Penguins open early 2-0 lead on Preds in Game 5

Some expansion franchises have taken longer than others to fight their way to their first Stanley Cup, but take a look at how long it took each team and the moves they made to reach the top.

What: Game 4, Stanley Cup Final, Pittsburgh Penguins at Nashville Predators.

PITTSBURGH (AP) - The night started with a catfish throw. At least one of those wins will have to come in Pittsburgh, where Rinne has never won a game.

Sound for NBCSN's coverage of the Stanley Cup Final reflects what you'd expect from an arena hockey game: loud crowds - in this case, bolstered by an especially exuberant Nashville Predators home audience - and lots of high-frequency ice sound punctuated by the more-than-occasional body-slam thump into the dasher boards.

Pittsburgh goaltender Matt Murray not only avoided losing three straight games for the first time in his career, but he also stopped 24 shots for his second shutout of these playoffs, the third in the postseason of his career. This is a team that Games 1 and 2, there were a few minutes where we liked our game for some of it, then other parts of it, they took over. "It's a great feeling". They "got to their game" (another of Sullivan's favorite mantras) repeatedly in Game 4 only to lose. While Crosby had his best game of the series, with one goal on a team-leading four shots, the rest of the Penguins offense failed to generate much. That was the cheer heard several times in Game 2 when the Penguins jumped out to a 2-0 series lead.

"'Desperate' is a amusing word for me because it gets thrown around our game a lot", Sullivan said. Former NBA star and TV commentator Charles Barkley also was on hand, accepting NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman's invitation to watch in person.

"I think when he's going he plays with that fiery edge a little bit", Wilson said. Pittsburgh lost a challenge for goalie interference.

The series is tied 2-2.

But at home? Rinne has a.961 save percentage and has allowed just two total goals. He also moved into 20th all-time in National Hockey League playoff points but the Predators clamped down after that. Maybe the one about a minute later when Rinne denied Chris Kunitz on a breakaway? A video review confirmed that the puck did cross the line. "So usually our challenge with Phil and Geno all the time is just the subtleties and the details of the play away from the puck or without the puck that gives them the ability to get it back when they don't have it".

"I heard it on the bench that it was possibly in the net", Gaudreau said. "And I think that's the difference for him".

Crosby had another breakaway almost midway through the period, and Rinne stopped him not once, but twice. Viktor Arvidsson went through three drafts without being taken before the Predators got him 112 overall in 2014. Bonino has missed the past two games after taking a shot to the left foot or ankle.

The Penguins may be due for a big game from Sidney Crosby.

On the game's first shift, Crosby wove down the slot, putting a shot off the left post and drawing a holding penalty on Nashville defenseman Ryan Ellis.

"It's a good game but it's still not done", Malkin said.

To this point, the Final has played out exactly how logic would have it. It's his seventh goal of the playoffs.

The Penguins poured it on from the get-go, overwhelming the Predators from the opening faceoff and opening up a 3-0 lead by the end of the first period.

Game Five history: There have been 24 previous Cup finals tied at 2-2.

"We've played well at home", said Nashville head coach Peter Laviolette.
