Preds rout Pens, pull within 2-1 in Stanley Cup Final

The home team has won the first three games of the Stanley Cup Final for the second year in a row, meaning the Pittsburgh Penguins know the task ahead of them as they prepare for Game 4 on Monday night in Nashville.

The Stanley Cup Final moves back to Pittsburgh for Game 5 on Thursday night and the now guaranteed Game 6 will be in Nashville on Saturday night. NBCSN will be doing the national TV coverage while the game can be watched online live on FuboTV.

Bonino's left foot took the brunt force of a slap shot from Nashville's P.K. Subban during Game 2 in Pittsburgh and didn't play in Game 3.

Crosby has yet to score a goal in this series, and both he and Evgeni Malkin were held without a shot Saturday night in the same game for the first time in their star-studded careers.

The real reason the Predators were able to take hold of the game is due to their goaltender. Pekka Rinne returned to the otherworldly goalie we have seen for Nashville's Stanley Cup Finals run.

"To say that he's back to form, the form that we saw Pekka Rinne play for the Nashville Predators in the Western Conference Final, I think it's a little early for that", said Dreger.

Jake Guentzel, with his 13th of the postseason, scored the lone Penguin goal. In Game 3, in which Malkin and Sidney Crosby went without a shot, it was Crosby's turn to trash talk Subban.One more marker and Guentzel will tie Dino Ciccarelli's playoff goal-scoring record from 1980-81. "He's a real good penalty killer". No, the Pittsburgh captain insists he did not complain about Subban's breath in Game 3, saying Subban made that up.

Trump will not block ex-FBI director's testimony
He cant put somebody in jail for violating executive privilege, and he cant fire him, because hes already been fired.”. White House advisers had previously said that Trump was exploring his legal options regarding Comey.

Tonight's Game 4 will be very important because the Penguins will have another shot to gain a lead in a series the Predators obviously do not want to give up.

Except Pittsburgh wasn't getting smashed: they allowed good chances, but spent far more time somewhere other than their own zone. "I thought they had some looks", coach Mike Sullivan said of the superstar duo's hard night.

The Pittsburgh Penguins' center skated briefly with his teammates before Game 4 in warm-ups. "But we've got to make sure we're better".

With 22.6 seconds remaining in the second period, James Neal tucked in a loose puck to make it 3-1.

Injured Nashville Predators center Ryan Johansen may not be able to take a starring role on the ice during this year's Stanley Cup Final, but he's found a suitable consolation prize. That task fell to Pekka Rinne, who had been the reason why the Predators were trailing in the first place. "I wasn't certain. When I heard the horn, I sort of thought it was in".

"Decisions go into every game", Laviolette said. "That means not throwing anything on the ice, putting both our players and the officials in danger", Laviolette said in the video. "I played with the right organization and the right players at the right time".

It was rather definitive and what has to concern the Penguins is how Nashville can play an aggressive game, take penalties (even some bad ones) and the Preds penalty killing is too effective and strong and so unusual on the puck that the Pens are second guessing themselves after just one defeat in the championship round.
