Penguins demolish Predators in Game 5 blowout win

19 Juin 2017

That deficit is no more.

Rinne denied chance after chance after Crosby's goal, many of them saves that the 6-foot-5 Finn struggled to make in Games 1 and 2 in Pittsburgh.

After going 0 for 6 on the power play in two games in Nashville, the Penguins might be able to count on a special teams boost in Game 5 at home. But we really liked the way we played in Game 1. "I think when our team plays that way, we're at our very best". "Could have had (different) results in both those games".

This playoff season Predators fans have established themselves as some of the best fans not just in the National Hockey League, but in all of pro sports.

After replacing Fleury in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Ottawa Senators, Murray won three of the next four games and had a.946 save percentage.

After back-to-back losses, Murray is 5-0 with a 1.77 goals-against average and.939 save percentage.

But even with his name twice inscribed on the Stanley Cup, Cullen put retirement on hold for at least another year, re-signing with the Pittsburgh Penguins for another shot at hockey's biggest prize. It's the playoffs. You'd expect him to say that.

They also had appeared to have figured out Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne, as they scored eight goals on 36 shots.

In the first period, the teams at intervals of a minute exchanged productive attacks - Calle Jarnkrok brought Nashville forward, but 66 seconds later, Sidney Crosby is easily sold out one-on-one with the goalkeeper. After the anthem, two catfish and one stuffed penguin hit the ice despite Nashville coach Peter Laviolette's video plea earlier Monday asking fans not to throw anything. As we all have seen, fans of both teams can get rather rambunctious. They "got to their game" (another of Sullivan's favorite mantras) repeatedly in Game 4 only to lose. In particular, the Penguins need more from Kessel, who had 10 goals and 12 assists over 24 games in the Penguins' run to the Cup in 2016 and who had seven goals and 12 assists through the first three rounds of these playoffs. But, as a pending UFA, he also now doesn't have a contract for next season, and at this juncture of his playing career, he may not get another opportunity to reach this point again. "Those are your only two choices".

LINE HISTORY: Oddsmakers opened the Penguins as -148 favorites and they have been bet up slightly to the current number of -155. Evgeni Malkin, who had gone without a shot in Game 3, had a goal and assist. P.K. Subban is so much fun it can drive Mike Milbury nuts. Does the home ice trend continue? He responded by saying that they just lost a game, and that wasn't what he was thinking about right now.

Maybe the biggest difference to the Predators though is goaltending.

Malkin was also quick to shoot down talk that the Penguins, who have played 211 games in the past two seasons, are wearing down or getting exhausted.

And then there was the prettiest play of the night: Mike Fisher's one-handed pass to spring Viktor Arvidsson for the second-period breakaway goal that increased Nashville's lead to 3-1.

The Predators captain is 37 years old, having celebrated the date two days ago with a win. But Coach Sullivan has got to make a few changes. The home team has won each of the first four games of the Cup Final. A previous version misspelled Frederick Gaudreau's first name.
