Around the NHL: Pair of Game 5s Coming for Conference Finals

Around the NHL: Pair of Game 5s Coming for Conference Finals

Sweden, which was boosted by the arrival of center Nicklas Backstrom and goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, booked its quarterfinal place later Sunday with a 4-2 win over Denmark. If they win two games on the road they can close out the series in six games. The Oilers regularly donate their hat-trick hats, and that's exactly what happened with this colossal cap haul.

The Anaheim Ducks look to regain home ice advantage and take a solid 2-1 series lead with a victory here.

Nashville's top two scorers in the playoffs are forwards Filip Forsberg and Ryan Johansen; their next three top point producers are all defensemen, which indicates just how balanced a team they are from a scoring perspective. Once they coolly opened a crack in Rinne and the Nashville Predators, they started a deluge that evened the series.

Arvidsson made a Erik Karlsson-like backhand lob pass over a cluster of defenders on Johansen's breakaway goal. I like Nashville to take the opener tonight.

Having mounted little attack to start the game, the Ducks looked to have taken a 1-0 lead with 8:18 elapsed in the second period.

Nonetheless the Anaheim Ducks won game two in an exciting fashion.

Iran vice president pulls out of election, backs Rouhani
Thousands of posts by pro-Raisi camp include hashtags such as "we will not make the same mistake" and "change for the people". He was deputy head of the judiciary for 10 years before being appointed in 2014 as Iran's prosecutor-general.

The Ducks see the problem as largely mental, and they intend to address it in the hours before the series resumes.

Both goaltenders were superb in Game 1 but struggled Sunday night as they lost track of pucks, were beaten from bad angles, and fought the puck like a stubborn in-law for the better part of 60 minutes.

The Ducks also got two important pieces from Vancouver: shutdown center Ryan Kesler at the 2014 draft and defenseman Kevin Bieksa a year later.

James Neal has gotten hot at the right time. "We need to play the same way, and they're going to go in some time".

In case you want to read a delusion opinion on Gibson from ESPN.com "NHL Expert" Andrew Knoll, here it is. "Maybe sometimes we shouldn't wait for that to get going".

"Usually when I get the puck in those types of positions, everybody is expecting me to shoot it", Subban said. The players are too good. Converting on just one of those opportunities could have changed the outcome entirely.

"Gibby played well for us", Perry said.

The overtime trend continued in the series opener between the Penguins and Senators.

That will need to be fixed in a hurry.

"We understand, they wait", Malkin said. Pekka should bounce back nicely in Game 3. "Whatever they did is fine, but it's on us". Nashville saw two goals wiped off the board for interference. "And on one flurry it went to 14", Carlyle said. But, as they had done time and time again, they managed to dig themselves out and for the fourth time of these playoffs won a game where they had trailed 2-0. The message seemed to be received, though, in the form of a 5-3 loss. Headlined: "Anaheim Ducks goalie John Gibson keeps emotions - and his opposition - in check", clearly Mr. Knoll and I don't share the same viewpoint. He stopped 43 of the 46 shots he faced, despite being victimized on a few tough bounces.

As a massive fan of the Nashville Predators, Chris Young has loved the history-making moves that the professional hockey team has been making throughout their journey to the Stanley Cup.
