Evgeni Malkin & P.K. Subban drop the gloves late in Game 2
Evgeni Malkin and P.K. Subban are players who are best known for their offensive skills rather than their ability to fight. That didn’t stop them from going at it in Wednesday’s playoff tilt though.
After being tied 1-1 through two periods, the Pittsburgh Penguins exploded for three goals just 3:28 into the third frame. With the way the game had played out, it was no surprise things got chippy. Pittsburgh even added a fourth goal in the period but that was later called back due to an offside ruling.
Pittsburgh went on to win 4-1 to take a 2-0 series lead. Jake Guentzel potted two goals while Scott Wilson and Evgeni Malkin provided the additional markers for the Pens. Pontus Aberg scored Nashville’s lone goal of the night.
Game 3 of the 2017 Stanley Cup Finals gets underway in Nashville on Saturday, June 3 at 8 p.m. ET. The Predators look to bounce back and utilize their home ice advantage. With a record of 7-1 in their own building through these playoffs and a fan base that set an NHL record for loudest arena, you can bet the Predators will be glad to be back in Tennessee.
