Montembeault led the Panthers onto the ice for warmups.

Montembeault allowed two goals on 28 shots in the Panthers loss to the Islanders last Saturday. It was a solid first start for Montembeault, who has stopped 45 of the 48 shots (.938 SV%) that he has faced so far this season. Montembeault should be left on the bench on Saturday though. The Predators are one of the best home teams in hockey and enter play leading the NHL in goal-scoring (4.29 GF/pg).

Rinne led the Predators onto the ice for warmups.

Rinne allowed two goals on 35 shots in the Predators win in Vegas on Tuesday. Rinne has opened the season on a four-game winning streak while posting 2.76 GAA and .908 SV% in the process. Tonight he faces a Panthers team on the tail-end of a back-to-back in a building where he is 22-9-1 in his last 32 starts.

Quick will start Saturday vs. the Flames.

Quick allowed five goals on 36 shots in the Kings loss to the Golden Knights last Sunday. Through three starts, Quick has allowed 19 shots on 92 shots (.793 SV%). When your GAA and SV% are almost the same, you know you’re not playing well. Calgary is t-20th in goal-scoring right now but it’s very difficult to trust Quick in this spot given how poorly he has started the season.

Rittich will start Saturday in Los Angelels.

Rittich allowed one goal on 28 shots in the Flames win over the Red Wings on Thursday. Rittich has been hot as of late, winning two in a row while stopping 48 of 50 shots (.960 SV%). The Kings offence has been solid early-on but they are still 2-5-0, so don’t hesitate to use Rittich on Saturday night.

Greiss led the Islanders onto the ice for warmups.

Greiss allowed two goals on 23 shots in the Islanders win over the Blues on Monday. Greiss and Semyon Varlamov continue to split starts and tonight is Greiss’ turn in the rotation. He has started the season 2-1-0 with a 2.28 GAA and .925 SV% in his first three starts and should be a great option against a Blue Jackets team that is in the bottom-5 in scoring and on the tail-end of a back-to-back.

Korpisalo starts Saturday vs. the Islanders.

Korpisalo stopped 30 of 32 shots in the Blue Jackets win over the Stars on Wednesday. Korpisalo has won three of his last four starts while posting a 2.25 GAA and .914 SV% and has not given up more than two goals in three straight outings. The Islanders come in averaging just 2.43 goals per game (25th in the NHL) so Korpisalo makes for a decent option on the second-half of a back-to-back.

Jarry will start Saturday vs. the Golden Knights.

Jarry made 27 saves on 29 shots in the Penguins win in Winnipeg last Sunday. It was a great start to 2019-20 for Jarry, who gets the nod tonight vs. Marc-Andre Fleury and Vegas Golden Knights. Jarry had a .915 SV% in 47 AHL starts last year and a .907 SV% in 30 career NHL appearances. He’s a solid backup but not a great spot-start option against Vegas.

Bishop will start Saturday in Philadelphia.

Bishop allowed three goals on 35 shots in the Stars loss in Columbus on Wednesday. After a dominant 2018-19 campaign, Bishop has struggled to start the year, posting 2.84 GAA and .899 SV% in six starts (1-4-1). Most of his struggles have come on the road, where he’s 1-3-0 with a 3.30 GAA and .891 SV% so far.
