Penguins, Predators each look to seize momentum in Game 5


PITTSBURGH, PA - MAY 08: Andre Burakovsky #65 of the Washington Capitals skates against Chad Ruhwedel #2 of the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game Six of the Eastern Conference Second Round during the 2017 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at PPG PAINTS Arena on May 8, 2017 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. "They were huge all night, especially at the start". Each has played 40 playoff games for Nashville, far fewer than David Legwand (47 games) and Shea Weber (59 games), who shared the team record of 13 playoff goals at the start of this year. The Pens are undoubtedly hoping that Sid the Kid's Game 4 tally will give him some momentum the rest of the way.

Predators coach Peter Laviolette sensibly stuck with Rinne after the Finn's flawed performances and was rewarded with two exceptional efforts. The Penguins have played the entire postseason without their top defenseman. "For us, this is our home, and putting the show together is about music and current events, and it all collided last night in our city, so we had to tell that story". "Every time I was trying to get better mentally".

Not that the Penguins gave them much of a chance. "It's an opportunity for us to get on the ice, play the best game that we can play and put ourselves in a position to accomplish the ultimate goal, and I think that's how our team is certainly looking at it, that this is a great challenge and it's a great opportunity and we're excited about it".

The Predators are in a 3-2 hole with Game 6 coming up Sunday night in Nashville.

Trump reacts to Comey testimony (on Twitter, of course)
Trump has been unusually silent on Twitter and declined to answer shouted questions from reporters Thursday about the testimony. He also said that any other explanations that have come from the White House were "lies, plain and simple", as Jessica reports.

Funny, Rinne hardly looked rattled back home, holding Pittsburgh to just two goals combined as Nashville rallied to tie things up in front of a giddy home crowd that included Underwood, who was so caught up in Cup fever she overlooked husband Mike Fisher's 37th birthday.

Crosby didn't get an extra roughing penalty for slamming P.K. Subban's head on the ice in the first period and officials missed the Penguins captain throwing a water bottle onto the ice during the second period as Pittsburgh opened a 5-0 lead.

"I see the numbers, but if the number is not 100 per cent, or guaranteed, then it doesn't matter to me", said Rust. Sure, Evgeni Malkin still leads the playoffs in points. "It seemed hard for us to get anything going".

Ron Hainsey has made it 6-0 Penguins over the Predators late in the second period of Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Vaiko denied entry into Malaysia over 'LTTE connections'
He was sent to Puzhal Central prison by a Metropolitan Magistrate Court after he expressed his unwillngeness to execute bail bond. Vaiko showed his passport and said that he is an Indian citizen. "But the officials did not let him go", said the statement.

Instead, he played four seasons in the Western Hockey League, then five seasons at the University of Alberta, where he won a national championship in 2000. "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.

Schultz's shot from the point went through the legs of Nashville forward Auston Wilson and goaltender Pekka Rinne. Now, they have to do it again.

"You have to find the point of when a player is healthy enough to get back in the lineup and when they're not healthy enough to get back and be able to contribute and play at a level that is needed right now at this point in the season", said Laviolette. It's no wonder that Zadok is a British coronation favorite, and it's the flawless piece for the crowning of a new Stanley Cup champion team. "It's about going back and forth".

Through four games, Nashville has more goals, more shots on goal and a bit more swagger than Pittsburgh. Guentzel picked up the secondary assist on the goal, tying him for the most all-time (20) by a rookie in the playoffs.

Apple CEO to MIT grads: Tech without values is worthless
But Cook said there was plenty of useful information tech companies could share in the form of metadata. He said: "Whatever we do at Apple , we must infuse it with the humanity that we are born with".

Penguins center Nick Bonino is not on the ice for warmups prior to Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Predators and is and out again. Colin Wilson practiced with the team yesterday, taking line rushes with the fourth line, working with Frederick Gaudreau and rotating wings, P.A. Parenteau and Harry Zolnierczyk.
