Perry pots victor, Ducks level National Hockey League playoff series 2-2

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.

What's next: With the series now deadlocked, these teams will return to Honda Center in Anaheim for Game 5 on Saturday.

The Ducks win tied the series at two games apiece. If he can keep it that way tonight, it'll be an outstanding performance for Anderson, who has never seen a conference finals before this year.

The Predators lead the Anaheim Ducks 2-1 in the Western Conference finals.

Playing the Nashville Predators inside the NHL's toughest arena in almost 20 years sure isn't helping. After blowing a 2-0 lead, everyone was expecting the Predators to finish the comeback with a win.

Nashville had two potential goals waved off in a span of eight seconds during the third period because of goaltender interference. A schedule that had Anaheim starting this series less than 48 hours after ousting Edmonton in a deciding seventh game doesn't help either. The Predators couldn't get the puck past Gibson.

Then there's the challenge of playing in Nashville where the Predators just notched their 10th straight playoff win dating to last season. The Predators are the first National Hockey League team to win 10 straight playoff games at home since Detroit in 1997-98.

The home team has now won five of the last six meetings between these two teams.

The Nashville Predators head into a game 4 that could very well be the biggest game in franchise history-topping game 3 from Tuesday night.

In the end they couldn't.

It was apparent the Ducks came to play Game 4 nearly before country star Kelly Clarkson finished the National Anthem. "I can't say enough about the way we came in here after that third period". "We had an opportunity in overtime and just an unlucky bounce so turn the page and get ready for next game".

Manson had his glove pressed down on the back of Fisher's helmet as he went airborne and his momentum carried him forward. "I mean, he seems to be the guy who's always finding a way to get it done in those crucial points in games". "The fans are unbelievable". In the team's previous 18 playoff road games, the Ducks were 13-5 per the OddsShark NHL Database.

Dennis Morgan, who had sung the pregame anthems at Bridgestone for 17 years, voiced his displeasure over the fact the Predators have been using Nashville stars in his stead. Rakell scored his seventh goal of the postseason at the 11:30 mark in the first, taking advantage of a line change to slap a wide-open shot past Pekka Rinne. "They were quicker. They were first everywhere, more physical and that usually dictates the play". It took until December for the team to fully embrace it, but that's when everyone knew where they needed to be on the ice and what their responsibility was. And it's effective and it's hard to play against. It was a good sign for a team that had repeatedly expressed the need for better starts in the series.

This was a follow-up to the original skinned-duck troll job that took place in Game 3, executed by a local high school teacher. It's all part of the style coach Peter Laviolette has instilled. He might not have thought that in his first Game 7, but when you repeatedly do things over time, you develop that reputation.
