FLYERS: Team Should be Weary of Pekka Rinne Tonight

PREDATORS RINNE, ONE OF THE BEST GOALIES IN THE NHL, WILL TEST FLYERS’ OFFENSE

Getting more traffic in front will be the Flyers’ goal against Nashville, an offense-challenged team that features Rinne, all-star defenseman Shea Weber, owner of a 100-plus m.p.h. slap shot, and defenseman Ryan Suter.

Rinne, a Finland native who has a 17-13-4 record, has allowed two goals or fewer in 11 of his last 13 games.

The Predators will face a Flyers power play that went 0 for 4 on Tuesday and has scored in just four of their last 14 games.

Nashville (27-17-7) has the league’s third-best penalty-killing unit, with an 85.6 percent success rate.
