  • Predators' Pekka Rinne: Surrenders four goals in World Cup opener

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/19/16) Rinne gave up four goals on 43 shots in Sunday's World Cup loss to Team North America.

    While he was busy and made some fantastic stops, Rinne overall looked very shaky and mishandled pucks on several occasions. While he looked fairly sloppy, the young and fast-skating Team North America pummeled the Nashville netminder and laid on all kinds of pressure. While it's definitely not the start Rinne wanted, the veteran should rebound and build off his strong third period in which he stopped all 12 shots he faced.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Forces Game 7 with win Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/9/16) Rinne denied 15 of 18 shots in Monday's Game 6 overtime win over the Sharks.

    It wasn't the best performance from Rinne, but his mates picked him up offensively, and the Finn rebounded well after giving up a pair in the first period. The 33-year-old has mostly been reliable in the playoffs, but he'll need to step it up Thursday if Nashville hopes to make its first ever trip to the Western Conference Final.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Starts in net Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/9/16) Rinne will protect the net against the Sharks for Game 6 on Monday

    Rinne will need to rebound from his disappointing Game 5 outing in which he allow four pucks to find the back of the net. In his previous two contest at home, the 33-year-old has been fantastic, as he has faced a combined 74 shots on goal while logging a .946 save percentage. If you put faith in those types of trends, then Rinne may be the netminder for you, however all bets are off in the postseason.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Burned for four goals in Game 5

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/8/16) Rinne gave up four goals on 27 shots in Saturday's Game 5 loss to the Sharks.

    Not the best night for Rinne, who has been dynamite in this series and was coming off a 44-save overtime win. The 33-year-old is sporting a .917 save percentage this postseason and will need to rebound Monday if the Predators hope to stave off elimination against the Sharks in Game 6.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Starts in net Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/7/16) Rinne will work between the pipes Saturday evening, facing the Sharks on the road in Game 5 of the Western conference semifinals, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.

    Rinne was fantastic in his last start, turning aside 44 of the 47 shots he faced en route to a 4-3 triple-overtime victory in Thursday's Game 4 in Nashville. The home team has come out on top in each of the first four games of the Predator's second-round matchup with the Sharks, a trend Rinne will hope to buck in Saturday's Game 5 in San Jose. Although it hasn't shown in this series, the Sharks have struggled at home at times this season, making Rinne a somewhat sneaky play in daily contests for those willing to roll the dice on a road starter.

    April 4, 2015: Preds' Rinne Allows Four Goals In Loss
    Rinne allowed four goals on 24 shots in Saturday's loss to the Stars.Another poor showing from Rinne, who has allowed eight goals in his last two games. He still owns an impressive 41-15-6 record on the season, but the Predators are likely hoping the 32-year-old can finish the regular season strong before heading into the postseason. With a .924 save percentage and 2.15 GAA, Rinne should still be rolled out with confidence every game. He's sure to bounce back.
