Predators regain series lead...Ducks whip Oilers

Leading their second-round playoff series against the Ducks 2-0 and at home for Game 3, the Oilers were unable to take a stranglehold, falling 6-3 to Anaheim.

It was Karlsson's first goal and seventh point of the playoffs.

NOTES: The teams will get an extra day of rest after Sunday's Game 3, with Game 4 scheduled in Edmonton for Wednesday at 8 p.m. local time.... They'll also need to find a way to crack the 29-year-old netminder in a bid to avoid embarrassment and claw their way back in this one.

It turns out the Oilers' young star might not have been bluffing.

The Oilers now head home to Edmonton for the next two games with a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. Evgeny Kuznetsov tied it in the third, but Marc-Andre Fleury made 15 of his 32 saves in the final period to help the defending Stanley Cup champions to the victory.

Despite his team's apparent lack of big-game bona fides, the kid captain says his team is uniquely built for this moment. We've dealt with these situations all year long. People are hard on us. "I'm sure many Edmontonians could use a warm vacation in Anaheim, with all the fun activities we have to offer here". I mean, he's been excellent for us.

"We didn't panic or anything".

But we're seeing a different Rinne in this series: He has already allowed double his first-round total through Games 1 and 2 of the second round, for a save percentage of.880. "We have some experienced guys, we have some unexperienced guys".

"Tonight, it really showed we have to come out with that attack mentality", Silfverberg said. With the series now tied at one game apiece, the Predators will need him to recapture his earlier brilliance as they host the Blues for Game 3.

Should the Ducks hold on to this lead, they'll cut Edmonton's series lead to 2-1. That's when McDavid learned a lesson that should serve him well the rest of his career.

"The guys have always believed in our depth", McDavid said. "We're doing a lot of good stuff out there, and it's the last piece that's missing, and it's correctable". "Even if they don't capitalize on it, it gives them momentum".

Anaheim defenseman Cam Fowler, who returned to the lineup after missing the entire Calgary series, knows that the path to victory needs to come by giving the talented Oilers fewer chances to score with the man advantage. Defenseman Kris Russell had a pair of assists for the Oilers, who took Game 1 of the series 5-3 and Game 2 by a score of 2-1.

But the Oilers don't care about their opponents' playoff pedigrees. That includes limited time on the second power play unit.

"We had another team do it against us and coaches steal", said Carlyle, who then watched Jakob Silfverberg and Getzlaf get two more in the first six shots. We're not just going to throw the video out and say, 'See you later'.

Because back-to-back losses in the playoffs equals one foot in the grave. "You couldn't even shorten the bench - there were that many (players) that were erring on a consistent basis".

He gave some of them back on Sunday. When you get to eight, four and two teams left, the teams that you're playing against are very good. I keep saying that. But that being said, if you look at the season that they had, the Flames were last place in the league in November.
