The Predators were down 2-1 in the third period, but blue liner Ryan Ellis tied it up with less than three minutes to go in regulation. Rinne also turned aside three of the four shots he faced in the shootout. The Predators goaltender has now won three games in a row. He has a 22-8-3 record with a 2.41 goals-against-average and a .925 save percentage this season. He'll continue to be a strong fantasy option going forward.

Jan 18 - 7:40 PM

Pekka Rinne has been selected to the upcoming NHL All-Star Game.

Rinne has been excellent this season, while sporting a 21-8-3 record with a 2.43 goals-against average and a .925 save percentage. He also has posted three shutouts. Rinne will join teammate P.K. Subban and coach Peter Laviolette on the Central Division team.
Jan 11 - 11:15 AM

Pekka Rinne stopped all but one of the 26 shots he faced in Tuesday's home victory against the Oilers.

Rinne and the Predators head off into a week-long break with a victory in their pockets. The veteran netminder is one of the most consistent in the game, improving to 21-8-3 overall, while giving up three or fewer goals in each of his past five contests. The Predators will be back in action next Tuesday against the visiting Golden Knights.
Jan 9 - 11:00 PM

The Nashville Predators will have Pekka Rinne in goal tonight against the Edmonton Oilers.

Rinne is coming off a 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday. He will bring a record of 20-8-3 with a 2.47 goals against average and a .924 save percentage to tonight's game.
Jan 9 - 7:54 PM

Pekka Rinne is expected to be in the blue paint against Edmonton on Tuesday night.

Rinne had 26 stops in a 4-3 win over Los Angeles on Saturday in his last outing. He has a 20-8-3 record this campaign with a 2.47 goals-against average and a .924 save percentage. Rinne has been superb in his career versus the Oilers with a mark of 18-6-1 to go with a 2.37 GAA and .915 SV%.
Jan 9 - 3:12 PM

Pekka Rinne stopped 26 of 29 shots in a 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Kings.

Rinne's best stop of the night came with his pad to deny Drew Doughty of a goal on Doughty's spin-o-rama attempt. The win breaks a two-game losing streak for the Finnish netminder, bringing his record to 20-8-3 with a 2.47 goals against average and .924 a save percentage. The 35-year-old might be losing more starts to backup Juuse Saros but he remains one of the top fantasy goaltending options. The Predators are just trying to keep him as fresh as possible for the post-season.
Jan 7 - 1:23 AM

Pekka Rinne will get the start in goal for the Nashville Predators on Saturday night when they take on the Los Angeles Kings.

Rinne is 19-8-3 on the season for the Predators but has lost four out of his last five games. He sports a 2.45 goals-against average and a .924 save percentage. In 23 career games versus the Kings, he has 11 wins and one shutout, so it should be an interesting matchup as he goes head-to-head with Jonathan Quick.
Jan 6 - 10:06 PM

Pekka Rinne is projected to start tonight against the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday night.

Rinne hasn't been confirmed as the starter yet though. He has just one win in his last five decisions for the Preds, but he may get a break against the Coyotes who've lost back-to-back games if he plays. Rinne's record is 19-8-3 with a 2.45 goals-against-average and a .924 save percentage.

Jan 4 - 8:31 PM

Pekka Rinne allowed just two goals on 30 shots in Tuesday's 3-0 setback against the Golden Knights in Vegas.

Rinne is having some difficult over the past month, allowing three or more goals in six of his past 11 appearances. However, he was much better in this one against one of the better offenses in the NHL, but the offense let him down with no support. Nashville has provided just five goals of support over his past four outings. Despite the rough patch he remains a must-start in most fantasy formats.
Jan 3 - 2:41 AM

Pekka Rinne will be in goal tonight against the Vegas Golden Knights.

Rinne has lost three of his last four starts but will be hoping to get off to a nice start in the new year. He will enter tonight's game with a 19-7-3 record, a 2.47 goals against average and a .924 save percentage.
Jan 2 - 9:31 PM

Pekka Rinne is the likely starter for Tuesday's tilt against Vegas.

Rinne was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate, which is usually a good indicator of who will get the nod. He has lost three of his last four outings and he has allowed three goals or more in each of those contests. Still, he is 19-7-3 on the year with a 2.47 GAA and .924 save percentage, so a rebound performance could be just around the corner.
Jan 2 - 5:39 PM

Pekka Rinne allowed three goals on 37 shots in Friday's 4-2 loss at Minnesota.

Rinne has shown some chinks in the armor lately, allowing a total of 13 goals over his past four appearances with just one win to show for his efforts. His next win will be his 20th of the season, but it's uncertain if the Predators will turn back to him for the second end of a back-to-back situation Saturday at home against the Wild or if Juuse Saros will get the nod.
