Pittsburgh Penguins G Matt Murray to start Game 5 vs. Nashville Predators

He also managed to pull through for the Penguins in the Stanley Cup Finals last season, after winning the first two games and losing Game 3. "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. Murray, who was penciled to start in the postseason but was out with an injury, took his place and hasn't looked back. Matt Murray (22 saves) had stopped Craig Smith's initial deflection of Austin Watson's shot, but Jarnkrok's follow gave him five points - one goal and four assists - in the past five games. We've got - we think, one of the strengths of our team is in our goaltending position.

The Penguins could have had more.

NBC Sports reported an average of 4.23 million viewers through the first four games of the final, up 24 percent from past year.

8 p.m. - After the first period, the Penguins have a 3-0 lead on the Predators.

Former NBA All-Star turned TV commentator Charles Barkley joined National Hockey League commissioner Gary Bettman in watching the game from a skybox in sold-out Bridgestone Arena.

"If a catfish slips out on the ice, what are you going to do?"

All of it can be a bit overwhelming, but the Penguins are pretty excited to have the hockey world see what their crowd can do. "I thought tonight of all nights, we generated the most chances of the highest quality".

"We've got some confidence". They are so supportive of our group. Pittsburgh's Jake Guentzel did it in the first two games of this series and Roy Conacher did it for Boston in Games 3, 4 and 5 against Toronto in 1939.


"This is obviously a great win, a great feeling", said Hainsey, "but come tomorrow it's got to be parked because we have to get one more win". They consistently create scoring chances for their forwards while also generating their own offense; something that Letang has been doing for years. If they play like they did in Nashville, it won't matter how the forwards play and it won't matter who's in net, because the series will be over. 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. "That is what's good". Rinne's defense has been up to the task in the last two contests, but P.K. Subban's availability for Game 5 could be in question as the blue-liner was not on the ice to begin practice Wednesday after blocking Evgeni Malkin's shot late the third period in Game 4. Since the Predators are headed back to Bridgestone Arena for Game 6, Rinne will nearly certainly be back in the net.

So, the fact that Crosby once again showed up and played arguably his best game of the playoffs on Thursday wasn't necessarily the story in a 6-0 Game 5. From that, when they did get behind us, not only was there a goal by Crosby, but there was a chance, then a second chance, a third chance, sometimes a fourth chance.

"We know we can be a lot better", Predators' captain Mike Fisher said. Just play the same. "It's the intensity he brings, and that's the kind of intensity we want to bring to our game every night". I think we can learn from that ... it's impossible not to think about.

Fortunately for these two, who presumably have jobs and families and friends on social media, Harris and his producers had the good sense to end the segment before things got PG-13. "Score more for sure".

The Penguins have home ice, which has proven to play a bigger role than expected in these Finals.

"It's about time", he said.

"We have a short summer, but it is a fun summer". "I know it's a nasty hole to be in". It is not like only we are exhausted. I am not exhausted myself.
