The Nashville Predators are getting highlight-worthy goaltending — from an unlikely source.  

With Pekka Rinne still on the shelf with a hip infection, Carter Hutton has had to step up for the Preds.

Hutton was forced to make an acrobatic save against the Philadelphia Flyers after a dump-in took an errant bounce off the boards leaving him out of position after coming out to play the puck, on Thursday night.

Flyers' forward Michael Raffl tried to bury the puck into the seemingly empty net, but was left slack-jawed kneeling on the ice after being thwarted by the Predators' goaltender.  

Hutton's save preserved a second-period lead for Nashville, and they would go on to win the game over the Flyers 4-3 in a shootout.
