The Predators and Pittsburgh Penguins are scheduled to play Game 3 of the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Finals Saturday, June 3 at the arena. The first, a ricochet off Nashville defenseman Mattias Ekholm, gave the Penguins a 3-0 lead with 17 seconds left in the first period.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have taken a 2-0 lead over the Nashville Predators in the Stanley Cup Final. Zach Smith, of Crafton, Pa., covers his Stanley Cup replica as he waits in the rain outside PPG Paints Arena before Game 2 of the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Final between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Nashville Predators, Wedne.

Predators fans who don't already have tickets to the big game could certainly benefit from the giveaway since they likely won't have any money leftover to spend on souvenirs.

The 23-year-old Swedish forward scored his first Stanley Cup Final goal and, boy, it was a beauty. "It doesn't matter what happened in the last one", Murray said. The first came from Jake Guentzel who threw a rebound towards Pekka Rinne, which inexplicably went in.

Guentzel broke the tie 10 seconds into the third period by converting the rebound of a shot by Bryan Rust. "We see what kind of group and character we have to bounce back". "There's things we could've done. all three goals in the third period were odd-man rushes".

The first period unspooled with Pittsburgh matching its entire output from Game 1, spraying Rinne from all over, which he probably did not mind. Wilson was credited with his third of the playoffs just over 3 minutes later when a centering pass caromed off Nashville's Vernon Fiddler and by Rinne. The Penguins lead the series 1-0. Fans weren't shy about booing the penalty on Kunitz because they thought P.K. Subban had exaggerated the impact of the blow, and they booed him whenever he touched the puck. The OCRegister wrote about the Penguins Game 2 victory and quoted Guentzel on his performance throughout these playoffs.

Trump says pulling out of Paris climate accord best for US
So even if the USA were to withdraw from the accord, many said the U.S.is not likely to stop reducing its carbon pollution. While traveling overseas last week, Trump was repeatedly pressed to stay in the deal by European leaders and Pope Francis.

"We didn't do a great job of (shooting), but we made them count", Penguins captain Sidney Crosby said.

"Pekka has been excellent for us all year long, like I said", he said. He allowed four goals for the second consecutive game Wednesday, tying his playoff-high. Yet his iffy play in Game 1 continued a troubling trend. NBC was the No. 1 network overall in both markets during the game. They had been out-shot 32-19 at that point.

Guentzel wasn't done. Just ten seconds into the third period, the rookie netted his second goal of the night, and his 12th of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs. "Even in the second we had chances but couldn't get a goal".

The Penguins, as they've done when pressed throughout the postseason, responded nearly immediately. And Waddell knew that it worked, because he talked to his in-laws for 20 minutes with it in his trousers without them suspecting a thing. They also understand they can't afford to have their offense go dormant for almost two periods. While the final results weren't pretty, Nashville still played well enough in Pittsburgh to still be confident coming home where they're 7-1 during the playoffs and have lost just four home games overall since the start of March.

Catfish tossing has been a tradition of the Predators since 2003, and Metro Nashville police say that no one has been prosectuted since the tradition began.
