For the second time in as many Stanley Cup Final games, the Penguins built a three-goal lead against the Predators. This time, Pittsburgh didn’t give up that lead before securing the victory. The Pens won 4-1 in Game 2 after scoring three goals in quick succession in the third period Wednesday night.

Selanne, 46, was considered a lock after ending his career as the 15th-highest scorer in league history. The Finnish Flash claimed the Stanley Cup with the Ducks in 2006 as he amassed 1,457 points in 1,451 games throughout his career. The winger also spent time with the Jets, Sharks and Avalanche and was the recipient of the Calder Memorial Trophy, the Maurice Rocket Richard Trophy and the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy.

Andreychuk, 53, earned an induction in his ninth year of eligibility. The keeper of the most power-play goals (274) in league history, Andreychuk captained the Lightning to the Stanley Cup in 2004. The winger also had stints with the Sabres, Maple Leafs, Devils, Bruins and Avalanche before landing in Tampa Bay and earned All-Star honors on two occasions.
Nashville is a wonderful city. It has developed an entertaining and accomplished hockey team. It’s OK for Predators fans 鈥?really, it is 鈥?to sit back and root for their team to win games without throwing garbage onto the ice in an attempt to seem hockey-hip.
It is unwise to laugh off incidents such as this, however. This is not sneaking a miniature Reese’s cup into your wife’s purse so you don’t have to pay movie-theater candy prices.
