Predators freeze out Penguins to level Stanley Cup

The Penguins defensemen played -put nicely- terrible, in Game 4. For Game 1, Pittsburgh is a -165 moneyline favorite against the +145 underdog Predators with a 5.5-goal total.

Some thought of it as some bad luck at first, but it apparently worked out for the Penguins.

Two consecutive victories don't give coach Peter Laviolette belief that his Nashville Predators have momentum against the Pittsburgh Penguins going into Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final.

That was all for the Penguins, as Rinne denied chance after chance, many of them saves that the 6-foot-5 Finn struggled to make in Games 1 and 2 in Pittsburgh, when the Penguins averaged 4.5 goals in winning twice. It's not easy. We play against a good team.

The third period was quiet from a scoresheet perspective, but the crowd was lively as ever as their team hung on to tie up the series and create a best-of-3 going forward.

The Penguins will likely need Malkin and Kessel at their best to wrestle back control of a series that's lately gone the Predators way.

The Pittsburgh Penguins will be sticking with Matt Murray between the pipes for Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final.

The Predators have outshot the Penguins in all four games. But, just as he did during previous year playoffs, he's been leading the team, in general. The NHL said Murray and Fleury cannot be voted as a single entity for the Conn Smythe, though they could share it if the votes end up an even split.

Calle Jarnkrok, Viktor Arvidsson and Filip Forsberg also scored for Nashville, which improved to 9-1 at home and roared back after dropping the first two games of the series on the road.

It was a risky play from a player who should probably know better based on his own concussion history, however, it illustrated the kind of attitude Crosby had brought to what was a pivotal Game 5.

Sandro starred in Massimiliano Allegri's title-winning side last season as Juve also reached the Champions League final. He added: "I do not know how Alex Sandro reacted". "Players are always their own boss".


"I know people talk about how we're exhausted, but believe me, they're exhausted too", Pittsburgh forward Evgeni Malkin said.

They have a 3-2 series lead ahead of Sunday's Game 6, thanks in no small part to their trio of star players.

And the victor of game five will sit in a glorious position in what has now been reduced to a best-of-three series for Lord Stanley's Cup. "And I think everybody on our team can skate, move the puck and make plays". We know we can score more than one goal.

"I don't want to look back now, because we have more games to play, but it's a roller coaster", Rinne said of the final.

"We know we can be a lot better", Fisher said.

Penguins coach Mike Sullivan confirmed that Matt Murray would remain in goal and said that center Nick Bonino was a game-time decision.

Phil Kessel scored his eighth of the playoffs and added two assists, while Sidney Crosby tallied three assists.

On the other hand, if the Penguins win Game 5, they'll probably get the chance to win the Cup on home ice in another Game 7. The 34-year-old stopped 50-of-52 shots in Nashville's two wins, including breakaway stops of Crosby and Chris Kunitz. "I think everybody fed off that a bit as far as we were going to be aggressive and go and get it".

The defending champion Penguins are slumping after spurts of big-time offense lifted them to a 2-0 lead. "Sometimes it's trash goals, it's puck always around the net and just wait rebounds sometimes".

The Predators top-pairing defenceman, who has five goals and 13 points in the playoffs, left the ice after his second shift in the period and did not return for the rest of the game.
