31. Boston Bruins at Nashville Predators. Now with 100% more twang!

No David Krejci tonight. Lucic-Kelly-Cunningham is a thing. Pekka Rinne. What a way to start a three game road trip. The Bruins are headed down to Nashville to play a goalie who is smoking hot. Rinne currently leads the NHL in GAA, SV% and wins. He’s single-handedly kept a Nashville team that is mediocre in scoring in the playoff hunt. The team posts a 1.93goals against per game...

Are Preds Leaning Too Heavily on Rinne?

By Greg @GreekGoalie35 One of the more recent debates amongst PredNation fans is the ever mounting workload of starting goaltender Pekka Rinne.
