Predators' Pekka Rinne: Getting Game 5 nod

Rinne is projected to start Game 5 of the conference semifinals Saturday against Winnipeg based on his being mentioned in the game preview.

Rinne is coming off his best performance of the series, having stopped 32 shots in a 2-1 Game 4 road win to even the series at two games apiece, including an incredible save on Josh Morrissey with the knob of his stick. While coming home for Game 5 is generally viewed as a good thing, it's interesting to note that Rinne posted only a .919 save percentage at Bridgestone Arena this season compared to a .937 road mark.
