  • Predators' Kevin Lankinen: Sharp in Friday's win

    Lankinen made 25 saves in Friday's 5-1 win over Chicago.

    The 28-year-old netminder won his first game since March 21 and saw his shutout bid slip away late in the second period on a Philipp Kurashev power-play tally. Lankinen's 2.83 GAA and .908 save percentage on the season are solid enough for a backup, and with the Predators locked into a wild-card spot in the Western Conference, he could get the start in at least one of the team's final two regular-season games as Nashville tries to get Juuse Saros some rest ahead of the playoffs.

  • Predators' Kevin Lankinen: Gets starting nod

    Lankinen will patrol the road crease versus the Blackhawks on Friday, Predators Radio Host Max Herz reports.

    Lankinen has been decent as the Predators' No. 2 option in 2023-24, going 10-6-0 while posting a 2.93 GAA and a .905 save percentage through 22 appearances. He'll try to pick up a road win in a favorable matchup with a Chicago team that's gone 16-19-4 at home this season.

  • Predators' Kevin Lankinen: Solid in narrow loss

    Lankinen allowed a goal on 29 shots in Saturday's 2-0 loss to the Islanders. The second goal was an empty-netter.

    Lankinen put in a good effort, but he didn't get the necessary goal support to win a tight game. He's gone winless over his last three outings despite allowing only seven goals on 81 shots over that span. The 28-year-old is at 10-6-0 on the season with a 2.93 GAA and a .905 save percentage through 22 appearances. Juuse Saros is likely to start Sunday's road game versus the Devils.

  • Predators' Kevin Lankinen: Set to face Islanders

    Lankinen was the first goaltender off the ice at the morning skate, according to Stefen Rosner of NHL.com, indicating he will guard the road net Saturday versus the Islanders.

    Lankinen surrendered six goals on 41 shots in a 7-4 loss to Colorado last Saturday. In 21 appearances this season, he has a 10-5-0 record with a 3.03 GAA and a .902 save percentage. The Islanders rank 23rd in the league this campaign with 2.96 goals per contest.

  • Predators' Kevin Lankinen: Solid not good enough

    Lankinen made 35 saves Saturday in a 7-4 loss to Colorado. He allowed six goals.

    The Preds came out hard and fast, and the Avs did not. The squad forced Avs starter Alexandar Georgiev out of the game just 57 seconds into the second, and Lankinen looked incredibly confident. However, the Avs then scored the final five goals of the game. Lankinen is usually solid but doesn't get a lot of playing time behind Juuse Saros, who dominates the crease. That said, Lankinen may get another game or two before the end of the season to allow Nashville to rest Saros for Cup action.

  • Predators' Kevin Lankinen: Starting in Colorado

    Lankinen will guard the road goal Saturday versus the Avalanche, according to Zach Gilchriest of the Predators' official site.

    Lankinen has won each of his past four starts, stopping 118 of 124 shots during that span. In 20 appearances this campaign, he has earned a 10-4-0 record with a 2.85 GAA and a .906 save percentage. Colorado ranks first in the league this season with 3.70 goals per contest.

  • Predators' Kevin Lankinen: Solid in relief outing

    Lankinen stopped all 11 shots he faced in relief of Juuse Saros in Thursday's 8-4 loss to the Coyotes.

    Lankinen played the third period, and the two goals the Coyotes scored in that frame went into an empty net. The 28-year-old Lankinen won't end up with the loss from this contest -- he's won his last four decisions. He's at 10-4-0 with a 2.85 GAA and a .906 save percentage through 20 appearances this season. Those rate stats are right in line with what Saros has done, albeit Saros has played significantly more. Still, Lankinen has been a capable backup when called upon, though it's unclear how much he'll play with the Predators trying to keep pace in the playoff race.

  • Predators' Kevin Lankinen: Blanks Florida

    Lankinen made 33 saves in a 3-0 shutout victory over the Panthers on Thursday.

The 28-year-old Lankinen improves to 14-10-4 with a .904 save percentage and 2.90 GAA while backing up Juuse Saros this year.

