Prosecutors to drop charges in Stanley Cup dead catfish toss

But the biggest takeaway on this night was that the Penguins are the most explosive team in hockey, at times breathtaking with their quick-strike ability.

With the game tied 1-1 through two periods on goals by Pontus Aberg and Guentzel, it took just 10 seconds into the third for Guentzel - who scored the victor in Game 1 - to get his second of the night. "We've got to work harder, compete a little harder, but we got some timely goals". "His skill-set combined with the way he works allows him to get the chances he does and not only score from the perimeter, but he goes to those tough areas to earn those goals".

Pittsburgh Penguins' Jake Guentzel (59) celebrates his second goal of the night against the Nashville Predators. He faced eight of those shots in the first period and then saw none in the second period, the first time a team held an opponent without a shot in a Stanley Cup Final since the league began tracking shots on goal in 1958. High demand made attending Stanley Cup games in Pittsburgh cheaper than it would be in Nashville for some fans. The Penguins were firing at will at Rinne and scored on a power play shot by Guentzel at 16:26 in the first period.

Now the Predators have to worry about the series slipping away. 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. Sure, two of them deflected off defenders' legs and another was a 5-on-3 goal, but clearly, Rinne has played his worst hockey of the postseason in these last two games. We want more. It's our game.

As good as Pittsburgh has played, and they are incredible, I don't think they are at top form yet in this series.

The Predators needed Rinne to stay in peak form to beat the Penguins. They were also decimated by a flu bug that had players throwing up all over the place due to a pregame meal the night before in Detroit where the team was given "tainted chicken soup".

Ellis scored a power-play goal through a Viktor Arvidsson screen midway through the second period, cutting the deficit to 3-1. It was the 23-year-old's second goal of the playoffs.

The Predators actually had a lead in this game, if you can believe it.

Nashville thought it scored the opening goal midway through the first period when Subban's wrist shot from the point got by Murray. But the difference in the series has been goaltending and Rinne, specifically, getting outplayed by Murray.

Rinne also gave up a huge rebound to Guentzel on the Penguins' game victor 10 seconds into the third period. "We can't just look at the numbers and say, 'Yeah, we're winning all the numbers, but the scoreboard'". At the other end, Rinne looked like he couldn't wait for the period to end.

It's not much. Unless you're playing the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Pittsburgh downplayed the notion it was worn out, figuring adrenaline and a shot at making history would make up for any lack of jump while playing their 108th game in the last calendar year.

The game had an average audience of 3.278 million viewers on TV, which was up 27% from last year's Final between the Penguins and the San Jose Sharks.
