Rinne stopped 27 of 29 shots in Thursday's shootout victory over the Coyotes.

EDGE Analysis

It was the first start since Jan.9 for Rinne, who showed no signs of rust. The Finnish netminder stopped three of four shooters in the shootout and earned his 22nd victory of the season. He's picked up three straight victories and is sporting a .925 save percentage, making him a safe fantasy play in all formats right now.

Rinne will be in net for Nashville's contest against the Coyotes on Thursday, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

No surprise here as Rinne has been out of action since Jan. 9 just before his team's bye week. The 35-year-old goaltender is in the midst of another great season with a .925 save percentage and 2.43 GAA to go along with his 21-8-3 record. As always, Rinne is a must-start in all formats.

Rinne saved 25 of 26 shots during Tuesday's 2-1 win over Edmonton.

EDGE Analysis

Rinne and the Predators have been nearly unbeatable at home, as Tuesday's win improved the club to 13-4-2 at Bridgestone Arena. The veteran netminder is turning in a high-end fantasy campaign with 21 wins, a .925 save percentage, 2.43 GAA and three shutouts, and there's no reason to suspect his production to slip significantly moving forward. Continue to view Rinne as a go-to option in all seasonal settings.

Rinne has been named Tuesday's home starter versus the Oilers, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

This will be Rinne's first start against the Oil this season. Connor McDavid's squad has been among the most disappointing, as it currently ranks sixth in a Pacific Division led by none other than the expansion Golden Knights. Edmonton actually leads the league in shots per game (34.6) but it hasn't translated to much as just nine teams pose a weaker offensive attack. Obviously, that bodes well for Rinne, who brings a 20-8-3 record, 2.47 GAA and .924 save percentage into the next contest.

Rinne yielded three goals on 29 shots in a 4-3 victory against the Kings on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Even though he gave up three goals, it was good to see Rinne get back in the win column. Prior to Saturday, he had lost four of his last five starts. This was his 20th victory of 2017-18, which gives the 35-year-old four straight 20-win seasons. He is also ranked inside the top 12 in save percentage and GAA.

Rinne will get the start in Los Angeles on Saturday, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rinne is having a rough stretch, winning just one of his last five starts and posting a .891 save percentage in that span. The Kings won't give him any favors either, as they've racked up 12 goals in their last three games, while scoring on four of their last 10 power-play chances. Rinne will return to his normal self at some point this season, but fantasy owners should be hesitant deploying him until then.

Rinne allowed two goals on 30 shots in a 3-0 loss to Vegas on Tuesday. The third was an empty-netter.

EDGE Analysis

Rinne didn't play poorly but was ultimately bested by the team with the best home record in the NHL (17-2-1). Still, the Finnish netminder has only managed a single win in his last five starts, a span that's featured 15 goals, so there's plenty of room to improve his game. Rinne will have a great chance at getting back in the win column Thursday against Arizona, who happens to have the worst home record in the league (4-13-1).

Rinne was the first goalie off the ice at Tuesday's morning skate, indicating that he will start the evening's road contest against the Golden Knights, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rinne has had some very pronounced successes and failures over the last six contests, winning three of them while allowing one goal or fewer in each, while also losing three to the tune of at least three goals allowed in each contest. The Finn is certainly a bit of a risk against a very potent Vegas front that has been especially effective on home ice this season.

Rinne stopped 34 of 37 shots during Friday's 4-2 loss to Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran Finn has now lost three of his past four starts and sports a discouraging .880 save percentage during that stretch. Even with his underwhelming recent form in mind, it's tough to complain about Rinne's numbers (19-7-3 record, .924 save percentage and 2.47 GAA). If the luxury exists, it's still not out of the question to be selective with his opponents until he kicks this mini funk, though.

Rinne will guard the cage against the Wild on Friday, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rinne recovered from a pair of disastrous pre-break outings with a 29-save victory over the Blues on Wednesday. Fantasy owners will no doubt be hoping the netminder returns to his usual dominant self that has registered 19 wins in 28 games, along with a 2.45 GAA and .924 save percentage. The Finn could challenge for the 40-win mark this year for just the third time in his career.
