"If we continue to get those chances, they'll go in for us".Barry Melrose's take: Very similar to Game 3: The Predators got great goaltending."There's nothing more nerve-wracking than Stanley Cup overtime hockey", Barkley said. "They capitalized. We did a better job of managing the game that way in Games 3 and 4".

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.

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

Sidney Crosby scored his first goal in the Stanley Cup Final in eight years, but the Predators beat Pittsburgh 4-1 on Monday night to even the best-of-seven series at 2-2. Sullivan also said center Nick Bonino, who blocked a shot by P.K. Subban in Game 2 and missed the next two games, will be a game-time decision.

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.

With the score tied 1-1 in the second period, it was Rinne who stopped Chris Kunitz on a breakaway.

Phil Kessel came walking back inside the dressing room Wednesday in a black Pittsburgh Penguins hat, black T-shirt and a pair of black compression shorts, smiling and shaking his head and repeatedly saying, "Jenn made me, Jenn made me". Murray has posted a 5-3 mark with a 2.08 goals-against average and.925 save percentage in the past nine games after missing the first two rounds of the playoffs because of a lower-body injury, with veteran Marc-Andre Fleury recording a 9-6 mark with a 2.56 GAA and.924 save percentage. The Stanley Cup Final is down to a best-of-three, as Penguins fans freak out over everything from the goalies to the defense to a catfish being chucked onto their home ice.

The biggest factor for the Predators in game three and four was the way goaltender Pekka Rinne regained his form.

When asked if he was exhausted from going the distance in last year's post-season and playing in the World Cup of Hockey in September, Malkin shook his head.

"I don't know that we feel that we're against the ropes", Sullivan said. Kessel scored his first in six games, making it 5-0 later in the period, while Hainsey capped Pittsburgh's second three-goal period of the game. Still, it lessens the overall depth of the Pittsburgh lineup and allows the Preds two clean matchups - with Josi and Ellis guarding Crosby, who was a force in Game 4. "They capitalized on our mistakes and we have to do the same". This has allowed the Nashville Predators to even the series going into Game 5.

The Thunder Bay, Ont., native, who guided the Penguins to their fourth Stanley Cup past year, has a.925 save percentage in the playoffs. "We came here with the mission to win the game and we didn't have the start or the game we wanted".

Bonino now boasts four goals and seven points through 21 postseason games, a step back from the 18 points in 24 games that he was able to put up during the team's successful championship run in 2016.

"Yeah, I don't think we really look at the big picture too much".

Photos of a menacing dog and a chain can only go so far, though. "We're going home, we're going to be re-energized and our focus now has to be on that game and getting one win". Nashville won its two at home by a combined 9-2. "Sometimes it's trash goals, it's puck always around the net and just wait rebounds sometimes".
