The Pittsburgh Penguins exploded into life on Thursday night.
The Penguins, led by star play Sidney Crosby, took Game 5 of their Stanley Cup Final series against the Nashville Predators easily with a 6-0 win. The victory gives the Penguins a 3-2 series lead and continues the trend in this series of the home team always coming out on top.
The Penguins scored two goals early and added a third before the end of the first period. This put Nashville on the back foot and the Preds never looked like they were going to have the firepower on the night to get back into the game.
