The Predators have a chance to even the Stanley Cup Final series against the Penguins in Game 4. Pittsburgh leads the series 2-1 as both teams have kept home ice as the series’ shift to Nashville for Game 3 yielded a dominant 5-1 victory for the Predators.
Five different Nashville skaters scored in Game 3, while Predators goalie Pekka Rinne recorded 27 saves on 28 shots on goal after allowing eight goals in the first two games.
The Penguins won the Stanley Cup last year after winning Games 1 and 2 at home, losing Game 3 on the road and then winning Game 4. Pittsburgh will hope to repeat that recipe for success while Nashville has its sights set on winning its first Cup.
