Nashville Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne, who was announced yesterday to be day-to-day with a lower-body injury, returned to the team's practice in Ottawa on Wednesday afternoon.
The NHL's Third Star of the Week missed Monday's practice and Tuesday's contest versus the Maple Leafs, but was back in the crease at the Bell Sensplex today. Marek Mazanec was the other goalie on the ice for Nashville on Wednesday.
"It was good [to have him back on the ice]. I think he's feeling better, and it's good to have him out there," Mike Fisher said of Pekka Rinne. "He brings the level of practice up with the way he works. It's always good to have him back. He's been unbelievable this year."
