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

Gaudreau, an undrafted free agent playing just his sixth postseason game, scored the go-ahead goal 3:45 into the second period, and Rinne made 23 often-spectacular saves as the Predators beat the Penguins 4-1 on Monday night. The goal was his first in the Stanley Cup Final since June 4, 2009 - a span of 12 games. Two nights earlier, he and Evgeni Malkin had failed to get a shot on net and the way that Crosby responded in Game 4 made it seem as though he took the outlier of a stat personally.

"It's hard to win when you score one goal", Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan said.

Pittsburgh, however, was problematic in the first two games of this series. It had everything to do with a remarkable performance by the 34-year-old goaltender. "When you start the way he did, having to work for everything, literally every contract and every opportunity to improve yourself - at this level, it's no different - that's on him".

With the score tied 1-1 in the second period, it was Rinne who stopped Chris Kunitz on a breakaway. Penguins C Sidney Crosby now has 17 career points in Cup Final games, two behind franchise leader Mario Lemieux. "They've had some high-quality chances, and the puck hasn't gone in the net for the last couple of games". Here's five things we learned. The score was tied at 1 at the time, and Nashville rookie Frederick Gaudreau scored Nashville's second of the game 16 seconds later on a wraparound under the stick of Matt Murray that was not initially called a goal on the ice. When limited to one goal during the 2016 postseason, they won the following game.

Crosby, who scored Pittsburgh's only goal, finished the game with four shots.

Pittsburgh's superstar has insisted he did not complain about Subban's breath in Game 3 as Subban said he did. Will the Predators continue with their unbelievable energy to take it to the Penguins in Pittsburgh on Thursday night? The Predators weren't shaken then, much like the Penguins aren't shaken now.

"I don't know how I was able to make the save", said Rinne. "But obviously, these two games have been huge for us". "That means not throwing anything on the ice, putting both our players and the officials in danger", Laviolette said in the video. "We have to go back and respond the right way". "I believe we've got great leadership in our room".

"If anything we just need to press a little more", Cullen said.

Nashville's Calle Jarnkrok was the first to get the puck past Matt Murray, scoring 5:09 into the first period.

The issues have been at the other end of the ice, where Rinne suddenly has his groove back. "We have no home ice in this series, so we have to go in and steal one at some point".
