Pekka Rinne stopped 30 of 32 shots during a 3-2 shootout victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Friday.

Fantasy Impact:

Rinne made some remarkable saves in this one as he was able to stonewall the Oilers in overtime and give the Predators the opportunity to win in a shootout. Amazingly, Pekka Rinne is 7-0-0 against the Oilers in his career. After he started out the season shaky, the pressure of Juuse Saros taking over has caused Rinne to get back to playing at an elite level. Rinne now holds a 17-12-2 record with a 2.35 goals against average and a .921 save percentage. He should be locked into fantasy line-ups when he is starting.
