NEWARK, N.J. — Pekka Rinne made 22 saves and the Nashville Predators ran their season-opening winning streak to three with a 3-1 victory over the struggling New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night.

Roman Josi had a power-play goal in the first period and added a short-handed empty netter in the third. Eric Nystrom also had an empty-net goal for the Predators, off to their best start since 2010-11.

Rinne has played a major role in that success, allowing only two goals so far.

And he set another club milestone. Rinne has played 384 games, most by a Nashville goalie. Tomas Vokoun held the old mark. Rinne also owns the club records for wins (207) and shutouts (37).

Rinne lost his shutout when Kyle Palmieri scored on a power play with 1:40 left.
