Saturday's Dump & Chase: Pekka Rinne Plays First Game, Moves Closer to Return

New, comments

There are tons of recaps out there (from our good friends in Milwaukee, as well as from a few local sources, here, here, and here), but the important thing to know is that Pekka actually played, in a real live game, and played well. He didn't get a ton of action, but stopped 16 of the 17 shots he faced in a 9-1 Admirals win. He's set to start again Sunday, then who knows? As someone with tickets to the Penguins game on Tuesday, I'd love to see him come back then, but the important thing is that his recovery continues at a pace that allows him to remain healthy. As we've all seen, an injured Pekka is very, very bad for this team.
