  • Predators' Pekka Rinne: Records 33 saves in defeat

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/14/17) Rinne made 33 saves on 35 shots in a 2-1 overtime defeat against the Blackhawks on Saturday.

    The Predators were nursing a 1-0 lead in the third period when new old Blackhawks wing Patrick Sharp tied the game at one. In overtime, another former Blackhawks wing who returned this summer, Brandon Saad, won the game. Rinne didn't open up the season very well, but in his last two starts, he's yielded just three goals on 66 shots.

    (10/14/17) Rinne will defend the cage during Saturday's tilt in Chicago, Thomas Willis of the Predators' official site reports.

    The Finnish netminder was stellar in his last outing, stopping 30 of 31 shots in Thursday's win over Dallas. Saturday, Rinne will face a stern test in the form of a Blackhawks team that has already scored 23 goals in just five games.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Makes 30 stops in win over Stars

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/13/17) Rinne stopped 30 of 31 shots in Thursday's win over the Stars.

    A very strong outing for the veteran netminder, who looked shaky in his first two contests of the season. Having played 60-plus games in each of his previous three seasons, it's clear Rinne is relied on heavily in Nashville. The 34-year-old is a must-own fantasy netminder due to his heavy workload and sensational skill that gives the Predators a great shot at winning every night.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Gets starting nod for Thursday's contest

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/12/17) Rinne will start between the pipes in Thursday's home game against the Stars, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

    Rinne has been extremely shaky early on this season, posting a 1-1-0 record while registering an abysmal 4.16 GAA and .869 save percentage through his first two appearances. The Finnish backstop will look to right the ship Thursday in a matchup with a Stars team that has only potted a total of seven goals over their first three games of the campaign.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Holds on for 6-5 win Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/10/17) Rinne saved just 25 of 30 shots during Tuesday's 6-5 win over Philadelphia.

    The Flyers scored five unanswered goals to take a 5-3 lead early in the third period, but the offense bailed out Rinne on Tuesday. He wasn't sharp in the season opener against Boston, either, so fantasy owners have to be modestly concerned. It was also telling that Rinne didn't even start the second game of the season against Pittsburgh in a non back-to-back spot. While it's obviously far too early to write off the 34-year-old veteran, it's not out of the question to be selective with his matchups for the immediate future.
