Penguins sticking with Murray for Game 5

In Game 1, Nashville became the first team to hold an opponent without a shot on goal in a period of a Final game since the National Hockey League started tracking that statistic in 1957, and that drought lasted 37 minutes even though Pittsburgh pulled out a 5-3 win.

Conor Sheary, Phil Kessel - just as linemate Malkin predicted - and 35-year-old playoff newbie Ron Hainsey also scored for the Penguins.

Goalie Pekka Rinne has raised his level of play while being supported by a defense with a top four of Ryan Ellis, Roman Josi, Mattias Ekholm and P.K. Subban, who help Nashville control possession and set the pace. The final score tied for the seventh-biggest blowout in Cup Final history. Perhaps coach Mike Sullivan should deploy a more traditional 3 forwards and 2 defensemen look in Game 5 as opposed to the 4 forwards and 1 defensemen powerplay unit.

Zoey Bates, of Toronto, has her face painted with Pittsburgh Penguins colors outside PPG Paints Arena before Game 5 of the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Final between the Penguins and the Nashville Predators, Thursday, June 8, 2017, in Pittsburgh.

The first-period goals chased Rinne from Nashville's net; however, backup Juuse Saros ended up not faring any better. They'll need the Rinne from Games 3 and 4 to show up again. She's hoping a Stanley Cup championship will fill that void. But now, for the second time this series, the Predators must try to overcome a 3-0 deficit. Sidney Crosby, who was particularly strong early in the game, had three assists. No unsportsmanlike penalty was called and Kessel's goal stood. As the bench stood and yelled at the referee, Crosby threw a water bottle onto the ice. Game 6 is Sunday in Nashville. The Penguins host the Nashville Predators in Game 5 of the NHL Stanley Cup hockey finals on Thursday. Rinne was replaced to start the second by Saros, who was making only his second appearance of the playoffs. He went 15-6 with a.923 save percentage to win the Cup at the age of 22.

Still, Rinne is 0-5 in his career in Pittsburgh. He allowed three goals on nine shots in the first period. "Right now, our mission is to win Game 6 and then come back and play the best game of the series". The Penguins have come within two games of the first team to capture consecutive Cups in almost two decades due in large part to their resiliency.

The first-minute penalty and double-five-hole goal. However, Malkin's goal is a crippler.

In other words, it's up to Kessel to once again get the job done. Through four games, the series is tied at two games apiece, and the bad blood was flowing well before the two teams took the ice tonight.

Matt Murray stopped all 24 shots he faced Thursday to earn the shutout. The Cole Harbour, N.S., native has gotten stronger and stronger with each game of the final, setting up the Penguins lone goal in Game 3 and then scoring the only one himself in Game 4.

The Pittsburgh Penguins and Nashville Predators took the ice for Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

Those three had enough success to earn an unofficial name - the Sid and the Kids Line - before a goal drought and seeming slip in confidence moved Sheary down the lineup in the playoffs, and even out of the lineup for three games.

Though he's quickly blossomed into a high-impact player, Arvidsson was really a late bloomer.

The "11 Bruins won the last seven-game Cup final with a 4-0 win over Vancouver in the Canucks" Rogers Arena.

Pittsburgh extended it's lead 5:12 later courtesy of a backhander from Bryan Rust.

Both of Wilson's goals in these playoffs have come on the power play.

"Just three games left and we're done".

Schultz's shot from the point went through the legs of Nashville forward Auston Wilson and goaltender Pekka Rinne.
