Video: Finnish call on Pekka Rinne’s save is astounding as save itself

Pekka Rinne stonewalls Sidney Crosby and continues his unreal sequence with a rebound stop and sprawling save across the crease to keep the Penguins at bay.

The Pekka Rinne redemption tour continued in Game 4 on Monday, and his highlight-reel save during a sequence started by Sidney Crosby might have been the stop of the Stanley Cup Final (if not the entire postseason).

Great stuff, right? As a reminder, here is that Nick Bonino-related call from last year.
