Stanley Cup Final: Three keys to Game 5

13 Juin, 2017, 13:47 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

The Penguins did not relent, attempting 11 shots to the Predators' three in the first eight minutes of the game.

Six different players scored goals in the Penguins' rout of the Nashville Predators Thursday night in Pittsburgh. "We're hoping that we have our best game in front of him". "I think they understand how these series go and how, from one game to the next, we have to reset the mindset and just be ready to play that game right in front of us". Our guys have a tremendous amount of confidence in him.

"We just played simple, moved the puck up quick and our forwards did a good job of using their speed and playing down low, hanging on to pucks", Schultz said.

With the series tied at two apiece, the Pittsburgh Penguins will be looking to show dominance and take a 3-2 lead in the series. The same occured when captain Mike Fisher was held out a few games with an injury, and it came to ahead once again when Ryan Johansen had immediate surgery on his leg. Pittsburgh's one-sided win sets up the champs to repeat Sunday in Smashville. They responded with an attacking, never-stop approach that has helped Nashville go from the last team into the National Hockey League playoffs to one that is two wins from a championship.

Welcome back my Pittsburgh Penguins vs Nashville Predators fans. This has allowed the Nashville Predators to even the series going into Game 5.

Tweaks made by Sullivan and assistant coach Jacques Martin got the best out of that blue line Thursday with two goals and three assists. Amazingly, Hainsey got into the action, scoring his first goal since the first round.

Justin Schultz, Bryan Rust, Evgeni Malkin, Conor Sheary, Phil Kessel and Ron Hainsey scored for the defending champions.

Marc-Andre Fleury reportedly eligible to be picked in expansion draft
The younger netminder didn't falter and led Pittsburgh past the Nashville Predators in six games in the Stanley Cup Final. Fleury, 32, backstopped the Penguins to the 2009 Stanley Cup but was displaced by Murray in last year's run to the title.

"I think people were kind of unsure", said Arvidsson, who is listed now at five foot nine and 180 pounds. "It's a big game". Desperation should probably still fall on our side here, where we know we've got to win a game in Pittsburgh. Obviously it's there, everyone knows what's at stake, but it could be two games, it could be three games. Sheary took a pretty feed from Crosby and sent it by Saros 1:19 into the second to push Pittsburgh's lead to four. If that doesn't improve, Pittsburgh's going to find it hard to win. The Penguins, who are 7-0 in playoff series since Mike Sullivan became their coach midway through last season, are attempting to become the first team in the salary cap era to win back-to-back Cups. The home team has won each of the first four games of the Cup Final.

Rinne insisted his confidence isn't shaken though he was disappointed with Thursday's result.

After two games, it would have been reasonable to suggest Rinne had lost the rights to a potential Conn Smythe Trophy. "I don't know that I've been around an athlete, not just a hockey player, but an athlete, that is as driven as Sid is".

Bonino now boasts four goals and seven points through 21 postseason games, a step back from the 18 points in 24 games that he was able to put up during the team's successful championship run in 2016.

Midway through the first period of Game 5, the Penguins have six shots to the Predators' four.

The Penguins have home ice, which has proven to play a bigger role than expected in these Finals. Nashville's mobile defense corps has proved to be gritty too, and if Roman Josi's talents weren't common knowledge before the Final, they are now. Since the Predators are headed back to Bridgestone Arena for Game 6, Rinne will nearly certainly be back in the net.
