Predators' Pekka Rinne: Falls apart late

Rinne turned aside 29 of 33 shots in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss on the road to the Blue Jackets.

Rinne has allowed three or more goals in six of his last seven starts despite playing behind a Predators team that is starting to get key players back from injury. The 36-year-old could cede some more starts to countryman Juuse Saros down the stretch in a bid to stay fresh for the playoffs, though Saros is battling an illness at the moment. Regardless, the Finnish netminder has a 2.31 GAA and .919 save percentage behind a 17-10-3 record in 33 appearances, so keep playing him whenever he gets the call.
