The situation seemed dire.
The most concerning thing is that even in the two victories in Games 1 and 2, the Penguins did not look all that great.
But instead of one person, it was five. If the Penguins win the Stanley Cup, you can hand him the Conn Smythe Trophy once again. "Then you give up the first goal". Rain kept the crowd outside from reaching the more than 50,000 who turned Saturday night for the first Stanley Cup Final game in Tennessee. "That's a little hard". While this saps some of the momentum from game to game for either team - and there was plenty for the Penguins to build off of in Game 4 despite the loss as they were able to sustain more of an attack and generate scoring chances - it does allow for better physical recovery. "I thought I was pretty good in Game 4", Murray said Wednesday. We have a lot of confidence in our home building, and we have a lot of confidence in the way we have played this year.
If it goes to seven games, the Stanley Cup final between Pittsburgh and Nashville will stretch from an opening faceoff on May 29 to a final buzzer on June 14.
It was Gaudreau's third, but biggest by far, goal of this series. After letting up three goals on nine shots in the first period, he was pulled for Juuse Saros, who started the second. The Chicago Blackhawks won three titles in a six-year span between 2010 and 2015, but could never repeat. "If they want to shoot glove (side), then I say go ahead and shoot glove". But he does believe they have an advantage with the series down to a best-of-three and two of the games of the road. Every time I was trying to get better mentally. It is business. I don't think you get to this point if you aren't (about the) business.
There is no way to know for sure which Nashville Predators player is likely to score at any given moment. Only five players were held off the scoresheet for Pittsburgh.

"Understand that we're going to play a desperate team", said Penguins captain Sidney Crosby after collecting three assists. The other one is a bit more odd and silly, however.
Television ratings on NBC have been excellent thus far, up 24 percent over previous year and spurred by the first-time appearance of the Predators and their rabid Tennessee fan base. The Penguins kept attacking, with Kessel whipping a shot past Saros for his eighth goal of the playoffs that Crosby assisted on. The Preds, who lived on the forecheck in the first four games, barely established one in Game 5.
Jake Guentzel also made some history when he picked up his 21st point of the playoffs, equalling Dino Ciccarelli and Ville Leino for the most by a rookie in a single post-season.
"A lot of times what you see up here, you're asking direct questions about the game or about a situation".
Crosby didn't score in Game 5, but he set up three goals and could have easily had assisted on three more. Fleury performed well in 15 games this postseason, posting a.924 save percentage, but he was replaced by Murray in the Eastern Conference Finals after allowing four goals in a first period to the Senators in Game 3. The teams that lost those games came back to win their next matches.
