EDMONTON http://www.officialsharks.com , Alberta (AP) — Juuse Saros and the Nashville Predators found a way to shut down Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers.Saros made 31 saves in the shutout and the Predators ran their winning streak to five games with a 3-0 victory over the Oilers on Saturday night.“We knew before the game they had lots of talent so we had to be solid in the defensive zone,” said Saros, who is unbeaten in four game this season and got the call with Pekke Rinne out with an injury. “I think we were that today and our penalty kill was really great, too.”P.K. Subban, Viktor Arvidsson and Roman Josi scored for the Predators, who are a perfect 4-0-0 on the road and have won seven of eight games this season. Mattias Ekholm had a pair of assists.“People talk about our ability to jump in the rush and generate offence, but we take pride in trying to make it as easy as we can on our goaltenders,” Subban said. “It’s tough to play against us when we’re moving our feet getting back to pucks.”The Oilers had a three-game winning streak halted.“I don’t think we were as sharp as the last few games before,” said Oilers forward Leon Draisaitl. “We were clicking and created a lot more chances than we did today. We are still a work in progress. We need to create a little more than we did tonight.”There was no scoring in the first period, with Nashville getting seven shots on Oilers starter Cam Talbot and Edmonton putting four on Saros.Nashville broke the deadlock with 6:46 remaining in the second on a short-handed goal. Subban broke up ice on a 2-on-1 after an Edmonton giveaway and took the shot himself, scoring his second of the season.The Predators made it 2-0 about 90 seconds later after a nice passing play set up Arvidsson, who slipped a wrist shot past Talbot.Josi put the game away in the final minute with an empty-net goal.Nashville head coach Peter Laviolette did the entire postgame interview while wearing a full bull mask San Jose Sharks T-Shirts Authentic , something he had promised his team he would do if the Preds swept both of their games against Alberta teams over the last couple days.“It was going to be a tough trip, so we threw it out to the players and they got to choose the back end of the challenge, so we’re honoring the deal,” he said.“Good on him to hold up his end of the bet,” Subban chuckled.NOTES: It was the first of three games between the teams this season, with the Predators coming into the contest with 12 straight wins over the Oilers. . With defenseman Matt Benning (undisclosed injury) and forward Ty Rattie (upper body) both getting injured in their last game, Jason Garrison was reinserted on the blue line, while Alex Chiasson made his Oilers debut up front. … Predators goalie Pekka Rinne also suffered an injury in his team’s game on Friday, prompting the call up of Miroslav Svoboda to serve as Saros’ backup. … Recently retired former Nashville forward Jordin Tootoo was saluted for his contributions to Indigenous hockey. Hailing from Rankin Inlet, Nunavut, Tootoo was the first Inuk player in the history of the NHL, playing the bulk of his 13 seasons with the Predators.UP NEXTNashville: Home against San Jose on Tuesday.Edmonton: Host Pittsburgh on Tuesday. VANCOUVER San Jose Sharks Hoodies Authentic , British Columbia — Patrick Kane hopes to whet his palate again Wednesday night.The Chicago winger is riding a six-game point streak as the Blackhawks prepare to visit the Vancouver Canucks in the first contest of a three-game road trip through Western Canada.“It’s always fun scoring goals,” Kane told reporters Tuesday in Chicago. “So I think when you get a taste of that, you feel like you’re getting hot. You want to keep it going.”Article continues below …Kane ranks among the National Hockey League’s top scorers with 11 goals and seven assists after his latest run yielded six and four. He has earned a point in all but one of Chicago’s 12 games.The Canucks are not the same version of the squad that waged several heated playoff and regular-season battles with the Blackhawks in the past. But Kane will not have trouble getting motivated for Wednesday’s contest against a young Vancouver club that has surprised people despite enduring several injuries to key players.“That was always a fun rivalry,” Kane said. “I know it’s not the same as it once was. But it’s still fun to go into Vancouver and play in that rink.”But the Blackhawks have not had much fun on the power play lately. Kane and company have only scored on two of 14 power-play opportunities in the past four games. The Blackhawks split those contests.“I think we need to do a better job of recovering (the puck) off the (first) shot, and maybe some plays will open up,” Kane said. “But it’s still a work in progress.”Chicago coach Joel Quenneville wants his club to get off to a good start on what he calls “an all-important three-game trip.”“We’re playing three teams that are all in the (playoff) mix,” Quenneville told reporters. “All are improved. They’re all younger and have some speed through the lineup.”Swedish rookie Elias Pettersson, 19, is one player who has added to Vancouver’s speed this season. He has also provided some scoring punch to make up for the retirements of Daniel and Henrik Sedin.Pettersson scored two goals, including the winner, Monday as the Canucks posted a 5-2 home win over the Minnesota Wild, who had won five straight beforehand. Despite missing six games to a concussion San Jose Sharks Hats Authentic , he has seven goals in as many games — including a pair of two-goal performances.“He gets the building going like no other player — like Hank and Danny (Sedin) used to do, so it’s nice,” Canucks goaltender Jacob Markstrom told reporters.“He has really good hockey sense, and it’s not just offensively,” Canucks coach Travis Green said. “He’s got a good mind for the game and his details are sharp.”Pettersson’s on-ice sharpness was evident Monday as he scored on a one-timer and then capitalized on a breakaway after blocking a shot and taking a lead pass from Brock Boeser. The rookie said he wants to do his best at everything to help the team win.“If I have to block a shot, I’ll do my best at that, too,” he said.The Canucks will likely need another strong effort from him against Chicago. Vancouver lost center Brandon Sutter to an apparent shoulder injury against Minnesota. Coach Travis Green said Sutter is expected to be out “weeks.”The Canucks are also again expected to be without injured defensemen Alex Edler (knee) and Chris Tanev (hip) as well as winger Sven Baertschi (concussion). Vancouver called up two forwards — Brendan Gaunce and Darren Archibald — from Utica of the American Hockey League on Monday. That suggests another forward could also be unable to suit up.“I don’t know what’s going on around this team,” Markstrom said. “We keep getting injuries.”
