  • Rinne gave up eight goals on 31 shots in Monday's 8-3 loss to the Oilers. Rinne surrendered five goals in a span of 5:13 during the third period before head coach John Hynes finally pulled him for Juuse Saros. This may be the low point for Rinne in 2019-20 -- he hadn't allowed more than six scores in a game before Monday. He dropped to 18-14-4 with a 3.17 GAA and an .895 save percentage in 36 starts. Saros is already confirmed to start Tuesday's game against the Wild -- it could be awhile before Rinne is trusted with another start.

  • Rinne will tend the twine for Monday's home matchup with Edmonton, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports. Rinne hasn't been in the crease since Feb. 21 versus Chicago, when he suffered an overtime loss after giving up just two goals on 38 shots. The netminder will miss the 55-game mark for the first time since 2013-14 and, as a result, won't reach the 30-win threshold as well. With Rinne taking the first game of the Preds' back-to-back, Juuse Saros will be in goal for Tuesday's road clash with Minnesota.

  • Per Thomas Willis of the Predators' official site, Rinne (illness) stayed on the ice for extra work after morning skate, which suggests he'll back up Juuse Saros for Thursday's clash with Calgary. Rinne didn't dress for Tuesday's win over Ottawa due to an illness, but he was never expected to be sidelined for long. The veteran backstop will likely be back between the pipes for Saturday's game against the Avalanche.

  • Rinne (illness) won't dress for Tuesday's game against the Senators, Kristopher Martel of Fox Sports Tennessee reports. Juuse Saros will get the starting nod, and Connor Ingram, who was recalled from AHL Milwaukee on Tuesday, will serve as the backup. Rinne was trending in the right direction after the game-day skate, so he will aim to get healthy for Thursday's matchup versus the Flames.

  • Rinne (illness) will be in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Senators, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports. The Predators have yet to name a starter for Tuesday's tilt, but Rinne will at least be available to back up Juuse Saros if he doesn't get the nod. If that ends up being the case, the 37-year-old Finn will almost certainly be back in goal for Thursday's clash with Calgary.
