What do Pens and Preds have in store for Game 2?

The Pens struck back late in the period on yet another goal from Guentzel.

On game night, he took the fish to his cousin's house, filleted it, cut out half the spine and ran it over with his truck. Then it's way too much.

In addition to holding the Penguins to the lowest shot total in a Stanley Cup Final game for any team that was victorious, the Preds kept their hosts from registering a shot on goal from the start of the second period until Jake Guentzel scored the go-ahead goal with less than four minutes to play in the final period. "So that's pretty good". The Predators outshot the Penguins 18-12 in the first and 14-7 in the second.

He hasn't matched that pace in the postseason.

On nights like Monday in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, when a brief early flurry led to a baffling lull only to end how so many games have ended for the Penguins over the last two springs: with the bigger number on the scoreboard next to their name and the guys on the other bench wondering how Pittsburgh got away.

"There's a stretch they're able to gain some momentum, able to capitalize and be opportunistic and that swung two games in their favor", he said.

Ellis scored a power-play goal through a Viktor Arvidsson screen midway through the second period, cutting the deficit to 3-1.

"It was a different game", Rinne said. It was his league-leading 10th goal of the postseason and NHL-record fourth-game victor of the postseason, breaking the rookie mark set by Montreal's Claude Lemieux in 1986 and equaled by Colorado's Chris Drury in 1999. He's setting records with seemingly nearly every goal. Pittsburgh Penguins Matt Murray catches the puck during hockey practice, Wednesday, May 31, 2017 at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh. The second, a sniper shot by Penguins rookie Jake Guentzel exactly 37 minutes later, put Pittsburgh back in front to stay at 4-3. He has won 14 majors, the last one the U.S. Open in 2008 at Torrey Pines just one week before his fourth knee surgery, which sidelined him for almost nine months.

"It's insane", Guentzel said. "But the ultimate goal is two more wins, and that's obviously tough to get".

Guentzel, whose locker stall is next to Sidney Crosby's in the Penguins' dressing room and who was once the stick boy for the University of Minnesota when Phil Kessel played there in the 2005-06 season, is closing in on a 50-goal season, if you count the 21 he scored in 33 games for Wilkes-Barre before getting promoted to the National Hockey League, following a November injury to Chris Kunitz.

However, they managed to win FA Cup after beating English Premier League champions Chelsea 2-1 in the final at Wembley. He told reporters: "You can always say it was a first start of the season and first of being captain".

Guentzel was already leading all players in goals this post-season, his 12th marking the second-most ever for a rookie.

"He's been given a lot of responsibility", Crosby said. With the way Murray has been playing, it was a goal Rinne needed to have.

"I'm concerned about him", said Steve Stricker, the Presidents Cup captain who chose Woods as one of his assistants.

"I think we're going to be a good team still", MacLellan said.

For Pittsburgh lacking any kind of meaningful possession last game the Predators sure didn't do much at 5v5. Obviously, he's finishing so well right now, but he does everything.

Rinne stopped 21 of 25 shots. "He's just been so clutch for us".

Guentzel was born in Omaha, Neb., and raised in Minnesota, and it was there that he first came into contact with Kessel as a stick-boy for the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers where his father, Mike, worked as an assistant coach.

Sullivan said instead of sulking, Guentzel approached the criticism in a way that was beneficial. "He's a pleasure to coach".

Pittsburgh would get two more goals in the period from Conor Sheary and Nick Bonino to go up 3-0 in the first.
