Ducks top goal-scorer Rickard Rakell misses Gm 5 with injury

And Nashville, even with a big-name defenseman sidelined in Johansen, has pulled within striking distance of a historic trip to the Stanley Cup Final, in large part due to the top-line blue-line play that drove the Preds past the Chicago Blackhawks and St. Louis Blues.

"We just we went through several ponchos we bought, [so it's] an excuse to buy new Predators stuff and you know rain just wasn't going to stop us tonight we knew we were going to win it here in Smashville, take it to the cup", Gail Harris said. Game 6 goes Monday night in Nashville.

Eaves has been out since April 30 because of a lower-body injury but Carlyle on Saturday upgraded his status to day to day, and Rakell also has a lower-body injury after he was hobbled in Game 4.

"On Thursday, May 25, Ryan Johansen was treated for an acute compartment syndrome of the left thigh".

"They're never out of the game, out of a series, so yeah, got to make sure we're prepared", Josi said.

The Ducks also seem to alternate between a team that looks drained to a team that will run through any adversity. Johansen reacted angrily to Kesler's defensive persistence after Game 2, complaining about the Selke Trophy candidate's physical play.

Less than seven minutes later, left winger Colin Wilson quieted them back down with a power play goal.

When Gibson failed to return for the second period, Bernier was abruptly sent into the fourth playoff game of his National Hockey League career, and he immediately made a handful of strong stops. They won game four in overtime in Nashville.

ANAHEIM Jonathan Bernier got the word midway through the first intermission of Game 5 of the Western Conference finals Saturday at Honda Center.

The NHL announced the fine several hours before Game 5 of the series in Anaheim.

"It's just the way that we were built", Forsberg said. "Obviously Joey, certainly (is) leading our team in points there and doing a great job, but there's a lot of offensive talent up front, and we're confident in ourselves". He was actually taking into concussion protocol after the goal was scored. He ranks third on the Ducks in goals (seven) and points (13) in the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Bernier was 21-7-4 with a 2.50 goals-against average in 39 games in 2016-17. Jakob Silfverberg snapped his stick when trying to pass out to the point, he managed to kick the puck to Corey Perry below the goal line and Perry went from game four hero to game five goat on a awful giveaway, passing it directly to Austin Watson, who promptly sent it 170+ feet into the empty net... "They came out and worked harder than us in the second and third period, and that made the difference in the hockey game".
