Pekka Rinne's Describes his Save of the Game in 4-2 Preds Win over Flyers

Early in the third period with the Nashville Predators leading 2-1, Pekka Rinne made a double save on a two on one breakaway that could have been a turning point in the game had the Philadelphia Flyers been able to convert and tie the contest.

The play began when Shea Weber lost the puck in the neutral zone to Claude Giroux who took off on a breakaway with Max Talbot with Ryan Suter doing his best to stay with the pair.

Here is how Rinne described the action

"It was two on one, Giroux and Talbot. Talbot had first crack at it and Giroux had the rebound and I was able to make those saves that were key saves at the time. I got a little bit lucky there too because on the second save he happened to hit it up in the air and it hit by glove so I got a little lucky there."

The Predators left on Sunday for New York where they will play the Islanders on Monday (noon) and the Rangers Tuesday (6:30 p.m.).
