The Pittsburgh Penguins lost Game 5 to Nashville due to their lacking ability to capitalize on power-play. They are 1-for-13 with four shots on goal in the Stanley Cup Finals against the Nashville Predators. The Pens were 0-for-3 with one shot on goal in a 5-1 loss in Game 3 on Saturday. Also, they were 0-for-7, smashing just two shots in Game 2.

Sidney Crosby and the Penguins would like to improve their power-play production in the Stanley Cup Final. The Nashville Predators rode the wave of a huge emotional surge that accompanied their first home Stanley Cup Final game against the Pittsburgh Penguins Saturday night.

Another runaway victory by the Predators seems unlikely because the Penguins are a veteran team that has been through the playoff wars during the Sidney Crosby era. The Pittsburgh captain is playing in the fourth Stanley Cup Final of his career, and he is competing for his third Stanley Cup championship.

One of the keys for Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and their teammates is showing improvement on the power play. The Penguins have failed to score on their last 12 power-play opportunities, and that needs to changes quickly.

The issues are most likely based on the Predators doing an excellent job while short-handed and the Pens having problems with their power-play setup.

“We’ve been doing a good job of getting our clears down the ice when we’ve had a chance,” said Nashville forward Colton Sissons, per Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “That’s huge. It takes 10 or 15 seconds off the clock every time, and we’ve given them some troubles just getting into our zone. Their breakouts, with possession, have given them some trouble.”

The Penguins spent part of their Sunday practice working on their power play, and while head coach Mike Sullivan said that his team did not do anything new during the session, there was an emphasis on shooting the puck when the opportunity was there.

In addition to the Big 2 of Crosby and Malkin, the Penguins need more from winger Phil Kessel, who has failed to score in his last five postseason games.

Penguins assistant coach Rick Tocchet said that Kessel needs to recognize the scoring opportunities he has and take them, rather than pass the puck and look to make the picture-perfect pass.

“A guy with that caliber of shot, very rarely he should be looking to pass,” Tocchet said, per Dan Rosen of NHL.com. “He’s an unselfish guy, but he’s got to be selfish in these moments. If he gets those three chances again, I think he’s got to come off the wall and really rip ’em.”

The words of Sullivan and Tocchet indicate that the Penguins need to follow the advice that is regularly shouted from the fans in the stands: “Shoot the puck.”

The oddsmakers believe the Predators will find a way to even the series up in Game 4. Nashville is a minus-154 favorite to win the game, according to OddsShark, meaning that a Nashville backer would have to risk $154 to win $100. The Penguins are plus-139 underdogs.

Hi fans Stanley Cup Finals 2017 season sputters along without Noah Syndergaard at the top of the rotation, it’s easy to wonder how different things would be if the ace known as Thor was healthy and dealing every fifth day.

But despite the way Syndergaard went down–with a lat injury, days after refusing an MRI on his bicep–it would be easy to assume that some regret would have snuck into the 24-year-old’s mind as his rehabs for a comeback.

Yet during an Stanley Cup Finals appearance on WFAN’s Boomer and Carton on Thursday, Syndergaard still didn’t want to acknowledge a correlation between the lat injury that has shelved his season and the skipped MRI.

No. No regrets from me, really,” Syndergaard said. “I knew the biceps tendinitis that was flaring up–there was no structural damage. I was able to go out there through bullpens, play catch and start that game.”

Syndergaard was asked if he second guesses his workout routine–which included adding major bulk during the offseason, something that many fans believe led to the injury.

“No. At the end end of the day I still feel really good,” Syndergaard said. “I was able to leave my workouts feeling accomplished and feel like I was doing the right thing to stay healthy. It was just a series of unfortunate events, but I’m working hard to get back on the mound.

While the righty is feeling good, there’s no timetable for a return to the Mets staff. In fact, Syndergaard doesn’t even know when he can throw a baseball.

“I still won’t be able to pick up a ball for quite some time,” Syndergaard said “I want to make sure the lat is nice and stretched out.

The Mets head into play on June 8 with a 25-32 record. Syndergaard owned a 3.29 ERA before going down with the injury.

Predators vs Penguins

Predators coach Peter Stanley Cup Finals Laviolette heard all the questions and criticism of Pekka Rinne after the goaltender’s struggles in the Stanley Cup Final in Pittsburgh. Well, Laviolette never thought of switching goalies.

A change of scenery helped Rinne and all his Nashville teammates as they dominated once again on their own ice for the biggest piece of franchise history yet.

Roman Josi and Frederick Gaudreau scored 42 seconds apart in the second period, and the Predators beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-1 Saturday night to pull within 2-1 in the best-of-seven series. Rinne started and made 27 saves against a Pittsburgh team that continued to struggle on the power play and lacked the same zip they had in winning the first two games at home.

“There was no decision,” Laviolette said of changing goalies. “He was terrific. I said that after Game 2. He’s been the backbone for our team. He’s been excellent. His game tonight was rock solid.”

PK Subban and Sidney Crosby also exchanged words in third period. Afterwards the Predators star revealed the reasons why. “He told me my breath smelled, but I mean, I don’t know, I used Listerine before the game,” Subban told NBC’s Pierre McGuire after the game. “So I don’t know what he’s talking about.”

The Predators capped the biggest party in Nashville history with a victory that gave thousands of fans inside and outside of the arena reason to celebrate. Country star Keith Urban and wife, actress Nicole Kidman, were high-fiving inside the arena and they had plenty of company. Credit Rinne for coming through with a stingy performance and helping the Predators improve to 8-1 at home this postseason.

The 6-foot-5 Finn looked so shaky in the first two games, giving up eight goals on just 36 shots. Laviolette benched him in the third period of Game 2 when Rinne gave up three goals in the first 3:28 of a 4-1 loss.

Rinne said he changed nothing and knew he was playing all the time. Nashville fans did their best to lift his spirits by chanting his name in pre-game warm-ups.

“Collectively we came into the locker room, and we were telling each other we’ve never seen anything like that,” Rinne said.

Josi also had two assists. James Neal, Craig Smith and Mattias Ekholm also scored for Nashville as the Predators worked out some frustration against the Pens.

“Like our team has done the whole playoffs against Chicago, St. Louis, Anaheim, we showed really good composure,” said Subban, who had predicted a win in Game 3. “We’re going to take that into the next game.”

“We’re disappointed we didn’t get the result, but we also understand that this is a series,” Sullivan said. “Our guys, they’ve been through this. They can draw on their experience. We’re not going to let this certainly get us down. We’re going to learn from it, move by it and get ready for the next game.”
