Anaheim Ducks Rally Back In Three Minutes For Amazing Comeback

Ducks defenceman Cam Fowler applauded the Oilers grit, going with five defencemen for most of the long night, especially Larsson. Arvidsson hasn't scored a goal this series after tying Johansen for the points lead during the regular season (61) while tying Forsberg for the team high with 31 goals. They led 5-0 after 20 minutes and Draisaitl was a beast.

Nashville's Ryan Johansen (92), who scored the game-winner, celebrates with his teammates clinching their series. Draisaitl has made it a fair fight. "Everyone knows how good he is in here". Their entry in the playoffs was as third or fourth-line players and they got to pick their playoff experience up.

Who knew he was capable of a five-point outing?

The fact remains, however, Letestu is second on the team in playoff scoring behind - you guessed it - Draisaitl.

Like a good leader who's part father, part big brother, McDavid also gave Leon Draisaitl a tap on the arm to get the heck into the dressing room when Draisaitl wore the look of an anguished man as he leaned on the boards watching the Ducks celebrating Corey Perry's double-overtime victor.

"Even for us to come out in the second period and get that sixth goal, that was big", Letestu said. He beats them up for fun. The Senators tied the score late in Game 5 and defeated the Rangers 5-4 in overtime when Kyle Turris fired a wrist shot past Henrik Lundqvist. "Just don't care. I think we've played hard this series".

"Obviously you can't have a start like we did where three of the first six shots went into the net", Carlyle said. Andrej Sekera was injured in game 5 and did not return. They did it with the end of their season looming large.

No kidding. Vermette, who came to the Ducks this season, won 21 of 28 face-offs in Game 5 and at one time was 14-1. "We're going into a building where we've had success before, we're comfortable playing there".

The first play was in Game 4. The Caps have been the better team through most of this series, but still trail 3-2. There was no panic in the room.

"It could be good or it could be great", Eller said of Ovechkin's move. But it won't be lost to nervousness or inexperience or lack of preparation. It won't be because they're scared of the big stage.

"There were a lot of doubters after we lost the first two games at home, but here we are in Game 7".

In 2016, it was Nashville in the first round; in 2015, Chicago in the third round; in 2014, Los Angeles in the second round. They're sick and exhausted of talking about the fact they've lost four straight since 2013.

Though he usually plays with Connor McDavid on the top line, Draisaitl took on his one role on the second line as a centre. "They can't do this to us". While longtime linemate Corey Perry struggled for most of this season, Getzlaf has been among the game's best players since the All-Star break - even if he doesn't get a wealth of National Hockey League attention playing out on the West Coast.

"We willed it through", Getzlaf said. "We have to make sure we do that on Wednesday".

"Shows we're a team", said coach Todd McLellan. Coach Mike Yeo has hinted at changing up his power-play combinations after being pleased with his Blues' effort despite losing Game 4. "Unfortunately, we picked a bad time to do it".

Pittsburgh still leads the series 3-2 going home for Game 6 Monday, so the pressure remains on Presidents' Trophy-winning Washington, but finally cracking Fleury could make all the difference.

A fifth trip through that Groundhog Day scenario looms Wednesday due to their miserable performance in a 7-1 loss at Edmonton on Sunday.

Each game is its own individual entity and the Ducks want that to remain true. The Ducks and Oilers have taken turns cutting each other off at the knees.

For the Predators, it's uncharted territory as they await the victor of last night's other game, and either one is going to be a heck of a challenge.
