Ducks even Western finals at 2, beating Predators 3-2 in OT

Ducks even Western finals at 2, beating Predators 3-2 in OT”

The International Ice Hockey Federation also has been willing to discuss options, but acknowledged a "game-changer" offer was likely needed for NHL team owners to change their minds about halting the league schedule for three weeks.

Josi scored on the first power-play tally of the series for Nashville, burying the rebound after Mattias Ekholm's effort cannoned off Viktor Arvidsson.

The Ducks controlled the game's pacing early on, outshooting Nashville 14-2 in the first period and were aggressive from the outset. Nashville's power play is 1-for-17 in this series.

Forsberg tied it up with his third goal in as many games. The point of contact was high, but it was a clean hit. That will likely be determined right before puck-drop. To McLeod's credit, he rained some pretty heavy blows down on Boll.

The Predators had been dominating possession in the period again. As much flack as Anaheim rightfully gets, they provide the ideal villain for a conference final thanks to the terrible way they carry themselves on the ice. It was his third overtime goal of the 2017 playoffs.

Perry's goal came just after the Ducks had a potential score waved off by referee Brad Meier. Fitting, because it was a gift of a goal.

The Predators had a 10-shot advantage over the final two periods and overtime. It was a well-placed shot.

PIT vs. OTT - OTT leads 2-1 - Game four is tomorrow night in Ottawa.

They got goals from Rickard Rakell and Nick Ritchie. And twice, that call was correct.

Leave it to John Gibson and Nate Thompson to ensure that happened.

The Ducks carried some good momentum into Game 3 after scoring four goals on Pekka Rinne in a 5-3 come-from-behind victory in Game 2 at home. It went off of my stick and in. The idea was to put more fuel in the tank.

Six-time Cup-winning defenseman Kevin Lowe said he and Gretzky agreed the 1987 Oilers were the best of the bunch of teams that filled the rafters in Edmonton with blue, white and orange banners during one of the finest eras of hockey dominance, even though it took seven games to beat the Philadelphia Flyers in the final.

Prior to the game, the spotlight was trained on the burgeoning beef between Ryan Johansen and Ryan Kesler. Could the young powerhouse forward be undone by the wily veteran? Better to save it for when it mattered the most.

"You think you're playing a good game". Ryan Kesler is very not.

Here are three things to watch. If Getzlaf, Perry or Silfverberg are not on the ice, the Ducks' offense dries up.

The Ducks only had 20 shots on goal which is half of what the Predators had. Especially when allowing 40. Few teams skate through an entire playoff without a gut-check or two. The Ducks would have won had their defense stepped up. If he can keep it that way tonight, it'll be an outstanding performance for Anderson, who has never seen a conference finals before this year.
