Larsson leads Oilers past Ducks 5-3 in wild series opener

SPORTSCam Talbot carries Oilers past Ducks 2-1 to 2-0 series lead	Email

The Predators lost Kevin Fiala to an ugly leg injury in the second period and blew a 3-1 lead before Fiddler poked a loose puck by Jake Allen in the third.

"You can see on the bench, we didn't panic" after Anaheim tied it, Larsson said. The Ducks expect more from themselves in Game 3 on Sunday in what's sure to be a raucous Rogers Place. "I mean, he's just one of those guys that finds a way every night".

Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf had a goal and an assist with Anaheim also getting goals from Rickard Rakell, Chris Wagner and Ryan Kesler. And even though they roared to a three-goal lead after 12 minutes on Sunday, only to let the Oilers tie it eight minutes into the second, they packed a 6-3 victory in their bags as they flew to Kelowna, B.C., for two days before Wednesday's Game 4.

"Just chalk it up to a bad game", McDavid said.

"We gave up the goal four-on-four where we had full possession, which was the last thing we wanted. Our group showed a little bit of resiliency".

Talbot made 39 saves in Game 2 and was under pressure for much of the third period, and while his performance helped the team win, his teammates don't want to rely on him as much back at home.

Can the Anaheim Ducks avoid a 3-0 deficit when they hit the road to face the Anaheim Ducks today at 7PM ET in Game 3 of their NHL Playoff series?

Notes: Forward Iiro Pakarinen and defenceman Eric Gryba were the only players among the Oilers' 10 scratches that played in the first round. … Ducks D Sami Vatanen (upper body) did not go through pre-game warmups or play despite coach Randy Carlyle previously saying he would be "available".

Edmonton got two of those back in a two-minute span sandwiched after the first intermission. He scored Edmonton's first goal to start the second-period rally, his second in as many games and fourth point against the Ducks so far.

Getzlaf (at 37 seconds) and Letestu (at 6:22) each scored a power-play goal in the second period.

Maroon was in the penalty box for knocking down Gibson when Getzlaf beat Talbot with a wrist shot from the hashmarks at 11:51. He's played down the stretch, he played games against us, and he's had experience.

"We had an opportunity to get up mid-series against San Jose, and we obviously didn't perform very well", McLellan said.

McDavid was more active than in any of his previous seven post-season games but was unable to score.

Edmonton came roaring back in the second period. The goal was similar to his first score, converting a rebound of a Draisaitl shot with Connor McDavid earning the secondary assist.

The Oilers ended up on a 2-1 breakaway as Draisaitl carried the puck to the Anaheim zone, alongside Milan Lucic. The Oilers challenged the play for offside, but the goal stood after a video review. The last Edmonton player to record a playoff hat trick was Bill Guerin, now the assistant general manager of the Pittsburgh Penguins. "The backbreaker was the 25 seconds in". "Tim Thomas made, like, 54 saves for us on the road in Game 2 in the second round against the Flyers to give us the win".

Secondary scoring? How about a weird one from Andrej Sekera?

2 Jakob Silfverberg delivered again.

Almost 150 minutes into the series, Gibson had given up nine goals. The Oilers won 5-3.

Silfverberg knocked in a feed from Josh Manson at 4:56 of the third to make it 5-3.
