Chipped Ice A.M.: Crosby, Malkin kept quiet in Game 3 loss

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Bridgestone Arena was loud Saturday night, starting from the time fans erupted into an ovation when the first ceremonial catfish was thrown on the ice during warm-ups.

Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin were quiet. For the first time in their 11 years playing together, both were held without a shot in the same playoff game.

The combination of those two sonic events helped the Nashville Predators claim a 5-1 victory over the Penguins in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final. Now down 2-1, the Predators are back in the series.

“We’ve got to find a way to raise that level of desperation and be better all over the ice,” Crosby said. “Hopefully a game like this is a hard lesson. We’ve got to make sure we’re better.”

Malkin didn’t so much as attempt a shot. He credited a swarming Nashville defense for giving him no room to move.

“We lost 5-1. All lines play bad,” Malkin said. “It’s my line too. I did not play great. We did not play much in the offensive zone. They scored five goals. It’s not the best game, but it’s fine. It’s just one game. We lost one game. We still lead, 2-1. We need to play better and we have a great chance to win next game.”

Crosby tried three shots. One was blocked by Ryan Ellis and two went wide. Crosby chalked up his struggles to a lack of execution and Nashville’s ability to get in shooting lanes.

“We’ve been in this position before,” Crosby said. “It’s not a good feeling. It’s important to learn from it, but a loss is a loss. We’ve got to find a way to be better. That’s the bottom line. Our desperation is going to be there more the next game. I know that. We have to make sure we execute.”

Both Malkin and Crosby showed frustration at times Saturday night.

Crosby got into a war of words with P.K. Subban late in the game. Afterwards, the Nashville defenseman told NBC Sports Network that Crosby told him he had bad breath.

Malkin, meanwhile, was caught on camera feigning a swing of his stick toward a fan who threw a towel at him as he left the ice at the end of the game.

Former Penguins winger James Neal said he wasn’t sure Nashville’s success against Crosby and Malkin on Saturday were a result of his team’s agitation efforts.

“I think you try to get under their skin a little bit,” Neal said. “Those are guys that have been here before. They’ve had guys definitely try to get under their skin before. We’re just trying to play hard, do the right things out there.

“They’re top players. You have to be physical, be aware every shift. As you saw in the first couple games, you know, the second you’re not aware of them, they’re behind you and have a scoring chance. It was more just being more aware of them.”

Nashville coach Peter Laviolette, meanwhile, questioned whether holding Malkin and Crosby without a shot was even a meaningful development.

“If they weren’t taking the shots, they were probably making somebody else take the shots,” he said. “They don’t need to actually take it. They see the ice well, bring people towards them, make plays.”

The Penguins didn’t make many plays on the power play Saturday night, which exacerbated their offensive struggles.

Coach Mike Sullivan said he thought the power play’s ineffectiveness was a big factor in keeping Malkin and Crosby quiet.

“My feeling, or at least my observation of coaching these guys, is when they have success on the power play, it helps their overall game, their five-on-five game. It gives them confidence. They feel the puck,” Sullivan said. “We haven’t had the success that we would like here in this early part of the series. We certainly got to figure that out as a group. I believe we will.

“But I thought they had some looks. They had some attempts. They didn’t hit the net, obviously. Those are important guys for us. We want them to get pucks on the net because they have the ability to score.”

THE SERIES: Penguins lead, 2-1

LAST GAME: Roman Josi and Frederick Gaudreau scored in a 42-second span to give the Predators the lead and James Neal delivered a gut punch in the final minute of the second period, powering Nashville to a 5-1 win in Game 3 Saturday night.

NEXT GAME: The Penguins will look to improve to 7-1 after a postseason loss when they face Nashville in Game 4 at 8 p.m. Monday.

A NOTE: With his first-period goal, Jake Guentzel became the first player to score in the first three games of a Stanley Cup Final since Detroit’s Steve Yzerman against Philadelphia in 1997.

A QUOTE: “I need to play better myself too. Maybe shoot a couple times, not one-timer but maybe wrist shot. I don’t know. Maybe go to net. I can’t explain.” – Evgeni Malkin

A NUMBER: 22 – career Stanley Cup Final games for Sidney Crosby. Saturday night marked the first time he was held without a shot.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
