C Sidney Crosby, who scored eight goals and dished out 19 assists in 24 playoff games, was named Conn Smythe Trophy victor as postseason most valuable player for the second straight year.
Patric Hornqvist fired Pittsburgh into the lead with 1:35 left in the final period to silence a raucous home crowd in Nashville who had roared on their team, who ultimately fell to a 4-2 loss in the series.
The question for the Penguins now is this: when was the last time a team won three Stanley Cups in a row?
It was hard for Nashville to generate enough offence to keep up in the Final.
Nashville's goalie, Pekka Rinne, had been almost unstoppable in two games at home against the Penguins last week - and Sabo said he anxious the Predators would give everything they had.
"It stings", said Predators defenseman P.K. Subban.
Nashville selected Hornqvist last overall in the 2005 draft, 229 selections after Crosby went first. "We had a lot of injuries and things like that".
"From the day I walked in, Sidney Crosby took me under his wing", Guentzel said. In doing so, the Predators became the first eighth-seeded team to sweep a first-round series since the current playoff format was introduced in 1994. They also became the NHL's first repeat champion since Detroit did it 19 years ago. You could say that trade paid off.
"I don't know", Fleury said.
The Nashville Predators are counting on Faith to give them a vocal lift for Game 6. They just couldn't find a way. "It's awesome, you know?" They won despite losing versatile center Nick Bonino to a broken tibia in Game 2.
Preds even Stanley Cup Final at 2-2, beat Penguins 4-1
Diving back to the open net, Rinne made his fourth and most important save in the flurry of chances to keep the score 2-1. NOTES: The Predators used the same lineup as they did in Game 2 , scratching LW Cody McLeod as well as C Vern Fiddler.
But it will be the perceived goal that wasn't that defines the final result of the game. And Hagelin proved again Sunday night that when he's healthy, he can be a huge difference maker. Sissons, whose nightmares will be varied this summer, somehow found himself everywhere the door could have opened: the blown call, a breakaway that he couldn't quite lift over Murray's glove, the outside of the post in the third period.
Unhappily for Nashville, referee Kevin Pollock was positioned to Murray's right and behind the goal line and thus lost sight of the puck which, by rule, obliged him to blow the whistle. He said, after the game, that it was "most likely" his final game.
"It was a pretty quick whistle", Sissons said.
Where: Bridgestone Arena, Nashville, Tenn. The Pens were without Kris Letang for the entire postseason. The likes of Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson and Keith Urban among others did not disappoint.
Continuing with the food theme and tonight's game, Wallace said they rolled out Penguins cakes on Saturday for what all fans are hoping will be a sweet victory.
They should have plenty to cheer for next season, too. While they have made the playoffs every year since, the initial years after 2009 ended in postseason disappointment.
Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final is off to a fast start in Nashville, with both teams with quick scoring chances. That duo, along with linemate Forsberg, are all in their early 20s.
Ellis plays with Roman Josi as Nashville's top defensive pair. Twelve players on the roster are due new contracts, with seven unrestricted free agents. When we're retired we think about that.

After that incident, the fan was tossed out of the game, but the Predators fought all the way back to tie the game at three. It stayed 4-1 after Pittsburgh's Matt Cullen was ruled offside following a coach's challenge of a goal by Patric Hornqvist.
