The Stanley Cup Final has been everything we could have hoped they would be so far. After falling down 2-0 to the Penguins, the Predators have battled back and tied the series at two each last night. The game was never in doubt, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t filled with pulse-pounding drama.
The most notable moment (that didn’t involve barbaric displays of throwing fish), came on the back of the magical save by Pekka Rinne.
In one of the best sequences of the entire season, Rinne somehow keeps the puck from hitting the back of the net.
Check out the call made during the save on the Finnish broadcast of the game.

Now that’s passion!
The series has been everything we hoped the NBA Finals would have been. That is yet to materialize. Perhaps that series will follow in kind, seeing the Cavaliers take the next two games and evening the series against Golden State.
If that does happen, I hope there is a Finnish broadcaster on hand to call a LeBron James chase down block.
