  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Snaps three-game winning streak

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/20/19) Saros allowed four goals on 30 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Panthers on Saturday.

    This performance ends a nice little hot streak for Saros, as he came into the night 4-0-1 with a .966 save percentage in the last six games. Prior to this run, Saros held a .500 record, but even after Saturday's loss, he is now 15-12-5. He's elevated his other numbers as well, but he could still use some improvement in both his 2.67 GAA and .908 save percentage.

    Predators' Juuse Saros: Starting against Panthers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/19/19) Saros will start Saturday's home meeting with the Panthers, Robby Stanley of NHL.com reports.

    With Pekka Rinne struggling recently, the Predators will turn to their talented backup, who sports a 2.58 GAA and .910 save percentage this season. Opposing Saros is a Panthers team that could be without star center Aleksander Barkov, who injured his hand Friday against the Maple Leafs. Should Barkov sit, Saros would gain even more appeal in daily formats.

    Predators' Juuse Saros: Coasts to win Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/15/19) Saros turned aside 25 of 27 shots faced during Tuesday's 7-2 rout at home against the Capitals.

    Saros continued his hot streak with his third win over the last four starts. The Finnish netminder could continue to eat into Pekka Rinne's workload if he continues to play well, so consider stashing him on your bench if in need of goaltending help.

    Predators' Juuse Saros: Effective in relief Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/13/19) Saros relieved Pekka Rinne midway through Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Hurricanes, stopping all 15 shots he faced.

    This was certainly a tough loss for the Preds, but the team is still 5-1-2 in its last eight games, so it's doubtful anyone is hitting the panic button in Nashville right now. However, if you look a little deeper, the usually rock-solid Rinne has given up four or more goals in five of his last nine starts. If the team is monitoring his workload and fatigue levels as it should, you could see Saros get the starting nod a little more often during the second half of the season in an effort to keep Rinne fresh come playoff time. From a fantasy perspective, be ready to sub the young netminder into your lineups at a moment's notice, as he's still a good bet to come away with the win anytime he straps on the pads.

    Predators' Juuse Saros: Shakes off illness

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/13/19) Saros (illness) practiced Saturday and will suit up for Sunday's game versus the Hurricanes, NHL.com reports.

    Saros fell ill ahead of Thursday's game versus the Blue Jackets, causing Pekka Rinne to start back-to-back games. Saros will likely work as Pekka Rinne's backup in this outing, but that will be determined when warmups commence at 12:00 P.M. ET.
