Pekka Rinne allowed four goals on 28 shots in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

It looked like Rinne and the Preds would escape this game with the win, but Lightning forward Steven Stamkos tied the game with under 30 seconds remaining before Tyler Johnson won it in OT. Rinne has just one win in his last five games. The 33-year-old has a 20-18-8 record with a 2.57 goals-against-average and a .902 save percentage.

Austin Watson and Petter Granberg will be scratched from Friday's match with Tampa Bay

Through 38 games in his rookie campaign, Watson hasn't had much of an impact as a 24-year-old. With just five points and 53 hits, he along with Granberg are better suited for your waiver wire.

Pekka Rinne will face Washington on Tuesday night.

As bad as Rinne has been this season, he's been even worse against the East. Through 17 game he's 7-6-4 with an .891 save percentage and 2.80 GAA. Yikes. How the mighty has fallen.
Feb 9 - 7:37 PM

Colin Wilson (lower body) has been activated from injured reserve.

He has missed the last 12 games with a lower-body injury. If Wilson gets another opportunity to play with Ryan Johansen and James Neal then he's worth keeping an eye on.
Feb 9 - 12:31 PM

Shea Weber scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's win over the San Jose Sharks.

Weber did all of his damage in the third period, as he assisted on Filip Forsberg's goal and then scored one of his own less than 10 minutes later. The 30-year-old has 14 goals and 35 points in 53 games this season.

Calle Jarnkrok has been playing well since being placed on Nashville's top line last Thursday.

Jarnkrok has scored two goals in two games since joining Ryan Johansen and James Neal. Whether or not he can continue to be the solution on the left wing of that line remains to be seen, but he could be a solid under the radar addition to your fantasy lineup. The 24-year-old has nine goals and 16 points in 52 games this season.
Feb 7 - 10:28 AM

Viktor Arvidsson scored a pair of goals in Saturday's 6-2 win over the San Jose Sharks.

Arvidsson's second period goal extended Nashville's lead to 3-1 and his third period marker put them up 5-1. This was the first multi-goal game of the 22-year-old's career, and it was also his first goal since Dec. 7. He ha five goals and seven points this season.
Feb 7 - 10:25 AM

Ryan Johansen registered a pair of assists in Saturday's 6-2 win over the San Jose Sharks.

Johansen picked up the primary assist on James Neal's first period goal and the added another helper on Calle Jarnkrok's second period marker. The 23-year-old has posted multi-point efforts in back-to-back contests. He has 10 goals and 40 points in 51 games this season.
Feb 7 - 10:19 AM

Filip Forsberg registered three points in the Predators’ 6-2 win against the Sharks on Saturday night.

Forsberg scored once and assisted on both of Viktor Arvidsson’s markers. He had been pointless in his past four games. To say this season has been a disappointment for Forsberg would be an understatement as he has 15 goals and 33 points in 53 games after posting 26 and 63, respectively, in his rookie year. Shea Weber (goal, assist), James Neal, Calle Jarnkrok got the other goals. Mike Ribeiro and Ryan Johansen each chipped in with two assists apiece.

Pekka Rinne yielded two goals on 30 shots in the Predators’ 6-2 win against the Sharks on Saturday night.

Rinne is starting to turn the corner. Even after a poor outing against the Flyers in his previous game, he has now posted a save percentage of at least .933 in five of his past six games. The Predators are good enough to make a run in the West, but their goaltending and goal scoring from forwards has been subpar. Rinne has a 2.50 GAA and .904 SV%.
