Saros allowed five goals on 29 shots in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Blues.
This was just the third time this season Saros has allowed five or more goals -- he surrendered five versus the Canadiens on Nov. 20 and six against the Jets on Oct. 23. The Finn has lost his last three starts (0-2-1) while allowing 12 goals in that span. He's started all eight of the Predators' games in January so far, but David Rittich will likely get the nod Tuesday versus the Canucks. For the season, Saros owns a 20-11-2 record with a 2.43 GAA and a .923 save percentage in a league-leading 33 starts.
