Rinne led the Predators onto the ice for warmups.

Rinne gave up five goals on 26 shots in the Predators win over the Capitals last Thursday. Rinne has won each of his first three starts while posting a 3.00 GAA and .894 SV%. Nashville is the highest-scoring team in the league right now but a road-start in Vegas is a tough assignment. It will be Rinne’s first road start of the season. He was 11-10-3 with a 2.72 GAA and .915 SV% outside of Nashville last year.

Rinne will start Tuesday vs. the Sharks.

Rinne stopped 22 of 24 shots in the Predators season-opening win over the Wild last Thursday. Juuse Saros lost his start vs. Detroit on Saturday, so the Predators will come back to Rinne tonight vs. the Sharks. The veteran did not face San Jose last year, but the Sharks are off to a terrible start and Rinne is an impressive 20-9-1 in his last 30 starts on home-ice.

Rinne game up five goals on 26 shots in the Predators 5-3 loss to the Stars in Game 5. After a hot-start to the playoffs, Rinne has give up a combined nine goals on just 34 shots (.735 SV%) in the last two games. The series now shifts back to Dallas where Rinne turned in a sparking 40-save performance in a Game 3 win but was also pulled just 14 minutes into a Game 4 blowout loss. If Nashville wants to keep their season alive, Rinne will need to be at his best tonight.
