Crosby scores, Malkin shoots yet Penguins lose 4-1 to Preds

While he may not have tallied in the next two, he knows what he needs to do to improve for Game 5. "Play more with the puck".

"He likes the attention, and things like that", Crosby added. Nashville was every bit the defending champ's equal in the opening two games only to be undone by a pair of dominant bursts by the Penguins.

Hours before the Predators were set to host the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final, Laviolette on Monday asked Nashville fans to refrain from throwing catfish on the ice via a video posted on the team's official website.

Game 4 is Monday night.

"I really don't understand why he said that because I used Listerine before the game", Subban said.

The Penguins have bigger issues than talk of bad breath, and their frustration bubbled over late Saturday night as they racked up 10 penalties for 44 minutes night. However, Malkin scored in each of the first two games of the Final and leads the National Hockey League with 26 points in 23 games. He skated in on Rinne, holding the puck, faking a slap shot and then slipping one past the goalie for his eighth goal and 24th point of the playoffs.

"He's been unbelievable for us the way he's come in, and he's just been so good, timely goals and composed", Nashville captain Mike Fisher said.

Another storyline surrounding this team is that they're just too exhausted and don't have enough left in the tank after making a second straight run to the Final following a short summer, the World Cup and dealing with so many injuries.

"I had a couple of chances to hit the net a couple times where I probably should have hit the net and that happens", he said.

"Their numbers speak for themselves", Sullivan said. "I mean, they been doing that all playoffs long, so it's obviously our backbone is our defense". The results still have to bear it out on the ice, but at the moment, the Predators seem to have the kind of mental edge that can turn a series. The goal was his first in the Stanley Cup Final since June 4, 2009, a span of 12 games, but it wasn't enough as the Penguins lost two straight for the second time this postseason.

"I have puck like one second, they jump to me", Malkin said. The Penguins now are 13-3 after a playoff loss under coach Mike Sullivan, and Murray is 7-1 in playoff games started after a loss.

Murray, who entered the game 9-0 in the postseason following a Pittsburgh loss, also allowed a first period rebound goal by Calle Jarnkrok and a breakaway goal to Viktor Arvidsson in the third.

Nick Bonino sure tried to play for the Pittsburgh Penguins. He tested his injured left foot and ankle by skating Sunday but said he remains day to day.

"It's simple. We've got to go home and win a game", Crosby said.
