ST. LOUIS -- Missouri lost a 62-59 heartbreaker to Illinois on Saturday, but the Tigers' hearts should not be broken. Their hearts, in fact, should be more full of hope than they've been all season.

On career-high pace for games played, is exhaustion an issue for Preds' Rinne?

Nashville, Tenn. -- Seventy-four games. That's what Nashville Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne is on pace to play this season. It wouldn't be the first time that Rinne suited up for more than 60 games in a season and it quite possibly won't be the last. He's been down that road twice before with the Predators, playing 64 games in 2010-2011 and 73 games the year after. Being between...

Fixing power play continues to be area of focus for Predators

NASHVILLE -- Through the first quarter of any season in the NHL, you can get a good sense of how to rank a team's performance in all facets on the ice.
