Predators Sign Pekka Rinne To Two-Year Extension

It's Pekka Rinne's birthday and he's celebrating with a new deal. Rinne improved to 3-1-1 on his birthday in his career. "He has been and continues to be the backbone of this organization and this team, probably the guy who's had the biggest impact on this organization, " coach Peter Laviolette said. Rinne made a season-high 42 saves Thursday night in a 4-1 win in Tampa Bay in his return after missing five games with an injury. The Bruins went 0 of 4 with the man advantage. "Our goaltender kept us in the game".

Originally drafted in the eighth round at No. 258 overall, Rinne also is Nashville's all-time leader at goaltender with 573 games played, a.919 save percentage and 2.37 goals-against average.

His antics earned him two minutes for unsportsmanlike conduct and a 10-minute misconduct, in addition to the original high-sticking call. "So yeah it was frustrating". Rinne is one of seven goalies with three 40-win seasons and one of 18 with at least 300 wins and 50 shutouts.

Pittsburgh Steelers can place transition tag on RB Le'Veon Bell
Bell is headed for free agency this coming offseason and he is not expected to consider returning to the Steelers. Bell must report by the Tuesday of Week 11, or November 13, in order to play this season.

On Saturday, however, he and the rest of the B's were silenced in their 1-0 loss to the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena.

In seven starts this season, Rinne, who returned Thursday from a brief stint on injured reserve, ranks near the top of the National Hockey League in goals-against.

The Bruins will head back home to TD Garden on Monday, when they clash with ex-Bruin Tyler Seguin and the Dallas Stars. Predators: Start a five-game road swing at Colorado on Wednesday night.
