Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf fined for apparent homophobic slur

"Nashville" for 45 seconds before the end of the second period managed to restore parity - the "Predators", the efforts of Colin Wilson implemented the most.

The Ducks held a 1-0 lead in the second period, but the Predators scored three unanswered goals to close out the game. So that gives us a lot of confidence in his abilities.

Jonathan Bernier took over and stopped 16 shots in his first appearance in almost two weeks for the Ducks, who already were without 30-goal scorers Rickard Rakell and Patrick Eaves before losing Gibson to a lower-body injury.

While the Predators were waiting for their offense to find ways to break through, goalie Pekka Rinne continued to be fantastic in these playoffs. He skated slowly to the bench and grimaced in pain after a check from Ducks defenseman Josh Manson, but it's still unclear whether the injury was caused by that innocuous hit.

Ryan Johansen left game 4 and required emergency hip surgery which will cost him and the Preds the remainder of the playoffs.

The Good Solid penalty killing (going 4-4) and overall just outstanding team play... the Predators imposed their will on an Anaheim team that came out strong.

"I like our first pass, I didn't like our second pass", Carlyle said.

"Obviously we know what's at stake", said Wilson.

Home ice advantage hasn't mattered much in this series, so there's reason to consider the Ducks to force this thing to a game seven.

"It's just the way that we were built", Forsberg said. "If we win, we're in the (Cup Final)".

Rinne entered Saturday's contest with a 1.66 goals-against average in 14 playoff games.

Regardless, Carlyle is confident his team can bring the series back to Anaheim for Game 7 Wednesday night, and why not?

The Ducks also were hurting without Rakell, a surprise omission due to a lower-body injury, and Eaves, who missed his ninth straight game. There was hope that Eaves might be on the radar in terms of potential availability when the coach said after Game 5 that he has moved to day-to-day status but that has dimmed.

The Ducks also seem to alternate between a team that looks drained to a team that will run through any adversity. "We're capable of winning tomorrow". The schedule doesn't allow such a break with both the Predators and Ducks back on planes Sunday for the return trip to Tennessee.
