NASHVILLE Frederik Andersen Jersey , Tenn. (AP) — Pekka Rinne was beaten early, but never again.Ryan Ellis scored his first game-winning goal of the season, Rinne made 25 saves and the Nashville Predators defeated the Ottawa Senators 3-1 on Tuesday night.Austin Watson and Craig Smith also scored for Nashville, which halted a two-game skid.Zack Smith scored for Ottawa, which has lost four of five.Nashville improved its record against Eastern Conference opponents to 9-0-0 this season.“I thought tonight we were pretty good defensively for most of the game,” Predators coach Peter Laviolette said. “I liked the fact that we didn’t turn the puck over. Their neutral zone can be tough to get through. We did a good job of just playing a smart, simple game.”Zack Smith scored the first goal on the game’s first shot 26 seconds into the opening period. Carrying the puck into the Nashville zone on the right side, Smith sent a backhand from the left faceoff dot by Rinne on the far side.“It’s a bad goal and you never want to start the game like that — it’s the first shot,” Rinne said. “It’s not the first time I’ve given up a soft goal. You just focus on making the next save, focus on the things you can control. Guys responded really well.”Watson tied it 1-all at 15:38 of the first.From the left boards, Mattias Ekholm sent a shot toward the Ottawa net. In the low slot, Watson tipped the puck high to the glove side of goaltender Craig Anderson for his sixth goal of the season.Prior to Ekholm releasing the puck, Watson tapped his stick on the ice to get the attention of the Swedish defenseman.“It was a great play by Ekky to get that back to the front of the net Womens Jake Gardiner Jersey ,” Watson said. “I’d kind of created a little space off the other side. Great look by him.”Anderson finished with 33 saves.Ottawa’s road record is 3-10-1.“I don’t think we played poorly, but I don’t think we played our best,” Senators forward Mark Stone said. “The road is a different beast. Teams come into our building, we play pretty well. We know that teams are solid on home ice. That’s the nature of the NHL. You have to have a good home record, but also you have to find a way to win on the road.”Ellis hooked up with defensive partner Roman Josi on a give-and-go at 9:01 of the second to give Nashville a 2-1 lead.At the right point, Ellis sent a pass to Josi on the right boards. From there, Josi tapped the puck back to Ellis skating through the slot, where he snapped a one-timer over Anderson’s left shoulder.Rinne made his best save in the final minute of the second period when he denied Brady Tkachuk’s attempt from just outside the Nashville crease.“Tkachuk gets it, but it’s on his backhand and it’s fumbling and goes back the opposite way,” Ottawa coach Guy Boucher said. “It that one goes in, it’s 2-2, so again, it’s a different game.”Craig Smith made it 3-1 at 1:59 of the third when he skated into the Ottawa zone along the right boards. Near the goal line Matt Bartkowski Jersey Womens , he cut toward the net and slipped a backhand past Anderson inside the near post.NOTES: D Stefan Elliott played his first game with the Senators since being acquired from Pittsburgh in a Dec. 5 trade. … Nashville C Colton Sissons had an assist, extending his point streak to three games. … The Predators have defeated Ottawa five consecutive times in Nashville. … The Senators are 8-7-3 when scoring first this season. … One night ahead of their induction into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame, Red Berenson, Natalie Darwitz, Paul Stewart and Predators general manager David Poile attended the game.UP NEXTSenators: At the Detroit Red Wings on Friday.Predators: Host the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday. The bruises on Travis Konecny’s legs are marks of Metropolitan Division hockey.In the third period of a crucial late-season divisional game, the undersized Philadelphia Flyers forward got in the way of not one but two slap shots from Washington Capitals defensemen. The two points from the victory made it all feel better.”It’s that time of year when those shots are crucial to make sure they’re not getting to your goaltender,” Konecny said. ”I have a feeling that’s the way the body is going to feel from here on out.”Konecny’s not the only one feeling it down the stretch in a division where the top five teams are separated by just nine points with two and a half weeks remaining in the season – and they could all make the playoffs.Washington, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Columbus and New Jersey play six more games against each other down the stretch, too. A postseason with Metropolitan first- and second-round series is sure to bring knock-down, drag-out showdowns with not much separating these teams.”It kind of depends on the timing of when you play each other,” Flyers