  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Sees relief duty in Game 5

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/9/17) Saros stopped 12 of 15 shots in relief of Pekka Rinne in Thursday's Game 5 loss to the Penguins.

    While Rinne was pulled after giving up three goals on nine shots, Saros really didn't fare that much better. The 22-year-old is viewed as the goaltender of the future for Nashville, but he's locked into a backup role behind the veteran Rinne for now. Considering the success Rinne has had on home ice this postseason, it's very unlikely that the team will turn to Saros for Game 6 in Nashville on Sunday.

    Predators' Juuse Saros: Secures win in high-scoring affair

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/6/17) Saros stopped 30 of 33 shots in Thursday's 7-3 road win over the Stars.

    It was smooth sailing for the rookie until he allowed all three goals in succession during the second period. Still, the Finn didn't seem rattled and ended up nailing down his 10th win in 21 outings. Saros will be a restricted free agent after next season, whereas veteran starter Pekka Rinne could end up testing the open market following the 2018-19 campaign.

    Predators' Juuse Saros: Hoping to dim Stars on Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/6/17) Saros will start in goal Thursday, facing the Stars on the road, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.

    It makes perfect sense that Predators coach Peter Laviolette will be deploying his backup tender here; it'll result in rest for Pekka Rinne ahead of what promises to be another intense playoff grind. Saros took a road loss to the Blues his last time out, but his peripherals -- including a 2.32 GAA and .924 save percentage -- remain robust. His matchup is a relatively strong one, as the Stars have struggled defensively all year and have six forwards out with injuries.

    Predators' Juuse Saros: Coughs up loss to Blues

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/2/17) Saros allowed four goals on 25 shots in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Blues.

    It was the 21-year-old Finnish netminder's third regulation loss in his last five games, and drops his overall record to an underwhelming 9-8-2. With just three games left on the Preds' regular-season schedule -- and none of the back-to-back variety -- don't be surprised if the team rolls with starter Pekka Rinne in every game down the stretch as it looks to wrap up a playoff spot. From a fantasy perspective, Saros offers not much more than a decent spot start every once in a while, meaning his value is limited to deeper formats at the present time.

    Predators' Juuse Saros: Will guard goal Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/2/17) Saros will be in the crease for Sunday's matchup in St. Louis, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.

    The backup has been solid in his recent performances, stopping 82 of 87 shots over the course of his last three games. The Blues may have already clinched a playoff berth, but they're still fighting for seeding, so don't expect Saros to face off against a team that's asleep at the wheel.
