For the Winnipeg Jets the unfortunate injury to Pekka Rinne could be a blessing or a hinderance. Last Sunday versus the Predators the Jets in the normally emotional and boisterous MTS Centre the Jets had more than enough trouble solving the riddle that was Carter Hutton, in fact he had the Jets rather twister around.
The task does not change tonight for the Jets and that may be a good thing....

The Nashville Predators and Minnesota Wild celebrated the fact they were on national TV by throwing a yawn party. Were it not for Pekka Rinne‘s heroics, there would be just about nothing to write about.
In the end, however, Minnesota beat the Preds 2-0 in front of 17,651 at Xcel Energy Center and in front of an NBC Sports Network broadcast.
The Wild brought the intensity early...
Bad news broke this morning for the Nashville Predators as it appears that Pekka Rinne will be out for a minimum of four weeks with a hip scope.

Out of all Nashville’s offseason surgeries Pekka Rinne’s hip had to be the one with complications.
Colin Wilson’s two shoulders? Fine. Paul Gaustad’s shoulder? A-OK. Gabriel Bourque’s knee? It has looked good so far. Instead it was arguably the Predators’ most important player who will miss at least a month.
Rinne’s May hip arthroscopy was Nashville’s most delicate...
The Blues will get their second look of the season at Nashville backup goaltender Carter Hutton tonight at Bridgestone Arena.

In his last...
Carter Hutton continued his impressive start to the season on Thursday night, leading the Predators to another victory over the Winnipeg Jets...
If you come to Predators practices early, you’ll see a goaltender shifting his weight around the crease with a medicine ball in his bare hands under the watchful eye of goaltending coach Mitch Korn.
That is Carter Hutton, Nashville’s 27-year-old backup, who backstopped the Predators to a 3-2 overtime win Thursday against the Winnipeg Jets.
The goal of the drill is to help Hutton’s...
#Preds G Pekka Rinne to see Drs. this AM, more clarity on his situation later today

Yesterday the Predators recalled Milwaukee goaltender Magnus Hellberg but no word on the health of Rinne.
Where was the Nashville Predators' offense Tuesday night? It was obvious from puck drop to the final horn the team was flat and not producing any scoring chances, leaving Pekka Rinne, who stopped twenty-seven shots, out to dry. Nashville had a total of sixteen shots on goal (3, 6, 7) -- a season-low thus far.
The most frustrating of it all was the Wild were playing with five...
The Nashville Predators lost to the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday due, in part, to the fact they fired just 16 shots on goal. Tonight, it took 9:12 to get their first one but, thanks to Carter Hutton, the Preds remained in the game.
Starting goaltender Pekka Rinne was shelved for at least a month earlier in the day, giving Hutton his second start of the season (and third of his NHL...
The best and worst from Nashville’s 3-2 overtime win over the Winnipeg Jets at Bridgestone Arena on Thursday night.
Carter Hutton has appeared in 3 games for the Predators, earning a 2-0 average with an absurdly low 1.37 GAA and an absurdly high .959 save percentage. His save percentage is second highest in the league (behind Colorado’s Jean-Sebastian Giguere) among...
