Penguins beat Predators 4-1, take 2-0 lead

Penguins beat Predators 4-1, take 2-0 lead

Nashville must show the Penguins why they have been 7-1 at home through these playoffs by getting off to a quick start and having their fan base behind them.

The 23-year-old Aberg beat Pittsburgh defenseman Olli Maatta to a puck in the Penguins zone, passed it through Maatta to himself and then patiently drew Murray out of the net before flipping it by the sprawled goaltender.

Nashville Predators goalie Pekka Rinne (35) looks back to find a shot by Pittsburgh Penguins' Jake Guentzel in the goal during the third period of Game 2 of the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Final, Wednesday, May 31, 2017, in Pittsburgh.

Jake Guentzel led the rally with the second of his two goals, Evgeni Malkin and Scott Wilson also finding the back of the net.

Could have been worse: Patric Hornqvist appeared to score the Penguins' fourth goal of the third period, but it was nullified by an offside call on a coach's challenge by Nashville's Pater Laviolette. The rest, they say, is history, as the Penguins turned on the heat and snuck another two goals behind Rinne in a matter of moments.

The Penguins hold a 2-0 lead over the Predators in the championship series, with Games 3 and 4 scheduled for Saturday and Monday in Nashville.

"A lot of stuff out there is out of your control so I just try not to worry about anything that I can't control and just worry about doing my job and trying to give the team the best chance to win", Murray said after Wednesday's 37-save performance.

Coach Peter Laviolette pulled him after the Pittsburgh Penguins scored three goals in the first 3:28 of the third period and broke open what had been a close, tense affair. The puck trickled under goaltender Pekka Rinne's pads at 3:13 to make it 3-1.

Guentzel struck again 10 seconds into the third period to put Pittsburgh in front for good.

A decision on fines would come sometime after that. "I'm pretty eager to wrap this us", Commissioner Julie Fedorchak said. Regulators decided during a Wednesday meeting to hold hearings in either July or August.

Gov. Scott, legislative leaders to make announcement
But Scott didn't include marijuana in his call for the Legislature to come back to town. This would amount to an additional $215 million for those in K-12 programs.

If you're injured, for instance, well, you're injured. "Then he was running around like a rabbit in the fifth set", Lokoli said. Serving aces. "I thought it would be tough". "It was obviously a pretty entertaining match".

Just 15 seconds later, Malkin scored off a two-on-one, firing a ideal shot over Rinne's glove for a 4-1 lead.

The teams traded goals and dirty hits in the first period, with Matt Irwin beginning the festivities by boarding Cullen at 5:18. There's no frustration. We're learning. we're going to learn from those two games.

Rinne doesn't want to have any carryover from the two losses. As of Thursday afternoon, tickets for Saturday's Game 3 are listed as high as $3,679 on Vivid Seats.

Proving again that the quality of their shots on goal matters more than the quantity, the Pittsburgh Penguins flattened the Nashville Predators in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final by capitalizing on their prime scoring chances.

Guentzel for MVP? With an NHL-leading 12 goals in the playoffs, rookie Guentzel is making his case. He has found his touch at the right time for Pittsburgh, which leads the Final 1-0.

The game was tied at 1 at the start of the third period when Guentzel jumped on a rebound to put Pittsburgh ahead.

A style that now has the Penguins two victories away from the cusp of a dynasty.

His goal and point (19) totals are the most ever for an American-born rookie. "You feel like the Pittsburgh Penguins, they have his number".

So let's assume the Pittsburgh Penguins win two more games before the Nashville Predators win four and they capture their fifth Stanley Cup in franchise history. He approached me after the whistle, and I'm upset and I come to him and Subban come to me. Pekka Rinne has given up 36 goals on 510 shots faced. In Game 1 he was beaten clean by Malkin on a power play, had no chance on a Conor Sheary goal, sent what should have been an easy rebound into a teammate's leg for the third goal, and was beaten clean by Jake Guentzel for the victor. Matt Murray has been strong in goal for the Penguins.
