NASHVILLE — Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne has been cleared by doctors to increase his physical activity, and now Nashville has to decide whats next for the two-time Vezina Trophy finalist. Eduardo Jersey . The Predators announced that Rinne had been cleared for the next step of his recovery after meeting with doctors earlier Monday. Coach Barry Trotz said a meeting was planned for later Monday to set a weekly plan for Rinne. Our destination is to get Pekka back in the net at some point, Trotz said. Whenever that happens, that happens. It feels a lot better than it was a month ago or six weeks ago. The goalie has been sidelined since arthroscopic surgery on his left hip Oct. 24 as a result of a bacterial infection. The infection developed in the same hip surgically repaired May 9 after last season.

Rinne started practicing Feb. 19 and has worked a bit more each day. Rinne is 4-4-1 in the nine games he has played this season with a 2.31 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage. He practiced again Monday said he feels really optimistic. The next step is playing games, and hopefully that is really soon here, Rinne said. The Predators, who return from the Olympic break hosting Tampa Bay on Thursday, could have Rinne play some games soon in Milwaukee with their American Hockey League affiliate. Nashville is four points out of the Western Conferences final playoff spot with 23 games remaining. General manager David Poile said last week the Predators best move at the trade deadline could be getting Rinne back on the ice. Adrien Silva Jersey .

Highlights from Scotland’s Group F World Cup qualifier against Slovakia One-hundred per cent we can go to Wembley and win. England might not like it but of course we can do it, he said after the Slovakia defeat.Theyve scored a last ditch winner against 10-man Slovakia, theyve not won tonight and theyve scored two against Malta. England are the best side in the group in my opinion but theyre not firing. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. Theyve got managerial problems. The selection problems might just have a little negative influence in the campp so we go there, yes low on confidence. Joao Mario Jersey. We can go to Wembley and we can win that game of football without a doubt but we have to play at a top level.Cut out silly mistakes, be absolutely on the money with selection as well and that is a decision Gordon will have until that game comes along. Slovakias Jan Durica and Scotlands Steven Fletcher battle for the ball during the game in Trnava Three points against England would see Scotland on level points with their home nations rivals, and McCann believes Strachans men can get themselves back in contention for World Cup qualification.If we go to Wembley and win that game, were right in it again.

Russell Martin says Scotlands 3-0 defeat to Slovakia is tough to take If you continue to stumble, not scoring goals, conceding poor goals, not quite getting things moving the way you want to go then youll continue to stumble and drop silly points.Were lucky were still in it tonight because if England had beaten Slovenia, then forget winning the group. I still think its a big ask because England in my opinion are absolute favourites, but you go to Wembley, you do take three points then its game on again.
