  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Stops 24 in win

    Saros stopped 24 of 25 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 victory over the Senators.

    Drake Batherson's power-play goal late in the first period was the lone mark against Saros, as the 28-year-old netminder picked up a fourth straight win. He's allowed just six goals on 115 shots in that span, holding opponents to two goals or fewer in each outing. Saros improves to 24-21-2 on the season with a .905 save percentage and a 2.91 GAA. He'll likely be back between the pipes Thursday when the Predators host Minnesota.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Holds off Sharks

    Saros stopped 23 of 25 shots in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Sharks.

    Saros was sharp over the first two periods, and the Predators had enough of a lead to weather the Sharks' pair of goals in the third. This was his third win in a row, and he's allowed just five goals on 90 shots in that span. Saros struggled earlier in February, but he appears to be back on track. The 28-year-old is up to 23-21-2 with a 2.95 GAA and a .904 save percentage through 46 outings this season. He'll likely get rest Sunday when the Predators wrap up their road trip in Anaheim -- look for Kevin Lankinen to get that start.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Bounces back against Blues

    Saros stopped 35 of 37 shots in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Blues.

    Saros got the hook Thursday against Dallas after giving up four goals on 18 shots in the first period, but he made up for it today. The Blues consistently peppered him with shots, including 16 in the second period, but they could only get two goals past him. Jordan Kyrou snuck a snap shot into the back of the net on the power play late in the first period, and Nathan Walker deflected a shot for a goal in the third period to make the game 4-2. Ryan O'Reilly finished the game off with an empty-netter.The 28-year-old netminder finished with a .946 save percentage and has a 3.02 GAA on the season.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Gets pulled

    Saros stopped 18 of 23 shots in Thursday's 9-2 loss to the Stars.

    Saros gave up four goals in the first period and the Stars outshot the Predators 18-1 before the frame was complete. Sam Steel scored 35 seconds after the opening faceoff on the first shot of the game and Dallas continued to pepper Saros with three more even-strength goals. He was mercifully relieved of his duties to start the second period by Scott Wedgewood, who finished the game. The 28-year-old Saros ended up with a .778 save percentage in his short stint and only has five wins in all of January and February combined. It will be hard to trust him as a starting goalie in the near future for fantasy managers.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Kept busy in loss

    Saros stopped 43 of 46 shots in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Devils. The fourth goal was an empty-netter.

    Saros' 43 saves were by far a season high, but the Devils' relentless attack proved too much. The 28-year-old has gone 5-7-1 over 13 games since the start of January, a mediocre stretch that has the Predators just treading water in the wild-card race. Saros is down to 20-20-2 with a 2.97 GAA and a .903 save percentage through 42 starts. Only Saros and Petr Mrazek have at least 20 losses among goalies with 30 appearances so far this season.
