Predators goalie Pekka Rinne leads the NHL with four shutouts and ranks among league leaders in goals against average and save percentage, but he’s frustrated with his performance in shootouts.
On Monday, Rinne expanded on comments he made after a 2-1 shootout loss to Minnesota on Saturday, when he called himself “terrible in the shootouts” after surrendering goals to two of three Wild shooters.
The Predators have suffered a league-worst five shootout losses, and Rinne’s .556 save percentage in shootouts leaves Nashville ranked 21st in that category.
“I feel like I’m probably not so comfortable right now in shootout situations,” said Rinne, who had a .700 save percentage in shootouts last year and a .794 save percentage the year before that.
