The Ducks now trail the best-of-seven series 3-2. However it would not stop them from winning the game 3 to 1 against the Anaheim Ducks.

It wasn't a flawless win for the Predators by any means, but the work by Aberg and Wilson has Nashville one victory away from its first-ever Stanley Cup Final appearance. In his next shift, he scored the game-winning goal and never returned to play, as he was pulled by a concussion spotter. Moments before he made a Bobby Orr-like leap and scored the biggest goal of his career, the 23-year-old had lost a tooth after being driven face-first onto the ice. In Johansen's case, the traumatic event was likely when his left leg went awkwardly into the boards following a hit from the Ducks' Josh Manson in the second period of Game 4, per Grady Sas of TSN 1050. Jonathan Bernier made 16 saves for the Ducks.

Game five of the Western Conference Finals turned ugly with just under 10 seconds remaining.

"That's my responsibility to understand that there are eyes and ears on us all the time", Getzlaf said. The Predators goalie has had a Conn Smyth-worthy post-season, with an nearly unfair 1.62 goals-against average and.942 save percentage. This comes shortly before Game 5 against the Nashville Predators.

"I think that the guys are dealing with everything really well", Nashville Head Coach Peter Laviolette said. "We've got to do a better job maintaining what we want to do with our game plan, because they played hard tonight". They could hear the cheering fans the instant they stepped off the plane, and Laviolette said he knows Monday night will be insane.

"He was great last night", Josi said. "So it's something we're focused on, but it's just about that next game and getting the next win".

Like most of the hockey world, the Anaheim Ducks didn't find out about Ryan Johansen's playoff-ending injury until Friday afternoon.

"Well, it seems that when the pressure's been applied, we've responded in the proper manner, and I would expect the same", Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said.

It was Wilson's second playoff goal this season and first since Nashville's first game against the St. Louis Blues on April 26. "We need to step up".

An incredible play by Ekholm led to Aberg's first ever playoff goal, 2-1.

Aberg had to send himself flying across the crease to swat home a rebound of Filip Forsberg's shot for the Predators, epitomizing Nashville's persistent effort through a defensive victory. Wilson converted a backhand shot of an initial shot from P.K. Subban.

Brian Dumoulin and Olli Maatta added goals to help Pittsburgh take a 3-0 lead midway through the second period. Brandon Montour penetrated into the deep slot for a wrist shot that Rinne could not control. Unfortunately, the Ducks could not convert on any of their power plays. Mike Fisher AND Johansen were out. Fisher left Game 4 in the third period with an undisclosed injury. But that will have to come without winger Patrick Eaves and center Rickard Rakell. LW Nicolas Kerdiles replaced Rakell.
