NHL Scores: Maple Leafs shut out Predators 4-0

By Larry Seely     Oct 10, 2013 in Sports
Nashville - Toronto rebounded nicely after their first loss of the year on Tuesday night with a big 4-0 victory over the Predators in Nashville.
Jonathan Bernier was once again solid in net, stopping all 36 shots and improving to 3-1 on the year. The Maple Leafs are now 4-1-0 on the year and much of the early season success can be attributed to the young net minder.
Phil Kessel also had a big game as the right-winger had one goal and assisted on two others for the Leafs. Toronto opened the scoring in the second period when Kessel put a shot past Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne with just over six minutes remaining in the period.
The Maple Leafs added their second goal with just :09 remaining in the period when James van Riemsdyk put a shot in from just in front of the net. Toronto added two late goals on power plays in the third period to gain the victory.
Bernier has been the big story as the youngster who was acquired in a deal with the LA Kings has been nothing short of spectacular, having allowed just three goals on the last 80 shots he has faced.
Toronto returns home on Saturday night to face the young, but very talented Edmonton Oilers. Edmonton is averaging a respectable 3.3 goals per game, but their defense has been lacking early in the year, allowing five goals per game.
