Ducks even Western finals at 2, beating Predators 3-2 in OT

Nashville had two potential goals waved off in a span of eight seconds during the third period because of goaltender interference. Forsberg's tying goal would come a little less than six minutes later. They are 4-1 with the lone loss in this series opener to Nashville.

"I've said all along, we have two great goalies", Sullivan said Thursday. "So we use our assets and that's what works". With the win, the Predators went up 2-1 in the best-of-seven series. The Predators couldn't get the puck past Gibson.

Anderson finished with 25 saves.

The Ducks carried some good momentum into Game 3 after scoring four goals on Pekka Rinne in a 5-3 come-from-behind victory in Game 2 at home.

Game 4 is Friday night in Ottawa. It's all part of the style coach Peter Laviolette has instilled. If you're inclined to pooh-pooh the idea of Nashville as a potential hockey town, ask yourself what you're really hoping to prove-and what would be so bad about non-traditional markets becoming traditional ones? "We're workers here. We don't decide which system is put in place. Obviously, it didn't go the way we wanted, but at the same time, we can take some positives out of this".

"That's what we're here to do".

PENGUINS: Mike Sullivan isn't in any hurry to announce who will start in goal for the Pittsburgh Penguins in Friday's critical Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals against Ottawa.

"It's got a lot of sass - like I might beat you up with my sound", Clarkson said according to Variety, and called the album "urban, pop, soulful R&B".

They got goals from Rickard Rakell and Nick Ritchie. Bobby Ryan eventually gained possession down low and found Methot with a crafty pass. It's going to the net and bouncing off people.

Notes: Perry tied Teemu Selanne (35) for the second-most playoff goals in franchise history. "It was something that we needed and we responded fairly well". Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle might have doubted the validity of the shot count in Game 3, but he and his players knew the ice was tilted in the Predators' favor. But while the Maple Leafs could not be happier with Andersen, who led the team to the post-season in his first year, Gibson has also proven that he was ready for a promotion.

Apparent miscommunication between the 39-year-old Streit and Cole led to Cole throwing the puck away shortly before Brassard's goal.

With two late goals allowed and two brutal penalties, this looked like a full-on collapse for the Ducks. Not a good first period.

The head of the Pyeongchang Olympics organizing committee said Thursday that the NHL isn't being "greedy" preventing hockey stars going to the 2018 Games and he was willing to be flexible to meet its demands.
