Wilson could return for Predators in Game 5 of Cup Final

Predators' Colton Sissons not suspended for cross-check on Maatta

Sidney Crosby, who was particularly strong early in the game, had three assists.

Pittsburgh Penguins' goalie Matt Murray (C) makes a glove save against the Nashville Predators in Game 4 Stanley Cup Finals at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville Tuesday. "He doesn't just show up to the rink and put his equipment on". With no goals in his last six games, someone asked Kessel if he was exhausted. Even Ron Hainsey chipped in with a goal.

Asked twice Tuesday if he planned on reevaluating his goaltending situation after Matt Murray allowed eight goals in Nashville, Sullivan stressed "we haven't lost games because of our goaltending".

Sure, Crosby dished out three assists in Pittsburgh's lopsided 6-0 win to give the Penguins a 3-2 lead in their increasingly coarse series with the Predators.

"Everyone knows we have more to give". "We know we're going to be facing a desperate team".

"If necessary we will help move the crowds out of the streets and help move them on their way home", Trapp said.

The Penguins have enjoyed plenty of support from the Steelers, in the same way that the Predators have enjoyed plenty of support from the Titans.

It's beyond dispute that home ice has been an advantage for the Penguins this season. Or rather, it belonged to the Penguins captain. The five goals were the most he's ever given up in the postseason. The rest of the team aptly followed. So Crosby started playing whack a mole with Subban's head, resulting in offsetting minor penalties that only seemed to send another jolt through the Pittsburgh bench.

It ended with haymaker after haymaker - both literal and proverbial - from Sidney Crosby and the rest of the resilient Pittsburgh Penguins.

"I think it's just the comfort of being in your own building", Predators forward Harry Zolnierczyk said before the game when asked if home ice advantage was more than a talking point for pundits. "We continued to do that".




"It's a good game but it's still not done", Malkin said. The two stars became tangled up behind the Nashville goal late in the first with Crosby on top. After the third goal went by him to end the period, his night was over after allowing three goals on nine shots.

Juuse Saros replaced Rinne for the start of the second and promptly got scored upon. It was only 3-0, dude, plenty of time for the Preds to launch a comeback and for Rinne to eliminate some of the doubt heading into a Game 7, if there is one.

The Predators are in a 3-2 hole with Game 6 coming up Sunday night in Nashville.

In the second period, Crosby found Conor Sheary with a backhand pass from behind the net to make it 4-0.

Saros ended the evening with 12 saves on 15 shots. I don't know why hockey people even bother with the relocation bluff anymore.

"We've got a great, supportive fan base", coach Mike Sullivan said. And when he's vocal, it pushes you to be better. The Penguins believe he remains the same player and the same person every shift, every night. The defence, which had been the team's biggest weak spot in the series, moved the puck easily and efficiency. Now, they have to do it again.

"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.

A position of strength could turn into a position of weakness.

After an offensive onslaught, the Pittsburgh Penguins are one win away from repeating as Stanley Cup champions.

This year, the Penguins have struggled through a host of injuries, yet they've managed to outlast the Capitals in the second round and the Senators in the third round, both in seven games. "Not that I will". Yanking him after 20 minutes was like taking a knee and admitting he can't win there... "I'm not breaking earth-shattering news: The NBA Playoffs have not been very good".
