NHL Predictions: Will the Predators win Game 3 vs

Edmonton Oilers goaltender Cam Talbot is interviewed during a final media conference of the season at Rogers Place in Edmonton Alta. on Friday

ABOUT THE DUCKS: Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle made a calculated gamble in Game 2 when, with his team trailing by two goals, he shuffled his lines and replaced Corey Perry with rookie Ondrej Kase on the No. 1 unit with captain Ryan Getzlaf and Nick Ritchie. There are five games left in this series, but to date Johansen has had the last laugh.

But the Ducks fought back, scoring two goals just 99 seconds apart to tie it 2-2. Anaheim's power play was scoreless in 21 straight attempts dating to Game 2 of the second round against Edmonton but Vatanen beat Rinne cleanly with a slap shot for his first goal of the postseason.

The Predators took another lead when Forsberg converted a rebound of a breakaway by speedy Viktor Arvidsson, who had two assists. This was his first full season for the Ducks, and his first as the majority stater.

The catfish later made another appearance when the guys held the fish in the air, chugged tall boy cans of Bud Light and took off their shirts when they were shown on the videoboard. The rest of the consistently surprising Senators, too.

With the series shifting to their place, will the Nashville Predators get back in the lead in the Western Conference Finals as they face the Anaheim Ducks in Game 3 tonight at 8PM ET?

"I thought they came out and grabbed some momentum right at the end of the first period and they came out and scored another quick goal and I think the momentum shifted a little bit", Laviolette said.

Kesler can hurt you just as much on the scoreboard as he can with his stick. "That's all I'm trying to do".

That is such a heavy quote, mostly for two reasons - it propels this series into a war of words while also giving Kesler some level of justification for what he does on the ice.

"There are a lot of things to like, but it's just one game", Boucher said. "We got a well rounded group". If anything, he's embraced it.

Therefore the Ducks will have trouble advancing past the Predators to the 2017 Stanley Cup Finals. Now Ottawa finds itself on equal footing and hardly appeared intimidated by the stage. Pekka Rinne recorded 22 saves. As the physical play between the two exponentially increased in the second and third periods, it pushed Johansen over the edge. The problem wasn't Ottawa's neutral zone trap created to slow teams down but a decided lack of aggression once Malkin, captain Sidney Crosby and company crossed the Senators' blue line. "They played hard at our net, bumping our goalie all night long, and we didn't do a good enough job getting inside".

They have limited the Pittsburgh Penguins to two goals.

"Gibby gave us a chance".

The Penguins only had 72 hours to recharge following a draining seven-game series against Washington.

Notes: Perry tied Teemu Selanne (35) for the second-most playoff goals in franchise history.

Here in Smashville, one of those Gary Bettman landing spots where we questioned how the Predators would steal enough fans from NASCAR and college football, that mix has come together perfectly this spring. Gibson was impenetrable in Russian Federation that year, giving up just two goals total in the medal round while facing shooters such as Mark Scheifele, Nathan MacKinnon, Jonathan Drouin, Tomas Hertl and, ironically, future Nashville standouts Filip Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson.

"We're in a conference final here", Anaheim center Ryan Getzlaf said. "He goes into the (tough) areas and can make plays with good players".
