Hibs also secured an important three points on Saturday, winning 2-0 at Dundee United and narrowing the gap between themselves and third-placed Aberdeen.
The Buddies were already the only domestic side to defeat Rangers this season, knocking them out of the League Cup earlier in the campaign, but on Saturday they also beat Celtic 2-1.
The win followed on from last week's 5-1 destruction of Dundee United at Tannadice, and Goodwin's team have shown no ill effects from their recent defeat to Livingston in the semi-final of the League Cup.
Goodwin felt that his players deserved enormous credit for their display at Parkhead, hailing their work rate and effort in particular.
Hibernian boss Jack Ross will be returning to Paisley to face his former club with his team in better spirits than they have been for some time.
Ross hailed the Hibs players for doing the ugly part of the game well in their win over Dundee United, only their second victory in eight games.
With Aberdeen facing Livingston again on Tuesday evening, Hibs have the opportunity to put further pressure on their rivals with a win in Paisley.

Jim Goodwin shook up his St Mirren lineup for the trip to Celtic, changing his formation to a 3-5-1-1 from the usual 4-5-1 shape.
Millwall are reportedly interested in Porteous, with Stoke City defender Liam Lindsay lined up as a possible replacement, while Birmingham City are keeping tabs on Nisbet.
St Mirren possible starting lineup:
Alnwick; Fraser, McCarthy, Shaughnessy; Connolly, MacPherson, Erhahon, McGrath, Durmus; McAllister; Brophy
Hibernian possible starting lineup:
Marciano; McGinn, McGregor, Hanlon; Cadden, Gogic, Irvine, Doig; Murphy; Doidge, Boyle
We say: St Mirren 1-1 Hibernian
We suspect that St Mirren's run of victories may come to an end on Tuesday in Paisley, and we predict that this game will end in a hard-fought draw.
Both sides enjoyed good results at the weekend, but we suspect that they will cancel each other out at the SMiSA Stadium.
