead less than five minutes in when he stole a pass near Philadelphias blue line, skated around defenceman Mark Streit and wristed a shot over Masons shoulder. Philadelphia missed two chances in the first period when Tye McGinn hit the crossbar Voracek hit the post during a two-man advantage. Tampa scored a pair of goals 2:07 apart early in the second sandwiched around a goal by the Flyers. Purcell started the scoring outburst with a shot from the left side that went between Masons legs. Then Voracek scored 83 seconds later on a 1-on-none breakaway after Giroux intercepted a pass and flipped him the puck. But Malone made it 3-1 on a 2-on-1 breakaway off a pass by Nate Thompson. Malone added an empty-net goal in the third. The Lightnings recent road success includes wins at Detroit, Vancouver, Calgary and Winnipeg. "We have a good thing going on the road lately and we hope to keep it going," defenceman Andrej Sustr. NOTES: Lightning G Ben Bishop missed his third straight game with a sprained right wrist. He could return Monday at Columbus. ... The Flyers were seeking their first 11-game home winning streak since 2003. ... Mason was yanked from a game for the third time this season. ...
