He certainly helped do that the last time he faced the Anaheim Ducks.
Rinne will try for his 100th regular-season victory when the Predators and visiting Ducks meet for the first time since last season's playoffs.
Nashville won a postseason series for the first time by beating Anaheim in six games. Rinne, a Vezina Trophy finalist, posted a lackluster 3.29 goals-against average in the series, although his 25-save performance helped the Predators register a 4-2 victory in Game 6 at home.
Rinne is 6-2-2 with a 2.15 GAA in eight career regular-season starts against Anaheim. This will likely be his only chance to reach the 100-win milestone at home since the Predators (4-4-1) have a five-game trip after this contest.
"It's a big one for us," Rinne said. "Saturday is our next challenge."
Nashville won for the first time in four home games, 5-3 over Tampa Bay on Thursday. Rinne, who has started all nine games, made 29 saves.
Mike Fisher scored two goals and added an assist in his second game since returning after missing the first seven due to offseason shoulder surgery. Fisher had six points in the Anaheim series.
"It definitely feels good," Fisher said. "I've been out for a long time, but fortunately I have been able to skate a lot and get my legs going. I've been the recipient of some great plays too and that helps a lot."
Kostitsyn was hit by Tampa Bay's Brett Connolly on Thursday and went into the corner boards awkwardly with his left leg twisting as he fell. He did not return to the game, but coach Barry Trotz was optimistic that the winger would be available Saturday.
Erat could return after missing the last eight games with an upper-body injury. His 2011 postseason ended early when he was knocked out of Game 4 by former Anaheim winger Jarkko Ruutu.
