In this Stanley Cup Final, Pekka Rinne has had to fish roughly one of every four pucks he's faced in Pittsburgh out of his net: 11 goals on 45 shots.
In this Game 5, that ratio was reduced to one in three pucks: 3 goals on 9 shots.
So it makes perfect sense, in that isolated context, that Peter Laviolette pulled his franchise goaltender after a mere period of the Penguins' eventual 6-0 pounding of his Predators. He couldn't have liked any of what he was seeing, and he couldn't have hurt anything by making a change.
Well, not necessarily, at least not from this view.
