DENVER - Nashville Predators goalie Anders Lindback left Saturday night's game against the Colorado Avalanche late in the third period because of an undisclosed injury.

Lindback was hurt with 2:14 left in the third. The Nashville backup landed on the back of his head after Colorado left winger Cody McLeod collided with him in the crease.

Lindback had 34 saves when he left the game. There was no report of the severity of the injury.

Pekka Rinne, the Predators' No. 1 goalie, replaced Lindback.
