NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Jeremy Swayman made 42 saves, Jake DeBrusk and Brandon Carlo scored, and the Boston Bruins beat the Nashville Predators 2-0 Thursday night.

Swayman’s shutout was his first of the season and third of the rookie’s NHL career. After stopping 26 shots over the first two periods, Swayman was heavily tested in the third. One of his best saves came when he denied Matt Duchene from the slot with the Predators on a power play.

He also stopped a redirection from Colton Sissons with around three minutes left.

Juuse Saros made 31 saves for Nashville.

DeBrusk scored the first goal at 14:38 of the opening period. With the Bruins on a power play, he snapped a wrist shot from the top of the left faceoff circle past Saros and just underneath the crossbar on the short side.

Boston has scored four power-play goals in 10 opportunities over the last three games.

Carlo made it 2-0 just 30 seconds into the second. Former Predator Erik Haula forced a turnover inside the Nashville blue line and sent a pass to Carlo in the high slot. He skated to his right and beat Saros with a slap shot to the stick side.
