Preds Players, Coach Talk Playoffs, Game 6

The Nashville Predators already face a daunting challenge when they attempt to take control of the Western Conference finals in a pivotal Game 5 on the road.

Game 5 of the Western Conference final was a poor showing for the host Ducks but it turned ugly with just under 10 seconds remaining in the game.

Last week, Toronto Blue Jays center fielder Kevin Pillar was suspended from two games after calling an Atlanta Braves pitcher a "faggot".

Aberg had to send himself flying across the crease to swat home a rebound of Filip Forsberg's shot for the Predators, epitomizing Nashville's persistent effort through a defensive victory. Aberg, especially, was extremely effective in his game-winning goal with nine minutes to play in the game. Anaheim did not dress C Rickard Rakell, D Korbinian Holzer, RW Patrick Eaves, C Logan Shaw, D Shea Theodore, C Sam Carrick and G Jhonas Enroth. North of halfway through period two, Chris Wagner found the back of the net, ending what was 32:46 of scoreless hockey at Honda Center. "I hope I didn't offend anybody outside the circle that we trust". We showed a lot of character. Things were going our way.

ANA vs. NSH - NSH leads 3-2 - Game six is tomorrow night in Nashville.

That quickly changed as the Predators scored three unanswered goals the rest of the way off the sticks of Colin Wilson, a player who desperately needed to get on the right track offensively, Pontus Aberg, and Austin Watson.

Goalie John Gibson also has a lower-body injury, which knocked him out of the last two periods of Game 5. "It is one game at a time, but we know that our next win puts us into contention for the Stanley Cup".

The league didn't specify what Getzlaf said and to whom. "They came out and worked harder than us in the second and third period, and that made the difference in the hockey game".

When Gibson failed to return for the second period, Bernier was abruptly sent into the fourth playoff game of his National Hockey League career, and he immediately made a handful of strong stops. That's for sure. We've proven that time after time.

"Obviously, we're going to miss him", Ekholm added. We'll re-energize our group, and we'll look forward to playing a better game. "I think it doesn't matter if you play at home or away, you're up in the series, you want to get that fourth win".

The Predators will not only have the chance to clinch their first-ever berth in the Stanley Cup Finals tomorrow.

The coach only confirmed that Johansen was hurt during Game 4, but played through the injury and finished the game. Laviolette also declined to give any update on the condition of center Mike Fisher, who took a hit to the head in Game 4 when he ducked in front of a leaping Manson.

Both teams were missing significant players due to injuries.
