Pens' Nick Bonino on crutches, game-time decision for Game 3

Bonino went to the locker room but returned to finish the game. It includes the arrival of Barry Trotz, and the departure of Barry Trotz.

With nearly everyone banged up at this time of year, perhaps it doesn't hurt either team to have some time off. He owns just about every franchise goaltending record.

First it's the Penguins trying to repeat playing against a team that hadn't been to a Final in a long time (or ever in the way of the Predators).

Rinne went into the final with the stingiest numbers in net this postseason. It could easily be a 2-0 series advantage for Nashville.

So, he ordered 80 whole catfish, which are free to any Nashville fan with a ticket to Games 3 or 4. Another loss would mean an 0-3 series deficit. "I'm just in the right spot at the right time and I'm pretty thankful they're going in", Guentzel said, following game two. Saros has only started 20 games in his two National Hockey League season, 19 in the 2016-2017 season. "I think we've shown some glimpses of it and we've had some short periods of time with it but we've got to be better throughout a full 60-minute game".

"I think that's what the biggest takeaway is of these players going through these types of experiences in the past is", Pens head coach Mike Sullivan said, per Rosen. This season he let up 2.35 goals per game, had a.923 save percentage, and won 10 games. Rinne is at 574.

"Yeah, that's more of how we need to play", Penguins center Sidney Crosby said about the third period of Game 2. "It's fantastic support, and we really appreciate it".

Pekka Rinne closed his eyes and went back to a happy place. That was the hockey we want to play.

The 22-year-old tied the game 1-1 in the opening frame and then sparked the third period avalanche by beating Rinne 10 seconds in. "It kept getting worse", Johansen said.

"It's tough to know what it's all about until you go through it and we were able to go through it a year ago", goaltender Matt Murray said. The blueliner may have given the Pens bulletin-board material, but he doesn't care because he feels confident his team can turn it around at home. And when we're at our best, no one can beat us. "They know what to expect, and they know not to overreact or underreact to any sort of situation that presents itself through the course of this series". "But like I said, we're going to have to be at our best tomorrow, and we will".
