  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Collects win Tuesday

    Saros allowed a goal on 18 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Canucks in Game 2.

    Saros was solid when called upon, but the Predators were also credited with 30 blocked shots to make his job easier. He's allowed four goals on 38 shots over two playoff contests so far. Saros will likely continue to see most -- if not all -- of the starts during the postseason, and he's likely to get more goal support with Thatcher Demko (undisclosed) out of action for the Canucks. Game 3 is set for Friday in Nashville.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Tending twine in Game 2

    Saros will guard the road goal versus the Canucks on Tuesday in Game 2, Zach Gilchriest of the Predators' official site reports.

    Saros will look to overcome his Game 1 loss, in which he allowed three goals on 20 shots, including a pair of tallies in a 12-second span in the third period. The 29-year-old has lost all three of his games versus the Canucks this season, allowing a total of 11 goals. His Predators teammates may find more room for offense Tuesday with Thatcher Demko (undisclosed) out and Casey DeSmith slated to start for Vancouver.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Can't hold lead in Game 1

    Saros stopped 17 of 20 shots in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Canucks in Game 1.

    Saros had a 2-1 lead to work with to begin the third period, but he gave up goals to Quinn Hughes and Dakota Joshua in a span of 12 seconds. The Predators didn't recover from that, sending Saros to his third loss in his last four outings. The 29-year-old had his worst numbers as an NHL regular with a 2.86 GAA and a .906 save percentage over 64 outings this season, though he still went 35-24-5. The Predators will likely roll with Saros throughout the postseason despite his lackluster play of late.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Allows four goals in loss

    Saros allowed four goals on 38 shots during Monday's 4-2 loss to Pittsburgh.

    While Saros remains one of the most respected goaltenders in the NHL, he's allowed a total 12 goals over the last three games and hasn't posted a save percentage above .895. He's helped Nashville lock in a wild card spot, but it's not an inspiring run as the playoffs loom, where the Predators will face either the Canucks or the Stars.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Starting in Pittsburgh

    Saros was the first goalie to leave the ice at morning skate, per Michelle Crechiolo of the Penguins' official site, putting him on track to protect the road goal against the Penguins on Monday.

    Saros was a little shaky in his last start Saturday against the Blue Jackets, surrendering four goals on 35 shots, but he was still able to come away with a win thanks to strong goal support from his teammates. He'll try to secure his 36th victory of the season in a road matchup with a Pittsburgh team that will undoubtedly be desperate to pick up a win in order to stay in the playoff hunt.

    Saros (rest) won't dress against the Blackhawks on Friday.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Falls in overtime

    Saros allowed four goals on 22 shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Jets.

    Winnipeg got to Saros early, scoring three times in the first period. The 28-year-old netminder would rebound to blank the Jets through the final two periods while Nashville tied the game 3-3, though he'd ultimately surrender the game-winning goal to Kyle Connor 1:52 into overtime. Saros had won seven of his previous nine starts, posting a .915 save percentage in that span. He falls to 34-23-5 with a .907 save percentage and 2.82 GAA on the season. The Preds, who clinched a playoff spot with the overtime point, are off until Friday when they'll visit Chicago.

    Saros kicked out 23 of 25 shots in a 3-2 shootout win over the Devils on Sunday.

It was Saros' seventh win in his past nine games, and he has allowed only 22 goals over that span.

Saros has won six of his last eight games and is up to 33-23-4 with a 2.82 GAA and a .908 save percentage as the only NHL goalie to play 60 games so far this season. The Predators' regulation win Thursday gave them an eight-point edge over the Blues for a playoff spot with six games to go. Saros will likely continue to see a heavy workload until that spot is clinched.

    Saros was solid in his last start, stopping 29 of 31 shots against Boston on Tuesday, but he still came away with a loss in that contest due to a complete lack of goal support from his teammates. Overall, the 28-year-old has been pretty good for Nashville this year, posting a .907 save percentage and a 32-23-4 record through 59 appearances. He will have a favorable matchup at home against the Blues, who are scoring only 2.83 goals per game this season, 26th in the NHL.

  • Predators' Juuse Saros: Hot streak reaches jarring end

    Saros allowed six goals on 27 shots in Thursday's 8-4 loss to the Coyotes.
