Oilers dominate Ducks to force Game 7

Oilers dominate Ducks to force Game 7

Obviously, it's a great feeling. They've scored just four goals during that stretch after finding the net six times in the first two contests.

"If we were a little bit better in an area here or there, then that series could have taken a different turn and who knows what we're saying", Yeo said.

Notes: The Predators' only playoff series clinched outside of Nashville came in Game 7 in Anaheim to clinch their first-round series past year. I think nobody (is) happy with the result and we have time to think about it. It is simply the Stanley Cup Final. A player who might be nearing the end of his career who has never touched the Cup and has never been closer. Not another player is more loved than Pekke.

The Blues should be used to it; as playoff contender regulars and down 3-1 already before a win in Game 5 this week, St. Louis might be steeled enough to force a decisive seventh game. The reality is that number is even higher.

Ryan Johansen didn't have a shot on goal in the previous two games. Pekka Rinne was strong at home once again, making 32 saves in the victory.

"We believe that we have a group that obviously we can build with and we can build internally with our young players and we can build internally with the competition of those young players", Yeo said.

But as the season progressed and Montreal began to falter and Nashville started to play better in the NHL's most challenging division, the narrative began to swing. But his impact is very tangible.

- Peter Laviolette made some personal history yesterday, he became the first United States born head coach to take three different teams to a conference final. "Well, he's been excellent all year, but down the stretch he's been terrific in the postseason".

- The Eastern Conference continues to outscore the Western but the gap has fallen from 0.84 goals per game in Round 1 to 0.4 so far in Round 2.

But there's no question that the man who is the rock, the wall, the backstop, the heart and soul of this run, is Pekke Rinne.

Even when the other team does manage to weave their way through this gauntlet of gold, they are generally slowed so much that any rush chances are nixed due to a lack of speed upon zone entry. The clichés for that situation consistently ring true: you have to take it one game at a time.

"He's been a horse for us", said Johansen's linemate Viktor Arvidsson. He started on a line with LW Dmitrij Jaskin and C Patrik Berglund. So it's nearly like taking a hit.

"I didn't know what it was going to look like, and it was hard, it was hard", Armstrong said.

His defensemen like it as well. "That's what we asked our guys before the game, whatever happens good, bad, you have to make sure you're ready to come back and you're ready to perform". While his performances in St. Louis weren't great, I think these back-to-back showings at home should give him the momentum he needs to shut down the Blues tonight. Laviolette's first Predators team led the National Hockey League in points for much of the season, but faded down the stretch and was badly outmatched in that series in the face off circle and in speed and puck handling compared to offensive stars like Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. "But you're out here to win". "When you're getting traded, you don't have control of where you go".
