Crosby scores early, but Penguins lose 4-1

Crosby scores early, but Penguins lose 4-1”

They also have a five-game home winning streak.

The Penguins have played almost every type of game in the last month - they've been embarrassed, they've done the embarrassing and ran teams out of the building, they've won 1-0 games and they've won games in overtime.

And his name isn't Murray.

An undrafted free agent playing just his sixth career playoff game, Gaudreau scored the go-ahead goal 3:45 into the second period and Pekka Rinne made 23 saves as the Predators beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-1 on Monday night to even their best-of-seven Stanley Cup final 2-2.

As expected, Matt Murray will be the Penguins starting goalie in Game 5 against the Predators.

"Pek's was unbelievable again tonight", said defenceman Ryan Ellis. "We had some high-quality chances".

The Penguins have the highest team shooting percentage (9.6%) during the playoffs.

With their win Monday in Game Four, the Predators became the 13th team to even the Final at 2-2 after dropping the first two games of the series.

History should also tell us all not to count Nashville out in this one. Filip Forsberg is the second choice among Nashville players at plus-900.

Prior to the game, a Predators fan tossed a catfish onto the ice.

"I know that Matt's excited to play tonight and he certainly has had success here at home and we're hoping that we have our best game in front of him", Sullivan said. "I think that's a risky element of our game that has been prevalent throughout of course of this season".

The Nashville Predators' top two defensive pairings are among the best in the National Hockey League. Both could have been classified as turning points.

Sidney Crosby scored his first goal in the series after not getting a shot on goal in Game 3. "That was the case in our building and it was the case in their building". Schultz can go cold-blooded at anytime and blast a goal, but his defensive play is more important right now. It turns out the puck had fully crossed the line, giving the Preds a 2-1 lead.

"I think everybody knows Geno's drive in the locker room", said Kunitz. "But at the moment that was a big play".

A year ago, Murray might not have been able to stay as calm, but the experience of having already won a Cup made this speed bump a little easier to handle.

"They are always loud and they are always pushing us to be the best we can be", forward Carl Hagelin said. "Pek's did a phenomenal job on the first save, the second, the third, the fourth". I was finding pucks through traffic for the most part.

Employers could give a Nashville Predators fan a break on Tuesday morning.

There is only so much the Penguins can do to mask their obvious disadvantage on defense. Crosby was that risky. But just as the Predators started to gain some structure in their game, Evgeni Malkin wristed a top-shelf shot past goalie Pekka Rinne late in the first period.

Their two scariest remaining offensive players only just got in on the action in Game 4. Pass the puck through the neutral zone and keep it away from Rinne behind the goal.

Rookie Frederick Gaudreau has no problem performing on hockey's biggest stage.

It was the goalie who's back to being the team's playoff MVP.

Which leads us to a pivotal game five Thursday night at 7 p.m.

"You come here with the mindset that you knew what happened the first two games, but that's not going to change the way I play or prepare", Rinne said. I felt good enough to play, and I was happy with how my body held up last season. It was hard to establish much pressure because Subban and Ekholm got the puck up and out of the zone with such ease. But it was Arvidsson who used his speed to motor up the ice and create the breakaway. "He's the heartbeat of the team".
