WINNIPEG - Nashville Predators goalie Pekka Rinne says it just feels good to be back and in shape after a difficult year last season. Tim Patrick Jersey .The veteran shut out the Winnipeg Jets 2-0 Friday night for his third victory in four games this season.It spoiled the Jets home opener in front of a sold out MTS Centre but for Rinne, sidelined with a hip injury for most of last season, the teams 3-0-1 start is particularly satisfying.It was a tough season last year, battling with the injury, it took forever to get back, he said.Im just having fun, enjoying hockey. I had a really good summer. Im back to where I need to be physically and just trying to enjoy it and stay healthy.Mike Ribeiro scored the only goal the visitors needed in the first period and James Neal added another at 7:31 of the third.We came in here with a good mindset, said Neal, like Ribeiro an addition to the Predators lineup after the club missed the playoffs last season.We knew the Jets would be fired up.Jets coach Paul Maurice said it was a disappointing way to open the season at home and despite the shots-on-goal edge for the Jets (31-27) he didnt think they had enough. The Jets and Predators came out tied for shots at even strength and on the power play but the Jets had four while short-handed.Part of it was it was a tight, tight game, there wasnt a lot of offence to be had, said Maurice.Weve got to put more of the basic stuff to the net so we can bang some ugly ones in.Ondrej Pavelec was also strong in the Winnipeg net and it took a little help for Nashville to score.Ribeiro tipped a shot from Seth Jones high past Pavelec at 16:19 to get things started then Neal added the insurance through traffic with a puck that appeared to glance off a couple of Jets.The Predators had four power plays and the Jets three, but neither scored. Both teams have struggled with their power play this season and its not a new issue for Winnipeg, which ranked 25th in the NHL last season.But new Nashville Centre Olli Jokinen, who played the last couple of seasons in Winnipeg, says both teams are getting chances.I think we got a lot of good looks, he said. Its just a matter of time. The goals will come. Weve been working that a lot in practice.Both teams had good looks on the power play. Youve got to just stay the course. Its a long season and goals will come.The Jets (1-3-0) have now gone four games without scoring a power-play goal and the Predators are doing only slightly better with one.They did a good job keeping things to the outside but I still think we got a few chances and some good looks, said Jets captain Andrew Ladd.I think we have to have a sense of calm and confidence in here that we can fix a few things. We obviously know that we need to do some things better here and well move on tomorrow, work on them in practice and get better.This is the second game out of four the Jets have played that theyve been shut out. They lost 3-0 in San Jose Oct. 11.But centre Bryan Little says it isnt as though theyre not creating chances.Especially on the power play we had some great chances and their goalie came up and made big saves, said Little.We get a couple of goals next game and everyone gets that confidence back.Rinne showed why his absence from the Nashville net was so painful last season, frustrating the Jets best several times.Winnipeg put on lots of pressure but the veteran drafted by Nashville in 2004 seemed to anticipate every move.Rinne played only 24 games last season due to a hip injury as Nashville missed the playoffs for a second season a row and coach Barry Trotz was sacked.Winnipegs record for home openers fell to 1-3 with the loss.Notes: The Jets (not counting their Atlanta years) are now 2-3-1 in their meetings with the Predators. Nashvilles two seasons out of the playoffs were preceded by seven out of eight seasons in the playoffs, including two trips to the conference semis. The Jets have made just one appearance when they were known as the Atlanta Thrashers (2007).

MONTREAL -- The Minnesota Timberwolves have been waiting for a player like Kevin Martin for a long time. Martins 21 points and five rebounds led the Timberwolves to a 104-89 victory over the Boston Celtics in NBA pre-season action Sunday night at the Bell Centre. "Hes a 20-point-a-night guy who showed throughout this pre-season what he can do," said Minnesota power forward Kevin Love of his teammate. "Its a really tough guard when you have a guy like Kevin Martin whos so fast and can get open, runs the break, can shoot the ball from distance. He only needs a split-second." Martin, who was traded to the Timberwolves in the off-season from the Oklahoma City Thunder, was lights out from beyond the arc, finishing five-for eight and scoring 15 of his 21 points from behind the three-point line. "I felt good. I got out there, had the team following, running offence," said Martin. "Offensively weve always been good with this system. Its easy to be good offensively." The Minnesota Timberwolves are averaging more than 100 points a game so far this pre-season. "In offence, we have enough talent to score," said T-Wolves point guard Ricky Rubio. "I dont think were going to have problems scoring points this season." Rubio led both teams with seven assists. After a 12-point Minnesota run early in the first quarter, Celtics coach Brad Stevens called a timeout to calm his teams nerves. The score was 18-7. Boston settled down and answered with a 9-0 run that saw Gerald Wallace, who ended the game with 16 points and three assists for Boston, score twice on quick breaks. The Celtics trailed 31-27 at the end of the quarter. The Timberwolves retained their slim advantage throughout the second quarter, and led 57-551 at the half. Dennis Smith Jersey. . Wolves guard Love led all teams in scoring at the half with 16 points. Minnesota kept Boston at bay in the third with good three-point shooting by Martin. The T-Wolves, who shot an impressive 40 per cent from three-point range, led 81-72 at the start of the fourth quarter. Thats when Minnesota began pulling away. Led by bench-player J.J. Bareas six points, the Timberwolves outscored Boston 23-17 in the final quarter. "Were getting more acclimated with each other each day that goes by," said Martin. "Im very hopeful for the season. We have a good team here. We have high expectations for ourselves as a team. We expect to win games." With only one win in seven games, the Celtics, who are rebuilding for the future, now have the second-worst pre-season record in the NBA. They enter the season with neither Paul Pierce nor Kevin Garnett, who were traded to the Brooklyn Nets in a franchise-altering off-season deal. Point guard Rajon Rondo, who played with Pierce and Garnett for six years prior to the trade, missed Sundays game with a knee injury. Rondo underwent surgery in February to repair a torn knee ligament, and hasnt played since. Toronto-born rookie forward Kelly Olynyk had four points for the Celtics on 2-for-4 shooting in 19 minutes of playing time. "Its fun. Its an honour to play in front of your country. Its a special feeling," he said The seven-foot 22-year-old was drafted by the Dallas Mavericks this year, and was at once traded to Boston. The game was held in Montreal as part of the 2013 NBA Canada series. The Celtics first game of the season is against Toronto at Air Canada Centre on Oct. 30. The Timberwolves open their season at home against Orlando on the same night.
