Crosby Talks Game 6 Against Predators

The Pittsburgh Penguins could make history as Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final starts tonight against the Nashville Predators as they could become the first team to win back-to-back Stanley Cups since the Detroit Red Wings in 1997-98.

The best-of-seven series returns to Bridgestone Arena where the Predators have been able to feed off the hometown crowd to initially come back from the first two game loses against the Penguins.

“Still a lot of work to be done,” Penguins captain Sidney Crosby said. “We know we’re going to face a desperate team. We’ve already played two games there and know the atmosphere and know how much they feed off their fans. We’ve still got a lot of work to do there.”

The series has no doubt be ruled by the home teams dominance and the Predators are perfect with a 8-0 record in the last eight games played against the Penguins. As the Pens hope to end that streak tonight Game 6 starts at 8 p.m. E.T. and coverage can be found on NBC, CBC, Sportsnet and TVAS.
