Ducks even Western Conference series with 5-3 win over Predators

Nick Ritchie's tiebreaking goal at 17:07 of the second period was a wrister from the left faceoff circle that flew over Rinne's blocker into the net's roof.

If the Anaheim Ducks thought they had taken control of the Western Conference finals after dropping five goals on the Nashville Predators on Sunday, they thought wrong.

The Penguins didn't lack for opportunities to jump on the Senators but four first-period power plays - including 45 seconds of a 5-on-3 - went nowhere.

Especially not on home ice.

Forsberg scored the tying goal for the Predators in their 2-1 win against the Anaheim Ducks in Game 3 of the Western Conference Final at Bridgestone Arena on Tuesday. Not only did the Predators kill off the penalty, they came back and eventually scored on a power play of their own to defeat the Ducks 2-1 on Tuesday night. They're 6-0 at home in these playoffs and have won 10 straight home playoff games dating to last season.

The two centers have taken center stage as they trade words, elbows, and cheap shots on the ice. The Ducks rallied to take a 4-3 lead entering the third period. "I don't know what's going through his head over there".

"Gibby played well for us", Perry said. "He allowed us to stay in the game".

Game 4 is set for Thursday in Nashville.

Filip Forsberg, Predators - Forsberg has a goal in all three games in the series, bringing his playoff point total to 11. Johansen started the scoring off in the first period and later added an assist.

Whether it ends in regulation or goes past, look for the Ducks to come up with the close win and square the series.

Johnny Depp: I'd take over 'SNL's' Trump impersonation
When Degeneres asked him if he'd ever do his Trump impersonation on " SNL ", Depp said, "sure". And you see this incredible courage in their faces.

The Predators insist they can play that game too - and keep their cool no matter what pesky Ducks center Ryan Kesler does. Josi was assisted on his goal by Viktor Arvidsson and Mattias Ekholm.

"We did a good job", Josi said. "We know what we can do in the room". I say this since the Predators in the first round of the 2016 NHL Playoffs won the first two games in Anaheim. "Every one gets more important as we go forward".

To start the festivities, the surprise singer of the National Anthem for the night was none other than award-winning country artist Keith Urban.

Or just have Marcus Mariota drive. Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan held up a big catfish, and Urban later was shown on the video board holding up a big catfish.

The Pittsburgh Penguins (2008) and Los Angeles Kings (2012-13) had nine-game streaks in recent years, but not since the Colorado Avalanche in 1996 and 1997 has a team gotten to double digits.

When Ottawa scores the first goal, as they did in Game 1, they can tighten the screws with their modified trap and make it hard for Pittsburgh to produce scoring chances created with their speed through the middle of the ice, which they are used to doing against many teams.

Carlyle admitted that as a whole on the night, the Predators did outshoot, but did not believe as it was dominant at the shot clock said it was. "And we received the game a lot". He stood tall in the net and he gave us a chance. And that's the most encouraging part, because we can play better than what we played tonight. No one has gotten to the Predators since.

It was a valiant — if not foolish — decision, as McLeod received an penalty for instigating and was kicked out of the game. Perry then squeezed a wrister past Rinne from a severe angle to the right of the net.

Roman Josi, Predators - Josi is tied with fellow defenseman Ryan Ellis with 10 points in these playoffs, second in the National Hockey League behind Erik Karlsson. Toronto coach Mike Babcock was spotted at the game.
