NHL: Nashville led the series with "Anaheim" in the Stanley Cup finals

Game three of the NHL Western Conference final series moves to Nashville as the Predators and the Anaheim Ducks are tied 1-1. Nashville won 2-1 to take a 2-1 series lead.

Sweden's Jakob Silfverberg, Sami Vatanen, Ondrej Kase and Antoine Vermette, into an empty net, also scored for the Ducks, who avoided going into an 0-2 hole for the second straight series with the win. Through the first two games, Predators center Ryan Johansen has four points, including two in the first ten minutes of Game 2.

Especially not on home ice.

"That's really it", Ekholm said.

As Predators head coach Peter Laviolette said of Johansen, "He's played terrific ..." As the physical play between the two exponentially increased in the second and third periods, it pushed Johansen over the edge.

Forsberg tied the game at one with his goal at the 3:54 mark of the third period. "I don't know what's going through his head out there", Johansen said. "We knew the building was going to be loud and they were going to come hard. We just need to get back to playing our game".

Johansen may not have to worry about Kesler's stick as often the next two games, including Game 3 Tuesday night. Neal didn't score a goal in his first five games but has five in his last seven.

What tells more of the head-to-head story between Kesler & Johansen, that Kesler is 64% on draws, or Johansen has 75% of H2H shot attempts? And besides, Anaheim had lost the opening two games at home against the Edmonton Oilers in the previous round and still went on to win that series in seven games.

They have gone 1-1 on the road against the defending Stanley Cup champions in the Eastern Conference final. Josi ended that drought with his wrister from the right circle off an assist from Viktor Arvidsson.

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. Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan held up a big catfish, and Urban later was shown on the video board holding up a big catfish.

But the Predators took the next 11 shots and outshot Anaheim 40-20 for the game.

On Anaheim's side, the Ducks must alleviate the pressure on Gibson, who has mostly stood tall to slow a wild Preds offense. And that's the most encouraging part, because we can play better than what we played tonight. This must mean they took more accurate shots and/or the Ducks defense was allowing the Predators to take many shots on goal. Officials waived the goal off since the net came off the moorings.

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.

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. Perry opened the scoring on the ensuing Ducks power play, leaving the home crowd noticeably upset.
