Penguins regroup, Predators look for road magic in Game 5

The Nashville Predators got a boost to their lineup for Game Five of the Stanley Cup final with the return of veteran forward Colin Wilson, who made his debut in the series. Nashville Predators coach Peter Laviolette and players pause at the bench during the third period in Game 5 of the team's NHL hockey Stanley Cup Final against the Pittsburgh Penguins, Thursday, June 8, 2017, in Pittsburgh. Th.

The defending champions provided an emphatic reminder of why they're on the cusp of history with a 6-0 demolition of the Nashville Predators in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final to take a 3-2 lead.

It ended with haymaker after haymaker - both literal and proverbial - from the ever resilient Pittsburgh Penguins.

The victor of tonight's Stanley Cup Final Game 5 in Pittsburgh is not guaranteed to win the series.

The Penguins back at home would hope to break the two losing streak in game 5.

"I think just like everybody. It's world-class players. We can't shut them down game after game". Pittsburgh is averaging 3.0 goals per game in the playoffs, the same as the Predators. "They understand that we haven't accomplished anything to this point and that there's one more game that we have to go out and earn, and I believe that this group has the will and the character to do so". And Murray, for all of his struggles in Nashville, has still played great hockey all year long. Of the eleven shots that Rinne faced in Game 1, the defense was out of position on about six of them not including the one that deflected off Mattias Eckholm. He stuck with Murray, reunited Sheary with Crosby and Jake Guentzel, and stressed his team needed to play with urgency but not desperation after the Predators rallied to tie the series by outscoring the Penguins 9-2 during two wins in Nashville.

The Pittsburgh Penguins will attempt to keep the home team flawless in the Stanley Cup Final as they host the Nashville Predators as solid chalk in a pivotal Game 5 on Thursday.

Justin Schultz's power-play goal early in the first was the eventual victor, while Bryan Rust, Evgeni Malkin, Conor Sheary and Ron Hainsey also found the back of the net.

"You have those thoughts that why (is) the puck getting deflected in off our guys or something like that", Rinne said Saturday.

In the first four games of the series, he had seen how minor-league call-ups, such as Frederick Gaudreau and Pontus Aberg, had performed on the big stage.

It was a familiar showing for Rinne.

He started the first 15 games of the playoffs for the Penguins, with 9 wins, two shutouts and a.924 save percentage. The big Russian boasts an ugly 39 per cent possession mark in the four games so far with five-on-five scoring chances favouring Nashville 24-8. In Game 3, Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin were held without a shot on goal in the same playoff game for the first time in their careers.

"The real hockey starts now", Subban said.

"We've got some confidence".

"This is obviously a great win, a great feeling", said Hainsey, "but come tomorrow it's got to be parked because we have to get one more win".

But Pittsburgh's 6-0 win in Game 5 was the second true blowout of the series and the fourth decided by three or more goals. In the first home Stanley Cup Final games in Nashville, Rinne was able to finally get his skates back under him.

If Crosby brought his "A" game, Pekka Rinne once again brought his road game. "I don't even know what he did, P.K". Sissons scored ten points in fifty-eight games this year, but already has twelve in twenty postseason games including a hat trick in game six against Anaheim.

And then Jake Guentzel snapped that by scoring on the first shot against Pekka Rinne since the first period and that turned out to be the victor.
