Pekka Rinne was unstoppable between the pipes during the Nashville Predators 4-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins Monday night. The win evened the series at two games apiece and the series is now a best of three. Perhaps no other save was as big as the crawling save he had which occurred in the second period. But it wasn’t just the save itself that was epic, it was the way it was called by Finnish announcer Antti Makinen. 

 

Rinne made a grand total of 23 saves. Game 5 will be in Pittsburgh on Thursday night.

About Michael Marzzacco

Michael is an avid DC sports fan with a passion for writing. He has followed the Washington Capitals since the 2003-04 season, around the time his enthusiasm for DC teams really began. It was from the days when they had the worst record in the league to when they became the most exciting team in the area. His Dad took him to his first Caps game a couple of years later. One of his favorite memories was being in the stands during the 2015 Winter Classic where Troy Brouwer scored the game-winning goal with 12 seconds left. Michael graduated from Radford University in May 2016, earning a degree in journalism and focusing on sports journalism and broadcasting. His goal is to work in sports media in Washington, D.C.
