Silfverberg scores 2, Ducks beat Oilers 6-3 in Game 3

Just like in the 1st round the Ducks continue to struggle with penalties, the Ducks have taken 12 penalties in both games while the Oilers have taken 10.

The majority of the talk regarding the Anaheim Ducks' strategy to defeat the Edmonton Oilers in their Western Conference semifinal series focused around stopping Hart Trophy candidate Connor McDavid.

"I can already taste that delicious Anaheim craft beer", Mayor Iveson said.

"It was just like the game was being played there", Bob Nicholson, the chief executive of the Oilers Entertainment Group, said Thursday about the fast ticket sales.

Anaheim Ducks' Hampus Lindholm, right, from Sweden, tries to get past Edmonton Oilers' Adam Larsson, from Sweden, during the first period in Game 3 of a second-round NHL hockey Stanley Cup playoff series in Ed. The Ducks are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 18.7 percent of their power play opportunities. One of the things he's done a very good job of all season is understanding that without his offense on a given night, we still have the ability to win.

The score gave the Ducks a 5-3 lead in the third period but McLellan said Rickard Rakell's game-opening goal did the most damage. Ducks D Kevin Bieksa, who left Game 2 with an injury, was out Sunday.

"The way we played in our [defensive zone] matched the way that we executed, matched the way that we competed all over the ice", said Yeo. Whether McLellan was resting his star or sending him a message is a matter of interpretation, but it's not much of a stretch to guess that it will get his attention.

However, the Oilers quickly responded through their own power play.

If you'd seen the clips of our transition D, you would've traded all the players and fired me by the end of the game. With Capela and Nene , the Rockets had the slight edge on the Spurs' Dwayne Demond-Pau Gasol combo.

But with all the momentum seemingly against the Oilers, a fortunate bounce put them back in front for good. Both games were relatively close, but the Oilers continued to prove their dominance in the third period. The Oilers challenged the play for offside, but the goal stood after a video review.

The Anaheim Ducks ticked off a lot of boxes in the first two games of their Western Conference second-round series. "So it's 0-0 going into tonight and you know the urgency and the competitiveness goes up another level as the series goes on and we expect that here tonight". "I'm sure many Edmontonians could use a warm vacation in Anaheim, with all the fun activities we have to offer here".

"Let's go meet Cam", Gretzky said.

"It's nice to get two goals, but it doesn't mean much if we don't win the game", Larsson said.

While Draisaitl was a constant point-producer this season, the Oilers got an additional boost from an unexpected source in Game 1. The Ducks also hit multiple posts in Game 2, but nothing could get by Talbot, who made most of his tough saves well before the final eight minutes. The Oilers appear to have received the benefit of it during the first two games, winning 5-3 on Wednesday and 2-1 on Friday.

The Oilers seem to have the Ducks' number right now.

The Ducks had a similar getaway two seasons ago during a two-day break during their second-round series against the Flames, practicing for two days in Banff, Alberta, in order to relax and avoid the playoff frenzy of Calgary. The Blues tied the game at 2 on a goal by Jori Lehtera at 7:39 of the third period before Tarasenko took over.

Game 2 is Friday night. It was the first two-goal game he has ever had. With the series now tied at one game apiece, the Predators will need him to recapture his earlier brilliance as they host the Blues for Game 3. The Ducks were 1/4 on the power play.
