"I obviously understand that it might be a once-in-a-lifetime thing," a smiling Rinne said, "so I really enjoyed it. It was an awesome feeling seeing that puck go in."

Nashville had a 4-2 lead when Rinne fired the puck into the air from behind his own net. It landed inside Chicago's blue line and slid into the goal before Blackhawks forward

 celebrating.

 

"It was pretty cool," said Rinne, who had 29 saves and recorded his 14th career point with the goal. "I just threw my hands up in the air and tried to act as cool as I can."

 

Rinne is the first goalie to score a goal since

 did it three times, and Ron Hextall scored on two occasions.

 

Rinne's goal also had a sports betting impact; the over/under for the game was 6.5 at Caesars Sportsbook.

I saw both of Hextall's.   The first ever direct shot, and the first ever in the playoffs.    It's really kind of cool to see it.   Both sets of announcers were clearly thrilled to witness it.

Agree. It is kind of cool to see it from the different views : from the side, the back, the top. Rinne chose a nice puck trajectory, which was difficult to reach to other players as well as he put a good effort for a puck's speed too.  It seems first NHL goalie's goal since 2013, and, maybe, it could be a goal of the year.

Oh you think that is hard? I just watched the Wings win two consecutive games for the first time in over a month and are still 13 points behind the next worst team in hockey. THAT is difficult,lol. 

 

  No seriously kudos to Rinne it looked like he lined it up like he has done it a million times before. Always said he has the best glove in the game, looks like he has the stick to match.
