Predators take Game 4 win over Penguins to even Stanley Cup Final

Then Gaudreau, who scored his first career National Hockey League goal in Game 1, scored 42 seconds later to put Nashville ahead with his wrister from the high slot, taking advantage of a screen by Penguins defenseman Ian Cole to beat Murray glove-side.

Opportunity Knocks: It wasn't much of a secret that Nashville outplayed Pittsburgh for much of games 1 and 2, but the Penguins were the far more opportunistic team as they capitalized on their chances (usually in quick succession). They ruled Gaudreau's wraparound attempt slid the puck just over the line before Murray stopped it, giving Nashville a 2-1 lead 3:45 into the second. The goal was his first in the Final since June 4, 2009, but it wasn't enough as the Penguins lost back-to-back games for only the second time in the postseason. The series is now tied at 2-2.

Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin heard all the questions about not getting a shot on goal in Game 3.

"He likes the attention and things like that so I mean if he wants to make stuff up, ... what can I do?"

The ceremony came two days after the Predators defeated the Penguins 5-1 in Game 3. The Penguins mounted some pressure, getting a few shots on goal, and then the Preds countered with pressure of their own.

Not long afterward, Crosby took the burden off Pittsburgh's overwhelmed blue line, racing across the ice (while Nashville's Ryan Ellis overpursued the puck) and driving all the way to the net, where he outdid Rinne with patience and a shot off the post that tied the game at one. Gaudreau is the third undrafted rookie since 1979 to score at least three goals in the Finals.

"Obviously, it's hard to win when you score one goal, but having said that, I thought tonight of all the games we played, we generated the most chances and the highest quality", Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan said.

Arvidsson's third goal of the playoffs gave the Predators a 3-1 lead at the 13:08 mark, moving them a step closer toward evening the Stanley Cup Final at two games apiece.

"It's simple. We've got to go home and win a game", Crosby said. "We're going to take that into the next game".

You know, just in case anyone was thinking about splitting their vote and putting Pittsburgh's Matt Murray AND Marc-Andre Fleury, who have shared the net this season, on the same ballot.

Nashville's Calle Jarnkrok was the first to get the puck past Matt Murray, scoring 5:09 into the first period. The Predators are now 8-1 at home in the playoffs.

The Predators did not score while shorthanded in Game 3, but the fact that the Penguins are being kept on their heels while up a man is hugely damaging.

One. Two. Three. Four saves, with the last being absolutely unreal.

Police estimated more than 50,000 turned out for the first Stanley Cup Final game in Tennessee on Saturday night. It was the eighth time Malkin, with his NHL-best 26 points this postseason, was held without a shot.

Suffice to say, things are different in 2017, and the way their series against the Predators has gone through four games, the Penguins may need Murray to be better than solid. He was outplayed by Pekka Rinne, who's sure made good on his pledge to "bury" Games 1 and 2.
