Rinne had several big saves against the Penguins, but this one could go down as one of the greatest of all-time. Check it out:

Pekka Rinne doing his best Dominik Hasek imitation to stop Crosby twice & Guentzel once in same sequence. #NSHvsPIT

Two things we don't deserve:
1. God's mercy
2. Pekka Rinne
