NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Pekka Rinne made 37 saves to lead the Nashville Predators to a 3-2 win over the Blackhawks on Tuesday night.
Filip Forsberg, Austin Watson and Roman Josi scored goals for the Predators, who have won 10 of 12.
Tommy Wingels and Lance Bouma had the goals for Chicago, which had its two-game winning streak snapped.
With Nashville clinging to a one-goal lead late in the third, Rinne made his best save of the night when he denied Nick Schmaltz's backhand from just outside the crease on a shorthanded breakaway. He later denied Wingels with the left pad in the game's final minute.
Forsberg opened the scoring at 3:16 of the first period.
Chicago goaltender Anton Forsberg stopped Filip Forsberg's initial attempt from the high slot, and the rebound deflected off of the right skate of Arvidsson, who was stationed just outside the Chicago crease. The puck drifted to the right, where Nashville's top goal scorer tapped in his 12th of the season.
Chicago tied it nearly two minutes later when Alex DeBrincat sent a pass to Wingels skating through the slot, where he redirected the puck over the glove of a diving Rinne.
Anton Forsberg made 28 saves.
Watson made it 2-1 at 3:48 of the second when Matt Irwin's shot from the left point was off the mark but deflected off of Watson's body and into the Chicago net. Officials upheld the goal after a challenge by the Blackhawks, who thought Watson had interfered with Anton Forsberg.
Josi scored a power-play goal at 2:32 of the third with a slap shot from above the left faceoff circle.
Nashville entered Tuesday with the league's best home power play conversion rate at 41.5%. The Predators were 1-4 in the game with the man advantage.
Bouma cut the lead to 3-2 midway through the third from the lower part of the right faceoff circle.
The Blackhawks were coming off a 7-3 win over Anaheim on Monday night.
DeBrincat had three goals and an assist in the win as, Patrick Sharp stopped a 16-game scoring drought.
"Pucks were bouncing my way today," DeBrincat said. "It's cool to get that over with."
DeBrincat, who turns 20 on Dec. 18, became the second-youngest player in franchise history to record a hat trick, trailing Jeremy Roenick by four days. He has nine goals and three assists in 11 November games.
"He's a great player," Sharp said. "You could tell that in training camp whenever he got the puck. He just has poise with it. He's looking to make a play. I said earlier he's playing like he's in junior hockey still, and that's a compliment. He's looking to make those plays. He's not intimidated with the speed or the pace of the game. You can see the results."
Nick Schmaltz had a goal and two assists and Artem Anisimov scored his team-high 11th goal as Chicago won for the fourth time in five games. Brandon Saad also scored and Patrick Kane collected three assists, extending his season-high point streak to seven games.
The banged-up Ducks dropped their fourth consecutive game. Ryan Kesler, Ryan Getzlaf and Patrick Eaves remain out with long-term injuries, Rickard Rakell missed his second straight game with an upper-body injury and defenseman Brandon Montour left midway through the third, favoring his right side as he skated off the ice.
