Nashville Predators vs. Pittsburgh Penguins 3/31/16 NHL Picks & Predictions

The Nashville Predators and a suddenly cold Pekka Rinne will visit the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight at 7:00PM ET looking to put an end to a two-game skid.

Bet Tonight's Predators vs. Penguins Game

After winning five consecutive starts, Rinne has lost back-to-back games in off performances. First he was pulled after making only seven saves on 10 shots in a 4-3 loss to visiting Colorado on Monday and then allowed three goals on 23 shots in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to Dallas. Granted, two of the Stars' goals were scored into an empty net but Rinne is clearly off his game right now.

On the other side is Marc-Andrew Fleury, who stopped 25 of 27 shots in the Pens' 3-2 overtime win on Sunday over the Rangers. He currently owns a 34-17-6 record with a 2.29 goals-against-average and a .921 save percentage in 2015-16. Fleury has allowed only four goals in his last two starts, both victories.
