Country star Luke Bryan to open NHL's Game 6 broadcast

Pekka Rinne Jake Guentzel

The team, which lost 6-0 in Game 5 to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday, is down 3-2 in the best-of-seven Stanley Cup final.

"Still a lot of work to be done, but the way we played tonight, if we can build off that momentum, that's important", Crosby said after collecting three assists.

"We've already parked the game and we're focusing on game six in our building and we know the energy is going to be there".

So do the Predators, who can't get back to Smashville fast enough.

"I've never seen anything like this", said John Ettinger, a hockey fan who moved to Nashville from NY, has been to two previous NHL finals, and will attend Sunday's game.

For the first time since 2011, we've got a final that appears to have some legitimate bad blood.

Rust made it 2-0 just 6:43 into the game with a nasty backhand flip over Rinne's glove.

Rinne understands coach Peter Laviolette was trying to wake up the Predators by pulling the veteran after allowing three goals on nine shots in the first 20 minutes of Game 5. "So we understand how difficult this game is going to be and how hard that we're going to have to play and how prepared we're going to have to be ultimately to have success". It was Crosby who sent the message - with his vision, his creativity and, oddly, his fists.

But a day after the closely watched hearing , Trump struck back with an early morning tweet: "Wow, Comey is a leaker". House Speaker Paul Ryan tried to brush off the conclusion as Trump being new to the White House, but Sen.

The post says there are "several serious injuries" but did not provide further details. "He was rather shook", he said of his son. At Grady Memorial Hospital downtown, officials there said they are treating four patients in critical condition.

Critics say Trump tweets may undercut legal case
"His lawyers tried to justify it by saying it wasn't a travel ban , that it was just extreme vetting ", Cardin told CNN . Trump's administration would then be likely to file its own response before the court's nine justices decide.

"We wanted to come up with a way to cap off the Predators' last home game of the 2017 Stanley Cup Final in the most unique and memorable way", said Steve Mayer, NHL Content Officer, and Executive Vice President.

"Right now our backs are against the wall, and this is our opportunity and I think you try to do anything in your power and prepare the best you can for this one", Rinne said.

And apparently not taking any more stuff from Subban either.

I don't know about you, but "dribbling" a guys head on the ice does not sound like it would feel very good.

"He was doing some sort of UFC move on my foot", Crosby said. He took a P.K. Subban shot off his left foot/ankle in Game 2. "I was in some kind of lock there". The post-game questions, however, centred around a brief wrestling match with Predators defenceman P.K. Subban and his toss of a water bottle from the bench. Both players were given minor holding penalties. Nor do they have an Evgeni Malkin or a Phil Kessel or even a Jake Guentzel. We need to play a better game.

The Predators haven't scored a goal in 63 minutes, 23 seconds since Filip Forsberg's empty-net goal in Game 4. Crosby tied Denis Potvin for 19th in all-time playoff points, with 164, and recorded his 56th multi-point playoff game, tying Glenn Anderson and Paul Coffey for the fourth-most behind Wayne Gretzky's 108.

When Hainsey, who waited 907 regular-season games before reaching the playoffs for the first time this season, tapped in a pass from Malkin to make it 6-0, the stage was set for the Penguins to return to familiar territory.

For those seeking omens, there's this: the Penguins clinched each of their previous Cup titles on the road, winning at Minnesota in 1991, at Chicago in 1992, at Detroit in 2009 and at San Jose past year.
