It was fitting that the one goal Pekka Rinne allowed on Tuesday had to be reviewed. Jiri Hudler's deflection beat Rinne solidly and obviously, but the officials had to take one more look just to make sure the Predators goaltender, who has morphed into a stone wall the past two games, had allowed a score in Nashville's 3-1 victory in Game 4. "He's into the game and he's able to make the saves, and he seems to be on top of the game when he gets a lot of shots," defenseman Shea Weber said. Weber may be onto something. During the regular season, Rinne notched a 14-0-2 record when stopping at least 35 shots. In Games 3 and 4 of this playoff series against the Red Wings, Rinne has faced 43 and 41 shots, respectively. He stopped 81 of those 84 total attempts.
