NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- After starting off slowly following some offseason roster moves, the Nashville Predators appear to be finding a groove.James Neal scored twice and Pekka Rinne stopped 27 shots for his 41st career shutout in the Predators 5-0 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday night.Ryan Ellis, Colton Sissons and Filip Forsberg also scored for the Predators, who won their third straight and improved to 4-0-2 in their last six. Rinnes shutout was his third this season.I think every year the seats get rearranged a little bit on the boat and youve got to figure out where your seat is and whats expected of you, Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. Theres definitely a little transition that we went through. I wish we handled it a little better and didnt get into that spot, but I think guys are scoring goals, too, now and theyre getting a little bit of confidence on the ice.Ducks goalie John Gibson gave up four goals on 18 shots before he was replaced late in the third period by Jonathan Bernier, who stopped eight of the nine shots he faced.The first two games in the teams season series have both been decided by five-goal margins, including Anaheims 6-1 win on Oct. 26 at home.I got pulled in that game and it wasnt a great effort by us so it was nice to get this one, Rinne said. This home stretch has been really good for me and my teammates. Hopefully. we can keep it going.Ellis gave Nashville a 1-0 lead with a snap shot from the low slot, beating Gibson high to the glove side with 2.4 seconds left in the first period. Filip Forsberg got his team-leading 10th assist on the play with a pass from behind the net.Nashville killed a four-minute double minor when P.K. Subban got called for high sticking early in the second period.Rinne made a diving save with his arm to stop Ryan Kesler in the crease.The Predators increased the lead to 2-0 when Neal fired a wrist shot through traffic with 7:47 left in the second after Arvidsson won a faceoff and dropped a pass back to him. That gave Neal a goal in four straight.We have a lot of new guys in a lot of different roles, but we felt like if we just did the right things it would come and it has, Neal said.Arvidsson also set up the next goal when he slid a pass from behind the net to Sissons, who fired a laser into the top right corner with 4:07 left in the period.Nashville scored again 67 seconds later when Forsbergs first goal of the season, a wrist shot from the bottom of the left faceoff circle, made it 4-0 lead.That chased Gibson and brought in Bernier.Neals power-play goal increased Nashvilles lead to 5-0 at 6:06 of the third period. It was his sixth goal and tied him with Forsberg for the team lead with 10 points.Game notes Ryan Getzlaf, the Ducks career assists leader (532), played in his 800th game with Anaheim. ... Nashville hosted Anaheim for the first time since edging the Ducks in a seven-game Western Conference quarterfinal last season. ... Neals goal-scoring streak is his longest since a five-game run Feb. 3-March 1 in 2014.UP NEXTDucks: Host Edmonton on Tuesday night in the opener of a five-game homestand.Predators: At Toronto on Tuesday night to start a three-game road swing.

Dan Boyles impressive NHL career is an interesting tale of both where the game has been and gone. He loves the game. He wants it to thrive. He wants fans to enjoy it. And because of that, the defenseman worries for it again today almost just as much as he did when he entered the league, undrafted, in the late 1990s during the heyday of the clutch and grab.When I started, you wanted the big defenseman that could hold up and chip the puck out, Boyle, who announced his retirement last Wednesday, told ESPN.com. There was no room for the smaller guy because it was too physical of a game. Then they take out the red line and everyone is going to fly, everyone is going to wheel.Those post-2005 lockout years were fun for a while, as rule changes -- such as no longer using the red line to prevent teams from making two-line passes -- helped open the game.But obviously coaches evolve, and the game evolves, said Boyle, a puck-moving magician during his 17 years in the NHL. And now, in todays game, youve got guys -- top guys included -- all blocking shots, breaking hands, breaking ankles. Youve got coaches wanting everyone to flip the puck in, dump the puck in.And the play that I hated the most in the post-red line era is when teams set up behind their own net and fire these long bombs to the forward at the opposite blueline, who just puts his blade out and then the puck is in the other zone. And nothing happens. I hated that. If theres a red line there, it forces the D-man to make a play. I am one of those guys who would love to see the red line back.It just so happens this is exactly what hockeys greatest defenseman believes too. For a few years now, including in his 2013 autobiography, Bobby Orr has espoused the belief that the red line needs to be reinstated, not just for the reasons Boyle brought up, but also because of safety concerns. Orr points to the fact that the game is faster than ever and feels its become dangerous because of it due to the the speed through the neutral zone and the kind of hits players are taking at that velocity.Putting the red line back in, perhaps, would not only force defensemen to make higher-end passing plays again (and maybe create turnovers in the process), but also slow the game down a bit. In fact, Orr feels the red-line should be restored at the youth hockey level so that defensemen develop the ability to make passing plays through the neutral zone.Theres no question that the game is faster than ever, and the players arguably more skilled then ever. But are they being allowed to use most of that skill?Right now, where the game is, is get the puck out of your zone as soon as possible and get it in the other zone as soon as possible. Dont make plays, dont go across ice, just get it in, said Boyle. There are so many skilleed players in the league today, but the game at times now is robotic.ddddddddddddThe neutral zone has been eliminated.Somewhere between the start of his career during the dead puck era and todays game, there were years in which Boyle says the sport was more fun to watch for fans.There was a very good game somewhere in between the clutch-and-grab when I started and the new era now, said the 40-year-old Ottawa native. The most exciting five minutes of hockey Ive ever seen as the overtime between Sweden and Team North America (at the World Cup last month). Now coaches dont want to play that way because its breakaway after breakaway. Im not saying we should go Globetrotter-hockey and go crazy. Im just saying from talking to teammates and ex-teammates, guys want to make plays.Boyle then paused. As always, his passion for the game comes through. Hes grateful for everything it has given him. He feels so privileged to have played in the NHL. But hes coming at this from the angle of a guy who just wants the game to be as entertaining as possible for fans.Theres just so many good, young hockey players out there now, Boyle said. I just wish more of them could be allowed to make plays.Dont get him wrong: Boyle strongly believes in situational play, that its important to understand whos on the ice and who youre playing against. There are times, such as when youre protecting a lead late in a period or a game, when its the right call to chip it in off the glass and get it deep in a safe area. He just feels the entire 60 minutes shouldnt be played that way.And again, he stressed that hes coming at this from a fans perspective -- which, for all intents and purposes, he is now that hes retired.It seems to me that the NHL could use his experience and his mind for the game. But for now, Boyle is going to lay low as he builds a home in the San Jose area and enjoys life with his wife and two daughters.I dont see myself doing anything (in hockey) for a while. How long is a while? I dont know. Im not going to jump right back into it, said Boyle. I dont have any plans. I love the game, I think Ill be associated with it somehow down the road, I dont know where and how.A Stanley Cup champion and Olympic gold medalist, Boyle reflects on something that makes him smile.Kris Letang, when he was younger, and Drew Doughty, they each came up to me and said I was the guy that they emulated, said Boyle. Just like I would have told Brian Leetch, had I met him when I was young. But that means the world to me, that I would have left that impression on two of the best defensemen in the game today.Now, if only they could be allowed to make more plays, right? ' ' '
