  • Predators' Pekka Rinne: Halts Habs at home

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/14/19) Rinne was sharp Thursday, making 34 saves in a 3-1 win over the visiting Canadiens.

    Give Rinne's teammates a big assist in what was his 20th win of the season. Soon after Thomas Tatar scored to tie the game early in the third period, Nashville responded with a pair of goals, propelling Rinne to yet another win over Montreal. After Thursday's win, the Finn is 9-2-2 lifetime versus the Original Six franchise.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Between pipes against Habs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/14/19) Rinne will tend the twine at home versus Montreal on Thursday, Marc Antoine Godin of The Athletic reports.

    Rinne has not been his usual dominant self of late, as he is 2-5-1 with a 3.52 GAA and .889 save percentage in his last eight appearances. A matchup with the Canadiens could be just what the Finn needs to right the ship, considering he is 8-2-2 with a .951 save percentage in 12 career matchups against Montreal. If the netminder can't get out of his funk soon, the Preds could find themselves unable to track down Winnipeg for the top spot in the Central Division.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Disappoints at home

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/13/19) Rinne stopped 24 of 27 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Red Wings.

    The loss is a disappointing one for Rinne and the Predators. It is the netminder's second loss in as many starts and the team's third consecutive defeat. While there's still nothing official, it would make sense for Nashville to go back to Rinne against Montreal on Thursday. For his career, the Finnish netminder is 8-2-2 with a 1.46 GAA and .951 save percentage in 12 appearances versus the Habs.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Scheduled to take on Wings

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/12/19) Rinne is preparing to take on the Red Wings in a home start Tuesday, Paul Skrbina of The Tennessean reports.

    Detroit is third worst in the league in generating high-danger scoring chances (44.82 percent), plus the Wings rank 26th in the league in scoring at 2.75 goals per game, making this a particularly good time to target Rinne in DFS contests. However, Rinne has been quite streaky of late, winning every other contest since Jan. 17 -- a five-game span.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Outdueled by rookie from St. Loo

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/9/19) Rinne made 30 saves Saturday in a 3-2 loss to the Blues.

    He was the Preds' best penalty killer, stoning the white-hot Blues on three power plays. But his teammates couldn't beat the equally hot Jordan Binnington enough to earn the win. Rinne has been up and down of late -- he is 2-4-1 in seven starts over the last month. And he has allowed 23 goals in that span. The Preds will continue to manage his time to make sure he's rested for the postseason. Be sure to have a contingency plan as you head into your playoffs.
