Nashville Puts Anaheim on the Brink

The NHL on Saturday fined Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf $10,000 for the use of what it called an inappropriate remark Thursday night during Game 4 of the Western Conference finals against Nashville.

The Swedish forward had seven goals and six assists in 15 postseason games, including a goal in the Ducks' overtime victory in Game 4 of the conference finals. Nashville also needs to trust the system, trusting the system leads to third periods like the one we saw Saturday, it leads to wins.

Ducks goaltender John Gibson left Game 5 after the first period because of a lower-body injury and did not return. The Predators will have an opportunity to clinch their first Stanley Cup finals berth.

In between all the hits, the slashes and the post-whistle scrums, the teams found time to score a couple of goals.

Patrick Eaves did not travel with the Ducks to Nashville and is doubtful on Monday with a leg injury. Pontus Aberg scored the game-winning goal with 8:59 remaining in regulation. Rinne is 11-4 in these playoffs, and his 1.62 goals-against average is the fourth-lowest with his.942 save percentage the fourth-highest in National Hockey League history with a minimum of 15 games played.

As coach Peter Laviolette put it, the guys know what's at stake.

Aberg and several other role players all came up big in the Predators' first game of the season without Johansen, their top-line center and leading postseason scorer. "We'll wait until he is off the ice and has a conversation with the training staff, and then we'll make a decision based upon that".


Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle was disappointed with the team's execution but is optimistic the Ducks can bring forth an effort to extend the series to a Game 7 on Wednesday at Honda Center.

Here's a look at each team's complete playoff roster, including how each player came to his current team - and how much time he spent paying his dues in the minors. But the team could also be without captain Mike Fisher, who is listed as day-to-day after missing Game 5 with an unspecified injury. Down 3-2 in the best-of-seven series, there is no turning back now. His symptoms developed shortly after the end of Game Four in Nashville, and as they progressed, he was diagnosed, transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center and had surgery performed by head team physician Dr. Jed Kuhn within two hours of his diagnosis.

"We obviously know what's at stake", forward Colin Wilson said Sunday.

Forsberg exemplifies the outstanding conditioning and ability to create an untenable tempo for opponents that has made Nashville so unsafe late in games.

"There wasn't a positive response from Eaves's skating yesterday", Carlyle said. He went 21-7-4 in the regular season and has appeared in three games this postseason.

Get More Power from the Power Play The Senators have been given a number of great chances to capitalize on Penguin penalties, but have yet to convert one this series, including going 0-for-4 Friday night on the power play.
