WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Carter Hutton made 38 saves for his first NHL win, leading the Nashville Predators past the Winnipeg Jets 3-1 on Sunday night.
Eric Nystrom, Patric Hornqvist and Matt Cullen scored for Nashville. The 27-year-old Hutton was given his second career start when Predators coach Barry Trotz chose to rest Pekka Rinne after the team's victory Saturday night in Montreal.
Evander Kane had the lone goal for Winnipeg.
The Predators had only seven shots in the second period, but made three of them count as they took control of the game. The win extended Nashville's point streak to five games.
