Nashville Predators goaltender Juuse Saros will sit out his club’s final two regular-season contests due to a lower-body injury, the team announced Wednesday.

Saros was hurt late in Nashville’s 5-4 overtime loss to the Calgary Flames on Tuesday. He left the contest with just over six minutes remaining in regulation and didn’t return. Former Flames netminder David Rittich entered the game in relief of Saros and will likely continue filling in while he’s out.

The Predators would play Calgary in the first round if the playoffs began Wednesday.

Saros, who turned 27 last week, is 38-25-3 with a .918 save percentage across 67 games this season.
