Goaltender Pekka Rinne gets start for Predators in Game 3 of Final

Goaltender Pekka Rinne gets start for Predators in Game 3 of Final

Nashville defenseman P.K. Subban is confident that victory will be on the menu Saturday, providing what is tantamount to a guarantee as well as bulletin-board material for his opponent. His slap shot from the right faceoff circle beat Matt Murray for his sixth goal of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, most among National Hockey League defensemen. People wanted to talk about Peks [Rinne], but we didn't play well enough in front of him.

Game Four is in Nashville on Monday. They've allowed 64 shots and taken 39 and been out-attempted 86-57 at 5-on-5 and are 1 of 10 on the power play. Laviolette benched him in the third period of Game 2 when Rinne gave up three goals in the first 3:28 of a 4-1 loss. Frederick Gaudreau skated into the high slot with no opposition and pumped a wrister by Murray for his second playoff goal.

James Neal made it 3-1 with 23 seconds remaining. Murray robbed Neal on a 3-on-1 rush early in the period. He also led the team with six shots on net.

All kinds of country music celebrities and actress Nicole Kidman are regulars at Predators game here.

Even though the Penguins lead the series, there's legitimate cause for long-term concern.

So, yeah. The Penguins lead the series 2-0.

LeBron James Tops NBA's All-Time Playoff Scoring List, Cavs Beat Celtics
The NBA and NHL finals were set Thursday night after the defending champions from both leagues advanced to the championship round. But they displayed their superiority over the final two games to wrap up the series . "It's been a high-scoring year throughout".


That sounds silly to say considering the Pens have outscored the Predators 9-4 through two games. It comes from the players in the room who believe we can win a hockey game when we need to win a hockey game. He has totaled 14 points through 19 playoff games so far. He has faced only 38 shots and has a save percentage of.778.

Evgeni Malkin paces the Penguins with 26 points, followed by Sidney Crosby with 22 and Phil Kessel with 20. Rinne let in the night's second shot - a rebound goal scored by the incredible rookie, Jake Guentzel, his 13th of the post-season. Pittsburgh hasn't scored yet during 5-on-4 opportunities.

Two franchise standard-bearers came up big in Game 3. Along with one stuffed penguin. Because the game was in Nashville, of course a few catfish were tossed onto the ice, as is tradition.

Hagelin, who missed more than a month with a lower-body injury before making his playoff debut in the second round, had been a healthy scratch. He was hardly noticeable playing on the fourth line and getting little ice. A team that totally got outplayed in the first period capitalizing on a power play and then taking advantage of a goalie letting in pillow-soft goals? Parenteau has a history of being a good producer of secondary offense and with the Penguins not posing much of a physical challenge in this series, McLeod's toughness is not really necessary. "Probably of the scoring chances we gave up in (Game 2), 50 percent of them started off of faceoffs - that's a guesstimation on my part. That's one game now - and we're going to move forward". Pekka Rinne was pulled late in the game, but will still be in net for tonight.

Predators coach Peter Laviolette was noncommittal about his goalie choice as he typically is with lineup decisions.
