STANLEY CUP PLAYOFFS OPEN THREAD- May 12/17

19 Mai, 2017, 16:45 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

The Predators stole game one on the road for the third straight series Friday night against the Ducks, but they aren't satisfied.

"So I just closed my eyes and shot it in there", Vatanen said with his usual Finnish deadpan delivery. Lindholm finished the game with a plus-1 rating, two penalty minutes, three shots on goal and four blocked shots in 20:31 of ice time.

The Predators are 5-0 in their last five against the Pacific and 9-2 in their last 11 overall while the Ducks are 19-7 in their last 26 overall and 8-3 in their last 11 against the Central. If the Ducks can keep this up, it might be enough to extinguish Nashville's red hot scoring defense corp.

"That's going to be interesting as we go on into the series, because it can cause top guys to play more and pick up extra minutes".

"It was huge", forward Austin Watson said of the game one win.

The Nashville Predators roll into Honda Center on Friday rested and riding high after venturing further in the Stanley Cup playoffs than any team in franchise history.

It's been successful for the Predators, who made a victorious Western Conference final debut against the Anaheim Ducks on Friday.

Neal one-timed a pass from P.K. Subban at the right circle and his shot deflected off Ducks forward Corey Perry into the net to end a game in which goaltending and penalty killing were spotlighted.

Game one of the Western Conference final is in the books, and the lower seeded Nashville Predators pulled off a 3-2 overtime victory on the road on Friday night. "We just need to get back to playing our game". Each team executed a four-game sweep in the first round. The Ducks took an early lead with the first goal of the game on a shot by Jakob Silfverberg. Nashville's tight checking and zealous forechecking was rewarded when Filip Forsberg, plus-10 for the playoffs coming in, tapped in a point shot from defenseman Matt Irwin. Johansen had a goal and an assist, but Kesler's well-known style of physical play already has burrowed under his skin.

'Political Schizophrenia': Putin Offers to Help Settle Trump-Russia Intel Controversy
Speaking at a news conference in Sochi, the Russian president declared that Trump did not share any secrets. Jason Chaffetz said in a tweet Wednesday that he still hasn't spoken with Comey about testifying.


"Our power play has been a little bit touch and go". "So I don't know how many choices they have". The 6-foot-5 Finnish goaltender is a primary reason for the Predators being one of four remaining teams in the chase for the Stanley Cup. "Obviously, disappointed personally in that second period".

Only two days have passed since the Anaheim Ducks battled through a white-knuckle Game 7, scraping out a 2-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers to leave the second round behind. Anaheim continues to rely mainly on Ryan Getzlaf to carry the offense and he hasn't been up to the task recently.

Although Honda Center was much fuller and louder than it was for the traffic-affected series opener, Johansen scored on a breakaway just 4:18 in. John Gibson has been shaky in net.

That was the lone highlight, though, in a forgettable opening period for the Ducks.

The Predators took another lead when Forsberg converted a rebound of a breakaway by speedy Viktor Arvidsson, who had two assists. We've been doing that the whole playoffs.

NOTES: The Ducks kept veteran Jared Boll in their lineup over several young prospects to replace injured F Patrick Eaves, who missed his sixth straight game.

Pittsburgh has also dominated the Senators in the postseason, going 12-3 while bouncing Ottawa from the playoffs in their past three series matchups, holding the Senators to two or fewer goals on eight occasions.

All through the first two rounds of the playoffs, the Ducks wore a halo over their heads during overtime. The two-time AL MVP homered and stole two bases to help the Angels beat Detroit 4-1 earlier Sunday.
