Alan Jackson to perform free concert for hockey fans

Alan Jackson to perform free concert for hockey fans

The OCRegister wrote about the Penguins Game 2 victory and quoted Guentzel on his performance throughout these playoffs.

This time, Pittsburgh's flurry came a little bit later.

The fans learned well and their team has put on a master class this postseason in reaching its first Stanley Cup Final. It's not that they don't throw punches; it's not that they don't have knockout power.

"This is an exciting time for the Predators and the city of Nashville", Jackson said in the release. "They're an opportunistic team".

The Preds didn't score with their partial five-on-three advantage - Malkin also drew a questionable penalty for hooking - but they broke through with their first lead of the series on a goal from Aberg.

If the Predators don't get it together back home in "Smashville", it might only be two.

His first goal on Monday was the result of some good fortune as he able to jam a loose puck through the slimmest of openings along the goal line, a play that Guentzel described as just trying to put the puck on net and seeing what happens.

The Spurs suffered season-ending injuries to two of their best players, Kawhi Leonard and Tony Parker , during their playoff run. He sang the praises of the Warriors after their 129-115 victory in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals.

Guarantees in sports are ridiculous because nobody can guarantee a damned thing, and besides, it would mean knowing Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne isn't in the middle of a collapse.

Rinne gave up the go-ahead goal 10 seconds into the third period when Jake Guentzel jumped on a rebound and skittered his shot into the far side of the net.

Rinne stopped 21 of 25 shots.

For Guentzel, this latest goal-scoring outburst couldn't have come at a better time for both him and the Penguins. The Predators controlled the pace and the puck, just not the scoreboard. He dribbled a puck through Rinne for Pittsburgh's first goal in Game Two and then made no mistake with Bryan Rust's rebound to net the victor here.

Guentzel scored on a rebound 10 seconds into the third off the pad of Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne. Rinne came into the series with a.941 save percentage in the playoffs, and was pulled for backup Juuse Saros.

"You never know", Aldean said.

Perhaps as retaliation for the Cullen hit or perhaps in response to Subban clubbing Crosby during an earlier sequence, Chris Kunitz picked up two minutes for cross-checking Subban's head into the boards at 9:36. Asked whether his confidence was intact, Rinne said, "Of course, when you lose a couple games and get pulled you're not happy how things went, but you've got to put those things behind and focus on the things you can control".

The bleeding began when Jake Guentzel scored his second goal of Game 2. Given two opportunities to commit to Rinne for Game 3, including one direct question, Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said, "Pekka's been excellent for us all year long" or a variation, and didn't say yes.

What doesn't is that Rinne is the weak spot, and this is how Pittsburgh wins. Every other champ since 2008 has been top four. He failed to generate much offensively, as he tallied just one shot on goal and three attempts. "I think that's just an indication of the skill level that he has and the elite player that he is".

In this case, you can see why.

"It's insane", said Guentzel, who has an National Hockey League rookie record five game-winning goals this postseason. Scott Wilson and Evgeni Malkin scored 15 seconds apart in the third period at PPG Paints Arena, as Pittsburgh again struggled for long stretches before finding a way to win. "Obviously, they're going to be tough to get".

Fifty teams have taken a 2-0 lead since the final went to a best-of-seven format in 1939. Goalies go up, and goalies fall.

The Predators, too, have offered plenty of proof that they aren't cooked.

Things are rosy for the Pens now, up 2 games 0 in the series as it heads to Nashville. At the end of the day you have to work hard to get bounces.

Waddell, who has been banned from Penguins games for life, referred to himself as an "ignorant redneck" but boasted about outsmarting arena security. They snuck into the playoffs with a 41-29-12 record, a record that would not have gotten them into the Eastern Conference playoffs.
