The Nashville Predators are up 2-1 as they head into game four against the Anaheim Ducks and we've got your way to live stream the action on May 18 at 5pm EST. The home team got off to a bad start (outshot 14-2 in the first period), trailed by two well into the third period but managed to get it to overtime with two goals in the final six and half minutes of regulation, the second by Filip Forsberg with 34.5 seconds to go and the Nashville net empty. "We've had situations in the playoffs where we've had to deal with that", said Thompson, who was in front of the net to screen Rinne and was initially credited with the victor before it was confirmed that Perry's shot had gone off Subban.

It became that when Corey Perry intercepted a clearing attempt by Nashville defenseman P.K. Subban and put the puck toward the net, hoping for a deflection or redirection.

Before the puck dropped, the three-time Grammy victor hit the ice wearing a No. 82 Preds jersey to deliver a soaring version of "The Star-Spangled Banner".

Game 5 is in Anaheim on Saturday. Anaheim, which leads the postseason with 3.07 goals per game, has 11 goals in four games against Nashville. Just 29 seconds later, defenseman Josh Manson slashed James Neal. With all due respect to Viktor Arvidsson (who has been solid in his own right), Forsberg and Johansen took their games to another level last game. She scored a #1 hit in 2010 with "Don't You Wanna Stay" with Jason Aldean. Pittsburgh has scored a goal in each game in the series, dropping the opener 2-1 in overtime and winning the second 1-0.

A big question on everyone's mind is who will be singing the national anthem Thursday night. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman also was on hand with a franchise-record 17,423 fans on hand.

"The one thing we wanted to make sure we established was a strong start, and we did that, with an exclamation mark", Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said after the game. It was the seventh goal this postseason for Rakell, who led the Ducks with 33 goals during the regular season.

The Predators had fought their way back and forced overtime after trailing 2-0 thanks to goals from Subban and Filip Forsberg. In the first period they gave the Preadaotrs two shots on goal andd gave away the puck away only twice.

The Ducks controlled the game's pacing early on, outshooting Nashville 14-2 in the first period and were aggressive from the outset.

Perry's goal with just under 10 minutes to play in overtime gave the Ducks a 3-2 win and tied the Western Conference finals at two games apiece.

Sullivan doesn't plan on naming a starter until after his team's skate on Friday morning. "These guys have both helped us win games".

Once the Ducks return home to the Honda Center, that's when I'll count on them to turn on the jets. In all five, though, at least one of the teams had back-to-back wins to get that point.

Mike Hoffman and his Ottawa Senators teammates heard all the chatter on social media about their style of play, which some perceived as "boring". The Ducks have bounced back throughout the 2017 NHL Playoffs, therefore this isn't new to them.
