It seems like the Anaheim Ducks gave game three of the Western Conference Finals away to the Predators. Then Anaheim defenseman Kevin Bieksa, playing his first game since the opener against Edmonton in the second round, went to the box for high-sticking Forsberg. He has notched one in each game and has broken the franchise record for most consecutive playoff games with a goal. "But I think we just learn from that and I think now that we have a sense of calmness and we have the ability to always regroup, whether we're up or down...."

Ready for playoff hockey? "Obviously, it didn't go the way we wanted, but at the same time, we can take some positives out of this".

Roman Josi of the Nashville Predators celebrates with teammates after scoring a goal against the Anaheim Ducks during Game 3 of the Western Conference finals in Nashville Tuesday.

Ironically, this game comes just 13 days and a year after a triple overtime win for the Predators over the San Jose Sharks.

"For me, the takeaway is you can't lose the first period by four goals and think you're going to win".

Good or bad, the playoffs are a time when reputations take form and are cemented. O'Brien also played 10 games for the AHL's San Diego Gulls and had two assists. "It's a nice feeling for everyone in here, for sure".

Coverage gets going with pregame at 6pm on 102.5 the Game.

Everybody played well, so let's just continue. "But we were united and we have to stay like that, strong together". "But now we have three games and we have to give everything to try and get everything out of all the games".


The Predators had been dominating possession in the period again. The series is now tied 2-2. There have been multiple games where they blew the lead and lost the game.

While the Predators didn't score on any of those advantages, the Ducks were on their heels after each one.

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Predators are favored at home, as they are getting odds of -145 to win, while the Ducks are listed with a money line of +130 to prevail. Rinne got back on track after his first shaky performance of the playoffs in Game 2, stopping 19 of 20 shots in Game 3.

Filip Forsburg somehow lights the lamp from in tight with just:34 seconds to play.

The Hockey Night and Canada panel talked about the comeback in the intermission before overtime.

But in the third period, the Ducks came unglued. Even given the Predators' shoot-from-anywhere mindset, this doesn't bode well for the Ducks. John Gibson continued to play quite well for the Ducks, but faced 40 shots in the game. The Predators are a flawless 6-0 in those six home games.

While the Predators were definitely upset with the loss, their mood post-game didn't show it. You look at that period and that's exactly how we play, and that's when we're at our best and when we're effective. Kyle Turris made it 5-0 late in the second period.
