Nashville Predators fans watch the Predators play the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 1 of the NHL Stanley Cup Finals at a viewing areas set up across the street from Bridgestone Arena Monday

"I didn't like what he said so I said something back to him, so away we went".

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 Predators, who hadn't lost two straight playoff games this spring until the Final, hope to feed off the enthusiasm of their fans in Game 3.

Still, it was Nashville striking first on a gorgeous individual effort from rookie Pontus Aberg.

The Predators will limp home to Bridgestone Arena Saturday trailing 2 games to 0. Will the Predators be in the 90 percent, or pull off a miracle four wins to join the 10 percent club?

What has made Rinne's performance so deflating is that Nashville had been driving possession for most of Game 2 and might have actually been the better team.

Pittsburgh also went 37 minutes without recording a single shot on net.

Speed up Brexit talks to avoid 'no deal', European Union tells UK
The prospect of a hung Parliament would throw serious doubt over Brexit negotiations, due to begin in earnest in just 10 days. She is regarded as having performed well during the campaign, which was marred by deadly attacks in Manchester and London.

"We've put in a lot of time to build ourselves as a team that is ready to play, is ready to win, and confident about our ability to do that", said Laviolette.

Most of the players exited with a sober but focused look as they now prepare for a home game in primetime Saturday. His backup, Juuse Saros, wasn't scored upon, but the deficit was just too much and the Penguins defeated the Predators by a final score of 4-1.

Malkin leads the National Hockey League in postseason points with 26.

Rinne is a three-time Vezina Trophy finalist who entered the final as the hottest goaltender in the playoffs with a.947 save percentage.

No one has finished better for the Penguins in the playoffs than Guentzel.

I'm not saying Subban was intimate with Crosby, but I bet he could tell you what Crosby had for the pregame meal.

It hasn't been easy against Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh's opportunistic play, and extremely bad goaltending from Rinne, turned this game on its head in a very similar way to Game 1. Those numbers ballooned after the first two games against the Penguins.

SCO Summit: PM Modi meets Chinese President Jinping, Uzbekistan President Mirziyoyev
The SCO heads in 2015 chose to give Pakistan the status of a full member during a meeting at Ufa in Russian Federation . He said Pakistan is diligently implementing the CPEC which is the flagship project of the Chinese initiative.

"Pekka has been excellent for us all year long, like I said", he said.

Head coach Mike Sullivan explained that the reason they succeeded had to do, in part, because of the odd man rushes created.

Rinne allowed four goals on 11 shots in Game One and has allowed 20 goals over his past six games after conceding just 16 over his first 11 playoff games. In 21 regular season games this year, the 22-year-old went 10-8 with a.923 save percentage and a 2.35 goals against-average.

Guentzel the Gunner: Pittsburgh rookie Jake Guentzel snapped an eight-game drought with the tiebreaking goal to win Game One with just 3:17 to play on Monday.

Waddell, who describes himself as a "dumb redneck with a bad idea", said that the clever scheme popped into his head during a Memorial Day weekend spent in OH visiting his in-laws.

That was enough to end Rinne's night, but the Predators aren't blaming their goaltender for the series deficit.

"It's not the situation we wanted coming here", said Rinne.

Penguins, Predators tied, tired
Now, we have the chance to watch the two clubs take on one another with Neal and Hornqvist an underlying story in the series. Parenteau told NHL.com's Tom Gulitti he would not be playing in Game 5 , but didn't confirm it was Wilson taking his spot.
