Rinne will start Tuesday vs. the Lightning.

Rinne stopped all 31 shots that he faced in the Predators' shutout win in Carolina last Friday. Just when it looked like Juuse Saros was taking over as the Predators' starter, Rinne posts a 31-save shutout and will start his 16th game of the season on Tuesday. He has not faced the Lightning this season, but is 6-2-2 with a 2.89 GAA, .890 SV% and two shutouts on home-ice this season.

Rinne led the Predators onto the ice for warmups.

Rinne was yanked after allowing five goals on 22 shots in the Predators' 9-4 blowout loss in Colorado last Thursday. It was the second time in three games that Rinne allowed five-plus goals but outings like that are usually few and far between for the veteran. He was 2-1-0 with a 3.33 GAA and .886 SV% in three games vs. the Canucks last season.

Rinne led the Predators onto the ice for warmups.

Rinne stopped 23 of the 24 shots that he faced in an easy win over the Red Wings on Monday. It was a nice bounce-back game from the veteran netminder, who allowed six goals on 27 shots in his previous outing. He is 2-0-0 while stopping 56 of 59 (.949 SV%) in his only two road starts of the season and faces an Avalanche team without two of their top forwards and No.1 netminder.
