The defending champion Penguins own a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series, which shifts to Nashville for Game 3 on Saturday.
In the third period of Game 2, the Preds' hope turned into dread in an instant - or, to be precise, in 10 seconds, which is how long it took Penguins rookie Jake Guentzel to score the go-ahead goal. Guentzel pounced on a rebound from Pekka Rinne, and just passed it into the net past the goaltender.
The Predators have controlled the action for much of the first two games of the Stanley Cup Final, but the explosive Penguins have continued their opportunistic playoff run, making their chances count for a 2-0 series lead.

"Watching the game, obviously I really want to be out there, just being a part of the team and stuff", said Johansen, who spoke to reporters for the first time since suffering acute compartment syndrome in the Western Conference final. It got even worse in Game 2, when the Nashville Predators goalie was pulled after allowing four goals on 25 shots in a 4-1 loss on Wednesday. "I think it serves a objective, I don't know if it tells the whole story, but if you see or evaluate things a certain way, sometimes it can confirm or deny what happened out there".
"Alan Jackson is a staple in the Smashville community", says Nashville Predators President and CEO Sean Henry, "and we know he'll bring the excitement of our great city's first ever Stanley Cup Final game to the stage on Saturday".
"I said it a couple days ago when everybody was asking about (Mike) Fisher and (Craig) Smith", Laviolette said on Thursday. "We're going to feed off that energy and we're going to be ready". The goalie who had been so dominant in the playoffs has now given up eight goals on 36 shots and has a.777 save percentage in the Stanley Cup final. The Penguins took all four games from a Blackhawks team that had won 11 straight games going into the Stanley Cup Final.
It takes a lot to throw the Pittsburgh Penguins off their game. Pittsburgh also did it in 2009, losing both games on the road against Detroit.
Only if Rinne turns back into Rinne. You can see how good of a player he is, we can move him up and down the lineup.
While the Nashville Predators are down 0-2 in the Stanley Cup final, Johansen said he is confident that the team doesn't need him to be playing in order to come back and win. Murray leads all goaltenders in the 2017 playoffs with an overall save percentage of.952 and a GAA of 1.54.

It hasn't been easy against Pittsburgh.

"We were leaving an odd-man numbered rush", said Laviolette. All three goals in the third period, we could have done something better.
Jake Guentzel scored 10 seconds into the third period to put Pittsburgh in front.
Rinne entered the game leading the playoffs in wins (12) and goals-against average (1.83) while posting a.934 save percentage. Pittsburgh scored soon after to make it 3-1, a goal that was credited to Scott Wilson, who got a piece of the puck before it went off the skate of Nashville forward Vernon Fiddler and between Rinne's pads. It was Guentzel's 12th goal of the playoffs, which is the most of any American-born rookie in playoff history and just two behind Dino Ciccarelli's all-time rookie record of 14.
That was enough to end Rinne's night, but the Predators aren't blaming their goaltender for the series deficit.
"It's not the situation we wanted coming here", said Rinne. "It's not his fault, by any means".
