Preds even Stanley Cup Final at 2-2, beat Penguins 4-1

"We believe that we have some guys that are due to score some goals here", Sullivan said Tuesday.

Seconds later, the puck went the other way and Gaudreau scored on a wraparound to make it 2-1.

After two games of the Stanley Cup Final, the Nashville Predators, ranked last among postseason teams entering these playoffs, appeared well on their way to falling victim to a repeat title run by the Pittsburgh Penguins. In Game 4 alone, he had two breakaways, set up two great Jake Guentzel chances and scored once.

Now they head to Pittsburgh needing to find a way to win in the home ice of the defending champions after dropping Games 1 and 2.

Viktor Arvidsson gave the Predators a 3-1 lead at the 13:08 mark of the second and they were able to hold onto the cushion against Crosby and Co. These workers and former Red Wings fans made up an early part of the Predators fanbase, and since the Detroit Red Wings would throw an octopus on to the ice for luck, newly dedicated Preds supporters came up with the idea to put an undeniably Nashvillian spin on the tradition.

"He's stepped in and has done such a terrific job", Predators coach Peter Laviolette said.

The Predators tied for the league lead with 181 points from their defensemen this season, and their 50 points this postseason tops the NHL with 14 goals and 36 assists. As it is, the Final has become a best-of-three, and Nashville is guaranteed to host one more game.

The Preds got on the board, with Calle Jarnkrok getting the best of Pittsburgh goalkeeper Matthew Murray in the first period.

Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Matt Murray (30) moves the puck from behind the net against the Nashville Predators during the first period in Game 4 of the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Finals Monday, June 5, 2017, in Nashville, Tenn.

If Game 4 was any indication, it's probably a safe bet that Nashville will have some Stanley Cup babies being born in about nine months from now.

Jacob Waddell, the Predators fan who heaved the catfish onto the rink in Game 1, has been charged by police in Pittsburgh with disorderly conduct, possessing instruments of crime and disrupting meetings and processions. He allowed three goals on 25 shots and saw his record in games following a playoff loss drop to 7-1.

"Not to make more out of the travel than it is, but it's hard to leave and miss out on (their) hockey games and hockey practices", Cullen said. "I thought tonight we generated the most chances of the highest quality". In obvious pain, Subban left the ice, but he returned. So they did the next best thing: and challenged it by scoring a goal of their own 66 seconds later. He got split up from playing with Phil Kessel and managed just two shots. "We believe if we continue to try to do the right things out there, we'll score". "We played two really good games". "When they're at their best, regardless of who their opponent is, they're going to have their hands full". He likes the way Nashville played on Penguins ice, no matter that the Predators lost both.

Rinne back in the groove: After looking mediocre in the first two games of the series, Rinne has raised his game to where it was at in the first three rounds.
