Smith's goal, assist lead Predators over Avalanche 5-2

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Craig Smith keeps putting himself in the right spot for the Nashville Predators.

Smith had a goal and an assist, Pekka Rinne made 29 saves and Nashville beat the Colorado Avalanche 5-2 on Saturday night.

Smith opened the scoring with 35 seconds remaining in the first period. With Nashville on a power play, goalie Semyon Varlamov stopped P.K. Subban's slap shot from the blue line, but Smith was in front and able to put the rebound in for his seventh goal.
