Ron Hainsey - A sure sign that the game was going in Pittsburgh's favour: Hainsey had a goal and an assist.
"I think Sid really understands the opportunity that this team has, and he's not taking anything for granted", Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan said.
"We made mistakes in front of him", Laviolette said. That allows Laviolette to use his top defense pairings more in faceoff situations to better counter the likes of Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.
Crosby played out of his mind, in more ways than one. You may post to my Facebook or Twitter (@WilsonCoSports) pages or even email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You want the Cup? "He's very encouraging. He's very supportive, and these guys, they so look up to him for what he's accomplished in the game and the player and the person that he is, that they'll go through a wall for him".
For the first four games of the series - even the two they won - the Penguins struggled to hold onto the puck and drive play, something that changed in a 6-0 blowout in Game 5. Drifting toward the back of the net, Crosby made a ideal backhand pass to Conor Sheary, who deposited the puck into the net to give Pittsburgh a 4-0 lead 79 seconds into the middle frame.
Facing elimination in game six, the Predators defenseman insisted his team will play better in Nashville. The Pens had six different goal scorers, and twelve players had points in the game. From Subban's waved-off goal in Game 1 to Thursday's head-banging (yes, the Pengys thoroughly outplayed the Preds and earned the win), we're left wondering whether there's a conspiracy to support the home team, especially since Pittsburgh fans could argue calls went against their team in Bridgestone Arena (which we could call the Bat Cave). Not only that, Crosby and Subban continued their personal rivalry, highlighted by Crosby repeatedly burying Subban's head into the ice behind the play.
Mike Milbury will never be confused for a member of the P.K. Subban fan club. "I'm not going to judge what's over the line and what's not". Rinne's backup, Juuse Saros, gave up three goals on 15 shots from the defending Stanley Cup champions.
Rinne performed superbly in two wins at home in Nashville, stopping 50-of-52 shots.
Pittsburgh couldn't close out Columbus, Washington or Ottawa the first chance the Penguins had in each of their previous three playoff series.

With 40.3 seconds remaining in the second period, the Predators tied the game on a power play goal from Colin Wilson . Based on how physical Game 5 was, the Predators and Ducks were lucky they didnt lose any more players.
Go forensic on the stats, the lineups, the rotations, the play calls if you like, it's going to come down to the same endpoint. It was one of the most complete Finals games he's ever played, and that catalog is reasonably extensive by now.
