Nashville Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne was yanked Wednesday after allowing four goals on eight shots in the first period of Game 4 against the Dallas Stars. The Stars went on to win 5-1, evening the series at two games apiece.

Here's a look at all four tallies that ended Rinne's night:

Juuse Saros, who posted a .915 save percentage and a 2.62 goals-against average during the regular season, replaced Rinne between the pipes.

Rinne was integral in Nashville's victory in Game 3, as the Preds held on to win 3-2 despite being outshot 42-28. He entered Game 4 with a .936 save percentage and a 1.98 goals-against average in the series.

The Jekyll and Hyde act is nothing new for Rinne in the postseason. There have been times, most notably during the 2017 Cup run, when he's been lights-out, but in other instances, such as last year's playoffs, he's struggled.
