Ducks Even Series in NHL Playoffs

Ducks Even Series in NHL Playoffs

Josi's goal was the first power-play tally of the series for Nashville. 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 got the Ducks out to a 1-0 advantage in the second period.

The Nashville Predators look to protect their home ice and take a 2-1 series lead.

Anaheim Ducks center Rickard Rakell (67), of Sweden, and Nashville Predators center Ryan Johansen (92) battle for the puck in front of Anaheim goalie John Gibson, left, during the second period in Game 3 of the Western Confere. Bridgestone Arena could barely contain the roars of the dancing, gold-shirted fans when Roman Josi buried a rebound with 2 minutes 43 second left in the third period while Ducks forward Chris Wagner was in the penalty box, serving a needless offensive-zone high-sticking penalty. Antoine Vermette scored an empty-net goal with:44 seconds remaining in the game.

Just two days after surviving Edmonton, the Ducks had to face Nashville in an early-starting game - and they were promptly outskated and outclassed for long stretches by the well-rested Predators. To his credit, Gibson was excellent, with 38 saves for the Ducks. “Hes a terrific player, and I think hes just worked on fitting inside of the concept of how we want to play as a team.”. "I don't know how you cheer for a guy like that".

Nashville had been 0 of 11 on the power play in this series. "I don't know what's going through his head out there". Quite possibly. The matchup of both Kesler and Johansen will certainly draw the attention of the officials as this series continues.

One would expect a more aggressive Anaheim attack in Game 4, even with that contest in Nashville.

Kevin Hayes and Brady Skjei played their first game since joining the side following the New York Rangers' elimination from the National Hockey League playoffs.

Evgeni Malkin's goal late in the third period forced the extra period, but Pittsburgh struggled to generate any consistent pressure on Anderson.

He will need to maintain that level to give Ottawa a chance to win this series. Unfortunately for them, they didn't carry that over into the middle or the end of the story that was Game 2. After the game, he said he just has to focus on his game.

"We believe that we can go in any building and play with the teams that we're up against and give ourselves a chance for success", Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. And when we say big, we mean they were literally big guys. Stream every single game of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs with Sportsnet NOW.

For better or worse, Kesler's attempt to get under the Predators' collective skin so far has been a success. The breakthrough came 14:32 into the first when Penguins defenseman Brian Dumoulin left a blind drop pass behind his net that Ryan intercepted and slipped to Pageau in the right circle. They're a good team. They have tremendous scoring balance as their forwards and defensemen are all capable of chipping in. "Whether it's overtime or third period or we're leading or we're trailing".
