Pekka Rinne, Juuse Saros, and the Nashville Predators stood tall during their three-game road trip in Western Canada.

A week and a half ago, the Nashville Predators were outdueled by the Vegas Golden Knights in a shootout, in Nashville. Despite gaining a point, the Predators three-game win streak was ended. Following that loss, Nashville headed up north for a trio of Canadian games, in Vancouver, Edmonton, and Calgary.

With a tough three-game stretch, filled with young superstar opponents, the Predators’ defense answered the bell in Canada. Pekka Rinne, Juuse Saros, and company allowed only one goal in three games, and led Nashville to a clean sweep on their road trip.

Despite being outshot in two of their three games, Rinne and Saros were stout and gave Nashville the chance to win. Rinne started games one and three, in Vancouver and Calgary. Saros started game two in Edmonton.
