Ducks captain Getzlaf fined for apparent homophobic slur


The NHL has fined Anaheim Ducks forward Ryan Getzlaf $10,000 for directing an inappropriate comment "toward another on-ice participant" Thursday night in Game 4 against the Predators.

"I thought Matt was solid", Sullivan said. "The only way you're going home happy is with a Stanley Cup and we fell short of that goal", said Oilers forward Kassian.

NOTES: C Frederick Gaudreau made his Stanley Cup playoff debut for Nashville, and veteran C Vern Fiddler returned from a two-game absence.

Corey Perry has had a awful playoff but seems to be heating up with goals in consecutive games, including the Game 4 victor.

Rickard Rakell and Nick Ritchie staked the Ducks to a 2-0 lead. He's proven to be a playoffs hero when it comes to post-regulation play, as this was Corey's third overtime goal in the post-season and the second of the Ducks/Predators series. The goalie made maybe his best stop on Derick Brassard's backhander, kicking the shot away with his right pad. Pekka Rinne has given up 25 goals on 433 shots faced.

They will be hoping for a similar result tonight, albeit with a different, and perhaps less stressful, path to get there.

United States detained, released 2 Turkish security officers involved in massive fight
Department of State is working closely with local authorities concerning this incident", the spokesperson said. The US Department of State, the Mayor of Washington and several Congressmen condemned the brutal attack .


The goal finally was credited to Perry after the Ducks appealed to the National Hockey League.

"All I can really do is kind of jump in and try not to think about it", Murray said. Calle Jarnkrok hasn't been noticeable in the offensive end this postseason and neither Colin Wilson nor Colton Sissons has been effective in this series, combining for just one point against the Ducks. No one expected the Predators to beat the Stanley Cup favorite Blackhawks in round one until they swept them.

Game 5 is Saturday night in Anaheim. Shaw was also fined $5,000.

The Ducks killed off five penalties, including a 5 on 3 in the third.

This time, however, the Predators couldn't pull another stunner. The Predators have the most exciting blue line to watch.

Johansen was injured during the Ducks' 3-2 overtime victory in Game 4, which evened the series 2-2. "The last three or four years, we've obviously gone through a lot", Anaheim goalie John Gibson said. "I thought that's what we did".

Predators lose injured C Ryan Johansen for rest of playoffs
Anaheim's Ryan Kesler, Andrew Cogliano and Antoine Vermette have all scored just one goal apiece over the Ducks' 16 playoff games. But they won't get any sympathy from Ducks head coach Randy Carlyle, who said injuries are "part of life in the playoffs".


"They've been getting a lot of attention for how they've been playing and they've been playing good".

A moment before he scored the biggest goal of his life, Aberg was upended during a scramble.

Nashville brought out inaugural American Idol victor Kelly Clarkson as the latest big name to sing the national anthem, and rock group Kings of Leon stirred up the crowd by waving from the bandstand in Music City's latest show of star power.

With 4:40 left in the second period, Johansen collided with Anaheim Ducks defenseman Josh Manson during a race for a puck. Getzlaf, the Ducks' leading scorer in the postseason, avoided a suspension. Nashville came out flatter than a pancake, outshot 14-2 in the first and were lucky to only be down by one. It was the fewest shots ever allowed by the Ducks in a period.

Ellis and Josi have both scored 10 points in the postseason, while Subban is right behind with nine. Look no further than the 7-1 loss to the Oilers in Game 6, which came just after the Ducks came back from a three goal deficit in Game 5. Guentzel had two assists.
