Ducks' reward for Game 7 win is date with Rinne and Preds

Anaheim Ducks left wing Nick Ritchie celebrates after scoring during the third period in Game 7 of a second-round NHL hockey Stanley Cup playoff series against the Edmonton Oilers in Anaheim, Calif., Wednesday, May 10, 2017. They also came back from being down 0-2 in a series for the first time in franchise history.

That the was the start the Oilers needed and they wore it well, riding a 1-0 lead into the first intermission. I thought that we created a lot, and eventually we were going to get one by him. However, Gibson is not a goalie I feel great about. We've been doing that the whole playoffs.

Nick Ritchie, Ducks - Ritchie now has three goals in the playoffs and two in the last two games of the series after scoring the game victor.

Unless Bieksa draws in, the Ducks have their six on the blue line - Cam Fowler, Sami Vatanen, Hampus Lindholm, Brandon Montour, Josh Manson and Shea Theodore. The 21-year-old power forward wasn't around for any of the Anaheim Ducks' agonizing Game 7 defeats over the past four seasons. "Did way better than what was expected so I'm happy". "But it was a good feeling to see it go in". Wednesday was Gibson's best game of the postseason and he's 7-3 with a 2.80 GAA and.908 save percentage overall. They fell behind the Oilers just 3:31 into this seventh game, but the rest of the night largely belonged to Anaheim, which finally showed some veteran mettle in the playoffs' biggest crucible.

"It's a big step for us - not only for us as players, but also as an organization", goaltender Pekka Rinne said. We've got your way to live stream the game on May 10 at 10pm EST.

Peter Laviolette is not one to waste precious time reflecting on how he feels about taking his third different National Hockey League team to the conference finals.

Nashville lost two of three to Anaheim in the regular season, one in a shootout. Five years later, Nashville stole the first two games of the clubs' first-round series at Honda Center before winning the final two, including a nail-biting 2-1 victory in a Game 7 dominated by Rinne. Rinne picked up right where he left off last season when Nashville eliminated Anaheim from the first round in seven games, but Gibson was similarly outstanding.

"The way we've played the last half of the season where we've learned to deal with adversity, we needed that again tonight", Getzlaf said after Game 7. "It was their first game in a while. We've gotten contributions from those guys so that's a really good sign".

If you were a casual observer, you'd look at this matchup of the best team in the West taking on the bottom ranked Wild Card seed and think that it was a clear path for the Ducks. We haven't played a team like that in a while.

"You know, Game 6 was an elimination game for us". From a professional standpoint, I had to back the Ducks because I predicted they would advance.

There have been upsets, dominance, disappointment, drama, and exciting games to watch in these 2017 NHL Playoffs. Eaves was spotted on crutches after being injured in Game 3 of the Ducks' conference semifinal series against the Edmonton Oilers.

Two injury notes for the Ducks.

Brenden Dillon, San Jose: Solid playoff run with 1 assist, plus-1 in six games on third pairing.

The Ducks will open up the Western Conference Finals at home against Nashville on Friday, and they are slight favorites. The sellout crowd filled in throughout the night.
