In yesterday’s IWTG, we wrote the following: “Pekka Rinne was some kind of wonderful, and he kept his team in this one. He made 29 saves, most of them with a catching mitt that seemed capable of swallowing all that was and is and is to come. It quickly became apparent that Pekka Rinne’s glove was where scoring chances went to die, and people began to speculate about what other wonders might be things in Rinne’s glove.”

And speculate we did. The #ThingsinRinnesGlove hashtag, generated by @canucksean21 (after we completely missed the opportunity on our own joke), picked up some serious twaction by the end of the first period, and by this morning, it was a solid source of funnies. But, if you don’t have time to click and read through all of them, we at PITB have compiled our favourite 25 things found in the glove of Pekka Rinne.

    Went to give a funnyguy follow and his handle is actually canucksean21. One s, not two.

    Also, having been away from a computer for the game, I’d like to belatedly suggest another possible thing to be discovered in Mr. Rinne’s maddening mitt: The Northwest Passage.

      I would like to think if Rinne does indeed possess the NorthWest Passage in his mitt, he will let the Canucks pass through en route to the next round.

      Ha, that’s what gave it away? After all the obscure Biblical references in the IWTGs?
