Pekka Rinne: Pekka Rinne allows 3 goals in OTL in Game 4

Pekka Rinne allowed three goals on 37 shots in Nashville’s 3-2 OT loss to the Anaheim Ducks in Game 4 of the Western Conference Final.
The Predators came out of the gate extremely slowly in this one, as they were out-shot 14-2 in the opening period and they went into the third period down 2-0. With his team down by two goals, Rinne made a huge pad save on Jakob Silfverberg in the third frame. The Predators responded by scoring two goals (P.K. Subban and Filip Forsberg) to force overtime. In the extra frame, Nate Thompson redirected a puck past Rinne to give Anaheim the win. The best-of-seven series is now tied at two. Game 5 will be played in Anaheim on Saturday night. Rinne will go into that game with a 10-4 record, a 1.66 goals-against-average and a .940 save percentage this postseason. Tonight’s loss also snaps Nashville’s 10-game home winning in the playoffs.
