Penguins vs. Predators: Game 2 prediction

And then things settled down. The Penguins beat Rinne four times on just 11 shots in Game 1 and scored three goals on 25 shots Wednesday for a 2-0 series lead.

"Looking back since I came here a couple years ago, he's been the best player in nearly all of the games played", Filip Forsberg said.

"Being down 3-0 to the Stanley Cup champions, coming back and tying it up with an opportunity to win the hockey game is definitely something to build on".

The tension was eased, however, when rookie Guentzel snapped a personal eight-game drought to score his playoff-leading 10th goal that gave the Penguins a lead they would not relinquish.

Phil Kessel sent a shot toward the net from the right wing, and it glanced off team mate Scott Wilson, then hit Nashville's Vern Fiddler's skate and went under goaltender Pekka Rinne's pads at 3:13 to make it 3-1.

European Commission leader blasts Trump on climate plans
The U.S., specifically, has pledged to reduce their carbon emissions from 26 to 28 percent by 2025, from 2005 levels. Trump has not said which way he is leaning, but United States media have reported that a pullout was likely.

He got a long rebound of a shot by Bryan Rust and took advantage of an open quarter of the net to make it 2-1. P.K. Subban was jawing at anyone who had ears, but they brushed it off, especially Sidney Crosby. In the 20 playoff games they've played in, they have only out-shot their opponent in six of them.

It was a scene hard to imagine through the first two taut and chippy periods. He had gone to a place where he had made the big saves, where he had picked up the big win, where he was once again the best goalie in the playoffs. However, if you are the Nashville Predators what do you take away from game one? Rinne entered the Cup Final 12-4 with a 1.70 goals-against average and a.941 save percentage in the postseason.

"I think when I'm sitting in the (press) box up there, the people sitting next to me don't really like me", the injured Penguins defenseman said with a grin Tuesday, the first time he has spoken publicly since he had season-ending surgery the second week of April for a herniated disc in his neck. Rinne allowed four goals on 11 shots - the Penguins added a late, empty-netter - and looked particularly bad on both Evgeni Malkin's first-period, five-on-three goal and Jake Guentzel's third-period victor, the first shot Rinne had faced in 37 minutes, nine seconds. Sheary struck 1:05 after Malkin's goal, converting a wide-open look from the side of the net. "I think we were just glad to get the win at the end of the night".

The Predators were hardly intimidated by the big stage. It didn't hurt the Penguins in this game, but it could become an issue moving forward.

A mere 10 seconds into the third period, Bryan Rust fired a long-range shot that bounced off Rinne and onto Guentzel's stick for the game-winner.

LeBron James Says Thinking About Playing Warriors in Finals Is 'Too Stressful'
James stayed with Cleveland until 2010, where he made a decision to "take his talents to South Beach" by going to the Miami Heat . He's a guy who said he wanted us, and he has us starting next Thursday, and you know he's a guy who brings it every single night.

Ellis scored a power-play goal through a Viktor Arvidsson screen midway through the second period, cutting the deficit to 3-1. "Point shots... their top four [defensemen] are huge for them".

The Penguins, now -250 favorites on the series prices, were perhaps guilty of being too content to just sit on their lead in Game 1, but the Predators also deserve their share of the credit for controlling the tempo most of the night.

From there, the Predators were rolling, with all the momentum from their three-goal comeback.

Pontus Aberg scored for Nashville, which has 18 shots, and Jake Guentzel scored for Pittsburgh, which has 12.

"It just wasn't our night", Fisher said. "He's just been so clutch for us".
