Red-hot goalie Pekka Rinne carries Predators past Ducks

Ducks forward Nick Ritchie ejected in Game 6 vs. Predators

Ducks forward Nick Ritchie ejected in Game 6 vs. Predators

He had three points (1 G, 2 A) in 23 (regular-season plus playoff) games before Game Five.

The Nashville Predators have confirmed center Ryan Johansen needed emergency surgery because of an acute compartment syndrome in his left thigh. When everything is happening around us, you still feel hungry, and now we have a chance to play for the Cup.

"There was a turnover and I got lost on the back side", he said of his tiebreaking goal. "There is so much confidence in this dressing room what we can accomplish together if we play the right way".

Now they've swept the West's No. 1 seed in Chicago, downed St. Louis in six in the second round and then the Pacific Division champ in six games.

The Predators' Peter Laviolette became the fourth coach in National Hockey League history to lead three teams into the Final.

Laviolette joked that probably means he's been fired a lot. "Unfortunately we weren't able to elevate enough to get by them".

Finally, the time has come: the Predators are the bride. They will now wait to see whether they will play Pittsburgh or Ottawa in the final. Before Game 6, Rinne also sported a 1.62 goals against average to go with a.942 save percentage and two shutouts during the 2017 playoffs.

Anaheim lost in the conference finals for the second time in three years.

Shots and hits can be inflated or undercounted by statisticians, but the Predators clearly carried the play in the second period, when they held the Ducks to four shots - but one of those was Perry's sharp-angled goal against Pekka Rinne, at 15:35, during a power play they gained when Nash-ville's Cody McLeod got an instigator penalty for fighting Ducks forward Jared Boll.

Teens climb up Golden Gate Bridge, hang from cables
Golden Gate Bridge officials became aware of the stunt a week and a half ago when they saw the video online, authorities said. The reckless behavior of the individuals who performed this stunt does not distract from this fact", Clemens said.

That was preceded by a six-game victory over the Blues in the Western Conference semifinals. We just believe in ourselves.

Ear-splitting noise boosting the Preds to a 2-0 lead behind goals from Watson and Sissons in the first 8:47.

Filip Forsberg and Austin Watson iced it at 17:38 and 18:26, respectively, with empty-net goals. But it was goalie Pekka Rinne who was mostly responsible for a 6-3 series-clinching win on Monday. Ondrej Kase's second career goal, both coming in this series, cut the Anaheim deficit in half. Chris Wagner again reduced the deficit to one, banking the puck off of Rinne's head and the game was tied after Cam Fowler's shot from above the left faceoff circle beat the Predators netminder.

Former Tennessee Titans running back Eddie George was also in attendance, as he acted as one of the towel wavers to fire up the crowd before the game.

That didn't even include the throngs packing the plaza outside the arena's front doors and the park across the street.

Bernier, making his first playoff start because John Gibson (lower-body injury) couldn't go, gave up goals on two of the first three shots. They are clicking, outscoring the Sens 10-2 the last two games thanks to a seven-goal outburst in game five. Jhonas Enroth was the backup in the game. He finished a game-high plus-5.

Carrie Underwood, of course, was in attendance and vocal about the Predators advancing to the Stanley Cup Finals.

Laviolette said his team would be allowed to savor the moment before turning attention to the finals.
