Nashville Predators vs. Pittsburgh Penguins
PPG PAINTS Arena, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

The Pittsburgh Penguins host the Ottawa Senators at PPG PAINTS Arena in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday night. The Penguins lead series, 1-0 .

Oddsmakers currently have Pittsburgh Penguins listed as 145-moneyline favorites, with the total at 5½.

The Nashville Predators played a perfect road game for 37 minutes -and lost. You really can’t play any better than outscoring your opposition 3-0 while allowing zero shots over that length of time.


The problem is that they allowed three goals on the opening eight shots of the game as Pekka Rinne had a rare off night.

And then once Nashville tied it up with six and half minutes to go the Penguins took over from there. The rookie Jake Guentzel scored his team leading tenth goal of the playoffs for the winning goal.

It spoiled a heroic comeback by the Predators and now the pressure is on to earn the split in Pittsburgh before heading home to Nashville.

Pittsburgh’s experience certainly helped them battle back at the end of the game and they’ll look to draw on that again in game two.

This is not the same dominant team that romped to the Cup last year. They started off strong this year against Columbus and the first half of the series versus Washington, but fatigue and injuries and the adding up of games is clearly catching up with them this year.

They are simply willing their way to wins at this point, but when you have Sidney Crosby leading an experienced team, that leadership factor is a major edge. Enough of one that I see them winning game two as well.
