Penguins regroup, Predators look for road magic in Game 5

But now, Nashville must steal one on the road in order to have a chance to win the Stanley Cup on Sunday night in front of their hockey-mad home fans.

After two games, it would have been reasonable to suggest Rinne had lost the rights to a potential Conn Smythe Trophy.

Sure, technically Frederick Gaudreau and Jake Guentzel are rookies.

As one of the most frequently played songs at sporting events, it would be hard to overlook Queen's classic anthem of victory. I mean, we're playing hockey in June and it's sunny outside.

That starts with Sidney Crosby, whose breakaway score in Game 4 was surrounded by more long stretches of blown opportunities from the Pens' attack.

Just like the Preds - the underdog team that, earlier this season, few would have predicted would be playing in the Stanley Cup Final - Handel's famous piece sneaks up on you in the best way. Sheary played on Crosby's line throughout the 2016 playoffs and his stall in the dressing room was within arm's reach of Crosby's, where Sheary soaked up wisdom and insight from the superstar.

"Growing up, you watch him, so to be honest it's pretty special", said Guentzel, whose 13 postseason goals are one off the National Hockey League playoff rookie record set by Dino Ciccarelli with the Minnesota North Stars in 1981. I don't know what he was trying to do to my ankle. "I think being here on the team since '08, the way that I've seen the game grow, our organization grow, our players stepping up and developing, I've at least gained a perspective that other people haven't". Expect Rinne to be back in net for Game 6 in Nashville. Kessel had two shots on goal in Game 4 and three in Game 3 but was a minus-2 in each game.

Heady territory for an undrafted free agent once considered too small (6-feet, 179 pounds) to be an impact player at this level.

The Pittsburgh Penguins will stick with Matt Murray for Game 5 of the Stanley Cup final Thursday night (CBC, CBCSports.ca, 8 p.m. ET). "We did a good job of that and got rewarded for it". That's normal at this time of year, as players usually get the choice of practicing the day before a game or skating on the morning of the game.

"I think both teams have gotten better throughout the series, and that's expected", Predators winger James Neal said.

And the victor of game five will sit in a glorious position in what has now been reduced to a best-of-three series for Lord Stanley's Cup. After all, without him, the team is just two wins away from repeating. So did a "what, me worry?" attitude that made him seemingly immune to the stakes.

Maybe that was why he wanted to get back into the lineup so badly, even if his injury might not have been completely healed.

"You can't overthink it", Subban said of heading back on the road. "It doesn't matter if you've been there or not". "You're in the Cup final, this is what it's all about". From there he played two and a half seasons with the Stars before he was shipped to Pittsburgh during the 2010-11 season.

PITTSBURGH, PA - MAY 21: Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Mark Streit (32) skates during the third period. The total has gone over in eight of Pittsburgh's last 20 playoff games, with two pushes.

The Penguins will have a chance to do something for the first time in franchise history today. Experience helps. So does having legs that can go and go and go. Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan isn't concerned about Murray. "I didn't know the 70 percent part of it, but we are very aware this is the biggest game of the year, that's just obvious, so we are going to be ready to rock and roll tonight", said Colton Sissons.

Erixon hasn't played a game for the Penguins since coming over - spending the last two seasons with their AHL affiliate Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins notching 37 points in 119 regular season games.
