08:23 AM ET 02.12 | Predators goalie Pekka Rinne, on the heels of a Saturday night off, returned to the crease in the second night of a back-to-back to close out the weekend. The Predators were on the ice Sunday for the third time in four days, but it was only Rinne's second because backup Chris Mason was in net Saturday night. But even a rested Rinne couldn't help the Predators make up for a lack of offense in a 3-0 loss to Chicago. The Predators also were shut out Jan. 24 against St. Louis (3-0) and Jan. 28 against Phoenix (4-0). "This is the third time in 11 games now that we got shut out," said Rinne, who stopped all but three of Chicago's 27 shots. "I mean, it's tough to win when you don't score goals."

Men have had frustrated Pekkas since time began.

A frustrated Pekka is better than an irritated Pekka

Unfortunately you have to live with the Pekka you were born with

Saw this on a billboard outside of the Bridgestone Center.

True Story.

Please see comment #4.

I'm always reading about players getting extentions.

I would be more worried about the products in comment #4 making a Pekka fall off then getting any extension

Easy to cure the first one. A bit more difficult to deal with the second.

Sometimes, you just have to find a Suter that doesn't judge your Pekka.

LOL - Nice.

I responded to the second part

"Wait, there's more! If you call now, we will send you DOUBLE your offer"

Taking 2 at once doubled the effect..........

And if it lasts more than four hours just put a pill in your shoe. It'll make you limp.

Without a doubt the best thread so far this year. Maybe the last 2 or 3 years! But, I haven't seen the 800 number yet?

Or you can do Pekka pushups?

A bit of selfishness has infiltrated the thread.
