STANLEY CUP FINALS GAME 3- Pittsburgh @ Nashville

The Nashville Predators posted a huge 5-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final. 17,283 inside and a crowd estimated at over 30,000 outside, watching the game on screens set up on Broadway. The Penguins can still put a stranglehold on the series by winning Game 4 and setting up a clinching scenario in Game 5.

Crosby didn't address the alleged comments after the game, but Predators goalie Pekka Rinne defended his teammate's hygiene.

And after so much criticism over the first two games, veteran netminder Pekka Rinne stood tall in net for Nashville and actually got a curtain call as one of the three stars on the night.

Odds: Penguins (+115) and Predators (-137), according to Oddsshark. Sending a message for next game? Yes, he got the win, but he looked a little "off". Kessel jumped into the fray and without dropping his gloves or stick, earned an instigator penalty that was uncalled. They did a great job late in keeping control of a potential powder keg that could've exploded easiy. An old junker decorated in the logo and colors of the opposing team each series, fans pay for the opportunity - some might say privilege - to take a sledgehammer to the helpless vehicle. He can be beaten, despite all the excuses that the media has given him...

They had better be, and the Penguins, who have really played only two good periods in this series, had better start asserting themselves.

If they do, they'll put a lid on the building and the series. By the time the Predators mascot, Gnash, was rappelling down from the rafters just before puck drop, the seventh man was plenty ready for the biggest hockey game in the city's history. Then Gaudreau, who scored his first career National Hockey League goal in Game 1, scored 42 seconds later to put Nashville ahead with his wrister from the high slot, taking advantage of a screen by Penguins defenseman Ian Cole to beat Murray glove-side. "I can't even see you all", Alan Jackson said as he addressed the crowd between songs.

The Bad - Another period of scramble at the start... for once, the Preds didn't pay for it with a loss.

The Penguins have to improve special teams.

- Overnight ratings are in...

The party certainly went on well into the night. Then he gave up five goals in the span of 15 shots and the catfish watch was on.

- The TV Timeouts were awesome last night... the first one lifted the team in no uncertain terms.

"I used Listerine before the game", Subban continued. He has been an awesome piece of the Predators attack in the playoffs. Police estimated more than 50,000 turned out to mark a bit of history Saturday night as Nashville hosted the first Stanley Cup Final game ever played in Tennessee. Radio on 102.5 the Game.

"So I don't know what he's talking about". "I don't think we executed as well as we can".
