Friday's result:

Predators 3  Anabeim  2  OT   Nashville leads series 1 game to 0.

The speedy Predators outskated and outhit the Ducks,  even though Anaheim started the physicality.  The Ducks couldn't keep pace as the game wore on.  Anaheim opened the scoring in the first period, but the Predators tied it up in the second on a cross-ice feed from Ryan Johannsen to forward Austin Watson.

The Predators secret weapon in these playoffs has been their backliners.  The defence are like fourth and fifth forwards out there, and have accounted for nearly 32% of the team's scoring.  Tough for any opponent but especially for Anaheim that seemed to struggle in catching up to the Predators.

Nashville had almost a week off prior to the start of this game, while the Ducks only had two days rest.  Difference?  At first glance, no, but as the game wore on, Anaheim seemed to tire.  Or, was it that Nashville simply made them look slow?  That is the more likely answer.

When James Neal's scored in the overtime with the puck taking a funny bounce, for the Predators it was mission accomplished.

Predaties 3  Anaheim  5     Serues yied at 1 game apiece.

The Nashvile Predators took a 2-0 lead in the first period and many thought they were on their way to anoher commanding win as they had done in Game 1.   Not so this time.  The Ducks came back to tie it up by the end of the second pertiod, but Nashville retook the lesd early into the third.   That's when Anaheim turned on the attack in earnest to sail away with the win.  The fifth goal was the empty-net insurance markrr.

On a night when Anaheim goaltender John Gibson was sharper than in his previous outing,  Nashville's Pekka Rinne was having trouble at his side of things.  It was unudual for Rinne to allow as many goals as were scired in that up to now, he sported an incredible .951 sv pct.   Guess great goalies have their bad days.

However, if this victory serves correct, it showed that the Ducks csn get to Rinne.  It may only have been a slightly 'shaky' performance gor the nearly 'invincible' Rinne in these playoffs, or eve sone odf puck bounces or two, which means goaltending (plus fluky bounces) will play a key tole in the rest of series' outcome.

Judging from last night's win, for Anaheim it is a welcome result.

Ducks 1  Predators  2     Nashville leads series 2 games to 1.

The Nashville Predators may want to change their team name to the Crease-Crashers.  At least in the eyes of the Anaheim Ducks, it would lay claim to their opponents tactics.

With not one but two goals being disallowed due to goaltender interference, that would have been enough to dissuade any team from feeling confident enough to continue, especially in a playoff game when the stakes are high.  Not so the Nashville Predators.  After the two no goals decisions, the Predators didn't stop there.  They kept up their offensive juggernaut and tied the game up.

Much to the chagrin of the Ducks.  Perhaps Anaheim should remember that the Predators were a perfect 9-0 at home in these playoffs.  Perhaps that record stood for something.

It turns out that the joke was on the Ducks as Anaheim's Chris Wagner took a rather idiotically ridiculous penalty in his own end, after the action had long shifted two hundred feet away deep at the opposite end of the rink.  Silly penalty in a crucial game such as this one, hey, it's a playoff game, your team's struggling to keep up with your opponents and it's the third period with little time left...blah,blah,blah...   The Predators took quick advantage and pressed for the go-ahead goal which they got, bringing the fans to their feet in sheer jubilation. 

Game over right there.   Make that a perfect 10-0.

They're actually 6-0 at home in the playoffs.  2 wins at home vs Chicago (games 3 and 4), and 3 wins at home vs the Blues (games 3, 4 and 6), and now the first one at home against the Ducks.

Just to be clear to anyone curious this is in no way an accurate description of the game. The Preds tied the game up at 3:54 of the 3rd. The two disallowed goals were at 6:25 and 6:33.

Also, I love the idea that a team pretty blatantly committing goaltender interference twice counts as some sort of heroic obstacle to overcome. Ekholm ran over Gibson and a goal was waved off correctly.

Seriously, are you watching these games or just cribbing other people's work?

A little fact checking goes a long way!

(Seriously, last night was the Preds' 13th game of the playoffs. Considering they play at least 2 road games in every round . . . )

The victory stretches Nashville's postseason win streak at Bridgestone Arena to 10 games, with the Preds yet to lose consecutive contests in these playoffs.

I never "crib" or plagiarize other's works.  I read the article and try to put it in my own words, a very brief summarization or something thereof.

That 100% is plagiarism.

I don't copy other's words verbatim.  If I wish to post something, how then does one go about it without reading anything on the subject matter?

When one researches for a project or essay, does one not need to read various articles from books, magazines, etc.,etc.?  Of course they do.

What do you think people use references for?

You know full well what I'm talking about.  Do me a favour, just back off.

That over multiple playoff seasons. You explicit state "the Predators were a perfect 9-0 at home in these playoffs." That is absolutely untrue. You should probably should stop adding your spin onto facts presented by others without checking to see if it's still accurate.

I know full well the meaning of the word.  You shouldn't worry, I have a large up to date dictionary at home, by the way.

Next time, one shall read no article, no referencing, no tv, no Internet, no nothing for that matter, and make up something out of whole cloth.  Perhaps we should all start doing that.  Shut everything out and create our own world.  That wouldn't be "plagiarizing" anything.  Oh no.  It would merely be inventing a non-existent story or outcome of what we really want to believe.

How about it?  Good for the mind, eh?

Or, and hold still because apparently I'm about to blow your mind, you could go the route of only writing about games you actually watched. That way your writing would be based on first hand information and observances. You could do the actual work of reporting that other people are doing that you're plagiarizing.

I'll give you an example of how that works. See, I watched the game last night. So when you wrote that the two waved off goals came before the tying goal I knew that you were wrong based on what I'd seen myself. Likewise, I could come here to a discussion board and start a discussion based on my own observances. "Ryan Johansen really is developing into an elite #1 centre" is an example of something I could say based not on something someone else had said and I parroted out as if it were my own but rather I would synthesize my own opinion from observation.

Otherwise, what you're writing reads like a book report done by someone who hasn't read the book.
