Nashville Predators vs. Anaheim Ducks - 5/16/17 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Nashville Predators vs. Anaheim Ducks - 5/16/17 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

They faced relatively little adversity while steamrolling Chicago and St. Louis in the first two rounds on the way to the first conference finals in franchise history.

Nashville Predators goalie Pekka Rinne (35) blocks a shot from Anaheim Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf as Nashville Predators defenseman Mattias Ekholm looks on during the second period of Game 1 in the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Wester.

What's Next: The series shifts to Bridgestone Arena in Nashville for Game 3, which will be played Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET.

Again, though, the story isn't necessarily about how the Ducks came back to tie and ultimately win the game 5-3, but about Nashville's inability to control the puck when it needed to.

Roman Josi scored on a power play late in the third period to give the Nashville Predators a 2-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks and a 2-1 series lead in their Western Conference finals.

"Usually when I get the puck in those types of positions, everybody is expecting me to shoot it", Subban said.

The Nashville Predators finally are facing their first real adversity this postseason, with the Anaheim Ducks eager to push, hit and poke them out of what's already been a historic run.

The U.S. moved to the top of Group A, one point ahead of Russian Federation, which has a game in hand. Theodore leads the blue line with eight points in the playoffs, while Fowler has seven and Montour six.

Chris Wagner went to the box for high-sticking Nashville defenseman Ryan Ellis with 3:55 left in the Ducks' offensive zone. They even had less power plays but converted on half of them. "It's not that we didn't show up and play hard, or we weren't ready to compete or ... we played good teams". "We know what we can do in the room".

After the game Johansen accused Ducks forward Ryan Kesler of being dirty player.

They don't ask how, they just ask how many.

AAP takes EVM protest to Election Commission
Articulating AAP's demand, Bharadwaj said any party could name five booths where they suspected EVMs had been tampered with. Bhardwaj, himself an engineer, showed how it could be tampered with to favour a particular candidate.

Because of it, fans were treated to a wild, back-and-forth game where every shot was a scoring chance and no lead was safe.

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.

Clearly, knocking Johansen off his game is important for Anaheim to advance.

The Predators, who had two goals waved off in the third period, outshot the Ducks 12-7 in the final 20 minutes and 40-20 overall.

"There are a lot of things to like, but it's just one game", Boucher said. But we still had a chance. "That's the best part of it".

The Ducks eventually got around to replying with high-octane hockey - and a few fortunate bounces - that was too much even for Rinne, who hadn't given up four goals in a game since March 13.

So far, the Predators have matched the Ducks almost hit for hit and still have the home-ice advantage in this series.

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. Thirty-nine seconds into the second, Jakob Silfverberg potted his ninth goal of the postseason, tying Pittsburgh's Jake Guentzel for the most in the playoffs.

By his own estimate, it took Ottawa's Bobby Ryan a full 82 games to adjust to first-year coach Guy Boucher's system.
