Video: Rinne reaches back, makes diving stick save after strange bounce

With the Predators on the power play, the puck takes a crazy bounce on a a clearing attempt by the Blackhawks and Pekka Rinne shows incredible awareness to keep the puck out of the net.

The Chicago Blackhawks almost had their first goal of this first round series with Nashville -- on a short-handed clearing attempt from their own end.

After being fired the length of the ice on a Chicago penalty kill, the puck took a crazy bounce off the glass as it entered the Nashville zone. It was heading straight for the open net, when Pekka Rinne -- who had gone behind his net to play the puck -- reached back in desperation to knock the puck just enough off course with his stick.
