Pekka Rinne stopped 38-of-41 shots-faced during Monday’s 6-3 victory over the Anaheim Ducks in game-six of the Western Conference Finals. The Nashville Predators clinched the best-of-seven-game series and advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time in franchise history.


To put things in proper perspective, at the end of three periods Anaheim had 41 shots-on-goal with three goals to show for it. Nashville, on the other hand, was credited with 18 shots-on-goal and six goals. Rinne has truly embodied his “Great Wall of Finland” moniker by improving and showing stout confidence in each round of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Nashville net-minder has been with no other team in the NHL since he was drafted by the Predators with the 258th overall pick in 2004. For the 2016-17 playoffs: Rinne holds a 12-4 record, a 1.70 goals-against-average, and a .941 save-percentage. Of 474 total shots-against, Rinne has made 446 saves, allowing a minuscule 28 goals through 16 playoff games thus far.
