Penguins regroup, Predators look for road magic in Game 5

Game 6 watch party sold out; Penguins to add outdoor big screen

Pekka Rinne's game seemed to be in tatters and the Penguins fan base was musing whether it preferred a clean sweep or just a split of the two games in Nashville so the defending champions could raise the Cup on home ice.

PLUS Defenseman Ron Hainsey had one of his finest outings of the playoffs during Game 5, scoring a goal and adding an assist.

All the good mojo Rinne generated while helping Nashville rally to tie the series at 2 vanished in a span of 20 minutes. "They capitalized. We did a better job of managing the game that way in Games 3 and 4". It could be that he is a 22 year old rookie that everyone failed to scout or take seriously. That shift led to a Predators' penalty and the game's first goal on Pittsburgh's ensuing power play, as Schultz beat Rinne with a point shot that went between his pads. Maybe the one about a minute later when Rinne denied Chris Kunitz on a breakaway?

Sullivan understands it's easy to look at the result and be discouraged.

Nashville center Colin Wilson, who has an undisclosed injury, could make his Final debut, as there is a chance to be cleared to play.

It was as if after watching the Predators for four games, the Penguins were finally able to finally figure out their opponent's weak spot. They "got to their game" (another of Sullivan's favorite mantras) repeatedly in Game 4 only to lose. "They've had some high-quality chances, and the puck hasn't gone in the net for the last couple of games".

Marshawn Lynch: Oakland Raiders move to Las Vegas prompted my comeback
Prior to that he was one of the game's top running backs with more than 1,200 yards rushing in each of the previous four seasons. Marshawn Lynch reiterated that he was retired about a thousand times for the year that he actually was.

Kessel has scored more goals on a per-game basis in the playoffs (0.43 for his career) than any current player not named Alex Ovechkin or Jarome Iginla (minimum 50 games).

No matter how the ice has tilted one way or another, this Final has earned some extra attention for the Nashville hockey effect with catfish and country music artists, from surprise anthem singers to Carrie Underwood, the wife of Predators captain Mike Fisher.

He started the first 15 games of the playoffs for the Penguins, with 9 wins, two shutouts and a.924 save percentage.

"I think we're just moving our feet", Crosby told reporters.

Something the Penguins did more than anybody during the regular season when it led the National Hockey League in scoring. The Penguins aren't as deep defensively as the Predators, allowing 2.21 goals per game in the playoffs, but D Justin Schultz has provided a boost since getting healthy. I'm tempted to side with the Penguins to close this out because they are a veteran team that's won big games on the road and the last thing they want is a game seven for the cup where anything can happen.

Not when the Predators have been almost invincible there during these playoffs.

Neither Dumoulin nor Hainsey provide much offense, as the two combined for four goals and 32 points during the regular season.

Two US intel chiefs say were never pressured by White House
Both Rogers and Coats were uneasy about the request, given that the FBI is conducting an investigation about the matter. The only thing they would say is that they never felt pressured to intervene in the Russian Federation investigation.

Picking a Winner - Predators or Penguins?

"Yeah, I don't think we really look at the big picture too much. Could have had results in both those games".

Although the Penguins' 9-3 record at PPG Paints Arena this spring isn't quite the equal of Nashville's 9-1 mark at Bridgestone Arena, it reflects the high level at which they routinely perform there.

Shooooooooooooooot! Pekka Rinne appears to be back in full form, so to win the Penguins must get shots to the net. Though that style also generated opportunities for the Predators at the other end, don't expect Pittsburgh to try and rein it in.

So do the Predators, who can't get back to Smashville fast enough.

"This is obviously the main goal at the start of the season [for all 30 teams]", forward Filip Forsberg said.

PLUS Matt Murray made 24 saves to post his third career playoff shutout on Thursday and joined an exclusive club in the process.
