Anaheim Ducks defeat Nashville Predators in overtime to even Western Conference final

Western Conference Final Game 4 Predictions

Perry ended the second overtime in this series with a goal originally credited to Thompson.

Perry's goal started when he stopped the puck on a rimming attempt from Subban and shot it toward the net. Then the Ducks won in overtime when Corey Perry's shot deflected in off the stick of defenseman P.K. Subban. I seriously question how early Ducks coach Randy Carlyle shortened his bench, it hurt his team late in the game.

"Like we've been saying all playoffs, we have a checklist that we go through every single day", Perry said.

Canada edged Germany 2-1 to set up a semifinal showdown with Russian Federation, which defeated the Czech Republic 3-0. In a postseason that has seen almost a record level of overtimes, this one proved to be one of the most exciting. Instead, with Game 5 in Anaheim, and Game 7 there if necessary, the Ducks hold the advantage. They went 4-0 in OT on their way to winning the 2007 Stanley Cup. A schedule that had Anaheim starting this series less than 48 hours after ousting Edmonton in a deciding seventh game doesn't help either.

They were staring at one of the most bitter losses in their playoff history, and that's no exaggeration.

Subban scored off a blast from the blue line to revive the standing-room only crowd with Forsberg helping screen Gibson. "What we did in Game 2 is kind of the game we want to play and that's what we have to bring in Game 4".


"You have to be smart about how you do it", said winger Andrew Cogliano.

"I think the last three or four years, we've gone through a lot", Gibson said. I know they struggled a little bit in the post-season prior to our series, but they are a terrific penalty killing team.

But that didn't stop them from forcing the game to overtime.

It was apparent the Ducks came to play Game 4 nearly before country star Kelly Clarkson finished the National Anthem. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman also was on hand with a franchise-record 17,423 fans.

Once again, the Ducks made it more hard than it had to be. They were quicker, they were everywhere, and that dictates the play. It was the seventh goal this postseason for Rakell, who led the Ducks with 33 goals during the regular season. Nashville's tight checking and zealous forechecking was rewarded when Filip Forsberg, plus-10 for the playoffs coming in, tapped in a point shot from defenseman Matt Irwin. In the first period they gave the Preadaotrs two shots on goal andd gave away the puck away only twice.

They had 6:27 minutes to catch the Ducks. After the game, Preds head coach Peter Laviolette was unwilling to give many details on his captain's ailment. Chicago scored three goals in four games.
