With the series tied at two, the Penguins are going to need great goaltending that can steal a game. However, Rinne has a good shot of winning the Conn Smythe as the postseason MVP should the Predators beat the Penguins.

They've played over 200 hockey games in the past two seasons, they're missing one of the world's best defenseman and they got embarrassed in Game's 3 & 4 of the Stanley Cup Final against the 16th seeded team in the playoffs. "The first two games, I wasn't happy with my game".

'It's hard to win when you score one goal, ' Sullivan said. "So I think the times we do get the puck ... we've got to challenge them and force them to play defense".

It was a star-studded night at the game in Nashville: Country singer Dierks Bentley sang the national anthem while fellow singer Jason Aldean waved a towel to rev up the crowd.

Both teams failed to score on the power play, as the Penguins were unsuccessful on three attempts while the Preds missed on both of their man-advantage opportunities.

"That's all I wanted for my birthday", Fisher said afterward of the big win.

The acrobatic Rinne kept it tied in the early minutes of the second period, first with a scintillating stop of Jake Guentzel, then by foiling Chris Kunitz on a clearcut breakaway. Crosby faked a shot from behind the left face-off circle before moving in and finding the back of the net courtesy of a backhanded shot that bounced off the right post and off Nashville netminder Pekka Rinne.

But the Predators clamped down after that.

As play continued after Matt Murray appeared to make a stick save on Gaudreau, the arena horn sounded alerting on-ice officials to stop play. Freddy Hockey got his second consecutive game victor on an odd wraparound goal that took quite a few minutes to figure out that the puck crossed the goal line.

"I would've voted for our '87 team", Wayne Gretzky said. Crosby was out on the breakaway once again, but this time Rinne got the better of the situation. After being held without a shot in Game 3, Crosby registered 4 on Monday. "[Rinne] is incredible. In these big moments, he's come out and shined for us and he made the saves when we needed them tonight".

Arvidsson had 31 regular-season goals but had been mired in a deep slump before he finally broke out for an important insurance goal before the second period ended.

The oddsmakers believe that home ice should make the difference in Game 5, as the Penguins are minus-148 favorites according to OddsShark. With 3:23 left, Nashville sealed the victory with Filip Forsberg's empty-net goal, as "Rocky Top" played in Bridgestone Arena.

Crosby has now passed Mike Bossy, Gordie Howe, Al MacInnis and Bobby Smith for 20th in all-time playoff points.

Matt Murray had never lost back-to-back games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but that changed on Monday.

"This right here is what you come back for", said Cullen, now 40, the oldest player in this Stanley Cup Final. Still, people filled three blocks of Broadway, even with Nashville opening up a downtown amphitheater for fans to watch.

With all of the excitement, fans couldn't help but wonder what the next item to hit the ice will be.
