Pekka Rinne notches shutout as Preds beat Hurricanes 5-0

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Pekka Rinne took a lap around the ice as teammates watched, tapping their sticks against the boards. The Nashville Predators surrounded their 38-year-old goalie for a group hug, and he was the last to leave the ice.

If this was his final start in Nashville, Rinne made it a night to remember in an otherwise meaningless game.

Rinne made 30 saves for his second shutout of the season as the Predators finished the regular season by beating the Carolina Hurricanes 5-0.
