Miller: Ondrej Kase's motor powers Ducks in comeback win

The Predators allowed more than three goals in this postseason for the first time in Sunday's 5-3 setback but can take solace in the fact that the next two games are at Bridgestone Arena, where they have won nine in a row in the playoffs since back-to-back defeats against Anaheim a year ago.

Forsberg scored his fifth playoff goal at 7:59 for a 3-2 Nashville edge, but Kase tied it again with his first postseason goal at 10:41 of the second.

He's now found the back of the net in each of the three games of the series.

Rather than balking at the challenge, the Nashville Predators responded to a 1-0 deficit and a great John Gibson performance by just imposing their will in an eventual 2-1 Game 3 win. Five of their six defensemen made their way onto the scoresheet, combining for six total points (one goal, five assists).

In danger of falling into an two-game hole against the Nashville Predators, the Anaheim Ducks used a second-period comeback to even the Western Conference finals.

Impeachment - the 'I' word - and how it works
In fact, Congressman El Green from Texas today became the first USA lawmaker to demand impeachment of Trump from the House floor. Such an early discussion of impeachment may be indicative of things to come for Trump.


Being behind isn't a new situation for the Ducks, who lost the first two games of their second-round series against Edmonton but came back to win in seven games. Forsberg has now scored in all three games of this series.

Game 3 is set for Tuesday night in Nashville. Previous year in the first round of the playoffs the Predators defeated the Ducks in game in Anaheim.

Yet, they still gave up the first goal, took the first penalty, surrendered the first power-play goal, took the second penalty, allowed the second goal and, 16 minutes in, had just two shots on goal. Once they coolly opened a crack in Rinne and the Nashville Predators, they started a deluge that evened the series.

Kesler interprets Johansen's comments as proof what he's doing is working.

Nashville dominated the tired Ducks, and Forsberg forced a turnover on a forecheck before tipping Matt Irwin's shot through Gibson for his fourth goal.

For the first time in the 2017 National Hockey League playoffs, it just wasn't Pekka Rinne's night. The Predators outshot the Ducks 28-to-13 after 40 minutes — the Ducks only had four shots in the second period —but it was not until the third period when Forsberg finally timed the game.

Corey Perry, celebrating his 32nd birthday, collected his third goal of the playoffs from an unlikely angle.

"I don't know if it hit the goalie or the player that was laying in front still", Neal said. After sweeping the Chicago Blackhawks and defeating the St. Louis Blues in stride, the Nashville Predators continue their battle to the top against the Anaheim Ducks in the Western Conference Finals. However things picked up in the second period, and only continued to gain traction in the third.

The two centers have taken center stage as they trade words, elbows, and cheap shots on the ice. And when we say big, we mean they were literally big guys.

Crosby in Control - Sidney Crosby couldn't help the Penguins scoring effort, but you know that he has to step up at some point if Pittsburgh is going to turn on its high-scoring mode. "It gives us the extra boost and the extra energy we needed". According to Sportsnet Stats, the team had won all seven games in which he registered a point at home in the postseason.
