Penguins to stick with goalie Matt Murray for Game 5

Penguins goalie Matt Murray and defenseman Ron Hainsey stop a shot by the Predators’ Colton Sissons during Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Monday in Nashville

Here are five times this postseason you swore the Penguins were done (but they weren't).

The question for the Penguins, who are one win away from repeating as Stanley Cup champions, is whether they can get that same team-wide effort on the road in Game 6 on Sunday, where they had so much trouble.

"Growing up, you watch him, so to be honest it's pretty special", said Guentzel, whose 13 postseason goals are one off the National Hockey League playoff rookie record set by Dino Ciccarelli with the Minnesota North Stars in 1981.

The best news we could receive from this ass-spanking is that Ryan Ellis isn't actually injured.

So do the Predators, who can't get back to Smashville fast enough.

"I think we're going to expect their best hockey in their rink", Predators forward James Neal said.

"We love playing at home", Cullen said.

The home side added three more scores in the second where Phil Kessel notched his first goal of the Final, with Conor Sheary and Ron Hainsey adding to the Penguins' tally.

Just like the Preds - the underdog team that, earlier this season, few would have predicted would be playing in the Stanley Cup Final - Handel's famous piece sneaks up on you in the best way.

"I don't know that we feel that we're against the ropes".

Colin Wilson gets his first start of the Stanley Cup Final. He's not really anxious about the 190 feet in front of Murray, either. "He makes timely saves for us", Mike Sullivan said.

The Penguins needed just 91 seconds to get on the scoreboard.

Scotland striker Leigh Griffiths 'gutted' after England's last-gasp leveller
England, who were not impressive overall, remain top of Group F on 14 points while Scotland are in fourth spot on eight points. You can't do any more than they did.

He popped for two assists in a series-opening win, set up the lone goal in Game 3 and scored the only goal himself in Game 4.

"Mario is great because he does entrust us with making the right decisions". He's as hungry as I've seen a player, and I just think he understands it. "We came here with the mission to win the game and we didn't have the start or the game we wanted". "We still need one more game, one more win".

The two-time MVP's eventful night included becoming the franchise's all-time leading scorer in the Stanley Cup Final, a two-minute roughing penalty for trying to dribble Nashville defenseman P.K. Subban's head on the ice near the end of the first period and what he said was an inadvertent flip of a water bottle onto the ice during play.

"I'm not an official so I'm not going to judge what's over the line and what's not", Subban said.

Malkin scored on the resulting four-on-four to give the Penguins a 3-0 lead heading into the first intermission. "But yeah, he's been a good friend and he certainly had a nice text after we beat them in the playoffs". He's stopped just 34 of 45 in Pittsburgh during the series.

Saros hardly fared any better. The Predators won 4-1 to tie the series 2-2. It didn't work. Saros gave up a goal on the first shot he faced.

After dropping two straight in Pittsburgh, the Predators held serve at home, and captured two lopsided victories to square the series.

The total has gone over in just six of Nashville's last 20 playoff games with seven pushes, according to the OddsShark NHL Database. The road to the Stanley Cup can be a bumpy ride. A shot at a fifth awaits Sunday, though it'll hardly be easy. "It's about going back and forth".

There's the third Stanley Cup - one more than mentor and team owner Mario Lemieux - and the chance to lead the first repeat Cup champs in the salary cap era and first in nearly 20 years. They knew they would be starting on the road in every series, and the Predators responded by winning the opener of their first three series. The teams combined for 100 penalty minutes (58 for Nashville, 42 for Pittsburgh).

As well, Penguins' rookie Jake Guentzel earned an assist on Sheary's goal, his 21st point of the playoffs. Perhaps more prominently, it centers on Malkin, who has 26 points in the postseason but only two in his past five games and none since Game 2 of the Final.

Murray has posted a 5-3 mark with a 2.08 goals-against average and.925 save percentage in the past nine games after missing the first two rounds of the playoffs due to a lower-body injury.
