Ducks' reward for Game 7 win is date with Rinne and Preds

The second round didn't have as many overtimes games as the first round, but the games still had there excitement none the less. Pekka Rinne and company have annihilated the competition, sweeping the heavily favored Chicago Blackhawks and making nearly equally as quick work of the St. Louis Blues. It is incredible how this team's defense really can turn into its best offense.

"From a coach's eyes, that's one thing heading into Game 2 that they'll be talking about, looking at and trying to address".

Game 2 is Sunday night.

The Senators improved 6-1 in overtime during the playoffs.

The Ducks started this season slowly as well, but surged down the stretch to a fifth straight division crown and a first-round sweep of Calgary. That, and they missed many key opportunities by missing the net altogether.

In any goaltenders' duel this postseason, it would be unwise to bet against Pekka Rinne. Nick Ritchie put the Ducks ahead late in the period with a goal that Pekka Rinne would like to have back. "Any time you have a chance to play against them, you know it's going to be a battle". Rinne was 1-1-1 with a 2.63 GAA and.919 save percentage.

The best-of-7 Western Conference finals will switch to Nashville for Games 3 and 4.

During Game 1, he continued his dominant postseason performance and still hasn't allowed more than three goals.

The Ducks showed their mettle in coming back from an overwhelming Game 6 loss at Edmonton to beat the Oilers in Game 7. At the beginning of the season, it appeared this way.

In Edmonton, German forward Leon Draisaitl paced the attack with five points, including three goals, and Mark Letestu had two goals and two assists as the Oilers levelled the series at 3-3. He never saw the puck pass the goal line. For more game by game analysis, check this out.

The now-familiar ominous hush fell over Honda Center, but the Ducks got going in an unlikely scenario. Some players play with broken hand, broken leg because it's the playoffs.

When asked by Senator Marco Rubio whether Comey's abrupt dismissal would impede the work of the FBI, McCabe was adamant. President Trump defended his actions on Wednesday, saying Mr Comey was sacked "because he was not doing a good job".

While penalty killing is usually the special-teams ingredient that equates to playoff success, Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said Saturday that their power play is a significant issue with his team trailing 1-0 in the series.

The Ducks are +225 to win their second Cup.

If the Ducks hope to take this series, they are going to have to outduel Nashville's lethal blue line, and in order to do that Fowler, Lindholm and Vatanen have to get going. "We're really comfortable on home ice and on the road, and it's a good feeling to get the first one". Cogliano, who was a pain in the side of the Oilers all night long, scored his first goal of the 2017 postseason.

What has helped during the playoffs is Ryan Getzalf's newfound ability to actually shoot the puck.

The Predators had two goals on only six shots. It's hockey 101. You can't score if you don't shoot.

But the four teams left vying for the Stanley Cup this spring - the Pittsburgh Penguins and Ottawa Senators in the East and Nashville Predators and Anaheim Ducks in the West - all made a handful of significant trades to get to this point. "All those things are the staples in which you try to create a strong power play with, and right now our power play is not running at anywhere near its capability". The Ducks' penalty kill was great during the regular season, but it has taken a major beating during the playoffs.

Back in the fall, Gretzky called McDavid, who turned 20 in January, the best 19-year-old he'd ever seen. After all was said and done, the Ducks emerged with a nail-biting, heart-stopping, hard-fought 2-1 victory.

The Western Conference has come down to the Ducks vs Predators. Gibson also prevented Nashville from tying the score in the third period with saves on several shots from close range with 5:41 remaining.

For one, the Ducks aren't planting themselves in shooting lanes. Underwood is the wife of Predators center Mike Fisher. "They only had a day of rest and we were fresh".

Sure, the Ducks now have come from behind in six of their nine postseason wins.

Entering the playoffs for the first time since an unexpected run to the 2006 Stanley Cup finals, the Oilers defied modest expectations and the constant reminder that their roster was populated mostly by players with little to no playoff experience.
