Late goal gives Penguins Game 1

31 May 2017

Jake Guentzel broke a shot drought of 37:09 to give the Penguins a 4-3 lead on the Predators with 3:17 left in the third period of an unusual Stanley Cup Final opener.

Guentzel then scored to bring PPG Paints Arena back to life and Bonino put away his second of the night into an empty net for the night's final score. "If we get him back that would be a huge boost for us".Woods, the 14-time major champion who ranks second with his 79 career victories on the PGA Tour, has not played for four months. "I don't think in the second period we had any pushback". "Maybe it's because they were doing some things that we couldn't respond to".

Throughout the playoffs, the 16th-seeded Nashville Predators have gained admirers due to their next-man-up mentality and suffocating brand of defense. It stood as the game victor as Bonino added another to give the Penguins a 5-3 win of the most improbable variety.

Guentzel's shot, somehow, was Pittsburgh's first in almost two full periods. Down 1-0 in the Cup Final, the Predators will look to steal home-ice advantage before hosting the first Cup Final game in franchise history on Saturday in Game 3.

Penguins win Game 1
On top of that, it is not even entirely certain that Forsberg didn't touch the puck before it completely passed the blue line. More importantly, the Predators employed their in-your-face style that has served them well in their run to the Final.

As time was running out in the first 20 minutes, Nick Bonino took matters in his own hands and slipped a shot by Pekka Rinne unassisted.

"They out-quicked us out there".

Penguins coach Mike Sullivan admitted his team had struggled for long periods. "If they do that, then they obviously were better than us". "We have to be a lot better the rest of the series". They'll take stock of Game 1 and remember that they benefitted from a called-back goal that turned the tide of the game, they scored on a 5-on-3 in the Stanley Cup final - like that happens every day - and they were complicit in one of the best goalies on the planet posting a save percentage of.636. "Jake came up right there". They both have two Stanley Cups as players, but one has a special accomplishment. Mike Sullivan, though, spotted something from his convenient position in front of the blue line. Pittsburgh coach Sullivan felt otherwise and challenged whether Filip Forsberg was offside as the Predators gained the attacking zone. But the Penguins challenged the play on the basis that it was offside and the goal was waved off after a lengthy review. The Penguins responded thereafter. "Just cuts down our opportunities to win four games". During that span, Pittsburgh feasted on a series of Nashville errors, starting with James Neal's undisciplined cross-checking penalty that, coupled with Calle Jarnkrok's interference call, left the Predators down two men.

Predictably, the Penguins scored on the power play with Evgeni Malkin's shot leaking through Rinne's glove at 15:32.

Firstly that his side's performance this season would have got him sacked at the kind of club he's been accustomed to working at. You might interpret it as a pointed signal to those he works with at City to up their game if they want to get to his level.

Just over a minute later, Chris Kunitz found Conor Sheary with a no-look pass, and Sheary promptly buried it into the open side of the net. And then, it got downright embarrassing.

The Penguins also made National Hockey League history when coach Mike Sullivan was able to get Subban's apparent goal reversed in the first period. The final stat line - five goals on 12 shots for Pittsburgh - the lowest shot total for a winning team in the Stanley Cup Final.

"I'm disappointed I didn't help my team", Rinne said. "We held onto the puck in the offensive zone". "We knew we were coming and getting our chances".

That's the Pens official website writers' Twitter feed crediting the team's video guy for being the key to the first period. Because as they learned, simply keeping the Pens from shooting much won't necessarily do it. The Predators continued to press and they were rewarded on the power play when Roman Josi's shot from the point changed direction and banked off Sissons' knee at the top of the crease and behind Murray.
