Vegas Play of the Day: Ducks at Oilers

"There's going to be ups and downs through every playoff game, every series and it's about controlling our emotions and using it to our advantage".

After losing Game 1 and Game 2 at home, the Ducks weren't surviving a 3-0 series deficit.

Here is a rundown of Game 1 in each series.

Game 3 is Sunday at Nashville, Tennessee.

The seriousness of the present situation for the Oilers was illustrated by McLellan switching lines after falling behind 3-0 in the first period of Game 3.

It took a couple of fortunate bounces off the net and a timely clearance off the goal line to keep the game from going into overtime.

The Blues started to push back in the middle part of the second.

Worst hit: Nashville's Vern Fiddler on St. Louis' Colton Parayko - Predators fans didn't like it. Just see this stat: of the team's six game-winning goals in the playoffs, all six have been by a different player.

"We have to just find our game", said Maroon.

Edmonton Oilers left wing Anton Slepyshev 42) celebrates his goal against the Anaheim Ducks during the first period in Game 3 of a second-round NHL hockey Stanley Cup playoff series in Edmonton, Alberta, Sunday, April 30, 2017.


Defenseman Kevin Bieksa isn't expected back in the Ducks' lineup until late in the second-round series, if it gets that far.

Letestu added a second goal on the power play at 6:23 to put Edmonton ahead in the third and quickly Adam Larsson scored less than two minutes later to give the Oilers a 3-1 lead.

After generating a turnover in the offensive zone, McDavid took the puck and was starting to skate around the Anaheim defense when all of the sudden, he pivoted with one skate and turned the defender completely around, leaving an open mark for the net.

The Ducks, who rallied from 3-1 down in the third period on goals by Patrick Eaves and Jakob Silfverberg, were caught out of position when Larsson rushed the puck. Henrik Lundqvist and Craig Anderson were both on their game as the teams struggled for goals.

But we're seeing a different Rinne in this series: He has already allowed double his first-round total through Games 1 and 2 of the second round, for a save percentage of.880.

Edmonton got one back with 39.5 seconds left in the period, with a shot taking what looked to be a deflection off of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Patrick Maroon before going in, though the official scorer later removed Nugent Hopkins' assist. "I think we needed a game like that where we were able to help the team win".

Because this is where a series can be won or lost. With Washington and Pittsburgh meeting again in the playoffs, the battle of Sidney Crosby vs. Alex Ovechkin was strong early. Talbot was pulled midway through the second period against the Ducks after giving up four goals on 18 shots.

The Ducks had 40 shots on net, and 19 in the third period. He scored to tie the game. The Swedish defenseman got the go-ahead score on an unlikely deflection.

In the other dressing room, the Oilers know what it's like after you steal a game in the opposing team's rink. Talbot played in 73 regular-season games, tied with Washington's Braden Holtby in 2014-15 for the busiest workload by a goalie over the last five years.
