  • Predators' Pekka Rinne: Wins Vezina Trophy
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rinne took home the Vezina Trophy awarded to the NHL's top goaltender, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports. Rinne has finally taken home the Vezina after three failed attempts prior. Those three close calls included a couple of bridesmaids and a third-place finish. Rinne compiled a 2.31 GAA and a .927 save percentage during the 2017-18 season, posting a league-best eight shutouts en route to a 42-13-4 record. He didn't fare quite as well in the playoffs, amassing just a 3.07 GAA and a .904 save percentage during the run and 3.49 and .900 marks during the seven-game series loss to the Jets in the second round. The veteran netminder doesn't have a contract heading into the offseason, so it's possible he could don another uniform if the postseason showing convinced the Predators' brass that it's time to give 23-year-old Juuse Saros the reins between the pipes.

  • Predators' Pekka Rinne: Pulled in Game 7 loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rinne was pulled just 10:47 into Thursday's season-ending, 5-1 Game 7 loss to the Jets. Rinne got the quick hook after allowing a pair of goals on just seven shots to bury his team in a 2-0 hole. It was his third time getting pulled in four home games this series. This was a disappointing end to an otherwise fantastic campaign from the 35-year-old netminder, who guided his club to the league's best regular-season record with a 42-13-4 record, 2.31 GAA and .927 save percentage, as well as a career-high eight shutouts.

  • Rinne will start in goal Thursday night against the Jets for Game 7 of the conference semifinals, WKRN reports. This is about as obvious of a starting goalie confirmation as it gets, as Rinne is one of the best goalies in the league -- hence how he's a finalist for the Vezina Trophy -- and it's his last chance to help the Predators advance to the Western Conference finals. With that said, the Jets have found success against the Finn in the series based on his pedestrian ratios (3.25 GAA and .906 save percentage) and Rinne losing every other game starting with the April 27 opener at Bridgestone Arena.

  • Predators' Pekka Rinne: Blanks Jets for win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rinne made 34 saves on 34 shots in a 4-0 shutout win over the Jets in Monday's Game 6. Rinne has struggled this postseason, as he came into this game with a 3.23 GAA and .898 save percentage in the playoffs. However, he is now 5-0 in games following a loss. Now the Predators are going to a Game 7, and they will hope the Finn can repeat this performance.

  • Predators' Pekka Rinne: Gets starting nod Monday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rinne will be between the pipes against the Jets for Monday's Game 6 tilt, Scott Billeck of NHL.com reports. Rinne has posted a 3.92 GAA and .887 save percentage over the previous five games of this second-round series. That's a far cry from his performance in the opening series against Colorado (2.60 GAA and .909 save percentage). Unfortunately for the Finn, he faces the unenviable task of shutting down the Jets' offense, which has been the most potent in the playoffs (3.80 goals per game).
