Nashville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - Jonathan Bernier stopped 36 shots to notch
his first shutout of the season, while Phil Kessel and James van Riemsdyk
combined for a pair of second-period goals that lifted the Toronto Maples
Leafs over the Nashville Predators, 4-0, on Thursday at Bridgestone Arena.
Kessel lit the lamp 13:41 into the second stanza before assisting on van
Riemsdyk's third goal of the season late in the period that gave Bernier more
than enough breathing room.
Tyler Bozak and Joffrey Lupul each added a power-play marker late in the third
for the Leafs, who bounced back from Tuesday's 2-1 setback to Colorado.
Pekka Rinne was tagged for all four goals on 26 shots in the loss for
Nashville, which was coming off a 3-2 win over Minnesota in its home opener.
