Predators take series lead

They were taking two shots for every one attempted by the Anaheim Ducks, but between the great play of goalie John Gibson and their inability to bury chances, the Predators entered the third period 20 minutes from trailing 2-1 in the Western Conference Final.

Perry's goal saved what would have been an embarrassing collapse by the Ducks, who blew a 2-0 lead in a 5:51 span late in the third period.

NOTE: With his third OT goal of this postseason, Perry matched the National Hockey League record for most overtime goals in a playoff year (Mel Hill in 1939 and Maurice Richard in 1951). The Predators have the opportunity to all but shut down the Anaheim Ducks with a win that would put them up 3-1 in a series.

The Predators held a 5 on 3 advantage for 1:31.

How it happened: In the franchise's first home game in the conference finals, Nashville nearly played second fiddle to Gibson.

On the ice, this pivotal game four is a must-win for the Anaheim Ducks... they have to know that.

Much has been made - and rightfully so - about the contributions the Nashville Predators have gotten throughout the lineup during their current playoff run.

What an epic Western Conference final series! Some of the Sports Channels they have access to include FOX Sports, NBCSN, and many more channels. They played pool and refreshed their bodies and their minds, and they were physically and mentally strong when they needed to be on Thursday. He's scoring big goals, wielding that sneaky dirty stick, and he rejoined Getzlaf in the Edmonton series where he provided an overtime goal and a crucial (almost) goalie-interference play. P.K. Subban scored the Predators' first goal at the 13:33 mark, just seconds after the end of a Nashville power play.

The 2017 NHL Playoffs certainly have been interesting for the Ducks. Roman Josi then snapped the tie and scored the game-winner with 2:43 to play. They are hoping to rebound from their game three loss and head home for game five with the series tied at two.

The Predators are used to trailing in playoff games.

"We thought we were outcompeted last game, so it feels good to take care of business and get a split on the road and now it's best out of three", Ducks center Andrew Cogliano said.

"What we've said is ... if we move him to a different line, he's going to see the opposition's third pairing of defence", said Carlyle, "versus meeting the one or two combination of defencemen". Rickard Rakell took advantage of a bad Nashville line change, ripping a slapper past the blocker side of Rinne for his seventh goal of the playoffs. "I think tonight we pushed back a little bit, and now it's best out of three".

Gibson's shutout bid ended with 6:27 remaining in regulation when Subban's slap shot from the right point snuck past Gibson's glove to cut Nashville's deficit in half.
