Pekka Rinne will be between the pipes for Monday's game against the New York Rangers.

Nov 23 - 6:48 PM

Pekka Rinne yielded four goals on 27 shots in the Predators’ 4-0 loss to the Wild on Saturday night.

Not what the Predators (or fantasy owners) are looking for, that’s for sure. Rinne has given up seven goals over his past two games, both of which were losses. He has a 2.27 GAA and .913 SV% this season. Rinne is still a strong number-one option in fantasy leagues.

Pekka Rinne will face the Wild on Saturday.

Not that you need us to tell you to start Rinne. After all, he's sporting a 10-3-3 record with a .917 save percentage and a 2.17 GAA. Just bear in mind he's starting on back-to-back nights.
Nov 21 - 7:22 PM

Pekka Rinne allowed three goals on just 17 shots in Friday's 4-0 loss to Columbus.

Rinne and the Preds didn't get off to a hot start in this one, as they allowed two goals in the first five minutes of the first frame. The 33-year-old had an uncharacteristically bad night at the office, but he'll continue to be a solid fantasy option going forward. His record drops to 10-3-3 on the season. Rinne has a 2.17 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage.
Nov 20 - 9:48 PM

Pekka Rinne will face the Blue Jackets on Friday night.

At 10-2-3 on the season with 2.11 GAA and a .921 save percentage so far, one doesn't have to think too hard to start one of the best goalies in the world year-in, year-out. Don't over think this.
Nov 20 - 6:09 PM

Pekka Rinne stopped 38 of 40 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks.

Goaltending was the difference in this one, as Ducks goalie Frederik Andersen was pulled after allowing three goals on seven shots. Rinne is now 3-0-1 in his last four starts and has an overall record of 10-2-3 on the season. Rinne has a 2.11 goals-against-average and a .921 save percentage. He'll continue to be an elite fantasy option going forward.
Nov 18 - 12:19 AM

As if there was any doubt, Pekka Rinne will face the Ducks on Tuesday.

Don't be alarmed by the 30 pucks that have beaten Rinne thus far, it's through 14 games. That 9-2-3 record with a .918 save percentage should be all you need to be convinced to start one of the world's top netminders.
Nov 17 - 7:32 PM

Pekka Rinne earned a 20-save shutout versus Winnipeg on Saturday.

Not that Nashville needed Rinne to be at his best as they provided him with seven goals of support. Rinne improved to 9-2-3 with a 2.11 GAA and .918 save percentage.
Nov 15 - 12:24 AM

Pekka Rinne will be in his usual spot when the Predators play Saturday night---between the posts.

Rinne will get the start when the Preds facce off against the Jets. Rinne is again having a stellar season with an 8-2-3 record, a 2.27 goals against average and .913 save percentage.
Nov 14 - 12:50 PM

Pekka Rinne made 22 stops on 23 shots on Thursday night, but a lack of offense cost the Preds as they fell 2-1 to the Maple Leafs.

Though Rinne's fine performance ended in a loss, fantasy owners can still be pleased with the veteran's 8-2-3 record, .913 save percentage and 2.27 goals against average this season.
Nov 13 - 1:02 AM

Pekka Rinne will get the nod in Thursday's game against Toronto.

Rinne gave up five goals on 26 shots in Tuesday's win over Ottawa. He should be able to have a bounce-back game against a lackluster Toronto team. The 33-year-old has an 8-2-2 record with a 2.39 goals-against-average and a .910 save percentage.
Nov 12 - 6:27 PM

Pekka Rinne allowed five goals 26 shots in Tuesday's 7-5 win over Ottawa.

Rinne had an off-night but still managed to pick up the victory against the Sens. The Preds goalie gave up three goals on 10 shots in the first period and two goals on just three shots in the second frame. He was able to buckle down in the third and shut the door on the Sens while his team scored three goals of their own. Rinne has an 8-2-2 record with a 2.39 goals-against-average and a .910 save percentage. His fantasy owners should ignore tonight's performance and continue starting him with confidence.
Nov 11 - 12:51 AM

Pekka Rinne will face the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night.

You don't need us to tell you it's a good idea to start Rinne. As always, his numbers speak for themselves. He's posted a 7-2-2 record with just 24 goals against in 11 games, and a .917 save percentage. All systems go.
Nov 10 - 7:37 PM

Pekka Rinne gave up four goals on 28 shots in a 4-0 loss to St. Louis.

Rinne is 7-2-2 but has now given up four goals in two of his last three games. His GAA is now 2.16 with a .919 save percentage. Those numbers look good but are only 13th and 14th best in the NHL, making him a low-end number one fantasy goalie. He really is better than that and should show it the remainder of the season.
