Video Highlights

Description
The Penguins had home ice advantage in the series due to their better regular season record. The series began on May 29 and concluded on June 11. The Penguins made their second consecutive Finals appearance, marking the third time in their history they had done this, following their appearances in 1991–1992 and 2008–2009. No team had appeared in consecutive Finals since the latter year, which was a rematch between the Penguins and Red Wings. The Predators made their debut in the Finals. This was the second consecutive season in which a Western Conference team made their first appearance in the Finals; the San Jose Sharks made their Finals debut the year prior. This was the first time in NHL history that two United States–born head coaches faced off against each other in the Stanley Cup Finals.

Result List


Result Description
In game five, Justin Schultz scored for Pittsburgh early in the first period on the power play. The following two goals by the Penguins would then put goaltender Juuse Saros into the net. Pittsburgh continued their goal-scoring into the second period starting first with Conor Sheary. Jake Guentzel tied the rookie record for points in a single playoff season (21) assisting on the first goal of the period. The second goal came from Phil Kessel which gave Sidney Crosby his third point of the night. The third goal by Ron Hainsey gave Kessel his third point of the night along with Crosby. This was the first period in which the Penguins out shot the Predators. No goals were scored in the third period, giving Matt Murray the shutout — in doing so, he became the first rookie since Cam Ward to record a shutout in the Finals. During the third period, 20 penalties were assessed, the most in one period since Game 3 of the 2011 Finals.
