Why Crosby's shots to Subban might help Predators

For as long as the Nashville Predators are in the playoffs, well take the temperature of the series the morning after each game.

This storm is over: Both sides have said it, accurately, at different points of this series: Momentum isnt a thing here. The Penguins absolutely destroyed the Predators on Thursday, but that doesnt have anything to do with Sundays Game 6 at Bridgestone Arena. Whether it was 1-0 or 10-0, it was one win and now the series is 3-2 and the Predators have to win the next one. They know they can play with the Penguins. They know they can outplay the Penguins for extended periods, and they know they can beat them. Do it once more and you get a trip back to your personal House of Horrors. But its worth a shot.

The storm is building: The most concerning thing for the Predators is the fact that, for two straight games now, the Penguins have found ways to get multiple odd-man rushes and breakaways. Pekka Rinne turned all but one of them away in Game 4, but Game 5 was a bunch of fast breaking and slam dunking. Some of that obviously can be traced to Nashville mistakes that cant happen, but the Penguins also looked faster in the past two games. The Predators have a lot to clean up, and that will be much more difficult if Ryan Ellis (undisclosed injury) cant go in Game 6. Anthony Bitetto is a solid player but hasnt seen any action in these playoffs.
