Saros' shutout lifts Predators over Wild 1-0

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Ryan Donato's bid to tie the game caromed off the crossbar, and the Minnesota Wild were stuck with another agonizing defeat.

Juuse Saros made 29 saves for his third shutout of the season and Ryan Johansen scored a short-handed goal as the Nashville Predators beat the Wild 1-0 Monday night.

With 1:30 to play and an extra skater on the ice, Donato found himself 1-on-1 with Saros in the left faceoff circle. His wrist shot beat the goalie but hit the crossbar, leaving Donato inches from scoring the game-tying goal.
