Predators reach 1st Stanley Cup Final, oust Ducks in 6 games

Posted June 05, 2017

As the clock ticked down, fans began shouting, "We want the Cup".

"I don't think I even dreamt of this moment, scoring a hat trick in the Western Conference clinching game, but I can't speak enough for just our whole group", Sissons said.

Surreal also would describe what was going on inside and outside the arena.

With the game tied at 3-3 in the third it was Sissons third goal of the night with 6 minutes to play that gave Nashville the historic victory.

Millions across North America will be watching as the Predators take the ice in the Stanley Cup Final next week, but only a lucky few will actually get to attend one or more of the games. Nashville answered when Austin Watson's shot deflected off Brandon Montour past Jonathan Bernier to open the scoring just 81 seconds into the game. It didn't take long for the fans at Bridgestone Arena to realize that it would be that kind of night. Nashville is playing for the Stanley Cup. "It's something that has been pretty cool to see".

One player who stands out more than any other for the Nashville Predators during this postseason is goaltender Pekka Rinne. He's been the Predators' starting goalie since the 2008-09 season and has now become their most valuable playoff performer. With the series tied up 1-1, the Senators set out to establish themselves when they ran up a 4-0 lead in the first period before the 5-1 outcome.

"It's nearly like a thing you don't want to think about too much", Rinne said. It's a pretty fantastic feeling and you're working for that for a long, long time.

Sissons scored three of his eight regular-season goals in a 6-1 win January 5 at Tampa Bay.

"I feel like last number of years we've been going that (right) direction, building this team and having more depth", Rinne said. "And with these guys and the adversity we've been facing the last few days, fantastic response". The Penguins limped into the game with key injuries to Justin Schultz, Bryan Rust, and Patric Hornqvist - these injuries added to the absence of star defenseman Kril Letang, who was lost due to injury earlier in the season. The Ducks outshot Nashville 26-8 through two periods but still trailed by a goal after 40 minutes. They have to finish and ensure their frenetic energy actually gets the puck in the net. Every day, they seemed to find a new way to win. We scored three goals and probably should have five. Anaheim finished off the Oilers on May 10, generating such a quick turnaround that Randy Carlyle couldn't resist grumbling about it after the series concluded. They're missing their best player as well. I don't think they're much better. Taking on the hard jobs, blocking shots, taking hits, giving hits, fighting people.

Stanley Cup Final tickets are now only available to Predators season ticket holders. He has been in the National Hockey League since he accepted a job with the now-defunct Atlanta Flames as an administrative assistant in 1972.
