Columbus Blue Jackets DFS Spin
Joonas Korpisalo stopped 31 of 33 shots in a 2-1 loss to Nashville Saturday afternoon. Korpisalo surrendered two goals on 13 shots in the second period. He has a 6-5-4, 3.28 GAA, and .894 save percentage in 16 contests.
Nashville Predators DFS Spin
Pekka Rinne allowed four goals on 31 shots in Thursday’s 5-2 loss to the Detroit Red Wings. If it weren’t for the Red Wings hitting three posts, this game could’ve gotten way uglier for Rinne. The Nashville goaltender has looked really good in the month of February but he’ll have a sour taste in his mouth after he let in a couple of goals that he’d probably like to have back on Thursday. Rinne owns a 5-6-0 record with a 2.52 goals-against average and a .911 save percentage on the season.
