GAME 2: Nashville Predators at Phoenix Coyotes, 5:00PM on NBCSN, TSN, RDS

SBN Sites: Five For Howling & On the Forecheck

Series Record & Storyline(s): 'Yotes 1 - Preds 0. So you're telling me that Pekka Rinne isn't infallible? In a surprising turn of events, this goaltending duel, well, wasn't. The solid Mike Smith let in three goals and Vezina-nominee Pekka Rinne let in four, including the overtime game winner by almost 40 year old (sooo old, pfft) Ray Whitney. I can't imagine that Rinne is going to have another game like that. The next surprising part of Game 1 is that the Coyotes were able to keep Shea Weber off the scoresheet, and both he and defensive partner Ryan Suter ended the game as a minus-1. Like Rinne, they likely will probably have a better game tonight.
