ST. LOUIS (Ticker) -- Pekka Rinne just keeps refusing to lose.

Rinne will be in the crease again Monday, hoping to keep his
perfect record intact when the Nashville Predators host the St.
Louis Blues.

The 26-year-old Rinne made 32 saves and J.P. Dumont snapped a
scoreless tie with 9:12 remaining in the third period to lead
Nashville to a 1-0 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Saturday.

The shutout was the second in the last three starts for Rinne,
who improved to 6-0-0 with a 2.25 goals-against average. It
also was the Predators' third straight win.

"The guys are doing a great job in front of me," said Rinne, who
will be making his fourth consecutive start. "A shutout is
never just the goalie."

The Blues have been inconsistent this season, but did avoid a
third straight loss with a 4-3 triumph over the Phoenix Coyotes
on Saturday.

For the second consecutive game, Patrik Berglund had a goal and
an assist for St. Louis.
