Ducks' reward for Game 7 win is date with Rinne and Preds

Predators look like the Western Conference winner but the Cup still belongs to Penguins

They negotiated the first round just fine.

The Ducks gave up only one goal, and that was on a misplay by Shea Theodore directly in front of John Gibson, three-and-a-half minutes in. Edmonton's Leon Draisaitl recorded a hat trick to highlight his five-point performance in that contest and increase his point total to 16 (six goals, 10 assists) in his last eight games after being held off the scoresheet in his first four playoff tilts. The 21-year-old power forward wasn't around for any of the Anaheim Ducks' agonizing Game 7 defeats over the past four seasons. They took out one of the top, toughest teams in the Western Conference in the first round, and forced the Pacific Division champions into a seven-game series. In 2013, the Ducks lost to them again in a hard-fought series.

Drake Caggiula had a goal and Cam Talbot made 28 saves for the Oilers, who fell to 3-3 all-time when playing Game 7 on the road. This series is a playoff poolie's delight.

Talbot has stolen a game from the Ducks before in this series.

What's it like having a five-goal lead as a goalie, he was asked?

Sure, there was plenty of on-paper rationale to believe the Caps would advance to the Stanley Cup Final. For the past four years, Bruce Boudreau was the Ducks' head coach, and the Ducks must hope that their Game 7 curse ended with his firing. The rest of them were post-season neophytes.

"At times, it doesn't seem honest". "I don't know how you're supposed to feel comfortable when they're holding you like that". "We were missing two real important guys".

"I don't know how to say it in a good way, but this would would (mean) nothing more than to win this Game 7". You'd probably only agree with that if you've actually got enough lights on to see how unusual the series has been thus far, something that many commentators have seen and tons of fans have recognized as well.

The photo has gone viral, Rosalina said her son is a big McDavid fan, and was really excited to see the photo spread online.

"Leo led the charge", Letestu said.

Sometimes, your best wager is the one you never make. And the only way to finally shed the label of a club that can't get it done with the season on the line is to, well, get it done with the season on the line. Perry and Getzlaf represent cap hits of $8.6 million and $8.3 million, respectively, the eighth- and 12th-most-expensive numbers in the league. No points from McDavid, but so what? They were physical on the forecheck, stood forwards up in the neutral zone, and did a great job of keeping a stranglehold on the pace of the game. "We've got a pretty proud city". "We just came up short". "He had the fourth point on a lot of goals, but you can't do it on one man's shoulders".

Who: Edmonton Oilers vs.

What went wrong for the Ducks, apart from and ice-cold Gibson? Basically, they had no momentum. We weren't able to recover. Love and best wishes, from Randy Carlyle.

They gave Draisaitl way too much room, right off the hop. Get $60 worth of FREE premium member picks.

"We've basically killed the bar code on the tickets they've had when we've caught them trying to resell above face value", he said.

"At this point, I don't know how much more really needs to be said", said Milan Lucic, whose nine Game 7s are almost half of the 19 games of do-or-die experience that Edmonton has on its roster.
