"My record is Cups" - Malkin focused on titles, not stardom

"My record is Cups" - Malkin focused on titles, not stardom

Conor Sheary then tapped into an empty net after a sublime pass from Chris Kunitz to make it 2-0 as the Predators struggled to get a foothold in the game. The way we need to play was, for the most part, we did the right things out there. This allowed the Predators to grab momentum and tie up the game, making it more exciting for fans but also making more work for the Penguins in what could have been an easier win without the mental lapses.

How else do you explain that Evgeni Malkin scored his first power-play goal of the playoffs, off the glove of goalie Pekka Rinne? But the Penguins generated at least 35 shots in each of the last four games of their seven-game win over the Senators in the Eastern Conference final, including a combined 88 shots in the last two games. "Our guys have shown that they've been able - especially down the stretch and in the playoffs, after a game that doesn't go our way - they've been able to respond".

The Most Pittsburgh Game Ever?

Predators counterpart Peter Laviolette said a disallowed goal in the first period had proved decisive. He even went more than a period without facing a single shot, which may have worked against him in the end as he was, more or less, taken out of the game. How do you score if you can't get a shot on goal?

The Penguins will look towards their star players to boost them once again to victory. "It felt like we were getting some decent looks and maybe we missed the net or we didn't quite execute on a play".

"I like to skate in the morning (on game days)", Murray said.

Jake Guentzel has been a great story all season long, and that continues to be the case during the playoffs.

The Penguins won, but weren't wholly happy because they blew a three-goal lead and went 37 minutes without a shot on goal.

He leads playoff scorers in goals (10) and game-winners (four), numbers he's trying to grasp even as the crowds around his locker are taking on Crosby-like proportions.

Barry and Peduto have issued a friendly wager over the Stanley Cup Final, with the losing mayor having to donate to a veterans charity in the winning city.

They could chuckle about it afterward because, however ugly, the Pittsburgh Penguins managed to come away with a win. I think one of the strengths of this team is the quick-strike ability.

Perhaps all we really learned last night is that these Predators, injuries and all, can MORE THAN play with this Penguins teams.and we learned the Penguins are a very opportunistic bunch.

"I think we create chances", Crosby said.
