Ducks even series with Predators 2-2

Ducks even series with Predators 2-2

They were one of the top teams on the penalty kill last year and this year.

The Ducks prevailed with an overtime goal by Corey Perry that gave them a 3-2 win in overtime.

The Anaheim Ducks take on the Predators tonight in Nashville, where the Predators have won 10 straight playoff games going back to previous year. The home team got off to a awful start (outshot 14-2 in the first period), trailed by two well into the third period but managed to get it to overtime with two goals in the final six and half minutes of regulation, the second by Filip Forsberg with 34.5 seconds to go and the Nashville net empty. Perry stopped the puck as the Predators tried to clear and shot from the right boards at a severe angle. Corey Perry provided the game victor. "You can't score if you don't get pucks towards the net with traffic and second opportunities", Perry told reporters. Returning home with home ice stolen away for the remainder of the series, the Preds hit the gas and applied the pressure late in the game to come away winners of a 2-1 game. In a postseason that has seen almost a record level of overtimes, this one proved to be one of the most exciting. The loss snapped a 10-game home winning streak in the playoffs for Nashville. They went 4-0 in OT on their way to winning the 2007 Stanley Cup.

Game 5 is Saturday night in Anaheim. "And they're a good team, a strong team", Ducks left wing Andrew Cogliano said of the Predators.

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.

It had been one of the nuttiest third periods in Predators history.

Subban scored off a blast from the blue line to revive the standing-room only crowd with Forsberg helping screen Gibson. "We didn't do that in Game 3, and that's what we're going to have to do from now on". "That's Ducks hockey for you right there", he said cheerfully. "I think we've been doing that". You could tell they were more energized by taking the lead. Let's take a look at tonight's National Hockey League playoff predictions.

Then again, he probably would have liked if his teammates had mustered more than just two shots on the Ducks' net in the first period. "We need to play the same way, and they're going to go in some time". It was the seventh goal this postseason for Rakell, who led the Ducks with 33 goals during the regular season. Filip Forsberg sent the game to overtime by scoring the tying goal with 34.5 seconds left as a sold out Bridgestone Arena rejoiced.

"We were on our heels", Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. A few tickets for game four were still available as of Thursday morning.

"It's tough when you give up that many goals in the first period you don't really give yourself or your team a chance in the game", Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said.

Forsberg leads the team with six goals while Josi and James Neal have each scored five goals. Viktor Arvidsson had two assists for Nashville.
