Stanley Cup playoffs: Josi's late goal gives Predators 2-1 series lead

Although Honda Center was much fuller and louder than it was for the traffic-affected series opener, Johansen scored on a breakaway just 4:18 in.

Nashville is probably offering some value at the current adjusted series price of -135, especially with three of the next potential five games in this series being in Nashville where the Predators have yet to lose in the playoffs.

Clearly, knocking Johansen off his game is important for Anaheim to advance.

Well, that's up for debate.

The Predators opened Game 2 on Sunday night the same way, scoring the first two goals of the game from Ryan Johansen and Neal.

Nick Ritchie scored the eventual winning goal as the Anaheim Ducks defeated the Nashville Predators 5-3 Sunday to even their Western Conference finals series at 1-1.

"It's huge. I don't care".

Two of the game's best playmaking centres face-off in the Western Conference final and they'll be the focal point for both teams' attack.

Nashville dominated the tired Ducks, and Forsberg forced a turnover on a forecheck before tipping Matt Irwin's shot through Gibson for his fourth goal.

Anaheim goalie John Gibson stopped 30 shots. "Actually, (Getzlaf) made a little tip pass in the middle that kind of messed their D up a little bit, and I shot the pick to the net and it went in".

"Moving him up and down in our lineup gives us some flexibility", Carlyle said. But for the first 20 minutes, it was as if the Ducks' skates were stuck in quicksand.

The Ducks stormed back after Ryan Johansen registered a goal and an assist to help the Predators take a 2-0 lead 8 ½ minutes into the opening period.

"I think they believed that they were playing a decent game, and if we just stayed with it that we would eventually get one to drop and then see where it goes from there".

Once again, the Ducks had dug themselves a hole. In their Game 2 triumph, Vatanen scored while Cam Fowler had two assists and Shea Theodore, Josh Manson and Brandon Montour each had one. The inevitable power play goal followed, giving the Ducks life heading to the room after one, an early second period goal tied it up. "I don't know what's going through his head over there".

While Young may be busy on the road for the They Don't Know Tour with Jason Aldean as well as promoting his brand new single, "Losing Sleep", but he still squeezes in enough time to bring his "fang fingers" out on display to watch the boys in gold and navy move on to the next playoff round. "Obviously, we did a good job of bouncing back after last game's performance".

"He's not my friend, he's not going to be my friend", Kesler said. He entered Game 2 of the Western Conference Final with a 0.950 save percentage, a 1.41 goals against average and nine wins (not to mention three assists) - all tops in the National Hockey League.

Minus the intermission, it was two goals in a span of 99 seconds for the Ducks. I saw him on his back five, six times and he stood in and made the saves he's supposed to, and some that he shouldn't.

Filip Forsberg and Austin Watson scored in regulation for the Predators, who improved to 9-2 in this National Hockey League postseason.

"The penalty at the end of the first changed the game, changed the momentum", Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said.
