  • Predators' Pekka Rinne: Stepping in against Flames

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3:38 pm ET) Rinne will guard the cage against host Calgary on Saturday, NHL.com reports.

    While he's experienced his fair share of peaks and valleys this season, Rinne's overall rate stats (2.34 GAA and .927 save percentage) are quite impressive, plus he's winning more often than not at 17-4-3. Since the Finn has played for Nashville and only Nashville over his 11-year career, we can use historical context to predict how he might perform in this next contest. He's played the Flames 21 times with a 6-6-5 record, 2.80 GAA and .901 save percentage, which is far inferior to his career averages. Consider looking elsewhere in DFS on Saturday's busy slate.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Stops 25 in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/14/17) Rinne made 25 saves on 26 shots in a 7-1 win over the Canucks on Wednesday.

    The Preds didn't need Rinne to have a great game to get the win, but he decided to stand on his head anyway. The big Finn already had a 2.40 GAA and a .926 save percentage before this outing, so chalk this up as another fine outing.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Hoping for better luck against Canucks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/13/17) Rinne will defend the road net from the Canucks on Wednesday night, NHL.com reports.

    Rinne is having a fabulous campaign, as evidenced by his 16-4-3 record, 2.40 GAA and .926 save percentage through 23 games. However, the Canucks hung three goals on the veteran netminder in his Nov. 30 home start. Wednesday's daily slate also features seven other starting netminders to consider if you're not banking on Rinne avenging for his most recent loss to the Orcas.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Turns away 36 in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/9/17) Rinne stopped 36 of 39 shots and five of six shootout attempts during Friday's 4-3 loss to Vegas.

    The veteran backstop did his part Friday, but he was outplayed by Malcolm Subban. Still, this was just the third loss in 14 games for Rinne, and he sports a rock-solid .926 save percentage and 2.40 GAA for the campaign. Continue to start him confidently, and especially at home, where Nashville is a dominant 11-2-2.

    Predators' Pekka Rinne: Starting in goal Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/8/17) Rinne led the Predators to the ice ahead of Friday's home match against the Knights, Brooks Bratten of the team's official site reports.

    Rinne has played extremely well between the pipes, owning an 11-2-0 record over 13 appearances in the last month. He will attempt to stave off a Vegas club that ranks third in the league in scoring (3.44 goals per game) this season.
