Ducks even Western Conference series with 5-3 win over Predators

20 May 2017, 02:36 | Pamela Mathis

Previous year in the first round of the playoffs the Predators defeated the Ducks in game in Anaheim.

The Nashville Predators deserved to win Game 1 of the Western Conference final, but John Gibson didn't deserve the loss for Anaheim.

A rare off night for Pekka Rinne cost the Nashville Predators in Game 2 as the Anaheim Ducks were able to pile on five goals on 27 shots en route to a 5-3 victory, tying the series at one game apiece in the process. But it's hard on them and it's going to be harder as the games get going.

The noise is unrelenting, whether because of what the home team is doing or the fans' choreographed cheers.

"That's really it", Ekholm said.

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. It helps us so much, especially with those two goals. We have our fans standing up the whole third period, literally, and cheering us on. And as a team that's - it gives us that extra boost. And unless the Ducks figure out a way to shut down Nashville's top line of Johansen, Arvidsson and Filip Forsberg, who played a role in all three goals, the outcome isn't going to continue in Anaheim's favour. "I don't know who was keeping it", Carlyle said, "but he better get a pair of glasses".

Perry's score came from just below the Nashville goal line, rifling a shot off Rinne's skate and into the net. We have celebrated hat tricks with some of our players in the past.

Game 3 is in Nashville on Tuesday. Getzlaf has registered eight goals and seven assists in 11 games with a plus-9 rating and a 54.6 faceoff win percentage. This was the first time in this playoff season that the Preds looked rattled at times.

Anaheim's Ryan Kesler and Nashville's Ryan Johansen chirped and exchanged slashes, as well as other forms of creative stick work. They might have outscored the Ducks by only one goal, but their efforts were that of a team desperate to overwhelm with aggressiveness and persistent in attempts to capitalize on some undisciplined play by the Ducks.

ANA vs. NSH - Series tied 1-1 - Game three tomorrow night in Nashville. We've been a good team on the road. "We know what we can do in the room". They have to finish and ensure their frenetic energy actually gets the puck in the net.

Will it result in a different bit of officiating in Game 3?

Keith Urban performed the national anthem, the latest country star to take a turn, and his wife, actress Nicole Kidman, joined him in the stands decked out in her own Predators' sweater.

Or just have Marcus Mariota drive. Defensively, the Anaheim Ducks are allowing 2.4 goals per game and are killing 84.7 percent of their opponents power plays.

"It's huge", Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said of the win. But we still had a chance.

The Predators, who had two goals waved off in the third period, outshot the Ducks 12-7 in the final 20 minutes and 40-20 overall.

So far, the Predators have matched the Ducks almost hit for hit and still have the home-ice advantage in this series.

It was a valiant — if not foolish — decision, as McLeod received an penalty for instigating and was kicked out of the game. Perry then squeezed a wrister past Rinne from a severe angle to the right of the net. Josi and Ellis each had a point, giving them each 10 points this postseason, a Nashville record for defensemen.
