Lavoie: Penguins have the number of 'awful' Pekka Rinne

Lavoie: Penguins have the number of 'awful' Pekka Rinne Lavoie: Penguins have the number of 'awful' Pekka Rinne

The game was tied at 1-1 through two tight periods on goals by Pontus Aberg and Guentzel, but it took just 10 seconds of the third for Guentzel - who scored the victor in Game One - to get his second of the night and 12th of the playoffs.

The Penguins and Predators each have a goal as Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final is tied at the first intermission. After recording the game-winner in Monday's series opener, Guentzel scored Pittsburgh's first two goals on Wednesday night, giving him an NHL-leading five game-winning playoff goals and 19 points in the postseason, the most of any American-born rookie in National Hockey League history. Pittsburgh added an empty-netter for insurance to make 5-3, and make the series 1-0 Pittsburgh.

Rinne entered the game leading the playoffs in wins (12) and goals-against average (1.83) while posting a.934 save percentage.

It was enough for Nashville coach Peter Laviolette to send in backup goalie Juuse Saros in to replace Rinne. "That means we're going to have to be better, as well". "But you have to put those things behind and focus on the things you can control and that's Game 3".

A Nashville Predators fan who delayed the first game of the Stanley Cup ice hockey finals in the USA by throwing a catfish onto the rink won't be facing charges for his actions. "It's gaining lines. It's taking what the game gives you", Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan said.

Pittsburgh also is proof that a team can rally from an 0-2 deficit to win the Stanley Cup, doing it in 2009 to beat Detroit in seven games.

Last year, some fans got hold of an eight-foot replica of a hammerhead shark and strung it up from a crane before the team went on to win the Stanley Cup Finals over the San Jose Sharks.

Well, yes, facing a 2-0 Cup Final deficit to the defending champion Penguins is a problem.

The Penguins and Predators are tied at 1-1 going into the third period of Game 2 in the Stanley Cup Final. "But what I love about our team is that we find ways to win, we compete". Some things are less obvious, like how the Predators, sporting the clear best four defensemen in this series, have collapsed so quickly and completely in front of Rinne multiple times. Dino Ciccarelli tops the list, having scored 14 goals for Minnesota in 1981.

"They were throwing a lot of pucks at the net", Penguins captain Sidney Crosby said.

Hours later, the Sox paid tribute to Sale's six years of excellence on the South Side with a nice video tribute. He said, 'Hey, I'm in town. "He has my respect", White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu said through a translator.

It hasn't been easy against Pittsburgh. He had two goals and two assists in 50 games with Florida this past season.

His five game-winning goals are more than all of the Penguins' rookies since the start of the 2000 playoffs have produced - combined.

"Pekka's been excellent for us all year long", Laviolette said. "I think the first goal of the third period, you know, we went out there after playing two really solid periods and they scored a goal on the first shift".

In both of their losses to the Penguins this series, the Predators have allowed at least four goals, but Subban said his team is still in a good mental state, despite its season inching closer to the brink.

The game on Monday night was stopped in the second period so staff could remove the dead fish from the ice and the thrower, Jacob Deveral Waddell, was kicked of the arena where the Predators played the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Guentzel notched the game-winning goal in Games 1 and 2 of the Final, and his five winners this postseason is a rookie record.

Scott Wilson and Evgeni Malkin followed with the other two third-period goals.

Evgeni Malkin extended Pittsburgh's lead to 4-1 just 15 seconds later, beating Rinne with a wrist shot during a two-on-one.

A crowd decked in yellow and waving similar coloured towels howled as Rinne's night came to an end. - The Minnesota Wild have promoted Andrew Brunette to assistant general manager, the latest post in the organization for one of the best players in franchise history.
