Predators even up Stanley Cup Final at home


His counterpart at the other end of the ice, Pekka Rinne, delivered arguably his best performance of the Stanley Cup Final when he turned away 23 shots, including what Sullivan described as the Penguins' greatest number of scoring chances in the series.

NASHVILLE-It was before Game 4 that Wayne Gretzky was asked why it was so much harder to score these days, and he lauded the kids these days before saying, essentially, goaltending.

A second catfish also hit the ice before Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final between the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins and the Predators.

The polarizing Nashville Predators defenceman has always stood out in a game that in recent years has been largely denuded of its personality - and personalities - by the era of sports as high finance.

Arvidsson's third goal of the playoffs gave the Predators a 3-1 lead at the 13:08 mark, moving them a step closer toward evening the Stanley Cup Final at two games apiece. And it will resume with Game 5 on Thursday at PPG Paints Arena.

"It's been unbelievable for us, the way he's come, he's been so good. He's been a huge part of our success".

She said the U.K.'s national threat level remained at severe on Monday, which "means that a terrorist attack is highly likely". May said the victims included a "number of nationalities", saying it was "an attack on the free world".


Gaudreau didn't score a goal during the regular season this year.

Justin Schultz and Ian Cole - The Penguins defence pairing was on for two goals against (and Schultz was on for the empty-netter against) in a 4-1 Game Four loss.

Johnson went on to turn around that campaign and you couldn't help get the feeling this weekend, watching the greatest player of our generation being forced to deny he accused another player of having bad breath, as the moment the Penguins' campaign for a Stanley Cup repeat started circling the drain. Did you have him matching the combined goal output of Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel thus far in the series?

Carrie Underwood admitted during the first intermission that she didn't get Fisher, her husband, a birthday present on Monday - holding out hope that a Stanley Cup championship celebration would do the trick in coming days.

After the Penguins yet again failed to break out of their zone cleanly, Calle Jarnkrok potted the rebound of a Craig Smith shift at 14:51 after Olli Maatta probably should have been called for holding Smith on that shift. Pittsburgh lost a challenge for goalie interference.

Just 66 seconds later, Crosby tied it up for Pittsburgh on a dazzling breakaway.

The Penguins' penalty kill had yielded four goals in this series, but they locked things down against the Predators in Game 4. He also moved into 20th all-time in National Hockey League playoff points but the Predators clamped down after that.

Rinne's most timely save may have been his stop on Chris Kunitz's breakaway at 3:29 of the second.

Gaudreau's goal was confirmed only after the horn sounded and officials reviewed the play. The puck barely snuck inside the goal line, bouncing off a lunging Matt Murray's blocker pad and back out in a split second.

"I could be sitting on the floor and I would take it", Gaudreau, 24, told reporters. "I wasn't certain. When I heard the horn, I sort of thought it was in".

If you somehow did, or you're lying, surely you didn't have Rinne - who stopped 23 of 24 - making three saves in three seconds during a key second-period flurry, the last one featuring an across-the-crease leap. Then the goalie slid to his right stopping Guentzel with an assist from Predators defenseman Roman Josi.
