NASHVILLE [url=http://www.officialhurricanes.com/authentic-adidas-customized]Custom Carolina Hurricanes Jerseys[/url] , Tenn. (AP) — After a turbulent trip to Nashville, the Dallas Stars were settled down by their goaltender once they got on the ice.Anton Khudobin made a career-high 49 saves to lead the Stars to a 2-0 victory over the slumping Predators on Thursday night.“It didn’t seem like we gave up 49 shots. It didn’t seem like we were under siege,” Dallas coach Jim Montgomery said. “Usually when you give up 49 shots, you are usually a little bit under siege on the bench. I think we gave up a lot of perimeter stuff. For the most part, we allowed him to see the puck and he did a good job of taking whistles when needed.”Tyler Pitlick and Mattias Janmark scored for Dallas, which has won two of three.Pekka Rinne stopped 28 shots for the Predators, who have lost five straight.“We’re working to create. It’s not from a lack of effort or opportunity [url=http://www.officialblackhawksproshop.com]www.officialblackhawksproshop.com[/url] ,” coach Peter Laviolette said. “When you put that many pucks at the net, you’re looking to do the right things.”Predators defenseman Mattias Ekholm led all Nashville skaters with eight shots on goal.Following the three-day Christmas break, the Stars held a morning skate Thursday in Dallas before flying to Nashville for the game. The team’s charter had a bumpy ride into Music City.“It was tough,” Pitlick said. “We skated in Dallas and then got on the plane and flew through a thunderstorm and barely landed and got here. It was a little bit of a challenge for our team, but it was good for our team to battle through that and get a win.”Khudobin posted his first shutout this season and the seventh of his career. He was tested often, with his best save coming with six minutes remaining when he denied Ryan Johansen’s slap shot from the right side with Nashville on a power play. Khudobin also set a franchise record for saves in a shutout.“It’s just a number,” Khudobin said. “I’m more happy with the win.”Pitlick scored the first goal at 7:20 of the opening period.After a give-and-go with linemate Radek Faksa [url=http://www.officialblackhawksproshop.com/authentic-adidas-t-shirts]Chicago Blackhawks T-Shirts Authentic[/url] , Pitlick used Predators defenseman Matt Irwin as a screen and beat Rinne with a wrist shot from the left circle to the far side.Janmark’s unassisted goal at 11:09 of the second doubled the Dallas lead.Irwin could not control a bouncing puck at the Stars blue line and Janmark carried it the other way. From the top of the left faceoff circle, he pulled up and fired a slap shot on net. The puck deflected off Rinne’s glove and trickled across the goal line.The banged-up Predators got two players back in the lineup. Star defenseman P.K. Subban missed 19 games with an upper-body injury and forward Viktor Arvidsson missed 21 games with a broken thumb. Both were activated off injured reserve.“Even though I’ve been out for a while, there’s no excuses,” Subban said. “I’m on for two goals, and in my career I’ve never liked to be on the ice for even-strength goals so I’m going to have to look at the tape and get a little better for next game.”NOTES: Dallas is 15-1-1 when leading after two periods. … Pitlick scored in consecutive games for the first time this season. … Nashville RW Ryan Hartman played his 200th NHL game. … The Predators have not scored on the power play in nine of their last 10 games. GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Two shutouts in three games is an impressive feat, but Antti Raanta was just trying to make up for letting five goals get by him two nights earlier.He did [url=http://www.officialblackhawksproshop.com/authentic-adidas-hoodie]Chicago Blackhawks Hoodies Authentic[/url] , stopping 26 shots for his second shutout of the season in the Arizona Coyotes‘ 2-0 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday night.”I didn’t like at all the Thursday game,” Raanta said about a loss to Calgary. ”I was trying to be a little more patient today and focus on the shots and just making the first save and go from that, and it worked out really good.”Max Domi’s empty-net goal sealed the win long after Jason Demers gave the Coyotes the lead less than six minutes into the game.Arizona won for the sixth time in eight games and ended the Ducks’ four-game winning streak. The Coyotes had won four straight before falling to Calgary at home.The Coyotes scored on their fourth shot of the game, with Demers going top-shelf to put the puck past the out-of-position Ryan Miller at 5:58 of the first period. Demers scored his fifth goal of the season, and Arizona scored first for the seventh straight game.”As a 60-minute game, that’s one of our best all year,” Demers said. ”It’s always good to see a bounce-back. Winning teams do that. After we get that first goal I think we’ve been able to calm our nerves better than were at the start of the year.”Miller made 36 saves in defeat.The Coyotes failed to score on four power-play opportunities and are 0 for 13 over their last three games.The Ducks registered only seven shots on goal in the second period. They lamented losing points to a team far out of the playoff hunt.”We didn’t play hockey [url=http://www.officialblackhawksproshop.com/authentic-adidas-hats]Chicago Blackhawks Hats Authentic[/url] ,” Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf said. ”It’s just this time a year. We’ve got to find a way to be excited and play hockey. We can’t be showing up at the rink, throwing our skates on and expecting to win every night.”Anaheim pulled Miller in the final 90 seconds, and Domi scored with 1:01 to play for his fifth goal of the season.Josh Archibald assisted on both goals.Raanta reached 10 career shutouts. ”When you get the first one, the second one is a little bit easier to get,” he said. ”Took a little time to get the first one, but I think our five-man units are really good right now and they’re helping me out a lot.”Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said his team didn’t play up to its capabilities.”We charted ourselves two scoring chances in the third, that’s nowhere near enough [url=http://www.officialblackhawksproshop.com/authentic-adidas-customized]Custom Chicago Blackhawks Jerseys[/url] ,” Carlyle said.NOTES: Newly acquired G Darcy Kuemper is expected to make his Coyotes debut Sunday in the second of back-to-back games. … The Coyotes recalled F Laurent Dauphin from Tucson of the AHL on Saturday, but listed him as a healthy scratch. … C Freddie Hamilton had yet to play 19 games after being claimed off waivers, but saw his first action in an Arizona uniform Saturday. … F Richard Panik was scratched with a lower-body injury, announced just before the game.
