NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Nashville Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne underwent an MRI on Thursday, and the results were improved according to general manager David Poile.
Rinne will continue limited physical activity for the next two weeks and, if all goes well, will be able to advance to more strenuous conditioning later in December.
''In a nutshell, the doctor is happy with the progress,'' Poile said. ''What he is recommending is two more weeks basically of rehab if you will. December 20th is sort of a target date to hopefully get him into more strenuous activity leading back to playing.''
