Rinne allowed five goals on 35 shots in Thursday's loss to the Wild.

EDGE Analysis

This was Rinne's first loss in five starts, but you wouldn't know that by his recent play. The veteran hasn't been at his best of late, giving up 12 goals in his last three outings. While he was outdueled by Devan Dubyk on Thursday, Rinne owns a .921 save percentage and remains an elite fantasy option. If you need an indication of how good he's been this season, this was just his third regulation loss through 14 contests. Count on him bouncing back.

Rinne will defend the net for Thursday's clash with Minnesota, Jessi Pierce of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Finn has won each of his last four decisions, posting a 2.70 GAA and .917 save percentage along the way, but will run in to the hottest goaltender in the world Thursday night. His counterpart Devan Dubnyk has pitched a shutout in each of the last three games, stopping 103 shots. However, every streak has to come to an end, with Rinne and the Preds looking to be prime candidates to do just that.

Rinne stopped 26 of 29 shots during Tuesday's 6-3 win over Washington.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran Finn has won four straight games and posted a serviceable .917 save percentage and 2.70 GAA along the way. The Predators appear to be rounding into top form with five consecutive victories, and the addition of Kyle Turris improves the club significantly. With Rinne locked into a cushy setup again in 2017-18, he projects to remain a rare matchup-proof option -- albeit one with more game-to-game variance than the elite fantasy netminders.

Rinne will be between the pipes for Tuesday's matchup with the Capitals, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rinne has faced an average of over 34 shots per game over his last four starts. He has shined at the heightened responsibility, posting a 4-1-0 record along with a 2.57 GAA and a .924 save percentage. It's easy to see the veteran backstop is playing hot right now, but a matchup with the Caps is always one that should make fantasy owners nervous, even if they've been struggling for the first quarter of the campaign.

Rinne stopped 26 of 30 shots in Saturday's shootout win over the Penguins.

EDGE Analysis

While he wasn't as good as he was in his previous two outings, Rinne came away with his third straight victory Saturday, bringing him to 8-2-2 on the season. The veteran has been an excellent fantasy play this season, sporting a .929 save percentage and suffering just two regulation losses. He's one of the more reliable fantasy netminders around and should be in your lineup whenever the Predators are in action.

Rinne will guard the cage in Saturday's home game against the Penguins.

EDGE Analysis

Rinne has been one of the best netminders in the league this season. The Finland native is currently second in the NHL in GAA (2.08) and save percentage (.934), and he's posted an impressive 7-2-2 record in 11 appearances this campaign. He'll look to pick up a third consecutive win Saturday in a favorable home matchup with a Penguins squad that's only averaging 2.25 goals per game on the road this season, 29th in the NHL.

Rinne saved 35 of 36 shots during Tuesday's 3-1 win over Columbus.

EDGE Analysis

After allowing seven goals through his past two starts, this was an encouraging return to form for the veteran Finn. Rinne now sports a 7-2-2 record, .934 save percentage and 2.08 GAA for the campaign, and he should continue to be rolled out confidently in the majority of fantasy settings.

Rinne will be the road starter against the Blue Jackets on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Rinne is off to a hot start to the season, as he has a 2.19 GAA and a .930 save percentage thus far. Columbus is on the second night of a back-to-back, and there is a good chance Joonas Korpisalo will be starting for the Jackets. That should help Rinne's likelihood of picking up a win.

Rinne set aside 35 of 38 shots in Friday's 5-3 road win over the Ducks.

EDGE Analysis

Nashville's top tender looked as cool as a cucumber between the posts, despite host Anaheim steadily increasing its shot totals as the game wore on. Also, it's tough to blame Rinne for a Hampus Lindholm power-play goal from the second period, as the savvy defenseman simply blasted one home right off the draw. The Predators will now skip over to Los Angeles for Saturday's game against the Kings. We wouldn't assume that Rinne will get the nod for both sides of the back-to-back set -- historical B2B trends point to Juuse Saros getting the call -- though it's still best to wait for official confirmation before locking in your fantasy lineups.