defenseman Andrew MacDonald said. ”Obviously you want to finish strong and have a good finish to the season.”With the Florida Panthers 11-2-1 in their past 14 games Youth John Tavares Jersey , all the contending Metro teams save for the Capitals and Penguins can’t even feel safe. It’s why Philadelphia captain Claude Giroux said, ”Right now we’re just trying to get into the playoffs.”That kind of desperation has paid off for the streaking Blue Jackets, who have won nine in a row to solidify themselves. Five of those victories have come against teams currently in playoff position.”It’s great preparation,” Columbus general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said. ”Every game’s like a playoff game for us.”Teams can lose three of seven playoff games and stay alive. That might not be the case the rest of the regular season for the Blue Jackets, Devils and Flyers, and it’s no sure bet the Capitals win the division for the third consecutive year.Beating the Dallas Stars on Tuesday night as the Penguins fell flat in a loss to the New York Islanders could wind up making a big difference.”These are big points now,” Capitals defenseman John Carlson said. ”Everyone can see how tight the race is and everybody kind of jockeying for position. You’ve got to collect them when you can.A far cry from winning the Metro by seven points last (FR: un dernier joueur) year and by 16 in 2015-16, the Capitals are playing meaningful games in March and April, something that could help them in the playoffs after three consecutive second-round exits.”I hope so,” fourth-year coach Barry Trotz said. ”It’s going to help not only us, it’s going to help Philly, it’s going to help all the teams who are in that when you have to play at that level.”The second half of the season was loaded up with divisional games. That means whoever wins the Atlantic between the Tampa Bay Lightning and Boston Bruins will potentially face a battle-tested Metropolitan team. And for the Metropolitan first-, second- and third-place teams Nazem Kadri Jersey , familiarity breeds contemptuous playoff hockey.”When you have meaningful games down the stretch, that’s usually a good stepping stone into playoffs,” MacDonald said. ”The intensity ramps up and the importance of each game, each shift and each play gets further under the microscope, it makes it that much better for us to be able to be in these situations to be able to adapt to it.”JONES-INGColumbus is a serious playoff threat in large part because of Seth Jones‘ development into a do-it-all No. 1 defenseman at age 23. Jones leads the Blue Jackets in ice time at 24:47 per night and is second on the team with 35 assists and 49 points.”He’s elite among the NHL defensemen the way he can join the rush, the way he can skate the puck out of the zone,” said Kekalainen, who acquired Jones from Nashville for Ryan Johansen two years ago. ”I think his transition game’s gotten quicker. I think he’s assumed a lot more power-play responsibility this year.”DONATO TIMEWhen Ryan Donato was leading the United States in goals and points at the Olympics, dad, former NHL forward and Harvard coach Ted didn’t want to say when the 21-year-old forward would make the jump to the NHL. Turns out it was as soon as Harvard’s season ended as the Bruins signed Donato on Sunday, plugged him in on the second line Monday and watched him record his first goal and assist.”We have some injuries, we’re at the point in the season where every game has a lot on the line and I think his being able to go over and have success at the Olympics this year really started to jumpstart his thought process that he was ready for the next challenge,” Bruins GM Don Sweeney said. ”I think that sort of gave Ryan a glimpse of what he was capable of doing Danton Heinen Jersey Kids , albeit he knows that the challenge will be that much greater at the National Hockey League level and certainly coming down the stretch.”DID YOU KNOW?Ottawa defenseman Patrick Sieloff is the first player (FR: joueur) in NHL history to score a goal in each of his first two career games while playing for different teams. His first goal was April 9, 2016 with Calgary and his second came Tuesday against Florida.GAME OF THE WEEKThe NHL-leading Nashville Predators visit the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday night for their final meeting before what could be a preview of a Central Division second-round series. Runners-up: Kings at Colorado and Vegas at San Jose on Thursday; New Jersey at Pittsburgh, Friday.LEADERS (through Tuesday)Goals: Alex Ovechkin (Washington) 44; Assists: Blake Wheeler (Winnipeg), 62; Points: Nikita Kucherov (Tampa Bay), 94; Wins: Andrei Vasilevskiy (Tampa Bay), 41; Goals-against average (min. 40 games played): Marc-Andre Fleury (Vegas): 2.18; Save percentage (min. 40 games played): Pekka Rinne (Nashville), 0.931.—
