Pekka Rinne will be in the lineup Tuesday night against the Pittsburgh Penguins at Bridgestone Arena. Whether or not he will start is the question.
After being sent to the Milwaukee Admirals on conditioning assignment, Rinne is on his way back to rejoin the Predators Monday. In his time there, Rinnes started in two games, making 16 saves in a 9-1 victory Friday over the Iowa Wild and 17 saves in a 2-1 win against the Rochester Americans. Below are his highlights of the two starts.
It is in fact a reality that his return could come against a highly skilled Pittsburgh squad.
A reporter in Milwaukee asked Rinne if he's ready to go Tuesday against Pitt, he said, "If you ask me, I’m ready to go, absolutely."

Hopefully he can lead the Predators the rest of the season in hopes of getting a wild card spot in the Western Conference.
