Titans linemen chug beer to hype Predators fans in Game 3

The Nashville Predators finally are facing their first real adversity this postseason, with the Anaheim Ducks eager to push, hit and poke them out of what's already been a historic run.

Filip Forsberg tied the game 3:54 into the third period for the Predators.

Sami Vatanen, Jacob Silfverberg and Ondrej Kase each had a goal for the Ducks, who wiped out a two-goal deficit to prevail. Kase scored the tying goal in the second period - his first of the playoffs - as part of a huge night for that line that saw Getzlaf collect three assists and Ritchie score the decisive tally, his second-game victor in three contests.

For good measure, Antoine Vermette added an empty-net goal with 44 seconds to play.

Pekka Rinne had his first poor game in net in the playoffs.

NOTES: After going 0-for-20 on the power play over six consecutive games, Anaheim scored with the man advantage for the second straight contest.

On Anaheim's side, the Ducks must alleviate the pressure on Gibson, who has mostly stood tall to slow a wild Preds offense.

After Game 1, the focus was on face-offs being something that Nashville needed to key on as the series continued.

Chris Wagner went to the box for high-sticking Nashville defenseman Ryan Ellis with 3:55 left in the Ducks' offensive zone. The Ducks had less shots on goal but were able to make more goals on less shots. This season's.924 mark tied him for seventh among National Hockey League netminders who played at least 15 games and we're starting to see the high-end of those stats in his post-season play. They can't expect to rally back every game. "Actually, (Getzlaf) made a little tip pass in the middle that kind of messed their D up a little bit, and I shot the pick to the net and it went in". The Predators have yet to lose two straight games, with Rinne allowing one goal in his two prior starts.

The Senators improved to 6-1 when pushed beyond regulation during the postseason to give them early control of the best-of-seven series against the defending Stanley Cup champions, a matchup few outside of the guys in the red, white and black jerseys gave them a shot of winning. "Like, his family and his friends watching him play, I don't know how you can cheer for a guy like that", Johansen said. Ryan Getzlaf, who assisted on that score, finished with three points on the evening and now sits one point behind Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin (19) for the playoff scoring lead. With this win, the Preds are the first National Hockey League team in 20 years to win ten consecutive games at home in the playoffs. "They need one chance, two-on-one or three-on-two to score". "It doesn't matter if we're up or down, you always want to help the team".

"There are a lot of things to like, but it's just one game", Boucher said.

Ducks coach Randy Carlyle paid tribute to Gibson's shot-stopping work in goal.

The Predators also have been physical, and defenseman P.K. Subban said he thinks they've been doing a good job so far, particularly Johansen.

The Predators have been a model of consistency while going 9-2 in the postseason, and they think much of the credit should be placed on a defensive corps that might be the best in the playoffs.
