Undefeated: Goalie Pekka Rinne improved to 5-0 this season by stopping 19 of 21 Colorado shots. Rinne was actually pulled from two games this season after surrendering a flurry of early goals, but Nashville rallies in those games meant Rinne didn’t suffer the losses.

“The biggest stat for me is the wins,” Rinne said.

“I’ve played a few games now and I am getting used to the NHL speed and skill level.”
