Saros will start Saturday's game in Dallas, Paul Skrbina of The Tennessean reports.

Saros posted a 33-save shutout in Thursday's 2-0 win over Dallas.
Saros turned aside all 33 shots he faced Thursday, giving him his first win in three starts following back-to-back losses. He has three shutouts so far in 2019-20 and might very well serve as his team's starter against the Stars on Saturday when the two teams meet again.

Saros has played well recently, maintaining a 2.35 GAA and .925 save percentage through his last three appearances, but he's posted a disappointing 0-2-0 record over that span due to lackluster goal support from his teammates.

Despite the loss, his second in as many starts, Saros is still 3-2-0 with a .929 save percentage in his last six games.

Saros has made four straight starts and has been outstanding, posting a .932 save percentage and 3-1-0 record.

Saros played a strong game Saturday, something that seems to be happening with much more frequency of late. The knock on Saros has always been his height -- he's just 5-foot-10 in a land of super-tall twinetenders. But these performances show the Preds he should be the top dog in 2020-21.
Saros is expected to guard the home goal during Saturday's clash with Colorado, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

He is 7-3 with two shutouts in his last 10 starts (dating back to Jan. 12.) That's good enough to keep him active when he's in the blue paint.

Saros will start in goal Saturday on the road in St. Louis, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.
The decision to start Saros on Saturday likely means Pekka Rinne will go Sunday in the second half of Nashville and St. Louis' home-and-home series this weekend. Saros is coming off a shutout in his last start but will be in tough, facing a Blues team that currently leads the Central Division with 74 points. St. Louis comes into Saturday's game winless in its last three games, so Saros will look to add to the champs' misery.
