Stanley Cup Final: Penguins in charge of series with Game 2 win

The charges were later dropped, but Waddell's elaborate stunt in which he doused the fish in cologne and ran over it with his vehicle before vacuum-sealing it will go down in Stanley Cup history. They went 9 minutes and 50 seconds without a shot, reminiscent of the second period of Game 1when they had no shots at all.

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. Nashville Predators goalie Pekka Rinne (35) watches the puck shot by Pittsburgh Penguins' Jake Guentzel land in the net for a goal during the third period in Game 2 of the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Final, Wednesday, May 31, 2017.

It was enough for Nashville coach Peter Laviolette to send in backup goalie Juuse Saros in to replace Rinne.

Guentzel broke the tie 10 seconds into the third period by converting the rebound of a shot by Bryan Rust.

The defending Stanley Cup champions needed just over three minutes at the start of the third period to turn a taut Game 2 into a runaway, beating Pekka Rinne three times in a 4-1 victory on Wednesday night to inch closer to becoming the first team in almost 20 years to win back-to-back titles.

Sometimes the worst part of an injury is not the pain, but rather it's watching helplessly as the team tries to win without you in the lineup.

The floodgates are open in Pittsburgh.

Vying to become the first repeat Stanley Cup champion since Detroit in 1997-98, Pittsburgh, which leads this best-of-seven series by two games to none, is halfway there.

They beat Pekka Rinne anyway.

Outside of his fresh face and reticent personality, Jake Guentzel has seldom looked like the 22-year-old rookie that he is.

Evgeni Malkin extended Pittsburgh's lead to 4-1 just 15 seconds later, beating Rinne with a wrist shot during a two-on-one. He had stopped almost 95 percent of the shots he'd faced through the first three rounds. They don't win games with 12 shots and going 37 minutes without one period.

The decision gave the Penguins all the wiggle room they needed to take charge.

Game 2 is Wednesday night in Pittsburgh. Penguins' Sidney Crosby, right, passed the puck to Guentzel. Guentzel, a native of Omaha, Nebraska, leads American-born rookie scorers in goals in one playoff season. "After that, we have confidence that we're going to score goals". He speaks a little bit of Russian, but I play with some Russians too. One came off a Predators defender in front of the net, and the eventual game-winner came after a 37-minute period of no Penguins shots.

With Kunitz providing an offensive spark, the Penguins sit two wins from claiming the franchise's fifth championship.

Obviously, Rinne was never going to continue playing at that pace.

The Penguins went 0/7 in Game 2 on the powerplay and will look to improve on the road.

The Predators defence, anchored by veterans Roman Josi, Ryan Ellis, Mattias Ekholm and Subban, has been outstanding defensively and contributing mightily offensively as well, but the team's ability to turn dross into gold has been a characteristic of the team's scouting and development for many years. The Predators rallied to tie before Guentzel's go-ahead goal with 3:17 remaining put the Penguins ahead to stay.

Tradition, basically. The Tennessean reports that it started in 2003, when someone threw a catfish on the ice during the playoffs at a home game. Throwing a catfish onto the ice dates back to 2003.

Last year, some fans got hold of an eight-foot replica of a hammerhead shark and strung it up from a crane before the team went on to win the Stanley Cup Finals over the San Jose Sharks.

"Nashville, in the first period, were winning a lot of faceoffs and putting a lot of pressure on", Pearn said. It's Guentzel's playoff-leading 11th goal.

Aberg, cutting in from the left wall, got past Pittsburgh defenseman Olli Maatta, who fumbled the puck, and swept across just above the crease, patiently holding the puck and roofing it past Murray.

It's Aberg's second goal of the playoffs. The Predators are 7-1 at home in this postseason.

A Subban blast with the ensuing power play would briefly hobble Penguins centre Nick Bonino, who tried crawling to the bench before later returning for the second period. "They missed their biggest opportunity of the game to take control when they didn't score on the 5-on-3".

Then Matt Cullen is boarded, but hey, the Predators already got a penalty called on them so.No call here.
