NHL: Nashville led the series with "Anaheim" in the Stanley Cup finals

Miller: Ondrej Kase's motor powers Ducks in comeback win

Finally breaking the scoreless tie, Anaheim's Corey Perry found the back of the Predators' net on a power play at the 15:35 mark of the second period, assisted by Rickard Rakell and Sami Vanaten. Fans are waiting to see if the drama between the Predators' Ryan Johansen and the Ducks' Ryan Kesler will continue after some seriously brutal action in game two by the teams' centers.

The Predators and Ducks are tied up at 1-1 in their best of seven series.

The Predators took another lead when Forsberg converted a rebound of a breakaway by speedy Viktor Arvidsson, who had two assists. Nashville scored four goals on its first 10 power plays on the road this postseason but now are 0 of 8 on the man advantage against Anaheim, including failing to convert through 88 seconds of a 5-on-3 in the opener. The result? The pace quickened, the entries eased, Kase scored his first goal since February 22 and Ritchie netted the game-winning goal.

- Interesting analysis of Pekka Rinne's game last night... the Ducks were testing his blocker constantly. Two of his three goals in the playoffs have been game-winners.

Ducks coach Randy Carlyle paid tribute to Gibson's shot-stopping work in goal.

Anaheim erased an early two-goal deficit to avoid falling into a 2-0 series hole Sunday night, following a pattern that saw it storm back from three goals down against Calgary and Edmonton in the first two rounds of the playoffs. “Hes a terrific player, and I think hes just worked on fitting inside of the concept of how we want to play as a team.”.

Ryan Kesler likes to get under the skin of the opposition, that's no secret.

"I just lost sight of it for a second", said Gibson, who says little when he plays well, and even less the rest of the time. I'm not going to say they didn't. Through the first two games, Predators center Ryan Johansen has four points, including two in the first ten minutes of Game 2.

Game 4 in the series takes place in Nashville on Thursday. We were watching the Preds game actually after Jason's show...

It was something else Tuesday night. "It gives us the extra boost and the extra energy we needed".

"We're looking for that next play instead of putting pucks at the net", Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan said.

Two wins from the first NHL Stanley Cup Final in Nashville history, the Predators have all the makings of a team of destiny. They won't be able to shut it down completely, but it's a necessity to match Anaheim's push with one of their own.

"There's a lot of things to like but it's just one game", Boucher said. "They played hard at our net, bumping our goalie all night long, and we didn't do a good enough job getting inside".

Eastern Conference finals: Penguins at Senators - Ottawa have effectively deployed their methodical trap system in all but one period so far in the series, however Phil Kessel exploited that lapse and it is now a best-of-five affair. It's Nashville's answer to the octopus Detroit fans traditionally throw on the ice for good luck.

Kesler leaned against a wall in the hallway outside the Anaheim dressing room and said he laughed when he heard Johansen's comments.

"We're a confident team", Josi said. "Whether it's overtime or third period or we're leading or we're trailing". And they were just getting started.
