The Penguins, looking to repeat as Cup champion, and the Predators, in the Cup Final for the first time, are tied at two games apiece with the home team winning each time.

Nashville head coach Peter Laviolette met the media after the game and said his team didn't play well but left little doubt that the Preds will be prepared for Game 6. Pittsburgh Penguins' Olli Maatta grabs his nose after being hit there by a Nashville Predators' stick during the third period in Game 5 of the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Final, Thursday, June 8, 2017, in Pittsburgh. After the third goal went by him to end the period, his night was over after allowing three goals on nine shots. If the Penguins can break the pattern of home teams having won each game, they'll take it back to Pittsburgh as the first team to win back-to-back championships since the 1998 Detroit Red Wings. Our guys have a tremendous amount of confidence him. "We just have to do a better job in front of him".

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. "So we understand how difficult this game is going to be and how hard that we're going to have to play and how prepared we're going to have to be ultimately to have success".

There, want a rooting interest not involved in anti-something-or-other, pick a justification above and get ready for game six Sunday.

The Stanley Cup will be in Nashville on Sunday, but it won't be prepped for the Predators.

Crosby, who finished the game with three assists, said it was accident after the game.

Finally, the game was won by the Penguins due to Evgeni Malkin's goal.

On his first shift after the penalty, Crosby set up Conor Sheary for the fourth Penguins goal and his second assist of the night. "He made some key saves at key times". "It's a big game, we came here with the mission to win the game and we didn't have the start or the game we wanted to. It's world-class players. We can't shut them down game after game".

It was a familiar showing for Rinne. Defensively, the Pittsburgh Penguins are allowing 2.8 goals per game and are killing 79.8 percent of their power play chances.


It was the first of two penalties called against Subban in Game 5.

Question 1: Would you like to see the Chicago Blackhawks stay in house or go to free agency/trading for their next backup goaltender and why?

This was hardly the dine-and-dash assault levied by the Penguins in Games 1-2, when they twice blitzed their visitors for three goals in four-minute spans, but something more sustainable, fiercer. "We just lost the game by a big score, so we've got to be better".

The Penguins held a 3-0 lead following the first period of play. Perhaps more prominently, it centers on Malkin, who has 26 points in the postseason but only two in his past five games and none since Game 2 of the Final.

Barkley said the National Hockey League playoffs were more entertaining than the NBA's, and ratings are up considerably from a year ago when the Penguins beat the San Jose Sharks in six games.

Justin Schultz opened the scoring with a power-play goal just 1:31 into the game.

When Hainsey, who waited 907 regular-season games before reaching the playoffs for the first time this season, tapped in a pass from Malkin to make it 6-0, the stage was set for the Penguins to return to familiar territory. But the Predators have been outscored by five goals on the road, where Rinne's save percentage is.905 compared to.949 at home. Even though the game was over, Kessel responded, whipping a shot past Saros for his eighth goal of the playoffs that Crosby also assisted on.

Rust's goal 6:43 into the opening period, on a great backhander into the top corner, came off a feed from Kunitz and gave Pittsburgh an early two-goal cushion. Suban has been in 23 fights, posting a recorded four wins.
