Worried about Rinne’s consistency? The NHL isn’t. Earlier today, the National Hockey League announced its Three Stars of the Week: Tuukka Rask of the Boston Bruins, Mark Scheifele of the Winnipeg Jets, and our very own Pekka Rinne.

Rinne’s 3-0-0 record over the past seven games are likely what earned him this honor, along with making 83 saves for a .975 save percentage. It’s no secret Rinne is no longer a spring chicken, but he has a lot more to bring to the table than most want to give him credit for. While Saturday was Rinne’s first shutout of the season, his performance in several tilts prior prove his record should reflect more.

The Predators are off to Canada to take on the 6-6-3 Toronto Maple Leafs tomorrow night at 6:30PM.
