Saros makes 31 saves as Predators blank Oilers 3-0

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) Juuse Saros and the Nashville Predators found a way to shut down Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers.

Saros made 31 saves in the shutout and the Predators ran their winning streak to five games with a 3-0 victory over the Oilers on Saturday night.

"We knew before the game they had lots of talent so we had to be solid in the defensive zone," said Saros, who is unbeaten in four game this season and got the call with Pekke Rinne out with an injury. "I think we were that today and our penalty kill was really great, too."
