Florida News: PITTSBURGH PENGUINS
Brayden Point scored three goals in the span of 91-seconds to erase a 2-0 lead en route to a 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Washington Capitals are playing the Pittsburgh Penguins in their franchise's most important game tonight. Yes, a team that has won the President's Trophy three times this decade, features the best goal scorer of the generation, and has played in a Stanley Cup Final before is playing their most important game in franchise history in the second round.
About a decade ago, Rich DeVos looked at Kansas City as a home for his Orlando Magic franchise. No one is singing, I'm going to...
Even Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins are going to be challenged trying to top this. Crosby was awarded his second consecutive Conn Smythe Trophy as the MVP of the Stanley Cup playoffs, and goalie Matt Murray made 27 saves for his second straight shutout as the Penguins became the first team to repeat as champion in nearly two decades with a 2-0 win over the Nashville Predators in Game 6.
Pekka Rinne is a friendly, polite man off the ice. Slipping the puck past the Nashville Predators goaltender is one of the few ways to anger the 6-foot-5 Finn.
The night started with a catfish throw. It ended with haymaker after haymaker — both literal and proverbial — from Sidney Crosby and the rest of the resilient Pittsburgh Penguins. 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. Pittsburgh will have a chance to become the first franchise to win back-to-back championships since Detroit in 1998 when the series shifts back to Nashville for Game 6 on Sunday night.
The guy that scored the winner in Games 3 and 4 of the Stanley Cup Final doesn’t even have a locker in the Nashville Predators’ dressing room. The 22-year-old who leads the NHL in playoff goals and is a legit contender for the Conn Smythe trophy watched the Pittsburgh Penguins lift the Stanley Cup last spring on TV as a minor leaguer just getting his feet wet as a pro. Sure, technically Frederick Gaudreau and Jake Guentzel are rookies. Neither is playing like one.
Frederick Gaudreau sure is doing his best to earn his own locker with the Nashville Predators with a Stanley Cup Final debut for the ages. For now, he insists he is happy enough just to sit on the floor as long as he plays. An undrafted free agent playing in just his sixth postseason game, Gaudreau scored the go-ahead goal 3:45 into the second period and Pekka Rinne made 23 often-spectacular saves as the Predators beat the Penguins 4-1 on Monday night to even the series at 2-2.
Predators coach Peter Laviolette heard all the questions and criticism of Pekka Rinne after the goaltender's struggles in the Stanley Cup Final in Pittsburgh. Well, Laviolette never thought of switching goalies.
A good night's sleep has P.K. Subban more confident than ever about what the Nashville Predators will do on their own ice trailing the Pittsburgh Penguins 0-2 in the Stanley Cup Final. He delivered an All-Star guarantee for Saturday night. "There's no question," Subban said Thursday. "We're going to win the next game, and then we'll move forward."
