Preds Leaning On Rinne To Force Penguins Back To Pittsburgh

Hate it enough, he figured, and they'd be motivated to play better because they'd never want to feel so wretched again. Pittsburgh has averaged 5.0 goals per game in its three home games, but just 1.0 goal per game on the road.

"Matt, I think, understands his game and how he needs to play in order to help this team win, and he believes in himself and we believe in him", Sullivan said. Rinne stopped 50 of 52 shots he faced back home in Games 3 and 4.

That, more broadly, is how Murray describes his ability to cooly handle the spotlight - "just worry about doing my job and trying to give the team the best chance to win". Ellis was among several Predators who did not take part in an optional practice Saturday.

Three teams have lost by six goals but each rebounded to win the next game, including the Ducks' 7-1 loss to Edmonton in Game 6 of their second-round series followed by a 2-1 victory over the Oilers in Game 7. He had one assist in his previous 10 games.

The Pittsburgh Penguins will have an opportunity to end the Stanley Cup Final on Sunday and claim the NHL's first repeat title since the Detroit Red Wings won back-to-back championships in 1997-98. "Their best players were their best players and played with a lot of speed, created a lot of good space". I think we have to play with conviction.

The success of home teams in this series also favours the Predators ahead of Game 6.

Crosby and the Penguins will look to close out the Predators in Game 6 on Sunday night in Nashville.

The two-time MVP's eventful night included becoming the franchise's all-time leading scorer in the Stanley Cup Final, a two-minute roughing penalty for trying to dribble Nashville defenseman P.K. Subban's head on the ice near the end of the first period and what he said was an inadvertent flip of a water bottle onto the ice during play.

"It's a good game, but it's still not done", Malkin said.

"It's not really something I think about at all, to be honest", said Murray, who took over for Fleury midway through the Eastern Conference final. I will be at Bridgestone Arena along with the Game Ops team, putting on the show and sending our love and support from Smashville... if you can't make it downtown, pregame starts on 102.5 the Game at 6pm. "What a maroon!" Do yourself a favor... ignore the trolls, unfollow them... they'll go back under their bridge eventually. "Last chapter doesn't have anything to do with it".

"There was a lot to like about that game", said head coach Mike Sullivan.

It's hard to imagine them topping their performance Thursday, when Crosby dominated from the start and 12 players earned at least one point.

"'Desperate' is a amusing word for me because it gets thrown around our game a lot", Sullivan said.

In his short National Hockey League career, which began with a Cup win as the unlikely Penguins starter last spring, Murray has demonstrated an ability to rebound from poor performances. He's just looking for one win. "I don't understand the call. We know we're going to play our best hockey and we're going to come back with an even better performance".
