The Nashville Predators are 29th in the National Hockey League in scoring, so it’s imperative for them that they get good goaltending.
That department hasn’t been particularly strong the last two nights.
After posting a shutout on March 8 and again four days later, Pekka Rinne was pulled Thursday in Vancouver after giving up four goals on just 12 shots.
Tonight in Calgary, Rinne was pulled again after allowing two goals – 1:40 apart in the first period – on the first two shots he faced against the Flames, according to NHL.com.
