But the two games held in Nashville the Penguins were held to just one goal in each game. Pittsburgh was up 3-0 after one period and it was 6-0 after two periods.

Crosby has a point in four of the five games and has a total of seven points in this series but only one goal. Sidney Crosby has scored one goal in his past seven games. Matt Murray posted his second shutout in the playoffs as he turned away all 24 shots he faced. Murray was able to silence his critics after allowing a total of eight goals in the two games held at Nashville. He missed the start of the playoffs due to injury. Marc Andre Fleury played in the early rounds but then struggled in the Washington Capitals series and was replaced for good by Murray. Matt Murray was the starting goaltender for the 2016 Pittsburgh Penguins that went on to win the Stanley Cup Finals. Nashville has been very good at home in the playoffs with only an overtime loss to Anaheim. This is the first time in the playoffs this season that the Predators were facing elimination. Nashville goalie Pekka Rinnie suffered adversity by allowing eight goals in the first two games of the Finals then limited the Penguins to one each in Game 3 and 4.
