Pekka scores a goal

The game itself wasn’t all that exciting aside from the fact that it’s always fun watching the Predators slap around the Blackhawks. They’d win this one 5-2 in John Hynes’ first win as Nashville’s head coach.

The much bigger story from this wild game is the goal from Pekka Rinne from behind his own net. He lined it up, launched it over everyone and sniped his first career goal:

The moment was a special one and will go into Predators folklore for years to come. What was really awesome about the whole thing was how Rinne’s teammates embraced him and you saw the pure joy.

This is why we’re fans and love this game.
