Clarksville, TN – As expected, the Fed raised short-term interest rates for the third time in 2017 (market participants were more focused on the progress of tax legislation).
The dots in the dot plot did not shift much from where they were in September and were all over the place for the end of 2018 and 2019 – meaning that there is no clear consensus on the pace of policy action (and bear in mind that personnel changes mean that many of these dots will be replaced in 2018).

Once again, Pekka Rinne stood tall for the Preds securing his third shut-out of the season. This comes on the heels of Juuse Saros’ record setting shutout on Thursday against Edmonton.
Rinne stopped all 32 shots he faced against the Flames in the 2-0 win. The shutout was the 46th of his career.
As is usual for Nashville, they have problems getting started in the first period, as Calgary outshot the Preds 12-6. Shots from TJ Brodie and Dougie Hamilton were deflected off the crossbar, something that plagued the Flames most of the night.
