National Hockey League playoffs: Ducks eager for rematch with Rinne's Predators in West final

James Neal's goal gives Predators OT win over Ducks

James Neal's goal gives Predators OT win over Ducks

The Nashville Predators are a flawless three-for-three when it comes to taking a 1-0 series lead in these playoffs, and they'll try to steal a second meeting from the Anaheim Ducks in Game Two of the Western Conference Final this evening.

Silfverberg scored again in Game 1 against the Predators, which gives him 35 points over his past 35 playoff games dating back to 2015. "We got that game, and it was a huge goal in overtime for us to be able to get that, and now we're going to Game Two".

Drake Caggiula got credit for Edmonton's goal, and Talbot made 28 saves.

- Although Gibson's statistics haven't been that gaudy in the playoffs, it is noteworthy that his save percentage in 5-on-5 situations was.938 going into Game 1.

John Gibson's performance between the pipes had a lot to do with that, and might be the biggest positive to come from this contest for the Ducks.

"Last year, we were in a close game, played well in Game 6 and ... overtime,"said Holtby". If they can split the first two games like they did in St. Louis in the second round, they will have the advantage in the series.

"I think what we did in the second round is we solidified an identity of a pretty scrappy, resilient never-die team", head coach Todd McLellan said.

"We're just trying to shoot where there is open spot", Kuznetsov said. James Neal (2G, 1 A) and Filip Forsberg (2G, 1A) each led Nashville with three points.

"Pekka has been great since the first game of the playoffs against Chicago", Neal said. We've got your way to live stream the game on May 10 at 10pm EST.

Special teams have become a mini-crisis: Randy Carlyle's squad hasn't scored a power play goal in two full weeks.

The Ducks also suffered from failures to score when they had opportunities, especially on power plays. "It doesn't hurt the psyche, that's for sure, because I think it takes a little frustration out of your game if you finally crack through a little bit".

With a total of 42 goals were scored in the first six games - two of which went to overtime, one can only hope Game 7 follows the same helter-skelter form as the previous meetings.

Concussed on May 1, Sidney Crosby returned five days later and didn't look at his best Monday after crashing headfirst into the boards.

"No guy will use the short turnaround from Game 7 as an excuse", Thompson said. Will they be caught up in the moment or will they continue to be aggressive? "They're a good hockey club, and it's going to be a tough series". Heading into the conference final, he ranks first in save percentage (.951) and goals-against average (1.37), and tied with the now-eliminated Cam Talbot for the most shutouts (two) in the playoffs. It was his first goal of postseason. The Ducks won two of their three games (including one shootout win) and outscored the Predators 10-9 in those games. He turned back 43 of 46 shots on goal. The Senators' resiliency pushed them through Round 2, as they came back to win Games 1, 2 and 5. Watson one-timed a slap shot off a cross-ice feed from Johansen that deflected off Anaheim defenseman Sami Vatanen and into the net with Ekholm earning the additional assist.

NOTES: Nashville scratched D Anthony Bitetto, RW P.A. Parenteau, RW Craig Smith, RW Miikka Salomaki, D Brad Hunt, LW Harry Zolnierczyk and C Frederick Gaudreau.

"I've got to believe that (the momentum from Game 6 is) going to roll over, that they're finally sick and exhausted of hearing that they haven't gone to the third round and will break through", Boudreau said. Their last Game 7 victory at home came in the first round in 2009 with Boudreau behind the bench when Sergei Fedorov scored the victor to knock off the Rangers.
