Forsberg, Rinne help Predators beat Avalanche 3-2 in Game 4

DENVER (AP) Now that was more of the start Nashville was looking for. The finish? Not as much.

Filip Forsberg scored another creative goal, Pekka Rinne rebounded from a rocky performance with 31 saves, and the Predators withstood a furious rally by the Colorado Avalanche for a 3-2 win in Game 4 on Wednesday night to take a 3-1 lead in the first-round series.

"I guess probably some teams, every once in a while, can say everything is perfect. Everything is awesome," Predators coach Peter Laviolette said. "But most times you're trying to work on something, trying to get better at something."
