Ducks eager for rematch with Rinne's Predators in West final

Jan Ortega | 14 May, 2017, 04:08

"But you have to give credit to our team. We're glad that the goals came in the second round". Rest won't come, of course, because the grind of the Stanley Cup Playoffs is indifferent to the tired. The future is exciting for this team. Outside of those two, he never has more than four goals in any other postseason.

In both, they had challenges for goaltender interference denied.

The Oilers pulled Talbot with 2:06 to go and couldn't muster the tying goal.

The Oilers season may have come to a close, but this team went above and beyond and definitely built themselves a reputation. The 34-year-old Finland native overcame an uneven regular season by allowing 14 goals in 10 playoff games, including a pair of shutouts in the sweep of top-seeded Chicago.

Thrilled to have escaped elimination, they were very loose after their morning skate Wednesday. He was accosted by fans several times as he walked through the airport on Tuesday on his way to the team's flight to Southern California. Nobody knows exactly what the Oilers are capable of so, as these playoffs wore on, it began to seem more and more possible that they might reach - if not win - the Stanley Cup right now. "I wanted to run for the plane as fast as I could".

Wayne Gretzky had three points in the Oilers three games against Philadelphia in their best-of-five in 1980, his first kick at the playoff can. Some stood in front of the building shouting through megaphones. He and his friends all live in Victoria now, and have been watching some of the Oilers' postseason games at his condo.

Fleury thought it was the Penguins' best team game of the playoffs, a theory that teammates and coach Mike Sullivan echoed. The Ducks are also just 2-6 in Game 7s in their history while the Oilers are 6-3. The eight goals already are a career postseason high, one more than the seven he scored en route to the 2007 championship. Ryan Getzlaf shows us time and time again that he's capable of strapping a team to his back in big games and carrying it across the goal line.

Talbot came far out of the net a few minutes later to swat away a puck and break up a 2-on-0 opportunity.

The Ducks have excelled with youth on the blue line. With Pittsburgh's potent offense, though, Ottawa will likely need to play with the lead to be successful in this series. It was his first goal of postseason.

Kevin Bieksa may be a game-time decision after taking part in the Ducks' morning skate Friday. They were outworked, outhustled, outhit and outshot in the second, 16-3.

The Ducks have too much experience in the playoffs to make me want to root for them.

The Ducks eventually took over on the goal by Ritchie.

Ritchie beat Cam Talbot 3:21 into the third period, his second career playoff goal putting the Ducks ahead in a game seven for the first time in five years - and ahead of the Oilers for the first time in almost 193 minutes since late in game four.

More good news for Anaheim is that captain Ryan Getzlaf is playing at a Conn Smythe level. The victory fell on his 32nd birthday. I'm born and raised in Ontario, maybe 300 miles north of Toronto, grew up as a Toronto Maple Leaf fan, drafted by the Toronto Maple Leafs, played for them for two years, got to coach the Toronto Maple Leafs.

"Always an Oilers fan, to the end", she said. He was held scoreless for the second straight night. "It's a great sign for a team".

“Having the clinching game last night and then being — I dont know if its called forced — to play the next game in less than 48 hours is kind of a surprise, ” Carlyle said.
