Pens, Sens, Preds, Ducks traded their way to NHL's final 4

18 May, 2017, 01:46 | Author: Glenda Knight

Ryan Johansen, James Neal and Filip Forsberg scored for the Predators, and Viktor Arvidsson collected two assists.

The Anaheim Ducks have evened the NHL's Western Conference finals at a game apiece by erasing deficits of 2-0 and 3-2 in a 5-3 verdict over the visiting Nashville Predators. "I mean, had you asked us if we'd be in this position or we'd enjoy being in this position a couple months back, I'm pretty sure we'd take it".

"He [Johansen] knows it's going to come", Ellis said. I think any time you gain experience, even last year in the playoffs and now this year, I think he's just becoming more experienced, more mature as a player, and I think he's played well. "He thinks he's getting under guys' skin, but I don't know what he's doing". Jason came off stage, we were all backstage...me, him, Kane (Brown), a big group of people all watching the Preds game, when they took game one from Anaheim.

ABOUT THE PREDATORS: A game within the game is developing between Nashville's Ryan Johansen and Anaheim's Ryan Kesler, with the Predators' top line center bristling at what he considers suspect tactics by his counterpart.

Heading into the game, the most of the talk was about the ongoing battle between Ryan Johansen and Kesler, whose on-ice feud had spilled into a war of words off the ice.

Game 3 is Tuesday night in Nashville.

The teams played a scoreless first period, though the Predators surged toward the end of the opening 20 minutes, taking 13 of the last 14 shots on goal. They faced relatively little adversity while steamrolling Chicago and St. Louis in the first two rounds on the way to the first conference finals in franchise history.

Vatanen, Jakob Silfverberg and Ondrej Kase also scored for the Ducks before Antoine Vermette added an empty-netter. However in the 2017 NHL Playoffs that was not the case as the Ducks were able to secure game two at home.

That is such a heavy quote, mostly for two reasons - it propels this series into a war of words while also giving Kesler some level of justification for what he does on the ice. "We don't want to put the pressure that you people put on it that it's end-all", said Carlyle. The two could be seen jousting throughout Sunday's Game 2, with Kesler appearing to catch Johansen with an apparent elbow in the third period. I'm not going to say they didn't.

One game in and the Senators have done to the Penguins what Washington and Columbus could not: grab control of the series.

"Gibby gave us a chance".

Continue to improve on face-offs, get back to clogging the neutral zone and make the Ducks chase the puck instead of driving it uncharacteristically past the blueline. "He was a good defensive player when he got here".

Mariota left the beer chugging to his offensive counterparts though and instead waved his Predators rally towel. The spirited exchange resulted in a two-minute instigator penalty for McLeod and a furious tirade directed at the officials by Nashville coach Peter Laviolette, who felt Boll's hit merited a penalty. "Whether it's overtime or third period or we're leading or we're trailing". Anaheim's defense outscored Nashville's six points to two.
