DENVER - Filip Forsberg showed again why he is an early contender to be the NHLs rookie of the year. Custom Vancouver Canucks Jerseys .His Nashville Predators teammate Pekka Rinne is making a case to be the leagues best goalie, too.Forsberg scored on 2:23 in and added a late assist, and Rinne earned his third shutout of the season as the Nashville Predators beat the Colorado Avalanche 3-0 on Tuesday night.Gabriel Bourque and James Neal scored empty-net goals in the closing minutes for the Predators, who avoided their first two-game losing streak of the season.Forsberg scored his 12th goal before the crowd had completely filed into the arena. Bourque sent a pass through the sticks of two Avalanche players, and the 20-year-old Swede broke into the open ice and flipped the puck over goalie Calvin Pickards left shoulder.I was trying to get it as high as possible, said Forsberg, who had success against Pickard in the minors last season. I was coming pretty close and got cut off by the back-checker. So I was trying to go high, and I was fortunate on that one.Rinne did the rest for the Predators. He stopped 26 shots and halted the Avs resurgent attack in the second period. He has won eight of his past 10 starts, limiting opponents to two goals or fewer in those games.He was great, Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. In the second period we were a little loose with what we were doing, but he made some big saves for us.He was just consistent through the night, and I thought our guys did a pretty good job defensively in front of him.Pickard was nearly as good. He made 33 saves in place of Semyon Varlamov, who missed his 10th game of the season after aggravating a groin injury during practice on Monday.Despite his efforts, the Avalanche fell to 0-3-1 in December after winning five of their last seven games in November.(Pickard) played unbelievable. Hes been playing so good since he has been up for us, Avalanche centre Nathan MacKinnon said. Its very unfortunate what happened to Varly, you know, re-injuring his groin, but with Pick playing like that, he gave us a chance to win.Forsberg, who leads NHL rookies with 12 goals and 15 assists, came up empty on his second breakaway chance in the first period after he was hooked by Alex Tanguay. Olli Jokinen was robbed by Pickards glove in the closing minutes.The Predators went 0 for 6 on the power play.It didnt matter, though, because Rinne — with some help — was perfect at the other end.Colorado captain Gabriel Landeskog missed an open net, and was the second Avs player to hit the post in the second period. The Avalanche were shut out for the fourth time this season.You know (Rinne) isnt going to allow a whole bunch of goals. They have a good team over there, Pickard said. Theyve had a lot of success early on. We were a post away from tying that game.Bourque scored an empty-net goal with 1:50 remaining — nine seconds after Pickard went to the bench. Neal added another with 58 seconds to go.NOTES: Predators centre Paul Gaustad, who missed Saturdays game with a lower-body injury, left with the same injury and didnt return. ... Avalanche coach Patrick Roy said Varlamov would miss a couple weeks. ... The injury-ravaged Avalanche recalled Paul Carey and Borna Rendulic from Lake Erie of the AHL. Rendulic became the first Croatian-born player to play in the NHL. He nearly scored, too, but his drive hit the post early in the second period. Alex Burrows Jersey.A caravan greeted the former Boston Red Sox pitcher at the airport and took him to a public park in Santo Domingo, where a crowd lined a 19-mile stretch of highway to catch a glimpse of him.Once at the park, Martinez went on stage accompanied by players David Ortiz and Robinson Cano as merengue music played and fireworks lit up the sky. Kirk Mclean Jersey .That means, of course, that John Wall beat the Spurs for the first time ever — within weeks of his first wins in head-to-head games against nemeses Chris Paul and Derrick Rose.LOS ANGELES -- The off-season party is in full swing for the Los Angeles Kings. The Kings paraded the Stanley Cup through downtown Los Angeles on Monday to celebrate their second NHL title in three seasons. A raucous contingent of fans lined Figueroa Street as the Kings rode nine double-decker buses and a flatbed truck about one mile to Staples Center. They showed off the Cup, the Campbell Cup and Justin Williams Conn Smythe Trophy while confetti flew and fans gave a nonstop standing ovation to the champions. The team gathered at the arena for a sold-out rally celebrating the second championship in Kings history. Los Angeles didnt win a title in its first 43 seasons before winning twice in the last three. The Kings wrapped up the Cup with Alec Martinezs double-overtime goal on Fridaay night, beating the New York Rangers 3-2 to end the finals in five games. Henrik Sedin Jersey. They had to win three consecutive seven-game series to reach the finals, emerging from the tough Western Conference with an overtime victory over Chicago. Los Angeles has won 10 playoff series while playing 64 post-season games over the past three seasons. "Its been a pretty incredible experience these last few years," said Martinez, who also scored the overtime goal that eliminated Chicago. "Its just as good as the first time. Maybe even better." The rally crowd wildly cheered Martinez, two-time champion coach Darryl Sutter and forward Marian Gaborik, the late-season acquisition who scored 14 goals in the playoffs. Gaborik is an unrestricted free agent this summer. Stitched Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys 2020Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
