Crosby scores, Malkin shoots yet Penguins lose 4-1 to Preds

Jun 08, 2017, 01:50

Five catfish, several towels, a stuffed penguin and a cowboy hat hit the ice Saturday night in the Predators' 5-1 win over Pittsburgh, which pulled Nashville within 2-1 in the best-of-seven series. Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby scored on a breakaway about a minute later. With his goal, Crosby now has 161 career playoff points and moved past Mike Bossy, Gordie Howe, Al MacInnis and Bobby Smith for 20th all-time by himself. Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final is in Pittsburgh on Thursday (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, SN, TVA Sports).

Gaudreau played just nine regular-season games this year and didn't score a goal.

It's probably too soon to award Frederick Gaudreau the nickname "Freddie Hockey", as some have playfully done in the wake of his Stanley Cup Final surge.

Rinne kept it tied in the early minutes of the second with a stop of Guentzel before a big save on Chris Kunitz on a breakaway.

Gaudreau's score went uncalled at first - everyone assumed Murray had come up with a reflexive save - but a subsequent horn and replay proved the puck had crossed the red line, putting the Preds in front and granting the arena a delayed celebration.

When people started throwing Cat Fish on the ice during the games I thought to myself "poor fish he didn't hurt anyone, but I wonder what's gonna happen when they win" well I found out really fast.

According to Rule 38.6: "In the event that a video replay shows a goal was scored prior to the play being stopped, the Video Goal Judge will inform the Game Timekeeper and Official Scorer of the time and the amount of playing time left to be reset on the game clock and penalty time clocks (if applicable)". But back to the festivities, one of the attractions featured a beat up old vehicle, literally and figuratively painted in Penguins colors with the logo on the sides, on the roof were people smashing it even more with a sludge hammer, I guess that's why they call it Smashville?

Calle Jarnkrok, Viktor Arvidsson and Filip Forsberg also scored for Nashville, which improved to 9-1 at home and roared back after dropping the first two games of the series on the road.

Malkin finished with two shots as the Penguins ended up being outscored 9-2 in Nashville. "I believe we've got great leadership in our room". Then the goalie slid to his right stopping Guentzel with an assist from Nashville defenseman Roman Josi.

Crosby came out with plenty of energy and got the Penguins on the scoreboard late in the first, converting on a breakaway to even the score at 1 after banking the puck off of the right post, where it was knocked into the goal by Rinne's skate.

Predators captain Mike Fisher started the play when he stripped Evgeni Malkin of the puck in the neutral zone.

Crosby said the next game is key.

Notes: Fisher, scoreless until the Final, now has four points.

Gaudreau's goal came 3:45 into the period on a wraparound, but there was no goal signal on the ice at the time.
