Goalie Matt Murray, making his fifth consecutive start in the postseason, turned in a strong game in the Penguins' 5-3 victory over the visiting Nashville Predators in the opener of the Stanley Cup Final Monday night.

Murray kept his team in the game after it squandered a 3-0, first-period lead. The Penguins could not get a shot on net in the entire second period and went 37 minutes without finding the Nashville net in the second and third periods. Murray was up to the task, though, stopping a formidable Nashville attack and making 23 saves. Murray improved his postseason record in these playoffs to 4-1. He has a goals-against average of 1.62 and a .936 save percentage. He's clearly taken over the starting job from veteran Marc-Andre Fleury and almost certainly will start Game 2 of the Final in Pittsburgh Wednesday night.

Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne had an extraordinarily quiet night during the Predators' 5-3 loss to the Penguins in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final in Pittsburgh Monday night.

In a postseason in which Rinne has excelled, he faced only 12 Pittsburgh shots and made only seven saves Monday. The Pens failed to fire a shot on Rinne in the entire second period and went 37 minutes in the second and third periods before getting a shot on net. Nashville became the first team to hold an opponent to zero shots in a period during a Stanley Cup Final since the NHL began tracking shots on goal in 1957-58. Rinne's record in this postseason dropped to 12-5. His goals-against average is 1.83 and his save percentage is .934.

Nashville captain Mike Fisher drew two assists in the opening game of the Stanley Cup Final Monday night, a 5-3 loss to the Penguins in Pittsburgh.

Fisher missed the Preds' previous two games with an injury that was not disclosed publicly. He did not have a point in the 14 playoff games in which he did play. With wife/singer Carrie Underwood in the crowd, Fisher grabbed assists on the Preds' strong comeback attempt. They were down 3-0 after the first period but tied it 3-3. Fisher assisted on a power-play goal by Ryan Ellis at 8:21 of the second period. He assisted on the game-tying goal by Frederick Gaudreau at 13:21 of the third period. Colton Sissons had the Preds' second goal at 10:06 of the second period. Sissons' goal was his sixth of the postseason. Ellis' goal was his fifth and Gaudreau's was his first.

Forward Nick Bonino scored twice in a strange 5-3 triumph for the Penguins over the visiting Nashville Predators in the opener of the Stanley Cup Final Monday night.

The Penguins had no shots on goal in the second period. They also had no shots on goal in 37 minutes during the second and third periods. In the entire game, the Pens managed a mere 12 shots on goal. "We have to do a better job of finding the net," Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby lamented afterward. Bonino's first goal Monday gave the Pens a 3-0 lead at 19:43 of the first period. His second goal -- and third of the postseason -- was put into an empty net with 62 seconds left in regulation. The Preds tied the game at 3-3 before Jake Guentzel, with the Pens' first shot on net in 37 minutes, scored to make it 4-3 at 16:43 of the third. The goal was Guentzel's 10th of the postseason. The game's first two goals were netted by Evgeni Malkin (eighth) and Conor Sheary (first). Crosby assisted on both. He now has 15 assists in the playoffs.

Patric Hornqvist (upper body) will be back in the lineup Monday night in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final against his former Nashville teammates.

His return will make Carl Hagelin and Jake Guentzel game-time decisions. Hornqvist has missed the last six games with an upper-body injury. He has four goals and seven points in 13 matches during the 2017 playoffs.

Mike Fisher (undisclosed) is expected to be available for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, per Predators coach Peter Laviolette.

Fisher returned to practice on Thursday and said that he felt pretty good, so it's not surprising to see him projected to return. It's also a big boost for the Predators to get a center back given that Ryan Johansen won't be available for the Stanley Cup Final.

Patric Hornqvist (upper body) will be a game-time decision for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Penguins coach Mike Sullivan was "definitely encouraged" by the way Hornqvist played during Sunday's practice. As previously noted, Hornqvist skated on the first power-play unit during the practice, which is might suggest that they're working under the belief that he'll be available.

John Shannon of Sportsnet.ca says that the Washington Capitals and T.J. Oshie have just about completed a new contract.

Oshie was slated to be a UFA on July 1 but this will take him off the market. There are no terms at this time but that should come shortly as Oshie would have been a highly sought-after free agent had he hit the market. Oshie had 33 goals this season, his best in his NHL career. Look for 30-plus goals and 55-60 points from Oshie this season and draft him accordingly.

Multiple sources have reported that the Toronto Maple Leafs and Washington Capitals will play an outdoor game at the Naval Academy on March 3, 2018.

The announcement will be made on Monday. The stadium holds 34,000 people and will be a rematch of the first round of the playoffs in which the Capitals won in six tough games, five of which went into overtime.

Erik Karlsson revealed he will deal with his injured foot next week and expects to make a full recovery.

Karlsson will have an MRI and X-rays done. You wouldn't know with the way he was playing, but Karlsson revealed earlier in the postseason that he was playing with two hairline fractures in his left heel. Hard to believe that a two-time Norris trophy winner needed a coming out party, but this past playoff run really cemented his status as the best defensemen in the NHL.
