  After undergoing surgery on his hip, his second one of his career, Nashville netminder Pekka Rinne appears to be on track for a recovery. He underwent a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) this week and reportedly has not had any setbacks. Both the team and the team doctors are thankful that they have identified the infection-which means now it is just a matter of recovery. Rinne had a surgery on his left hip on May 9 and his recovery was smooth enough for him to start the current season in goal for his Predators. For now, it looks to be about two week’s living on crutches as well as antibiotics before he is scheduled to undergo another MRI later in November. It will still be a few more weeks before the Preds can think about getting him back. That time can’t come soon enough. Nashville has very little goaltending experience behind Rinne and it has shown. Not including Sunday night’s game against the Devils, the Predators have surrendered 24 goals in six games without Rinne, all games where Carter Hutton played. Rinne has become a valued member of the Nashville hockey club, with his 2.31 GAA and a .917 save percentage. He was 4-4-1 before the second hip operation.
