Richard Jefferson Says Warriors Lacked Composure When They Lost 2016 NBA Finals

This year he almost played in every regular-season game (77 of 82) along with every playoff game. James has called Golden State a "juggernaut" but the Warriors aren't buying all that talk.

Penguins seek weird 'bounce back' from Game 1 win


He still gives them the best chance to win. If that Predator's shot hadn't hit the crossbar and had instead gone in, Guentzel's goal would have been a game-tier, not a game-winner.

This put Pittsburgh on a two man advantage. With the two-man advantage, Evgeni Malkin continued to make a case for the Conn Smythe Trophy by blasting a slap shot through Pekka Rinne's glove. This year, the Predators are at 51.2 percent. Pittsburgh has just two shots on five power plays and has not scored on any of them.
