Stanley Cup playoffs: Josi's late goal gives Predators 2-1 series lead

20 May 2017, 03:26 | Pamela Mathis

Even the best have an off night, and Rinne was out of sorts in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Anaheim Ducks at the Honda Center.

The visitors jumped out of the gate with a pair of goals in the eight and a half minutes.

Anaheim had nothing going through the first 19 minutes of game 2 and they needed a spark in a big way. He's now found the back of the net in each of the three games of the series.

Forsberg tied it up with his third goal in as many games.

Minus the intermission, it was two goals in a span of 99 seconds for the Ducks. "That's what our project is, to continue to develop him into a power forward and to have that release and weapon he has become more evident to the hockey world". For the second straight game, Corey Perry was held without a shot on goal. It was a tough night for Gibson, who made several spectacular saves to keep the Ducks ahead through two periods. The Chicago Blackhawks were unable to disrupt the Predators during their first-round sweep, and St. Louis won twice on home ice by drawing penalties in a series the Predators finished in six games.

With Nashville leading 3-2, Rinne gave a up a rebound of Shea Theodore's point shot through traffic. Ritchie received an entry feed from Getzlaf and threw a wrister from a ridiculous angle that snuck above Rinne's blocker. On the whole, though, this is one he'll like to forget.

Ritchie also scored the victor in game seven against the Edmonton Oilers to advance the Ducks to the National Hockey League semi-finals. "But with that being said, I think we did a pretty good job in the neutral zone". Jakob Silfverberg opened the scoring at 5:15 of the first period on Anaheim's first shot of the game.

Senate Judiciary Committee requests Comey memos-and Trump's recordings of those conversations
The description in the purported memo "is not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the President and Mr. Graham, R-S.C., who told the press: "I've asked Comey to come before the Judiciary Committee to tell his side of the story".


It may be the Ducks and Predators in the Western Conference Final, but after only two games, all anyone wants to talk about is the budding rivalry of Ryan Johansen and Ryan Kesler.

And while the Preds' Power Play has struggled much of the series, this time they would not be stopped.

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.

"You've got to be in here to feel the energy", Josi said. "From the flip side, the positive is we lost in overtime, so I think we were able to weather the storm in terms of how (Nashville) came out". But even with the Predators controlling the last line change, head coach Peter Laviolette did not shelter the teams top scorer from the Ducks top checkers.

Said Kesler to Sportsnet's Christine Simpson: "He's a skilled player and I play the game hard". They're both playing hard. Johansen started the scoring off in the first period and later added an assist.

Then again, it's not like Kesler is shutting down Johansen, regardless of where his stick winds up. While Johansen has the clear edge on the scoresheet, Kesler has ramped up the physicality ten-fold - most notably getting away with a nasty elbow to the head of Johansen. "There are not many goals that are going to be scored now that are going to be nice".

ANA vs. NSH - Series tied 1-1 - Game three tomorrow night in Nashville. "And he goes into the areas and can make plays with good players".
