NEW YORK (AP) - Nashville Predators goalie Pekka Rinne is again a finalist for the NHL's Vezina Trophy.

Rinne went 43-18-8 this season for Nashville. He also was a Vezina finalist last season, finishing second to Boston's Tim Thomas.

He will be up against Henrik Lundqvist of the Rangers and Jonathan Quick of the Kings.

The winner will be announced June 20 at the league's awards ceremony in Las Vegas.

The Predators will face off against the Phoenix Coyotes in the first game of the second round of the Western Conference playoff series Friday in Phoenix.
