ANAHEIM 5 NASHVILLE 3 (Series tied 1-1)
He's been one of the reasons the Predators are 3 wins away from the Stanley Cup Finals, but last night's loss really needs to be hung on Pekka Rinne. It's hard to get too upset if you're a Preds fan, as Rinne has been the best goaltender in the playoffs, but he stunk the joint up last night and the series is tied as a result. The frustrating part for Nashville has to be that if RInne turns in a decent performance, they win last night because John Gibson was shaky as hell. Ryan Getzlaf continues to rack up the points with two more assists last night, and Jakob Silfverberg scored his 9th of the post-season in the win.
While they outplayed the Penguins in Game 1, the Senators are capable of playing much better, especially defensively, and they'll need to do that tonight as the Pittsburgh Penguins look to avoid heading to Ottawa down two games to none. The Penguins meanwhile are going to be looking to get more shots on Craig Anderson, and we can expect Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin to lead the way in trying to open up shooting lanes, something Ottawa has done a great job clogging up thus far. The Penguins will also look to take advantage of PP chances, and as they have all playoffs use their speed to draw calls.
