Pekka Rinne led the Predators to a 4-1 win in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final Monday night in Smashville.
The Finnish goaltender made 23 saves on the night and none was more incredibly, insane than his stop in the second period. With the Preds holding a 2-1 lead, the Penguins came crashing to the net from various directions. Rinne made the initial stop, then sprawled out across the goal to make an all-out effort save.

The veteran goalie seems to have knocked off whatever bothered him in Pittsburgh. Rinne only gave up two goals in the two games in Nashville, after allowing eight in the two games in Pittsburgh.
The Predators have tied up the series, 2-2 with two thrilling wins in Nashville. Game 5 is Thursday night, back in Pittsburgh. Game 6 will be a return to Smashville Sunday night.
