Nashville Preys On The Penguins And Ties Stanley Cup Series 2-2

The Penguins are now 0-7 this postseason when trailing after two, and for the first time in Matt Murray's postseason career, he's lost back-to-back postseason games.

The goal was Crosby's first in a Final since June 4, 2009, a span of 12 games for the Pittsburgh captain.

After only making 26 of 34 saves in the games in Pittsburgh, Rinne stopped all but two at Bridgestone Arena, including acrobatic saves like the sequence above, and everything about his play seems calmer and more confident once back in more comfortable surroundings. Erasing memories of nightmarish start to this Final, the one-time Conn Smythe Trophy candidate ensured the Pens would not get a repeat of Crosby's earlier drive. "You've got to trust all those habits, all those things that you preach all year, come through when you need them most". We've seen reporters fall, drunk women trying to talk and just in general, people getting into the shot. We did a good job of that tonight. "They capitalized on our mistakes, and we have to do the same".

That doesn't mean the NHL's grueling seven-month, 82-game grind is kind to a body four decades old.

- The Stanley Cup Final - Game Five - Thursday night @ 7pm from Pittsburgh, coverage on NBC.

"We go back, watch some video, kind of clean some stuff up, and then it's another big game. We had a number of grade-A opportunities, a couple of breakaways, flurries around the net, so there were a lot of things from a process standpoint that we really liked".

His best may have been his stop on Chris Kunitz's breakaway at 3:29 of the second.

Key stat: Gaudreau has three career National Hockey League goals - all in these Stanley Cup Finals.

But Trump's latest comments undercut his own team, and have lawyers sharpening their knives for a possible Supreme Court showdown. Trump's call for a ban also is not in keeping with American values and it "exceeds the president's authority", Cardin also said.

But Gaudreau netted the game victor Saturday and broke a 1-1 tie in Game 4 with a wraparound that came so close to not going in that play continued for another 35 seconds until officials whistled for a review. Further review, though, showed the puck clearly crossed the goal line.

Calle Jarnkrok, Viktor Arvidsson and Filip Forsberg also scored for the Predators.

Nashville's win evens the series at two games apiece. Rinne made 23 saves for the night and the Predators are now 9-1 at home. They have to win two of three games to do it again, and I believe that's possible. The Penguins were better in game four... or perhaps Sidney Crosby was better, but this Penguins team is struggling with the Preds speed and defensive system.

The NHL says 3.6-plus million votes over a six-week stretch led to the choice of the Gretzky-led, Stanley Cup winning team that won its second straight title in 1985.

Game 4 marked the sixth time in their last 11 games the Penguins have scored just one goal, compared to just twice in 24 playoff games last spring.

The Nashville Predators are a hanging on to a two-goal lead against Pittsburgh late in in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final, a few minutes away from evening the series at 2-2.

The final is now a best-of-three, and we're guaranteed one more game in Nashville-where the Predators are 9-1 this postseason, and Rinne has a.949 save percentage, the second-best home numbers of any playoff goalie in the last decade.
