NHL Predators mince Ducks to take series lead

20 Mai, 2017, 03:26 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

Finally breaking the scoreless tie, Anaheim's Corey Perry found the back of the Predators' net on a power play at the 15:35 mark of the second period, assisted by Rickard Rakell and Sami Vanaten.

Even Predators forward Filip Forsberg, who has never been confused with, say, Claude Lemieux, snuck in a stick to the groin of the Ducks' Jacob Silfverberg just before the second period ended.

The Predators took another lead when Forsberg converted a rebound of a breakaway by speedy Viktor Arvidsson, who had two assists. 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.

Perry's score came from just below the Nashville goal line, rifling a shot off Rinne's skate and into the net.

Ritchie took a long pass off the boards and his shot glanced off the side of goalie Pekka Rinne's head into the net in front of a crowd of 17,000 at the Honda Center.

Johansen has bordered on spectacular for the Predators in the post season with a career high 13 points in 12 playoffs games, and he is at a +10 for the post season.

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

The Nashville netminder had a rough outing in Game 2, surrendering four goals on Anaheim's first 16 shots through two periods.

"I don't think you can put it any other way: We need to emotionally get ourselves involved in the game right away", Cogliano said. And I think we've been doing that.

And while the Preds' Power Play has struggled much of the series, this time they would not be stopped. Looks like the Predators went all out to welcome them and make them feel like family.

In yet another physical game, the first period was relatively uneventful with neither team scoring and only one penalty against Anaheim. Quite possibly. The matchup of both Kesler and Johansen will certainly draw the attention of the officials as this series continues.

"It doesn't matter if I did or didn't get in his head for me", Kesler said Tuesday, a few hours before Game 3.

The Predators insist they can play that game too - and keep their cool no matter what pesky Ducks center Ryan Kesler does. When the game was on the line, in the third period, Anaheim won 57% of the draws during this critical period. "And on one flurry it went to 14", Carlyle said. Neal doubled the lead on a power play with one of the easiest goals in recent National Hockey League history, escorting the puck unimpeded into the net when Gibson completely lost sight of the play.

Johansen, who had been shadowed for the first two games of the series, should have seen less of Kesler in Game 3. "All night, we had a lot of chances and we didn't give them a lot".

Nashville wasn't going to be a picture-perfect team throughout the Stanley Cup Playoffs, so a stinker was bound to happen sooner or later.

"We understand, they wait", Malkin said.

Eastern Conference finals: Penguins at Senators - Ottawa have effectively deployed their methodical trap system in all but one period so far in the series, however Phil Kessel exploited that lapse and it is now a best-of-five affair. They're a good team. Johansen said he didn't know how anyone could cheer for a guy like that constantly prodding and poking. We weren't our best, but we lost in overtime. Nashville RW Craig Smith missed his third straight game.
