Ducks vs. Predators - Game 4 PREVIEW: Black Hole Sun

Ducks vs. Predators - Game 4 PREVIEW: Black Hole Sun

How it happened: Nashville trailed 2-0 after Rickard Rakell and Nick Ritchie scored on long shots that eluded Rinne to the short side.

The Predators then tied the game with 34 seconds to play in regulation, as Filip Forsberg punched in a goal from in front of the net.

The result ended the Predators' 10-game winning streak at home in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Nate Thompson was initially credited with the victor at 10:25 in overtime, though it looked like the pass that Corey Perry sent on net from the corner redirected off Nashville defenceman P.K. Subban. Corey Perry provided the game victor.

Game 5 is set for Saturday in Anaheim.

It's something the Predators had not fallen victim to in a pivotal game in the playoffs.

Anaheim having more blocks int he game you would think they won, yet they lost. Just 29 seconds later, defenseman Josh Manson slashed James Neal.

For the first couple of periods, this wasn't the up-and-down, track meet type of game that Nashville prefers. She scored a #1 hit in 2010 with "Don't You Wanna Stay" with Jason Aldean.

After the Nashville Predators concocted a stunning comeback to force overtime Thursday night in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals, the script nearly demanded they finish the deal.




Keith Urban performed the national anthem, the latest country star to take a turn, and his wife, actress Nicole Kidman, joined him in the stands decked out in her own Predators' sweater.

It was a tough night for Gibson, who made several spectacular saves to keep the Ducks ahead through two periods.

"We know they (the Ducks) can generate a lot so it's up to us at times to play solid defense, and sometimes that really has little to do with aggressiveness or speed".

Fisher, who is married to singer Carrie Underwood, had 18 goals and 24 assists during the regular season but has been held without a point in the playoffs. Their shorthanded unit has only allowed one goal in 17 opportunities through four games.

Bieksa was successful in that mission, though he took the third of four straight penalties called against the Ducks in that frantic third period.

Subban pulled the Predators within 2-1 at 13:33 of the third, firing a slapshot from just inside the blue line for his second playoff goal.

The Ducks win tied the series at two games apiece.

Sullivan doesn't plan on naming a starter until after his team's skate on Friday morning. "I think we've been doing that". Unfortunately for the home crowd, it didn't end with the result that they wanted.

"At this level, you do what the coach says", said Hoffman, who also played for Boucher in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
