Pekka Rinne G NAS 5 Hrs

Rinne was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and is in line to start Tuesday against the Kings, Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean reports.

Rinne is expected to square off against Kings backup Martin Jones in the first matchup between the two teams this season. The netminder has historically struggled against Los Angeles (7-6-1, 2.72 GAA, .897 save percentage), but his outstanding production this season should allow Rinne's fantasy owners to overlook that.

Rinne made 28 saves through regulation and turned away all shooters in the shootout in a 3-2 win over Florida on Saturday night.

He's now 13-3-1 in 17 starts and his ratios are outstanding. He really has put those hip injuries behind him.

Rinne will indeed get the start Saturday against the Panthers, Steve Goldstein of Fox Sports Florida reports.

Rinne has looked like his old self after battling some nasty hip injuries in recent seasons, and currently leads the league with 12 wins.

Rinne is expected to be the starter in net for Saturday's game against the Panthers.

After backup Carter Hutton got the starting nod Thursday against Ottawa, it would be a monumental surprise if Rinne wasn't in the net Saturday night. A winner of six of his last seven games, Rinne is expected to match up against the Panthers' Roberto Luongo.

Rinne will not start in goal Thursday against the Senators, Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean reports.

With starts in 16 of the Predators' previous 18 games this season, Rinne has shouldered a heavy burden, so coach Peter Laviolette will try to afford him some measure of rest here. Backup Carter Hutton will get a rare start in Rinne's stead and could represent a decent streaming option for fantasy squads in search of daily goalie plays.

Rinne stopped 29 of 31 shots and got a whopping nine goals of offensive support in Tuesday's trouncing of the Maples Leafs.

Well, that's certainly about as much help as a goalie can ask for. Rinne's won six of his last seven starts now and hasn't given up more than two goals in any of those wins. When allowing two or fewer goals in a game, Rinne's gone 11-0-1 this year. Give the skaters some credit for making things easy on him with reliable offensive support, but Rinne gets plenty of credit too for shutting down opposing offenses game after game.

Rinne was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and will be in the net Tuesday against the Maple Leafs, Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean reports.

Rinne has guided the Predators to all 11 of their wins this season, posting a sub-2.00 GAA and .929 save percentage over 15 outings. Jonathan Bernier will man the opposite net for the host Maple Leafs.

Rinne made 21 saves on 22 shots for his 11th win over the season Saturday against Winnipeg.

A great bounce back effort from Rinne, who was torched for four goals in Thursday's loss to the Blues. Rinne has now won five of his last six games and has recorded an impressive .929 save percentage and 1.92 GAA on the season. He has arguably been the best fantasy goalie thus far, making him a must-start every night the Predators play.

Rinne will be in goal Saturday against the Jets.

Rinne was battered for four goals on 27 shot attempts his last time out Thursday against the Blues, but that shouldn't stop fantasy owners from rolling him with confidence. The netminder has reeled off 10 wins in 14 starts this season, posting a 1.98 GAA and .928 save percentage in the process.

Rinne saw his four-game winning streak end Thursday as he allowed four goals on 27 shots to the Blues.

Rinne has only taken three regulation losses in 14 starts this season, so we'll forgive him the off night, considering the stats he's put up in the early going. He'll likely start Saturday against the visiting Jets in an attempt to get back in the win column.
