Stanley Cup playoffs: Aberg's goal carries Predators past Ducks in Game 5


The Ducks, who were without Rickard Rakell (lower-body) for Game 5, have also played short-handed during the playoffs.

Nashville Predators players celebrate a goal by Austin Watson against the Anaheim Ducks during the third period of Game 5 in the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Western Conference finals in Anaheim, Calif., Saturday, May 20, 2017.

The Predators can close out the series Monday night at Bridgestone Arena when they host Game 6 of the Western Conference Final. Anaheim also played its ninth consecutive game without Eaves, who scored a combined 32 goals this season for Dallas and the Ducks. Gibson's status for Game 6 remains unclear.

It was at Bridgestone where Anaheim played its best game of the series in Game 4, outshooting Nashville 14-2 in the first period and 36-33 for the game.

The league didn't specify what Getzlaf said and to whom. "Anytime he has the puck, he's a threat against us", said Silfverberg, adding that Johansen had been a big reason why Filip Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson had been having such a strong year.

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. "But I don't think any team relies on just one guy, so we're going to have to play our best game tonight". So that gives us a lot of confidence in his abilities. The 2007 Stanley Cup champion is the second-leading scorer in the current playoffs, trailing only Pittsburgh's Evgeni Malkin.

Colin Wilson scored a power-play goal with:41 seconds left in the second-period for the Predators.


Johansen sustained a season-ending thigh injury in Game 4 that required surgery with an expected recovery time of two to three months.

"Right when we walked off, yeah, you could hear people", said Predators defenceman Roman Josi. It came off the stick of Chris Wagner.

The Ducks have shown a style about them in these NHL Playoffs 2017 and they have in this series as well.

"We're capable of winning".

The veteran centre will publicly address the fine after Game 5, the Ducks say. The duo combined for 65 regular-season goals. Johansen skated slowly to the bench and grimaced in pain after a late-game check from Ducks defenseman Josh Manson, but it's still unclear whether the injury was caused by that innocuous hit. I don't think you can sit back and just hope that you make it to another game.

"Well, it seems that when the pressure's been applied, we've responded in the proper manner, and I would expect the same", Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said.
