Penguins head home upbeat despite 0-fer in Nashville

"Just me and Phil, we need to bring our game and help the team win". "He definitely belongs, and he's been a huge part of our success".

The Penguins have played almost every type of game in the last month - they've been embarrassed, they've done the embarrassing and ran teams out of the building, they've won 1-0 games and they've won games in overtime.

The defending champion Penguins will host Game 5 on Thursday night, hoping home ice is an advantage after being outscored 9-2 in losing the two games in Nashville after averaging 4.5 goals in winning the first two. "It's nice to have your fans cheering you on and screaming and giving you extra energy, but at the same time, I think maybe we deserved to win one of the first two games and we felt we played good", he said. "It's a great feeling". "I felt really good that game, I was finding pucks through traffic pretty well for the most part ... that's the ideal example, you can't always go one way or the other [mentally] by the result". Calle Jarnkrok made the most of a loose puck in the crease to give his team a 1-0 lead with six minutes to go in the first period, and the play was upheld following an unsuccessful Mike Sullivan challenge for goaltender interference.

They've taken care of that in the first period of Game 4.

"To be honest with you, I think about it a lot", Rinne told us shortly before the Predators began an unthinkable sweep of the Chicago Blackhawks. Former NBA star and TV commentator Charles Barkley also was on hand, accepting NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman's invitation to watch in person.

You need surprises to win the Stanley Cup.

"Of course I want more", Malkin said.

Craig Smith ricocheted a puck off Murray's pads that Jarnkrok tapped in at 14:51 to start the fans yelling louder.

Just 66 seconds later, Crosby tied it up for Pittsburgh on a dazzling breakaway. He trails only Malkin and Crosby with 20 points this post-season and appears due to come through, posting maybe his finest game of the final in a Game 4 loss with eight attempts on goal.


Rinne's most timely save may have been his stop on Chris Kunitz's breakaway at 3:29 of the second. The first, from Frederick Gaudreau three minutes and change into the period, nearly didn't count, as his wraparound attempt seemed to be held off the line by Matt Murray for 35 seconds before the scorer's box sounded the horn to stop play. When the Penguins had just three goals during the first three games of the Eastern Conference finals against Ottawa last month, they scored 10 over the next two to take control.

"I heard it on the bench that it was possibly in the net", Gaudreau said.

"I thought I was OK in Game 3, obviously not great".

There is only so much the Penguins can do to mask their obvious disadvantage on defense.

Viktor Arvidsson have given Nashville a two-goal lead over Pittsburgh after two periods in Game 4.

"Growing up, you watch him, so to be honest it's pretty special", said Guentzel, whose 13 postseason goals are one off the National Hockey League playoff rookie record set by Dino Ciccarelli with the Minnesota North Stars in 1981. "Our guys are hungry, but we respect the fact they've done it, and they're hungry". Again, the Predators went the other way and made it 3-1 with Arvidsson beating Murray on a breakaway.

There were numerous occasions where the Predators were beating the Penguins to the puck. Predators Coach Peter Laviolette has a policy of not discussing lineup changes and wouldn't say if Wilson will return after missing four games because of a lower-body injury.

Forsberg sealed the win with an empty-netter with 3:23 left.

Notes: Fisher, scoreless until the Final, now has four points with his fourth on his 37th birthday.
