The Nashville Predators' Catfish-Throwing Fan Could Go To Jail

Sure, the Penguins have been outshot and outhit in both games this series, but what does that matter?

Nashville Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne got off to a hot start in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final, but after his team spotted him a 1-0 lead in the first period on Wednesday, Rinne gave it right back when Jake Guentzel squeaked it through an impossible glimmer of light under his arm. You got Crosby - magic. "You look back to good games and make yourself feel good".

Just before word Wednesday morning that the charges would be dropped against Waddell, a Tennessee House member indicated he was drafting a proclamation honoring the team and the fan. If it had been ruled a good goal, the momentum of the game would have immediately swung to the Preds and taken the air out of the building under five minutes into the game. "We're going to feed off that energy and we're going to be ready". The Penguins lead the best-of-seven series 2-0. It's hard to see anything changing should Rinne remain the starting goaltender, and if the Predators fall behind 3-0 in the series, they'd be facing a near-impossible mountain to climb to win their first Stanley Cup. "But, no, (Sullivan) doesn't let us know about (an upcoming double shift)". "I think we're looking forward to playing in front of our fans".

"Obviously, it's a mental thing", said Rinne, who entered the Stanley Cup final with a 1.70 goals-against average and a.941 save percentage. I waited a long time and it's my first time having a chance to play for the Cup.

"The impact of that moment and then the chain of events that happened after that with the penalty kills I think changed the course of the game", Predators coach Peter Laviolette said.

It hasn't been easy against Pittsburgh. "And then, like an ignorant redneck, I thought, 'Wouldn't it be awesome to throw a catfish on the ice at this game?'" Those numbers ballooned after the first two games against the Penguins. Nashville proved that they can hold Pittsburgh scoreless for more than half an hour.

"It's not the situation we wanted coming here", said Rinne. "There's things we could've done. all three goals in the third period were odd-man rushes".

Guentzel's second tally was part of a three-goal third period that helped swing the game in Pittsburgh's favor.

Nick Bonino scored twice, including and empty-net goal, while Evgeni Malkin and Conor Sheary scored in the first period for Pittsburgh.

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.

That was enough to end Rinne's night, but the Predators aren't blaming their goaltender for the series deficit.
