Rinne gave up four goals on 25 shots Tuesday in a shootout loss to Vancouver, ending his four-game winning streak.

Rinne showed curious inconsistency in March, which ended up as his second-worst month of the season in terms of save percentage. Still, even factoring in his off nights, he's been among the league's better goalies and should be rolled out the rest of the way whenever he's in action.

Rinne will draw the start in net Tuesday versus the Canucks, Willy Daunic of ESPN Radio Nashville reports.

Rinne has limited the Canucks to a grand total of two goals in his two outings this season, an achievement that's not overly surprising given his all-around dominance this season. With a robust 41-15-4 record supported by strong peripherals, Rinne is just two wins shy of matching his personal and the franchise record for victories in a season.

Rinne is in line to start Tuesday's game against the Canucks.

Rinne, who gave way to Carter Hutton on Sunday against Calgary, is slated to return to the Preds' net Tuesday, tied with Montreal's Carey Price for the league lead in wins, with 41.

Rinne nearly coughed up a 3-0 lead Saturday against the Capitals, but was able to escape with a 4-3 victory. He made 25 saves in the win.

Though he wasn't able to hold down the Capitals over the final two periods, Rinne made enough key saves to extend his winning streak to four games. With the Predators aiming to secure favorable positioning for the playoffs, it wouldn't be overly surprising if coach Barry Trotz stuck with Rinne for the second half of the team's back-to-back Sunday versus the Flames.

The Predators will roll with Rinne in goal for Saturday's matinee tilt in Washington.

After a relative rough stretch over the last few weeks, Rinne seems to be back to form, as he's won three games in a row while surrendering only four goals. The Capitals will counter with one of the league's better goalies in Braden Holtby in their net, potentially making for a low-scoring affair Saturday.

Rinne stopped 28 of 30 in Thursday's 3-2 win over Tampa Bay -- his third consecutive victory.

Rinne's starting to hit his stride again, having given up just four goals over the course of those three wins. He's been one of the league's best goalies all year long, so it's not surprising to see him righting the ship, but it's extra nice that he did it against the tough Tampa offense.

Rinne will be in the net Thursday against the Lightning, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

He'll square off against the Bolts' Ben Bishop, whose 36 wins on the season trail only Rinne (39) and the Habs' Carey Price (40). Rinne will have his work cut out for him in slowing the Bolts' powerful attack, but the goalie's impressive ratios this season (2.08 GAA, .927 save percentage) and over his last several outings probably makes him a safe activation Thursday, though a less attractive play in daily formats.

Rinne is slated to start Thursday's game against the Lightning, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Rinne, who will square off against a Tampa Bay squad that has won four straight games, has won his last two starts and heads into Thursday's action four triumphs shy of tying the Preds' franchise record for wins in a season (43) that he set in 2011-12.

Rinne stopped 27 of 29 shots Tuesday in a 3-2 overtime win against visiting Montreal.

A big win for Rinne against a quality opponent -- he needed this game even coming off a shutout of Buffalo, since no one's really too impressed by a blanking of the sad-sack Sabres. That's the 39th win of the year for Rinne, which is pretty darn spectacular, considering he missed a significant period of time to injury.

Rinne will start Tuesday's game against the Canadiens, The Tennessean reports.

Once the favorite to take home the Vezina Trophy, Rinne will be matched up against Habs goaltender Carey Price, who now seems to be ahead in the race for the award. Rinne is coming off a shutout and has been spectacular this season, but Price leads all qualified goalies in wins, save percentage and GAA.
