Perry pots victor, Ducks level National Hockey League playoff series 2-2

Predators fans who couldn’t manage tickets filled Bridgestone’s neighboring Walk of Fame Park for a Game Three watch party

And so a postseason journey that has been totally lacking in momentum or logic for the Ducks lurched back to home to Anaheim, for Game 5 on Saturday. Corey Perry scored on a power play in the second period with just five minutes to play. Perry fired a shot that banked in off Nashville defenseman P.K. Subban's stick and past goaltender Pekka Rinne.

Playing with an empty net, Filip Forsberg forced a dribbler past Gibson in front of a crowded net with under 35 seconds remaining to tie it up.

But midway through, it was Nick Ritchie who gave the Ducks a 2-0 lead on a perfectly placed wrist shot from just above the face-off circle.

Subban sparked Nashville's rally 14 minutes into the third period before Forsberg levelled proceedings, but the Ducks had the final say on away ice. A schedule that had Anaheim starting this series less than 48 hours after ousting Edmonton in a deciding seventh game doesn't help either.

"I liked the way we played in the first round better than in round two", Predators head coach Peter Laviolette said. The loss snapped a 10-game home winning streak in the playoffs for Nashville. "You don't want to get down at any point, but to get down 4-0 is digging a pretty big hole".

"If we played a run-and-gun game that maybe some people would rather watch, we probably wouldn't be here", Hoffman said after routing the defending Stanley Cup champs.

"I thought we had some energy and played on our toes", said Carlyle.

Thompson scored a game-winning goal off a deflection in overtime, giving the Ducks a 3-2 win over the Predators in Game 4 of the Western Conference Final.

Ford gets ready to cut jobs
Ford said last August it planned to double its Palo Alto staff, which would mean hiring more than 100 researchers and engineers. The auto maker also has around 25,000 employees in Asia, but there are no figures on how many of these are salaried.

It also has been something new for the 2017 National Hockey League playoffs. You saw last game the Ducks came out very physical and guys like Harry Zolnierczyk got tossed around and banged up.

Nashville Predators skate onto the ice after defeating the Anaheim Ducks in Game 3 of the Western Conference final in the NHL hockey Stanley Cup playoffs Tuesday, May 16, 2017, in Nashville, Tenn.

It was apparent the Ducks came to play Game 4 nearly before country star Kelly Clarkson finished the National Anthem.

Appropriately, Carrie Underwood - whose husband Mike Fisher plays for the Preds - was the first.

"It's got a lot of sass - like I might beat you up with my sound", Clarkson said according to Variety, and called the album "urban, pop, soulful R&B".

"They're a good team so we know every game is going to be a battle".

That lead eventually gave way to Nashville's attack as the Ducks lost the game 2-1 in regulation. Their shorthanded unit has only allowed one goal in 17 opportunities through four games. It's tough. They're a good team.
