DETROIT (AP) — Ville Husso made 26 saves for his third shutout this season, and the Detroit Red Wings beat the Nashville Predators 3-0 on Wednesday night.


Filip Hronek, Dylan Larkin and Michael Rasmussen scored in Detroit's third straight win. It was Hronek's fourth goal in his last three games, and Larkin got his ninth of the season, tying for the team lead.

Nashville had gone 4-0-1 over its last five games and won its last six meetings with Detroit. Kevin Lankinen stopped 26 shots in his first start in nearly two weeks, but the Predators were shut out for the second time this season.

The Red Wings committed 10 giveaways in the first period, but the Predators only had seven shots on goal.

Larkin scored at 4:09 of the second period, snapping a wrist shot past Lankinen's glove.

Nashville had a 5-on-3 power play midway through the period but Husso stopped four shots.

With the Predators' Alexandre Carrier in the penalty box, Hronek ripped a shot from the point past Lankinen at 14:16 of the second. Jonatan Berggren and Andrew Copp collected the assists.

Rasmussen tacked on an empty-netter in the final minute of the third.
