Filip Forsberg comes through again for Predators against Ducks in Game 3

It helps us so much, especially with those two goals.

In yet another physical game, the first period was relatively uneventful with neither team scoring and only one penalty against Anaheim.

"Gibby gave us a chance".

Nick Ritchie got the game-winning goal late in the period and Antione Vermette scored an insurance goal in the third.

The Ducks managed to even the series with the Predators thanks to a 5-3 win in Game 2.

“I think P.K. has had a terrific year, ” Predators head coach Peter Laviolette said earlier in the series.

In an downtown atmosphere never seen before, the Predators came out buzzing, firing shot after shot only to be turned away time and time again by Ducks' goaltender John Gibson.

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

Game three is Thursday night.

Josi's goal was set up by a bad penalty by the Ducks' Chris Wagner for high-sticking Ellis with 3:55 left. They might have outscored the Ducks by only one goal, but their efforts were that of a team desperate to overwhelm with aggressiveness and persistent in attempts to capitalize on some undisciplined play by the Ducks. Pekka should bounce back nicely in Game 3.

"We did a good job", Josi said. "We know what we can do in the room". "I just wound up, took a look, and everybody was diving, and legs were trying to get in the way of the shot". And when we say big, we mean they were literally big guys.

It was the fourth time Poile, whose Predators reached the conference final for the first time in franchise history, was recognized for the award.

Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota waved the rally towel along with his offensive linemen from the band stage. It's Nashville's answer to the octopus Detroit fans traditionally throw on the ice for good luck.

Corey Perry got the Ducks out to a 1-0 advantage in the second period.

But the Predators took the next 11 shots and outshot Anaheim 40-20 for the game. "And on one flurry it went to 14", Carlyle said.

Josi, Ryan Ellis and Filip Forsberg combined for 20 shots on goal, matching the total of the entire Ducks roster.

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.
