Preds even Stanley Cup Final at 2-2

Truth be told, Rinne, the Predators' super hero, never lost it. Rumors of his demise and benching were largely made up by the enormous media contingent covering the Stanley Cup Final that seemingly forgot his Conn Smythe-worthy postseason after two sub-par games games to start the series in Pittsburgh. We saw huge first and third periods from the Pens in Pittsburgh, and a crucial second from the Preds Saturday night as they scored twice in 42 seconds to tie the game and ultimately take the lead.

For the contest, Nashville once again out-shot the Penguins (33-28) and had more hits (33-26) than Pittsburgh.

"Our system allows defensemen to jump on the play and make something happen in the offensive zone, too", Josi said. We've shown that's how we are going to score goals - getting pucks and people there. He also moved into 20th all-time in National Hockey League playoff points but the Predators clamped down after that. Game 6 against the Washington Capitals, Game 3 against the Ottawa Senators, and Game 3 against the Nashville Predators are a few examples. That will come in Game Six on Sunday night. Their fans will get to see them one more time.

Pittsburgh has been willing to shuffle up forward lines like insane, but they've remained faithful to the defensemen this playoff, aside from health forcing changes. "And they do a tremendous job defensively and creating offense".

Apparently, the fans didn't get the message from coach Peter Laviolette.

Jarnkrok fired the Predators into the lead in the first period, tucking away a rebound from close range. Penguins C Sidney Crosby now has 17 career points in Cup Final games, two behind franchise leader Mario Lemieux.

Murray thought he could've done better on Nashville's third goal, after Viktor Arvidsson was sprung on a breakaway by Mike Fisher's spectacular one-handed pass. It was Crosby's first Cup final goal in 13 games, and his second in 20.

"Throughout every period, there were some chances there we didn't capitalize on", said captain Sidney Crosby.

Malkin finished with two shots.

After dropping the first two games in Pittsburgh, Nashville held serve on Saturday night in Game 3, in front of a raucous home crowd which seems to have absolutely fallen in love with the team. But now, thanks to the hockey gods and the fact that the Penguins have enough talent to occasionally win when they have no business doing so, this series has become a best-of-three with the Penguins having home ice advantage. The Stanley Cup Final doesn't start until the home team loses a game, and so through four games, this series hasn't even begun.

"You've got trust what gets you here", Crosby said.

Except this time they fell to the floor.

"I enjoy it. We have a good group of kids and they don't feel like kids anymore after what they went through and what they did past year with Guentzel being the exception", Cullen said. "But it just crossed the goal line", he said.

Who do you want to win the Stanley Cup, HollywoodLifers? There's no question we have to, as the center group, be even better. They will also stream the game on mobile devices via the NBC Sports app, which can be downloaded via the Apple App Store, and the Google Play Store.

An undrafted free agent playing in only his sixth playoff game, Gaudreau was a recent call up to the Predators lineup due to injuries and with the locker room already at capacity, only has a chair and small cabinet to his name.

Following Crosby's goal, Rinne stopped Patric Hornqvist on a tight wrist shot, and with the Penguins coming hard early in the second period, he stopped Phil Kessel, Jake Guentzel and Chris Kunitz just before Frederick Gaudreau pushed one just past Matt Murray at the other end on a wraparound that gave the Predators' the lead for good.

Nashville will be leaning again on its defense corps to try to send this series back to Pittsburgh all tied up.

"That's all I wanted for my birthday", Fisher said afterward of the big win.
