Crosby scores, Malkin shoots yet Penguins lose 4-1 to Preds

08 June 2017, 01:51 | Susie Olson

The 24-year-old rookie only has a chair in the Predators' locker room, but he now is the second player in National Hockey League history to score his first three career goals in a Stanley Cup Final, joining Johnny Harms with the 1944 Blackhawks.

Predators supporters have already made news this Stanley Cup Final for their commitment to the tradition - despite Game 1 being in Pittsburgh, a dedicated fan and self-described "dumb redneck" was able to sneak a catfish onto the ice in enemy territory to start the series.

Nashville Predators center and captain Mike Fisher skates during practice Friday, June 2, 2017, in Nashville, Tenn. That changed in Game 4, when Arvidsson snapped a 15-game goalless drought in a 4-1 win against the Pittsburgh Penguins. They got more, just not almost enough against Pekka Rinne and the Nashville Predators.

Nashville rookie Frederick Gaudreau scored the game-winning goal and goalie Pekka Rinne stopped 23 shots Monday night as the Predators evened the Stanley Cup series with a 4-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Both Crosby and Evgeni Malkin were held without a shot in Game 3 - the first time that's happened to the duo in the same playoff game and for just just the fifth time in Crosby's postseason career. "The first two games, I wasn't happy with my game". It was one of four shots on goal for Crosby in the game. Maybe they'll break out Rocky Top for us one more time.

Filip Forsberg's empty-net goal at 16:37 of the third period completed the scoring. We've got good players. "If we continue to get those chances, they'll go in for us".

The seven-game series is now a best of three.

Game 5 is Thursday night in Pittsburgh.


"The games are a lot closer than the score indicates", said Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan. They got the puck everywhere it needed to go, just not in the net. "We had a number of Grade A opportunities, a couple of breakaways, flurries around the net".

The goal, which came seconds after Rinne stoned Chris Kunitz on a breakaway, initially appeared to be stopped by a stellar save from Penguins goalie Matt Murray but replays showed the puck crossed the goal line by about an inch.

His latest goal came on a solid individual effort when he stuffed home a wraparound attempt but the goal was only awarded after a random horn sounded 35 seconds later to stop play and initiate a video review.

Calle Jarnkrok scored with 5:09 left in the first period, putting the Nashville Predators ahead 1-0 against Pittsburgh. Or maybe the diving blocker stop on Guentzel just before the midway point, the one that preserved Nashville's lead on the way to a 4-1 victory?

"He's a great goaltender, so he can make those kinds of saves", Guentzel said. That's now how they got to the cusp off back-to-back titles.

Crosby said the next game is key.

"We found a different level (in Game 4)", Crosby said.
