Pekka Rinne is encouraged by his finish to the 2015-16 season.

In his last 20 starts of the year, he posted a 14-3-2 record with a 2.27 goals-against average and a .921 save percentage. "It was a lot of ups and downs," Rinne said. "Personally, I wanted to be better during the regular season. I always have high expectations for myself. I thought that it was hard to get consistency going on throughout the season. I feel like I had a lot of good games, but then (an average game would follow) or something like that." He was also happy with his performance in the playoffs, but there were some rough games there as well. Rinne will try to get off to a good start at the World Cup of Hockey to warm up for the 2016-17 regular season.

"I think he really enjoyed playing with Oshie," GM Brian MacLellan said of Ovechkin. "I mean, that takes a lot of the pressure off him, offensively, and I think he can play longer given a good team, a deep team."
