The Nashville Predators are not off to the start they were hoping for, and the frustration of Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne is getting the best of him.

Rinne allowed somewhat of a soft goal in the first period when he was beaten on the blocker side by a long shot from Anaheim Ducks center Rickard Rakell, and his frustration seemed to boil over later in that period. 

With Anaheim Ducks winger Jakob Silfverberg in his crease and skating away, Rinne cocked his stick back in preparation to deliver a huge slash to Silfverberg. Luckily for Silfverberg he was skating just fast enough to avoid the impact of that slash, something that would have like hurt a great deal.
