Predators beat Avalanche 4-2 for 2nd win

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Sergei Kostitsyn scored at 19:28 of the second period, and the Nashville Predators held off the Colorado Avalanche 4-2 Thursday night.

The Predators, coming off their first home loss in regulation since Jan. 5, improved to 18-3-2 in their last 23 home games. Pekka Rinne stopped 15 shots in his NHL-best 37th win.

Mike Fisher and Brandon Yip each scored a goal as Nashville won its sixth straight at home over Colorado. Martin Erat added an empty-netter.

Paul Stastny and Jamie McGinn each had a goal and an assist for Colorado. The Avalanche snapped a two-game winning streak after matching a season-high with seven goals in a 7-1 win Tuesday against Minnesota. Semyon Varlamov had posted shutout wins in his last two road games.
