Ducks' reward for Game 7 win is date with Rinne and Preds

From a personal standpoint, I was rooting for Edmonton to beat Anaheim in their Western Conference semifinal series because the Oilers play such an entertaining style of hockey.

Game 1 is Friday night in Anaheim. Nashville has won nine consecutive at home in the postseason, dating back to a 3-1 win over the Ducks in Game Six of their 2016 First Round series.

"When you remove that and look at the big picture, our entry into the playoffs was about as good as you could ask with the type of teams that we played, with the series that we played and the ups and the downs, we basically got a college degree within a month when it comes to playoffs". "So just take advantage of it. Know what's at stake". Finish off a playoff series when you get the chance, or you will nearly certainly regret not doing so.

Nick Ritchie is a National Hockey League playoff newcomer.

This is a chance for payback for the Ducks are they lost to Nashville in seven games in the first round of the 2016 Stanley Cup playoffs.

In the rematch, the Ducks hope to show the Predators what they learned last spring.

"We were down 1-0 for a little bit, and we didn't panic". We came in to win. "It's going to be a tough road, but we're up to it".

Like I said, it wasn't just Getzlaf producing in this series. The 18 completed seasons before the Predators' first conference finals appearance - they debuted in 1998-99 - rank as the third-most before a franchise's first visit to that round.

Ducks coach Randy Carlyle didn't blame Gibson and said it's about the entire team being better.

"I looked around the room when we were done and had a minute or two together and the amount of bumps, bruises scrapes and ice bags and just that scrawny looking players is a good sign for us". However, after notching the game-winner against the Oilers in Game 7, Ritchie is probably on everyone's radar now.




"I wouldn't say it's a relief, but the fact we don't have to talk about it anymore, that's a good thing", captain Ryan Getzlaf said.

The Predators have advanced largely on the strength of their stellar corps of defensemen in front of Rinne. The previous two times the Penguins eliminated the Capitals, they went on to win the Stanley Cup. It's Predators vs. Ducks... round three, with a berth in the Stanley Cup Final on the line.

Eaves, 33, has been a valuable addition to Anaheim's top six. In Round Two, the Ducks dropped both games at Honda Center to open their series with the Edmonton Oilers. At least Anaheim didn't have to travel, but the Predators have been resting since their clincher over St. Louis last Sunday.

The Dallas Stars' 2017 draft fortunes got even sweeter late Wednesday night.

The Ducks hadn't led at home in regulation since Mark Letestu tied up Game 1 at 1-1 by scoring 6:22 into the first, but Ritchie changed that early in the third by firing a wrist shot under Cam Talbot's right arm. Edmonton's first playoff run since 2006 ended with four losses in five games, but the Oilers' young talent seems certain to make them a major factor in the West for years.

Staying within striking distance gave Anaheim the confidence to respond. "But I think there are a lot of positives we can take from this year".

While Rinne appears to be at the peak of his skills again, his counterpart still has something to prove. Perry may have only picked up one goal in this series, but it was a huge one - the game victor in Game 5's emotional overtime thriller.

Kesler and linemates Jakob Silfverberg and Andrew Cogliano did a stellar defensive job against Connor McDavid in the second round.

Rinne made 22 saves and Ryan Johansen, James Neal and Filip Forsberg scored for the Predators. Underwood is the wife of Predators center Mike Fisher.