  • Predators' Kevin Lankinen: First off the ice Thursday

    Lankinen is expected to get the road start in Florida on Thursday, Predators' beat reporter Alex Daugherty /a> reports.

    Lankinen will get his first start in five games and his second start in the Predators' last 10 contests. He has been great of late as a fill-in for Juuse Saros, winning his last three games and allowing only six goals on 91 shots. Overall, Lankinen is 9-4-0 with a 3.09 GAA and an .897 save percentage in 2023-24. The Panthers will provide a tough matchup as they are second in the Eastern Conference standings, three points behind the Bruins with two games in hand.

  • Predators' Kevin Lankinen: Sharp in win over Jackets

    Lankinen made 32 saves in Saturday's 2-1 win over Columbus.

    Alexandre Texier flipped home a rebound early in the second period, but otherwise, Lankinen had an answer for everything the Blue Jackets fired at him. The 28-year-old backup netminder has won three straight starts dating back to Feb. 20, allowing six goals on 90 shots (.933 save percentage) over that stretch to make sure the red-hot Predators don't have a letdown when Juuse Saros isn't between the pipes.

  • Predators' Kevin Lankinen: In goal Saturday

    Lankinen will guard the road net Saturday against Columbus, Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports.

  • Predators' Kevin Lankinen: Holds on for win

    Lankinen stopped 29 of 31 shots in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Ducks.

    The Ducks put in a good effort, but Lankinen was up to the challenge to earn his second win in as many starts. The 28-year-old allowed fewer than three goals for the first time in six appearances. He's now at 8-4-0 with a 3.23 GAA and an .892 save percentage over 17 appearances this season. Juuse Saros remains the Predators' starting goalie, while Lankinen's performance hasn't been strong enough to warrant anything more than a backup role.

    Lankinen will get the starting nod for Sunday's game in Anaheim.

    Lankinen's last appearance was a 23-save victory over Vegas on Feb. 20. That marked his first win since Jan. 12. Lankinen has appeared in just six games since the start of January, going 3-1-0 despite registering an .866 save percentage during that span. The 28-year-old is 7-4-0 with a lackluster 3.33 GAA and .888 save percentage this season.

  • Predators' Kevin Lankinen: Solid in win

    Lankinen allowed three goals on 26 shots in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Golden Knights.

    Lankinen faded a little bit in the third period, but he was able to protect the Predators' lead to the end. This was his first win since Jan. 12, though it was also just his third appearance in that span. The 28-year-old is now 7-4-0 with a 3.32 GAA and an .888 save percentage over 16 appearances this season. He's mainly backed up Juuse Saros, who will likely start in Los Angeles on Thursday.

  • Predators' Kevin Lankinen: Making spot start

    Lankinen will protect the road goal versus the Golden Knights on Tuesday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

    This is Lankinen's first start since Jan. 27, though he made a relief appearance versus the Stars last Thursday. The 28-year-old has struggled in limited action this season, going 6-4-0 with a 3.35 GAA and an .889 save percentage over 15 appearances. The Golden Knights have scored a modest 16 goals over their last six games and are on the second half of a back-to-back.

  • Predators' Kevin Lankinen: Thrust into duty

    Lankinen allowed five goals on 23 shots in Thursday's 9-2 loss to Dallas.

    With the Stars up 4-0 by the end of the first period, Lankinen was sent in to defend the net in replacement of starter Juuse Saros. It did not get much better for Lankinen as he allowed five goals, including two on the power play, to finish with a .783 save percentage. It did not look competitive for the Predators as they allowed three consecutive goals in under a nine minute span to finish the game. Lankinen has not started a game since Jan. 27 when he gave up four goals in a loss to the Oilers and he has not won a game since Jan. 12.

  • Predators' Kevin Lankinen: Sunk by Oilers

    Lankinen stopped 17 of 20 shots in Saturday's 4-1 loss to Edmonton.

    The Predators didn't even get onto the board until the third period, giving Lankinen little help in general, and two of the three pucks that beat him came on Oiler power plays. It was the 28-year-old netminder's first loss since Dec. 9, but it was only his fourth start since then. On the season Lankinen sports a 6-4-0 record with a 3.11 GAA and .895 save percentage as Juuse Saros' backup.
