Catfish tosser says he was 'dumb redneck with a bad idea'

Nashville Predator fans like to throw catfish on the ice during hockey games.

The winning team went almost two full periods without a shot. The goaltender was shaky at times but improved to 4-1 in the playoffs with a.936 save percentage.

Bonino sealed it with an empty-netter.

But that won't stop some National Hockey League fans from stewing on this game for certain reasons, one of which was a certain overturned call on a Predators goal near the beginning of the game.

"One of the strengths of this team is the quick-strike ability", Sullivan said. We found a way to come back against a Stanley Cup championship team. It's worked so far in the playoffs and there's no reason to think it won't work in the Stanley Cup Final. The Predators controlled the pace and the puck, just not the scoreboard.

"This is something we'll learn from and we'll try to make sure that we respond the right way for Game 2".

If you see something, say something. "We showed a lot of character and I felt we played a great game. Pretty good game by him". That's what has made watching this Predators team so much fun to watch. Waddell added that his wife was "tentatively OK with it", which is more commonly known by spouses as "you'd better not do this". Although the Predators are in their first conference final, they come in with one of the deepest lineups, with C Ryan Johansen and RW Viktor Arvidsson among the unsafe players on a team that does offense by committee. It was his first shot of the game and first by the Penguins in 37 minutes.

Except the streak was bookended by goals. Despite having an early goal waived off due to the play being offside and then falling into a 3-0 hole in the first period, Nashville fought its way back into the game to tie it up at 3-3 and was applying heavy pressure to take the lead. For five-sixths of this game, Nashville didn't just dominate the Penguins; They demolished them. There's a bit of a changeling quality to this group as opposed to the one that beat San Jose in six games to win the Cup last spring. Sullivan listed him as a game-time decision for Game 1 against Nashville, and though he gave Guentzel the nod over Carl Hagelin, he started him on a fourth line with Matt Cullen and Patric Hornqvist. Surely, they would get a shot. Seriously. A team with Malkin, Crosby and Kessel could not put a single puck on net for.

"It's embarrassing for Tiger, something that you can't go back and change", Begay said on Golf Channel from the NCAA men's golf championship in Sugar Grove, Illinois, where he was working for the network.

Game 1 was truly freakish and in many ways told us nearly nothing about how this series will play out.

"There were no surprises", said defenseman P.K. Subban during Tuesday's off-day media availability.

I believe this was in the back of everyone's minds, but no one thought it would come true. "He's a very good player".

Typical for everyone except Rinne.

Regardless of the wacky nature of Rinne's first Stanley Cup finals game, the 34-year-old goalie will now face questions about whether he's up to the task of handling the Penguins.

The Predators outplayed the defending champion Penguins for much of the series opener but ultimately lost 5-3 despite holding a huge 26-12 edge in shots.

Rinne's teammates rallied to his defense.

Waddell said after buying two tickets for $350 each, he went to his cousin's house, and they filleted the fish. I don't think it's Xs and Os. "We have all the belief in Pekks we can ever have". I see no issue with this.
