Pekka Rinne G NAS 2 Days

Rinne will not be in the crease Tuesday against the Bruins, as backup Carter Hutton gets the nod, Eric Stromgren of the Tennessean reports.

Rinne has made every start for the Predators since Nov. 22, spanning 13 games. The heavy workload has done nothing to diminish his outstanding numbers on the season (1.84 GAA, .934 save percentage), but even the best netminders need a day off sometimes. Hutton will be making just his fourth appearance of the season.

Rinne made 30 saves on 31 shots in Monday's 5-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

Rinne continues to be a must-start as he collected his third straight win and league-leading 22nd of the season. The 32-year-old has a 1.84 GAA and .934 save percentage, so keep him rolling.

Rinne was the first goalie off the ice at Monday's skate and is expected to start against Columbus, according to Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean.

With Sergei Bobrovsky expected to start for the Blue Jackets, this is one of the best goalie matchups you'll see in hockey. You're starting Rinne and his 21 wins, 1.87 GAA at pretty much every opportunity unless we can find a good reason to tell you otherwise.

Rinne gave up five goals on 27 shots in Saturday's win over Minnesota.

It wasn't a good night for Rinne, who was bailed out by Nashville's offense in the win. The 32-year-old has now won 11 of his past 14 games, never allowing more than three even-strength goals in any start this season. With a 21-6-1 record, to go with a .933 save percentage and 1.87 GAA, Rinne is simply one of the league's best. He's a must-start every game.

Rinne was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and is set to start Saturday's game against the Wild, Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean reports.

Rinne's performance has been pleasantly static this season -- he's been simply exceptional since Game 1. His minute 1.76 GAA and outstanding .937 save percentage trail only Michael Hutchinson among qualifiers, but Rinne has seen significantly more action of the two. He's a great option in any venue, even on the road against a tough Minnesota squad.

Rinne stopped 33 of 35 and all three in the shootout Tuesday in a 3-2 victory over Tuukka Rask and the Bruins.

He and his countryman Rask dueled all the way to the end, at least until Rask gave up a first-round shootout goal. Rinne continues to build on his Vezina candidacy, as he's now posted nine straight games with a save mark of .906 or better (and .920 or better in eight of those games).

Rinne was the first goalie off the ice at Tuesday's morning skate and is on track to start later in the evening against the Bruins, Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean reports.

Rinne will make his 11th straight start as the Predators match up with Boston for the first time this season. The netminder has been consistently excellent throughout the campaign, submitting a save percentage below .900 in a game in just four of his 26 starts.

Rinne made 31 saves Saturday, but it wasn't enough, as the Predators were blanked 2-0 by the Sharks.

Rinne has been phenomenal lately, allowing only four goals over his last four starts. The 32-year-old is now 19-6-1 on the season with a league-leading .937 save percentage and 1.75 GAA. The early front-runner for the Vezina Trophy is a must-start every night he gets the call.

Rinne is projected to start Saturday against the Sharks.

One-third of the way through the season, Rinne has been the league's best goalie, owning a 19-5-1 record to supplement his magnificent ratios. Although a trip to the Shark Tank is daunting for just about any goalie, Rinne's success at just about every venue this season makes keeping him in your fantasy lineup a no-brainer.

Rinne shook off an early goal to make 31 stops in Thursday's 5-1 rout of the Coyotes.

Antoine Vermette scored on a power play just 4:11 into the first period, but Rinne shut things down completely thereafter and watched his team light up Mike Smith for five goals. All he's done this year is win, and in impressive style, so there's no reason to have him anywhere but in your lineup whenever he's in the crease.
