  • Predators' Pekka Rinne: Comes up huge against Montreal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/23/17) Rinne stopped 27 of 29 shots in Wednesday's shootout win over Montreal.

    Rinne has picked up three consecutive victories and has been excellent in each of them. The veteran owns a stellar 12-3-2 record with a .922 save percentage on the season. Rinne starts almost every night for Nashville and is yet to lose consecutive games this year, making him one of the best fantasy netminders around. Make sure he's in your lineup whenever the Predators are in action.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Gets the call Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/22/17) Rinne will face the Habs on Wednesday, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

    Rinne gets his seventh straight start and will face the struggling Habs, who will have Antti Niemi in net and Shea Weber (lower body) sitting out for the second straight game. Rinne has not lost in regulation at home, and he has a good chance to extend that streak. He's been excellent against the Habs in his career, going 6-2-2 with a 1.37 GAA and .951 save percentage.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Improves to 7-0-1 at Bridgestone

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/20/17) Rinne stopped 32 of 35 shots during Monday's 5-3 win over the Jets.

    The veteran backstop still hasn't lost in regulation at Bridgestone Arena this season, and he now sports a high-end 11-3-2 record, .921 save percentage and 2.48 GAA for the campaign. While there have been a few spotty outings along the way, Rinne is locked into a huge workload and should be started confidently in the majority of matchups.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Set to make home start

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/20/17) Rinne will get the starting nod in the confines of Bridgestone Arena against the Jets on Monday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

    Rinne has been nearly unbeatable in the Music City, as he has posted a 27-6-6 record at home over the course of the previous two campaigns. Regardless of where he is playing, it's been a strong start to the year for the netminder, considering he has 10 wins in 15 outings along with a .922 save percentage. The Finn will square off with perhaps the hottest goalie in the NHL on Monday -- Winnipeg's Connor Hellebuyck.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Makes 29 saves in win over Avalanche

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/19/17) Rinne stopped 29 of 31 shots in Saturday's win over Colorado.

    Rinne had given up five goals in a loss to Minnesota on Thursday, but it didn't take long for him to get back on track. The veteran netminder has earned the victory in six of his last seven starts and is now sporting a .922 save percentage. He's been up-and-down recently, but Rinne's 10-3-2 record is a fantasy goldmine. His heavy workload and talented skill set make him a safe fantasy play whenever he gets the nod.
