Charges dropped for Preds fan who threw catfish on ice in Pittsburgh

The Penguins bested the Predators 4-1 on Wednesday evening to take a commanding two-game lead in the Stanley Cup Final. The Predators took an early penalty but later got a 5-on-3 power play against the Pens in a first period that saw five total penalties called including a crosscheck by Chris Kunitz to the back of P.K. Subban's head, behind the play, against the boards, that could lead to a suspension.

Charges have been dismissed for the Nashville Predators fan who threw a catfish onto the ice in Pittsburgh during Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.

PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Nashville Predators insist goaltender Pekka Rinne isn't to blame for the 2-0 series deficit against the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins in the Stanley Cup Final. 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 age of 23, Murray has not shied away from the fact that he still gets butterflies before the start of a game.

"Everything was there that we liked but the result", Ellis said. The Predators rallied to tie before Guentzel's go-ahead goal with 3:17 remaining put the Penguins ahead to stay.

And then Crosby won the opening faceoff in the third, and Rinne sent a rebound of a Bryan Rust shot out like a pinball flipper and Guentzel buried it. He got the Predators to this point and went into the series as an MVP favorite, but allowed four goals on 11 shots in Game 1 and then got the hook in Game 2.

On the other end of the ice, Penguins goaltender Matt Murray, who is still classified as a rookie, was just all right in Game 1, but he brought his A game Wednesday night to help propel the Penguins to a 4-1 victory.

To wit: for the second straight game, we saw a three-goal period for the Penguins that included a goal off of a Predators player, a 5-on-3 goal, AND featured a goal disallowed from a review!

The amusing thing about Game 2 is that it started nearly completely the opposite of Game 1. "You look back to good games and make yourself feel good"."Well, (winning Game 2) provides affirmation that your pre-scout was on, that what you saw in prior series was something that you were going to see more of, or if teams are taking a different game plan against your particular team", Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said.

"I get nervous before pretty much any game". He made 37 saves in Game 2. "You never want to give them momentum going into the intermission". "The first game I thought we played well".

Two games, yes, but two of the most spectacularly bad goaltending performances in recent memory.

"When you lose a couple of games and get pulled, you're obviously not happy with how things went", said Rinne, who was last pulled on February 21. Pittsburgh also did it in 2009, losing both games on the road against Detroit.

The Penguins won't be able to escape the catfish at Bridgestone Arena. Fans have been throwing catfish on the ice in Nashville occasionally ever since.
