Pekka Rinne was outstanding, making 39 saves in the Predators’ 3-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night.
Rinne has been the key to success for the Preds this season. He is second in the NHL in save percentage (.930) and goals-against average (2.09). He has won four of his last five starts to propel the Predators into a tie for seventh place in the Western Conference. With Rinne playing at such a high level, the Preds chances of making the playoffs are looking pretty good.
