Ducks in a familiar, if uncomfortable, playoff position vs. Oilers

Ducks in a familiar, if uncomfortable, playoff position vs. Oilers

Defensemen Ryan Ellis and Roman Josi also scored, and Colton Sissons added two assists. John Gibson made 27 saves. Overall, Holtby's postseason numbers don't inspire confidence - 22 goals allowed in eight starts and a.911 save percentage - but Trotz is sticking with his guns as the Caps head to Pittsburgh in an 0-2 hole.

The Oilers were outshot by Anaheim, 40-23. The victory ensures that they'll get at least one more game in California.

Letestu said coach Todd McLellan's unsuccessful challenge for goaltender interference and a subsequent television time out were helpful to setting aside the shock of those goals.

"You hope you can capitalize when you get opportunities", said Cogliano.

Edmonton's first playoff appearance in 11 years is off to a rollicking start, with the Oilers following up their six-game defeat of defending Western Conference champions San Jose by taking two games from the five-time champions of their division.

Defender Ryan Shawcross accidentally deflected Josh King's strike into his own net. The goals came from midfielders Wilfred Ndidi, Riyad Mahrez, and Marc Albrighton.

The Oilers returned to their dressing room with the lead despite getting just three shots on goal, compared to 12 for the Ducks.

"We can't really stress over what happened last game or what happened in Game 2", said Oilers winger Patrick Maroon.

Ducks defenseman Kevin Bieksa injured his knee during the first period, colliding with a teammate.

That's Ducks defenceman Josh Manson on being down 0-2 in the series.

"We might even be a better spot, but we have to respond".

That Anaheim was able to buckle down for a 6-3 win in Game 3 Sunday was a testament to the veteran mettle that was said to give it the inside track to the Stanley Cup Finals. Larsson rushed the puck and as he was about to go behind the Anaheim net, he tossed the puck toward the front of the net. "Obviously you're paying attention to what the Ducks are doing up top".

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Cody McLeod scored the game-winner early in the second period, and Nashville grabbed a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference semifinal.

Game 3: Capitals at Penguins, 7:30 p.m. ET (Penguins lead series 2-0) - Capitals coach Barry Trotz yanked goalie Braden Holtby in Game 2's blowout loss after the reigning Vezina Trophy victor surrendered his sixth goal of the series (he's faced just 35 shots). As fans cheered a hard hit behind the net on Oilers captain Connor McDavid, Sekera blasted a wrist shot past Gibson on the first shot of the game. The goal was similar to his first score, as he converted a rebound of a Draisaitl shot.

It is a toughness and resilience that will be put to a stern test in Wednesday night against the Anaheim Ducks as the Oilers try to regain their balance in a series that, even though they're leading 2-1, seems to be tipping the other way.

Given that McDavid is the next coming of Wayne Gretzky in some people's eyes, this play would not be worthy of sharing unless the dynamic talent finished the score and tied things up. Anaheim did not dress D Korbinian Holzer, D Simon Depres, RW Jared Boll and D Sami Vatanen. Anaheim signed LW Jack Kopacka to a three-year entry level contract on Monday. At this point, it is very likely this series could go six or seven games long, and that just means some more McDavid plays for us to watch and be amazed by.

Palace win proves Spurs can be kings
In the first-half, the 24-year-old was undoubtedly the most exciting player on the pitch, as he terrorised the right wing. But our fatigue told in the end and that made it hard to put them under serious pressure in the second-half.
