Saros led the Predators onto the ice for warmups.

Saros allowed six goals on 37 shots in the Predators loss in Los Angeles last Saturday. Saros has had a forgettable start to the season, losing each of his first two games while allowing 10 goals on 64 shots (.844 SV%). He hasn’t had very difficult opponents either. Arizona comes in averaging just 2.20 goals per game (29th) so this could be a spot where Saros gets back on-track.

Forsberg (lower-body) will be a game-time decision on Thursday.

It looks like the Predators avoided disaster and Forsberg will not miss an extended period of time. Forsberg was forced to leave Tuesday’s game in the late stages and did not return. He was not on the ice for Wednesday’s optional practice and head coach Peter Laviolette said Forsberg will “probably” be a game-time decision on Thursday.

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.
