Now Here's Something You Don't See Everyday


A sports rarity occurred in Chicago Thursday night. In Nashville's 5-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks, the Predators Pekka Rinne became just the 12th goalie in the history of the NHL to score a goal. It happened in the closing seconds as Chicago, trailing 4-2, emptied its net for an extra attacker. Rinne played the puck beside his own net, and fired it down the ice and high into the air. It carried over the defense, landed deep in the Chicago zone and carried dead center, into the net. According to the NHL, Rinne's goal is the first for a goalie since Mike Smith of Phoenix did it more than six years ago. It's just the 15th time, including the playoffs, that a goalie has scored.
