Predators aim to limit penalties vs. high-powered Jets

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Nashville Predators are taking more penalties than any team in the NHL and allowing the opposition an average of just under five power-play chances per game.

Even with goalie Pekka Rinne playing some of the best hockey of his career and a penalty-killing unit that rose to the occasion Saturday night in a 5-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche, spending double-figure minutes in every game playing a man or two short is not the recipe for success.

"We definitely don't want to roll the dice playing a first period like that with 11 penalty minutes," Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said after the Colorado game.
