The 3 plays from Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final that everybody will be talking about today
(Frederick Gaudreau scored under the stick of Matt Murray in Game 4.NBC)
Good morning! The Predators beat the Penguins, 4-1, and evened the Stanley Cup Final at two games apiece. Here are the plays everybody will be talking about Tuesday:
The Frederick Gaudreau delayed goal. After the Predators and the Penguins traded goals late in the first period, Gaudreau, whose three career NHL goals have all come in the Stanley Cup Final, poked one under the stick of Matt Murray from behind the net. But it was initially waved off. It wasn’t until 35 seconds later that the horn sounded and the officials decided to review the play. It turns out the puck had fully crossed the line, giving the Preds a 2-1 lead.
The Pekka Rinne scrambling saves. After Sidney Crosby scored on a breakaway in the first period, it looked as if he may get another one in the second period. But this time Rinne stonewalled Crosby and scrambled to stop several follow-up attempts, including one in which the puck was just sitting in front of an empty net.
The Mike Fisher diving assist. The Predators put some space between themselves and the Penguins late in the second period with Viktor Arvidsson’s breakaway goal. But it was the assists from Fisher and James Neal that created the chance. Neal was able to force the puck up the ice while pinned against the boards. But it was the diving flick by Fisher that really allowed the goal to happen.
The empty-net bonus. With the Preds up 3-1 with 3 ½ minutes to go, the Penguins pulled Murray from the net. On the ensuing face-off, Filip Forsberg scored from the opposite goal line, nearly 200 feet away, making it 4-1 and game over.
Nathan: Donna, you don’t know her! You don’t know anything! Cos you’re straight! Right? You’re part of the system! Right? You’re part of the fascist heterosexual orthodoxy! Donna: I’m black. And I’m a girl. Try that for a week.
The governor of Puerto Rico has decided that the island cannot pay back more than $70 billion in debt, setting up an unprecedented financial crisis that could rock the municipal bond market and lead to higher borrowing costs for governments across the United States.
Puerto Rico’s move could roil financial markets already dealing with the turmoil of the renewed debt crisis in Greece. It also raises questions about the once-staid municipal bond market, which states and cities count on to pay upfront costs for public improvements such as roads, parks and hospitals.
For many years, those bonds were considered safe investments — but those assumptions have been shifting in recent years as a small but steady string of U.S. municipalities, including Detroit, as well as Stockton and Vallejo in California, have tumbled into bankruptcy.
In addition, with as much as $73 billion in debt, the island’s debt obligation is four times that of Detroit, which became the largest U.S. city to file for bankruptcy in 2012.
