Nashville defeated Anaheim 3-2 in OT in Game 1 as they were the far superior team that night and took advantage of a Ducks team coming off a hard fought and grueling seven-game series victory in the second round against Edmonton. Game 3 and Game 4 are Tuesday and Thursday at Bridgestone Arena.
After an overshadowed 43-save outing in Game 1 and a standout 30-save performance in the Ducks' series-tying win in Game 2, Gibson appeared to be taking over this series.
The Predators were always able to remain in touch with goalie Pekka Rinne making 19 saves for the win, with the Ducks' John Gibson blocking 38 shots.
ABOUT THE PREDATORS: A game within the game is developing between Nashville'sRyan Johansen and Anaheim'sRyan Kesler, with the Predators' top line center bristling at what he considers suspect tactics by his counterpart.
The Ducks have gotten production from a variety of players in the first two games. Hampus Lindholm scored for his first goal of the playoffs to even the score. Jakob Silfverberg leads Anaheim with nine goals, Ryan Getzlaf has 10 assists and Rickard Rakell has 42 shots on goal.
"We just stayed with it", Josi said. "Maybe sometimes we shouldn't wait for that to get going".
The Predators have been a model of consistency while going 9-2 in the post-season, and they think much of the credit should be placed on a defensive corps that might be the best in the playoffs.
Ducks coach Randy Carlyle paid tribute to Gibson's shot-stopping work in goal. Nashville RW Craig Smith missed his third straight game. After allowing just 16 goals in the first 11 games, Rinne permitted four goals on 26 shots Sunday, including a pair high to the blocker side - an area Anaheim believes it can beat the 6-foot-5 netminder.
His ability to respond after a defeat has mirrored his team.
After two Predators' goals were waved off due to goalie interference, Nashville was determined to make the last one stick.
It's pretty sweet they all had personalized jerseys.
"So nobody should expect to go through the playoffs and not ever lose a game". And with how close and how physical both teams have been playing, you can bet the officials will once again have their hands full. The veteran sniper has found the net in each of the first two games. They're finding holes better.
While Young may be busy on the road for the They Don't Know Tour with Jason Aldean as well as promoting his brand new single, "Losing Sleep", but he still squeezes in enough time to bring his "fang fingers" out on display to watch the boys in gold and navy move on to the next playoff round. The message seemed to be received, though, in the form of a 5-3 loss.
