  • Nashville Predators center Ryan Johansen scores past Anaheim Ducks goalie John Gibson during the first period of Game 2 of the Western Conference final in the NHL hockey Stanley Cup playoffs Sunday

Antoine Vermette #50 of the Anaheim Ducks celebrates his empty net goal with teammates Ryan Kesler #17 and Josh Manson #42 in the third period of Sunday's Game 2.

Some are dressed in stripes.

The NHL playoff game between the Anaheim Ducks and Nashville Predators will be broadcast on the NBCSN and Sportsnet and CBC in Canada.

They werent necessarily the wrong calls. Nashville saw two goals wiped off the board for interference.

The power play has also been affected by his absence and has notched a 0-for-10 mark in the Penguins' last three games.

There is a lot of support for the Predators in Nashville as the team takes on the Anaheim Ducks in the Western Conference Finals. His family and friends watching him play, I don't know how you can cheer for a guy like that. "We're just going in there and going to try to take care of business". And the wait was definitely worth it. I havent been in a building with that much energy in my life.”.

After the game Johansen accused Ducks forward Ryan Kesler of being dirty player.

Nashville captured Game 1 with a 3-2 overtime victory on James Neal's goal.

Anaheim center Ryan Kessler has the unenviable job of shutting down the opposing team's top line.

Of course, it wasnt just Johansen that Nashville had to worry about. The Predators are 5-2 in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest, 19-7 in their last 26 home games and 9-3 in their last 12 overall.

On the ensuing power play, Corey Perry delivered the knockout blow that McLeod couldnt. "Now we're heading home and have another opportunity at home", Nashville netminder Pekka Rinne said following a shaky performance in Game 2. Forsberg's goal snapped Gibson's streak of 51 saves in a row dating back to Game 2 of the series.

The Predators didn't hold back on star power for the biggest game in franchise history.

Another time, Anaheims Brandon Montour fanned on a shot that snuck underneath Rinnes pads.

Josi, Ryan Ellis and Filip Forsberg combined for 20 shots on goal, matching the total of the entire Ducks roster.

Cycling in the zone, Mattias Ekholm bombed a shot from the point that got knocked to the side where Roman Josi sized it up and ripped a wrister past Gibson.

Carlyle admitted that as a whole on the night, the Predators did outshoot, but did not believe as it was dominant at the shot clock said it was.

“Gibson played great, ” said Forsberg, who scored his sixth of the playoffs. That was the key.”.

"Nashville" has never lost on home arena in the playoffs in 2017. And I think we've been doing that.

Its the trade that keeps on giving.

Nashville is still an untraditional hockey market, but the Predators are establishing a tradition of winning here. "We're in a conference final here". However, Nashville was able to break through in Game 3, scoring both of its goals in the final frame.
