Ducks resting up for aggressive Preds down 2-1 in West

Ducks resting up for aggressive Preds down 2-1 in West

The Ducks finally got the faster start they missed in the first two games in Anaheim, outshooting Nashville 8-4 to open the game. They were one of the top teams on the penalty kill last year and this year.

"They're a good team, so we know every game's going to be a battle", Subban said.

The momentum was all Nashville's heading into overtime, and a win would have given the Predators a massive 3-1 series. The Predators are the first National Hockey League team to win 10 straight playoff games at home since Detroit in 1997-98.

Nick Ritchie gave the Ducks a 2-0 lead at 10:22 of the second on a wrist shot from the right faceoff circle on the rush. "We've had situations in the playoffs where we've had to deal with that", said Thompson, who was in front of the net to screen Rinne and was initially credited with the victor before it was confirmed that Perry's shot had gone off Subban.

Perry's shot redirected off Nashville's P.K. Subban and past goalie Pekka Rinne at Bridgestone Arena.

Before the puck dropped, the three-time Grammy victor hit the ice wearing a No. 82 Preds jersey to deliver a soaring version of "The Star-Spangled Banner". They have to impose their will on Nashville, clog the neutral zone and hit, hit, hit in an attempt to knock the Predators off their game.

For the first time this postseason, the Predators have surrendered home-ice advantage after seizing it in Game 1 of all three series. In a postseason that has seen almost a record level of overtimes, this one proved to be one of the most exciting.

Trump, South Korea's Moon agree to cooperate on North Korea
Those who predict that a Moon presidency will disrupt South Korean relations with the U.S. and Japan are surely mistaken. The THAAD is increasingly opposed among many South Koreans, particularly based on Trump's calls for them to pay for it.

Free agent DB McCourty signs 2-year deal with Browns
Additionally, McCourty intercepted 13 passes, which he returned for 99 yards, defended 73 others and forced seven fumbles. The 29-year-old spent his first eight seasons in Tennessee before being released by the Titans on April 17.

We are even once again in this series as we shift gears and return to Anaheim for game five, which is slated for Saturday night at 7:15 ET.

Changing assignments: The Ducks' more efficient offense early in the game was facilitated in part by Ryan Kesler no longer being required to shadow Nashville's leading playoff scorer, Ryan Johansen. "We're just trying to sell the game and make sure everyone's entertained", said defenseman Kevin Bieksa, who was added to the lineup by coach Randy Carlyle to reduce the Predators' boldness around the net.

Subban scored off a blast from the blue line to revive the standing-room only crowd with Forsberg helping screen Gibson. Goaltender John Gibson has eight wins to his name along with a 2.74 goals-against average and a save percentage of.915. "So they do a really good job at that". There have been multiple games where they blew the lead and lost the game.

It's a game four game night in Smashvile and Pred Fever keep on growing in the Music City.

For the past few years, "Ducks hockey" meant something much less complimentary entirely during the playoffs.

"It's pretty rare to see a team that expects their players to do that for a full 60 minutes, and that's what they do", Fowler said.

Fisher, who is married to singer Carrie Underwood, had 18 goals and 24 assists during the regular season but has been held without a point in the playoffs. At one stretch that bridged the first and second periods, Nashville fired 19 shots on net to the Ducks' one. He has four goals and 11 points in 14 games. Thanks to Perry, the Ducks will return to Anaheim with the series tied at two games apiece. "They were confident", Predators head coach Peter Laviolette said afterward. The Ducks previously had allowed three shots in a period in the postseason six different times, the last in the first period of Game 5 of the Western finals May 25, 2015, against Chicago.
