Crosby has no time for Subban's games in Stanley Cup Final

Crosby has no time for Subban's games in Stanley Cup Final

Today, on Nashville Predators Pride Day and Captain Mike Fisher's (aka Mr. Underwood) birthday, the Pittsburgh Penguins descend upon Bridgestone Arena once more for game 4. But it was Rinne who was the difference-maker throughout a game that could have gone either way if not for a big save at the right time.

Through three games in this best-of-seven series the star studded Predators defense has kept the Penguins stars in check. "I think they'll have a good team", said Mittelstadt, who is not anxious about the dangers of playing in Sin City. Putting Harry Zolnierczyk and PA Parenteau in the lineup increased the speed of the Predators team and proved to wear down the Penguins as the game went on, driving them to distraction and more importantly, frustration. We need to keep composure and pull out with the win.

A fan in Nashville added some flair to the tradition of throwing catfish on the ice, sending one over the glass with a bedazzled top hat and a toy penguin in its mouth Monday night.

Then again, they play for different teams. Pittsburgh has got to match the intensity of the Nashville Predators or they are going to need some help from the officials.

The 23-year-old undrafted free agent hadn't scored an National Hockey League goal before the start of the Stanley Cup Final. "There's no doubt that we believe they will continue that". The puck just crossed the goal line under the outstretched sick of Pittsburgh goalie Matt Murray before he shoved it away.

Murray was far from his usual brilliant self, allowing five goals on 33 shots faced in the loss. Rinne made 23 saves, and Nashville won. "I don't know exactly how many it will take". Now, at 2-1, the Preds look to use the home ice advantage to even things up. It became one of the reasons why the Predators were able to gain an edge against them. Roman Josi capped it with a one-timer from the right circle at 5:51, his sixth postseason marker. Bite two may come tonight... Nashville fans did their best to lift his spirits by chanting his name in pre-game warm-ups.

There's an element of luck that the Predators didn't have in the first two games. National coverage on NBC (channel 4 in NSH) gets going at 7pm as well.

The only make came when Kyrie Irving hit an off-balance 3-pointer while getting fouled as Thompson contested 10 of those 12 shots. Love had a game-high 21 rebounds and James had 15, helping Cleveland to a 59-50 advantage on the boards (15-14 offensive).

Game 5 is on Thursday.

It was rather definitive and what has to concern the Penguins is how Nashville can play an aggressive game, take penalties (even some bad ones) and the Preds penalty killing is too effective and strong and so unusual on the puck that the Pens are second guessing themselves after just one defeat in the championship round.

"I'm sure Tocchet and Mike Sullivan and the team in general wants Phil to shoot more and that's when he is most unsafe and that's when he's at his best", said Dreger. We utilize him in so many aspects of our game. They've also stuck so closely to the Penguins that Pittsburgh went 37 minutes without a shot in Game 1.
