Then Crosby, held without a shot for only the fifth time in the postseason in his career, tied it up for Pittsburgh on a breakaway.

Welcome to the 2017 Stanley Cup Final Buzz, your daily look at the stories impacting the Pittsburgh Penguins and Nashville Predators. A quick video review confirmed that the puck did cross the line. Nashville was every bit the defending champ's equal in the opening two games only to be undone by a pair of dominant bursts by the Penguins. The Predators will travel back to Pittsburgh for Thursday night's game five.

Forsgerg's goal was his first of the Cup Finals and his first point scored over his last four games. He got the Penguins on the scoreboard late in the first, converting on a breakaway to even the score at 1 after banking the puck off of the right post and by Rinne.

What the Penguins are saying now sounds an very bad lot like what the Predators were saying after coming up empty in Pittsburgh to start the final. His injured left foot is keeping him out of a second straight game. But he banged the boards in apparent frustration and limped toward the locker room He was announced as a scratch from the lineup. Or maybe the diving blocker stop on Guentzel just before the midway point, the one that preserved Nashville's lead on the way to a 4-1 victory?

His absence leaves the Penguins without a veteran penalty killer. "But we really liked the way we played in Game 1".

"I would've voted for our '87 team", Wayne Gretzky said.

The other teams in the top 10 were the 1991-92 Pittsburgh Penguins, 1976-77 Montreal Canadiens, 1987-88 Oilers, 1986-87 Oilers, 1997-98 Detroit Red Wings, 1982-83 New York Islanders, 1977-78 Canadiens, 1983-84 Oilers and 2001-02 Detroit Red Wings. Former NBA star and TV commentator Charles Barkley also was on hand, accepting NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman's invitation to watch in person.

"If I make the save there, it could be a different game", Murray said.

And he calls Stanley Cup overtime hockey the craziest thing anyone will ever see, just one reason why he loves the sport.

"You've got trust what gets you here", Crosby said. Pittsburgh is averaging 3.0 goals per game in the playoffs, the same as the Predators.

The Predators' run through the Stanley Cup Playoffs en route to tying the best-of-7 series against the Penguins 2-2 has set television ratings records in the Nashville market.

Frederick Gaudreau sure is doing his best to earn his own locker with the Nashville Predators with a Stanley Cup Final debut for the ages. The coach asks fans to avoid both putting players and officials in danger and penalties. Rain kept the crowd outside from reaching the more than 50,000 who turned Saturday night for the first Stanley Cup Final game in Tennessee.
