Through two games in the Stanley Cup Final, Rinne and the Nashville Predators' first trip to the Final, Pekka has been the reason the Predators have lost two straight for the first time in this 2017 postseason. The Stanley Cup newbies were disappointed but not dismayed by their Game 1 loss, pointing to the way they carried play for long stretches as tangible proof they weren't just happy to be here. "I can't get enough", said Williams.
"But we have to do a better job of not letting them come with the pace that they want to put pucks on our net and have their [defensemen] jump into the play, and when we can do that, that's going to lean the ice back in our favor and hopefully have a better outcome when we go out for Game 3". (Apparently Nashville is to bachelorette parties what Las Vegas is to bachelor parties in this part of the world.) The entire downtown seems involved in one big Stanley Cup final party and country music star Alan Jackson is slated to perform a concert before Game 3 on Saturday.
"We're concerned about where the series is at", Predators captain Mike Fisher said. "So we're going back home". Teams that have taken a 2-0 series lead in the Stanley Cup Final have an all-time series record of 45-5.
Pittsburgh also is proof that a team can rally from an 0-2 deficit to win the Stanley Cup, doing it in 2009 to beat Detroit in seven games.
Game 3 between the Predators and the Penguins is scheduled for 7PM CT.
Returning home should provide a boost for both Rinne and the Predators. We would play until the sun went down and then we played in the house hallway until Mom or Dad said we had to go to bed. Juuse Saros made his Stanley Cup Playoff debut in relief of Rinne on Thursday and stopped the two shots he faced over the fnal 16:32.
The Penguins scored three goals in three minutes in the third period to make the score 4-1, a tough score to come back from for Nashville.
Rinne is a three-time Vezina Trophy finalist who entered the final as the hottest goaltender in the playoffs with a.947 save percentage. He worked the "starter's net" at practice, and the Predators spoke with the assumption that he'd be back in against the Penguins.

Bonino, who scored in Game 1, took the puck to the left foot or ankle and could not put weight on it as he was helped off the ice.
It hasn't been easy against Pittsburgh.
In Game 1, the Penguins pushed three goals by Rinne in a span of 4:11 in the first period to build a 3-0 lead.
That's actually a fairly good, if vague, summation of Nashville's first two games.
Rinne is now winless in five career starts at Pittsburgh and looking to change his luck in Nashville where the Predators are 7-1 in the playoffs.
After watching Game 2, a phrase that my Dad who served in the Army for 20 years used to say popped into my head: SSDD (Same.er, Stuff.Different Day). "There's things that we could've done - all three goals in the third period were odd-man rushes". Scoring fivegoals despite going nearly two full periods without a single shot on goal in Monday's series opener proved that, as did a roaring rebound from a slow start in Game 2.
But with Ryan Johansen out of the lineup, the Predators' margin for error has become razor thin in this series.
And then Crosby won the opening faceoff in the third, and Rinne sent a rebound of a Bryan Rust shot out like a pinball flipper and Guentzel buried it. Scott Wilson followed up on Guentzel's go-ahead goal 3:03 later and Evgeni Malkin added his ninth of the playoffs (and NHL-leading 26th point) 15 seconds after that.
With two goals in Game 2, rookie Jake Guentzel pushed his playoff goal scoring lead to an even dozen and continued his historic tear in his inaugural playoff showing. "It's not his fault, by any means". We moved him up with Sid.
