The Pittsburgh Penguins and Nashville Predators face off in Game 5 of the 2017 Stanley Cup Final on Thursday night, and Gossip Cop has a live stream available. Watch the NHL championship online below!
The series is currently tied at 2-2. The Penguins won the first two games of the finals on their home ice before the Predators won their two home games at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. The Predators’ home games marked the first time the team has hosted a Stanley Cup final in franchise history. Game 5 will return to PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, where the defending champions will try to make a comeback and break the tie. However, the Predators will attempt to keep their momentum going for a third straight victory.
The winner of Thursday night’s matchup will be just one more home win away from taking the 2017 title, but both teams have struggled all season during their away games. The Predators have a 9-1 record at home this postseason, but are 5-5 in other locations. Meanwhile, the Penguins have enjoyed five straight victories in Pittsburgh, so Nashville has an uphill battle in breaking the team’s run. Of course, the Predators have the help of all-star goalie Pekka Rinne, who only gave up two goals during the last two games of the finals. Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final kicks off at 8 p.m. ET.
