Four of the last five days have been banner ones for goaltender Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne. On Wednesday, he picked up his second win over Detroit since Saturday. In those two games, Rinne has allowed just one goal. "They always have a dangerous power play and their power play gets them going and once we did a good job on the penalty kill, that was the key for us," Rinne said. "That's the kind of team that is going to get some chances, but, I was able to see the puck pretty well, and the guys did a really good job." Rinne stopped 34 of 35 shots on Wednesday after being pulled in Monday's 4-0 loss to Edmonton. He also was helped by a couple of Detroit near misses. Pavel Datsyuk hit the crossbar near the six-minute mark of the second period and Dan Cleary missed a wide-open net early in the third. After Cleary's miss, Rinne had a feeling that the bounces were going his way. "Yeah, for sure," Rinne said. "I try not to think about too much superstitious about things."
