  • Rinne saved 36 of 38 shots during Monday's 5-2 win over Ottawa. Now sporting an active 11-1-1 record with a .930 save percentage and 2.12 GAA, Rinne continues to thrive behind one of the best teams in the league. His .926 save percentage for the campaign is a career-best mark, and he's well on his way to a third 40-win showing. Additionally, Rinne's start-to-start consistency shouldn't be overlooked; he's held opponents to three goals or fewer in 34 of 43 appearances this year.

  • Rinne will guard the cage against Ottawa, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports. This will mark Rinne's second attempt at achieving 30 wins for the third straight season, after he faltered Thursday and only made 27 of 31 saves against Calgary. Regardless, the Fin has been a rock all year and his save percentage still sits at .925, the fifth best mark in the NHL. On the other side, Ottawa has struggled finding the back of the net in 2017-18 and only rank 25th in the NHL for shots per game (30.3) and 24th for goals scored per game (2.7). However, they've been especially hot lately, lighting the lamp three or more times in each of their last six contests, meaning Rinne will receive a stiff home test.

  • Predators' Pekka Rinne: Loses 4-3 to Flames
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rinne allowed four goals on 31 shots during Thursday's 4-3 loss to Calgary. The veteran entered this contest with a 14-3-2 record at Bridestone Arena this season, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to overreact to this mediocre showing. Rinne still boasts an elite .925 save percentage and 2.36 GAA for the campaign, so he remains a go-to option in all settings moving forward. It's also worth noting that once Kyle Turris (illness) is back in action, the Predators will be as healthy as they've been all season.

  • Rinne was listed among the "Players to Watch" on NHL.com's game preview of Calgary at Nashville on Thursday. One more win will stretch Rinne's streak of 30 or more victories to three seasons. The Predators rallied back from a three-goal deficit in the Finn's start against the Blues on Tuesday, and he improved his 2018 numbers to the tune of a 1.96 GAA and .934 save percentage with only two losses in that span. Calgary, which is 4-4-2 in its last 10 games, has had to adjust to the loss of ageless wonder Jaromir Jagr, who requested his release from the team to pursue options in Europe.

  • Rinne made 28 saves in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime triumph over St. Louis. Rinne gave up three goals in the first two frames, but Nashville's offense bailed him out by scoring three times in the final 10 minutes of regulation and again in overtime. With a 29-8-4 record, 2.31 GAA and .927 save percentage, Rinne's putting up another stellar campaign for the defending Western Conference champs.
