It's going down, they're yelling timber! 

Quoting Ke$ha makes for an easy joke, but Pekka Rinne struggled with his footing for a moment during the Predators' 4-3 loss to the St. Louis Blues on Thursday evening. 

Luckily, Rinne didn't surrender a goal in the process as he went on to stop 23 shots in his first loss in the last five games.

Rinne is still getting used to being back on skates after missing most of the 2013-2014 season due to a hip injury. It certainly doesn't help that hasn't participated in a training camp in the two past offseasons (2012-2013 lockout season and health during 2013-2014). 

Thankfully, he and the net were unharmed in the collision.
