The Penguins have outscored the Nashville Predators 15-4 in the three games at PPG Paints Arena, and a 6-0 pasting on Thursday night has them on the verge of claiming their second straight Stanley Cup. "The three-time Vezina Trophy finalist has yielded at least four goals in each contest en route to losing all five of his career decisions in the Steel City, including eight tallies on 36 shots collectively in Games 1 and 2.The Penguins" power play had been 1-for-16 in the series and 0-for-13 over the previous three games. Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel all put up at least two points each in that game. The Predators have to win this next one, or they're done. Crosby had his back to Sheary when he made the flawless feed, so it was the kind of play no team could possibly plan for.
Subban drew laughs when he attributed a Game 3 run-in with Crosby to a discussion about Subban's bad breath.
The defending Cup champions looked worn down, were suffering from too many injuries and would not hold up over another grueling two months of hockey was the reasoning of both players.
"Right now our backs are against the wall, and this is our opportunity and I think you try to do anything in your power and prepare the best you can for this one", Rinne said.
In doing so though, Crosby drove Subban's head into the ice several times with his right glove. I don't know what he was trying to do. "I'm not sure. I disagree with the call". The score had been predicted by Malkin and it came just seconds after Crosby threw a water bottle onto the ice as the play went by Pittsburgh's bench, a move he told referees was unintentional.
Crosby and Nashville's P.K. Subban got in a tangle on the ice behind the Penguins net late in the first, with Crosby bouncing Subban's helmeted head off the ice.
"We can't keep those in stock", Wallace said. It wouldn't make sense to switch to Marc-Andre Fleury, who hasn't played since May 17.So the Predators limp back to Nashville for Game 6, facing elimination.
"I watch all the games in my living room and move around the furniture in a certain way", Stark said. "Not that I will". Rinne stopped 50 of 52 shots he faced back home in Games 3 and 4. Then Johansen went down in the Western Conference Final, making Mike Fisher the Predators' top center.
Combined, all of this - the home-road thing, the hook in Game 5, the Bridgestone effect - makes for a fascinating situation heading into Sunday's tilt.
A pair of Game 7 wins highlighted this run.
He has a 9-1 record this spring with a 1.44 goals-against average and.949 save percentage in Nashville. We have all the confidence in him. Pittsburgh also played home for one of Trail's best sporting exports, Jason Bay, launching him into a once unlikely career in the major leagues after most teams had passed him by.
Before the first puck even dropped on the postseason, Pittsburgh learned it would be without star defenseman Kris Letang until next season because of a herniated disc in his neck. Nashville had never trailed in a series before the Final.
If Laviolette is looking for solace, here are two nuggets.
And yet, Josi, who has been Nashville's best defencemen in the playoffs, was not prepared to take a bow for his efforts. "He's pretty inspirational when he plays that way and he gets to a level that not many guys can get to".
