If you thought Nashville was excited for Pekka Rinne's amazing, sprawling save in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final, you should listen to the Finnish broadcast.

Rinne stoned Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby twice, lost his stick and then dove back to stop Jake Guentzel's rebound attempt with the glove side of his blocker.

It was a spectacular sequence that sent Predators fans at Bridgestone Arena, and the announcers from Rinne's homeland of Finland, into a frenzy.

Rinne made 23 saves in the game, a 4-1 win and the Predators tied the series 2-2.
