Catfish tosser says he was 'dumb redneck with a bad idea'

An ice worker removes a fish during the second period in Game 1 of the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Finals between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Nashville Predators, Monday, May 29, 2017, in Pittsburgh.

Last night, the Stanley Cup Finals kicked off with an energetic game one between the Nashville Predators and Pittsburgh Penguins.

Dead catfish, it turns out, are potentially risky objects. Game 3 is Saturday night in Nashville in what amounts to a last stand for the Predators and their suddenly very average-looking goalie. "Now it's down to six to try to grab the four", he said. "We don't get points for style". We found ways to execute.

Guentzel tapped home a loose puck under the left arm of Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne at 16:27 of the first. Guentzel ended an eight-game drought and tied Claude Lemieux (1986) and Chris Drury (1999) for the most game-winning goals by a rookie in the playoffs with four. The Eastern Conference champions took 12 shots in the first game of the Stanley Cup Finals. "I'm pretty sure we'll win that battle". Right now we are 100% in a result-orientated business.

In regards to the Predators prices, another reason they are so inflated is because the resale of Predators tickets is one of the most restricted in the National Hockey League, so inventory is incredibly limited. You can probably add baffled to the list.

Country music star Alan Jackson will play a concert prior to Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final in Nashville on Saturday. The gulf actually stretched 37 minutes in all, which sounds like a flawless way for the opponent to win.

Waddell wasn't initially arrested, according to Nashville sports talk radio show The Midday 180, whose hosts encouraged the gambit, but he missed his team's near-rally in the second and third periods.

The Penguins did not record a shot in the second period.

The angst Nashville felt isn't new to those who face the Penguins.

Conor Sheary scored his first of the playoffs and Evgeni Malkin collected his eighth. It didn't stop the Penguins from knocking off Columbus in five games and Washington in seven. He made the saves he needed to make when the Penguins needed them and, by all accounts, didn't do anything to lose the game for his team, if only because his team didn't lose. I don't think they will have the same forechecking success as they had in Game 1. We're going to expect them to play a better game, as well.

Behind the two Ferraris came the Red Bull of Daniel Ricciardo with Hamilton's teammate Valterri Bottas's Merecedes in fourth. Championship leader Sebastian Vettel , his Ferrari teammate, also got away cleanly from second on the grid.

Waddell said after buying two tickets for $350 each, he went to his cousin's house, and they filleted the fish. "You just have to stick with it and I was lucky to get one [Monday] night".

The Predators are more focused on the process than the end product. The moment came 12:47 into the first when P.K. Subban sent a wrist shot by Murray that appeared to give the Predators the lead.

During the slump his confidence "might waver a little bit but if you're getting the chances you can take positives out of that", he said. "That means we're going to have to be better, as well". "We've always responded the right way".

Typical for everyone except Rinne.

Sullivan also talked about wanting to limit Guentzel's minutes given that this this season his first taste of pro hockey coming out of college and not being used to the demands of an NHL schedule.

Flat out, the Predators would have won Game 1 had they received a representative performance from their goalie.

Chris Kunitz had two assists for the Penguins for a second game in a row.

"I thought our guys played a great game", Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. "We have all the belief in Pekks we can ever have".

Prior to Game 2, Rinne had allowed just one goal in each of the four games following a loss in these playoffs.
