PK Subban is pretty confident the Nashville Predators will win Game 3


"Will be happy to get home".

They didn't have to scrape a catfish off the ice at PPG Paints Arena on Wednesday night.

The Penguins and Predators could have the same lineups for Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final, two nights after a weird start to the series that few could have expected. Ken Campbell of HockeyNews wrote about Murray's superb play this postseason for the Penguins and quoted him on his pre-game nerves. Rinne seemingly caved to the weight of the moment.

"Obviously, it's very disappointing right now", said Rinne.

This game was closer to what we had expected out these two up-tempo teams. Scott Wilson added to the total with a deflection from Vernon Fiddler and 15 seconds later Evgeni Malkin fired a shot past Pekka Rinne, who was finally pulled.

In the third period of Game 2, the Preds' hope turned into dread in an instant - or, to be precise, in 10 seconds, which is how long it took Penguins rookie Jake Guentzel to score the go-ahead goal.

Still, it was a goal that Rinne should have had.

His goal also came with three of Nashville's best defensemen - Mattias Ekholm, Roman Josi and P.K. Subban - on the ice, stuck after the penalty expired. "We're looking at ourselves". The Predators did dominate in Game 1, but they were only able to tie the score because of two power-play markers. "We've had good success here". It's an opportunity to go out and throw out your best period and put yourself in a good spot and I thought we had a really good third.

Rinne, 34, will have to rebound in a big way. He has given up eight goals in less than six full periods.

It was goaltending that also did in Laviolette in his last run to the Cup Final. Guentzel, a native of Omaha, Nebraska, leads American-born rookie scorers in goals in one playoff season. That gave Pittsburgh as many shots as it had in Game 1. They can take confidence from their great home record these playoffs - 7-1 in Nashville, with no regulation losses - and the old adage that no series truly begins until a home team loses. The Penguins may have made a goaltender change, but they are still winning games the same way they did with Marc-Andre Fleury early this postseason. Rinne's paltry record and.865 save percentage against Pittsburgh are both his worst stats against any National Hockey League opponent.

Seven Predators fired shots on goal in that span, and none of them got one past Penguins goalie Matt Murray.

Even with supremely talented players who are capable of making moves most National Hockey League players couldn't even dream of, these plays - the courageous block, the big hit, the extra reach to keep a play alive or start a rush - are the ones that get the Penguins' bench going. And after Rinne had allowed four goals on 11 shots in Game 1, he wanted to feel good about his game again.

The Penguins and Predators each have a goal as Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final is tied at the first intermission. "We've got to be better defensively and find ways to beat Murray ..." He recalls the saves he has made, the teams he has foiled.

Guentzel scored on a rebound 10 seconds into the third off the pad of Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne.

Predators fans who don't already have tickets to the big game could certainly benefit from the giveaway since they likely won't have any money leftover to spend on souvenirs.

"There's no frustration", Subban said. "But we know the ultimate goal is two more wins and they're going to be tough to get". The group, with help from an engaged forward group, limited shots in and around Rinne, won puck battles along the boards and escaped the defensive zone with seeming ease.

"Pekka has been terrific through this entire playoffs", Laviolette said. Because he played only 13 regular-season games past year, he still qualifies as a rookie and was eligible for the Calder Trophy but didn't make the list of finalists.
