They will be looking to dominate offensively on an otherwise defensive-minded Nashville Predators team.
The Penguins and Predators are tied at 1-1 going into the third period of Game 2 in the Stanley Cup Final. It's a team game, and everyone looks at shots and save percentage but forget about the quality and who we're playing. Fans weren't shy about booing the penalty on Kunitz because they thought P.K. Subban had exaggerated the impact of the blow, and they booed him whenever he touched the puck. "We see what kind of group and character we have to bounce back". The Predators, who crashed the NHL's biggest stage for the first time behind Rinne and a group of talented defenseman, were hardly intimidated by the stakes, the crowd or the defending champions, trying to become the first repeat victor since Detroit in 1998. "At the end of each period is a big point in any game, and we were able to weather that storm". The 22-year-old former stick boy for Kessel has stunned the league and forcefully inserted himself into this year's Conn Smythe conversation. Nashville also went with the same lineup as in Game 1. The Predators controlled the pace and the puck, just not the scoreboard.
Guentzel struck again 10 seconds into the third period to put Pittsburgh in front for good. After going the entire third round without scoring, the Penguins rookie has found his touch again with three in the last two games.
Pekka Rinne expunges subpar performances by visualizing good ones, and he has had plenty for Nashville in these playoffs. "For me, I treat this as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity".
"We know that's not necessarily the way you want to play the game every night", Crosby said. Asked whether his confidence was intact, Rinne said, "Of course, when you lose a couple games and get pulled you're not happy how things went, but you've got to put those things behind and focus on the things you can control". It was Guentzel's 12th goal of the playoffs, which is the most of any American-born rookie in playoff history and just two behind Dino Ciccarelli's all-time rookie record of 14.
That means that the Penguins went a combined 46:50 without one shot on net through the first two games and still won both.
While the Predators lost Game 1, many fans remained optimistic about Nashville's hopes of winning its first Stanley Cup.
