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.
