Cullen's calm voice will be heard in locker room before Game 6

After dropping two straight in Pittsburgh, the Predators held serve at home, and captured two lopsided victories to square the series. "Coach drove the point of cementing your own legacy", forward Chris Kunitz said.

After overrunning Nashville in its 6-0 win in Game 5 with three goals in each of the first two periods, Pittsburgh found far more resistance in this one.

The Penguins and Predators have provided plenty of drama, from the roller-coaster play of Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne to the running feud between Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby and P.K. Subban.

Bob McKenzie has floated that with Bob Boughner getting hired in Florida, the top contenders for the Buffalo job appear to be Phil Housley, Tocchet and Martin, so just on math it does seem like Pittsburgh might have more turnover as guys continue to reap the benefits of success and get to grow in their job opportunities. Nashville Predators goalie Pekka Rinne watches from the bench during the second period in Game 5 of the team's NHL hockey Stanley Cup Final against the Pittsburgh Penguins, Thursday, June 8, 2017, in Pittsburgh.

The Predators say their watch party at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville was sold out nearly an hour before puck drop, with thousands of fans inside. The Predators, facing elimination for the first time during the playoffs, will depend on their home-ice advantage to extend their season. For now anyway. If the first four games of an unpredictable series have dictated anything, it's that momentum is just one shot away.

Carl Hagelin iced the game for Pittsburgh with an empty-net goal with 14 seconds to go in regulation. He, too, had struggled this postseason, joining Hornqvist on the fourth line. But they know the task will be ultra-hard here, where the Predators took Games Three and Four by a combined 9-2 count. Another game like this and he won't just win a second straight Stanley Cup; he could also walk away with another Conn Smythe Trophy. Ryan Ellis and Mattias Eckholm have both been caught pinching on plays that have gone the other way for easy two on one goals in Pittsburgh. Top goaltender Matt Murray missed the first two playoff series with an undisclosed lower-body injury, and in this series, center Nick Bonino has been on crutches with a broken tibia.

Additionally, the House bill would phase out the expansion of Medicaid. "We're going to have a vote one way or the other", Sen. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) speaks to Reuters during an interview in Washington, U.S., May 24, 2017.

She should know, because for the first time ever on Wednesday night, the show had to move from its home at the Bridgestone Arena due to the team's hot run in the finals. We'll find out around 7:20 P.M. when the teams go through the pregame skate. Fortunately, fans of the National Hockey League have been treated to a back-and-forth Stanley Cup Final that has been exciting throughout. "To be able to do this, it's really rewarding". Justin Schultz, Bryan Rust and Conor Sheary also scored for the Penguins, who have outscored Nashville 15-4 in Pittsburgh. The last nine months have only emphasized Crosby's resilience.

"'Desperate' is a amusing word for me because it gets thrown around our game a lot", Sullivan said.

"It's important that we stay in the moment", Sullivan said today. After laying a thorough beating on the Preds Thursday night, they will look to win back to back Cups tonight, while Nashville will desperately try to extend the series to a 7th game in Pittsburgh, and while it's a no brainer that they've lost all 3 there in this series, anything can happen in a one game victor take all scenario.

Dumoulin is the 5th Eagle to win more than 1 Stanley Cup as a player. I'm tempted to side with the Penguins to close this out because they are a veteran team that's won big games on the road and the last thing they want is a game seven for the cup where anything can happen. Faking left, Sissons shifted right, where Murray got his pad and glove across to make the save. He of four regular-season goals netted his second of the playoffs in the second period, giving the Penguins their 6-0 lead. But Subban still finished atop the possession leaderboard for the Predators. Otherwise, you can catch the Predators on the radio at 102.5.

Home ice domination: No team has lost at home in this series.
