Rinne will start against the Coyotes on Thursday, Eric Stromgren of the Tennessean reports.

Rinne is projected to start Thursday's game against the Coyotes.

The Predators didn't hold a morning skate, but all indications are that Rinne will enter the net for his 25th outing of the season. He might be the best goalie play on the board for Thursday's slate in a matchup against a Coyotes squad that has lost three games in a row by a combined 14-4 margin.

Rinne stopped all 26 shots -- with a little help from the pipes -- to deliver a 3-0 win Tuesday in Colorado.

Sure, a couple Avs rang the metal, but those don't even count as shots on goal, so Rinne's not sweating 'em, and neither are his fantasy owners, who have been thoroughly enjoying the best numbers of Rinne's already fairly illustrious career.

Rinne will be back in the net Tuesday versus the Avalanche, Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean reports.

Rinne is in the midst of what has qualified as a skid for him this season, as he's taken losses in two of his last three games. However, it was actually in the victory that he posted his lowest save percentage (.906) of the three, seemingly providing little reason for his fantasy owners to become alarmed. He should make for a trusted option Tuesday versus the reeling Avalanche, who have lost three straight and will be without starting goalie Semyon Varlamov (groin).

Rinne gave up two goals on 30 shots in Saturday's loss to the Blackhawks.

It was just Rinne's fifth loss of the season, as he is now 17-5-1 on the year. While Rinne has now dropped two of his last three starts, we wouldn't be worried, as he has allowed just two goals in each of those losses. With a .931 save percentage and 1.89 GAA on the season, Rinne remains one of the best fantasy goalies around.

Rinne lead the Predators onto the ice for pregame warmups Saturday, and will start in goal for their matchup against the Blackhawks.

Rinne has been red hot of late, winning seven of his last eight starts and owning a 1.88 GAA on the season.

Rinne spoiled Martin Brodeur's Blues debut Thursday making 29 saves on 32 shots for a 4-3 victory.

It's not the greatest start for Rinne, but it's still good enough to start a new winning streak for the Finnish goalie after his six-game run of victories ended Tuesday against these same Blues.

Rinne will be in the crease Thursday against the Blues, Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean reports.

Rinne improbably saw his six-game winning streak come to an end against the lowly Hurricanes, but even in that rare misstep, he was still stellar, stopping 23 of 25 shots. The Blues represent a significant upgrade in competition, but until he struggles over a prolonged period, Rinne is worth rolling against any opponent.

Rinne stopped 23 of 25 shots, but was stuck with a 2-1 loss Tuesday in Carolina, ending his six-game winning streak.

Despite ending the streak, Rinne clearly didn't play poorly, but rather was the victim of Nashville's offense going to sleep again.

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

Incredibly, Rinne has followed up a spectacular October with an even better November. He's reeled off six wins in a row to bring his record to 10-1-0 this month, during which he's provided a 1.70 GAA and .938 save percentage. He's quite easily the best fantasy goalie option at the moment.
