Predators Knot Stanley Cup Final
Craig Smith (Wisconsin) and Harry Zolnierczyk (Brown) each posted an assist on Monday night, as the Nashville Predators evened the Stanley Cup Final with a 4-1 win over the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins. The NHL's ultimate annual playoff series is now tied at two games apiece.
Smith had previously scored a goal in Nashville's 5-1 victory on Saturday at Bridgestone Arena in Tennessee, after the Predators had dropped the first two games in Pittsburgh. Brian Dumoulin (Boston College) assisted on the Penguins' lone goal Monday, which briefly tied the game at a goal apiece.
Game 5 will be played Thursday in Pittsburgh, with Game 6 back in Nashville on Sunday.
