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

The Oilers still lead the best-of-seven Western Conference semifinal series two games to one.

Patrick Eaves and Ryan Getzlaf also scored for Anaheim, which had won eight straight games in regulation.

Ryan Ellis opened the scoring midway through the first period before McLeod doubled Nashville's lead.

Everybody in hockey knows McDavid is in his first postseason run after winning the NHL scoring title, but Talbot had just two games of backup playoff experience in his entire career before this spring.

The Edmonton Oilers are happy with a 2-0 series lead over the Anaheim Ducks but not happy with how they played in a 2-1 win on Friday night. For them to win in Game 3, the bulk of the load has to fall on Perry and the rest of the Ducks' goal scorers.

"Hundred percent a steal", McDavid pointed out to Sportsnet after the victory in Game 2. "We can handle the ups and downs". "This group has been through a lot this year, and it's starting to show".

Just as he has faced shots throughout the course of the season, Oilers goalie Cam Talbot has faced questions about his extensive workload.

Maroon had four goals in 16 playoff games at Honda Center during his five seasons with the Ducks.

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? The Ducks admittedly were being sucked into the vortex of cheers from the home crowd, until Wagner, who played just nine minutes, got one.

Even with a two-goal lead, the best moment of the period had to have been the TV broadcast cutting to the "lucky" concourse ticket holders looking shocked in disbelief. Rinne blanked the Blues after Alexander Steen scored with about seven minutes left in the second period.

The night got off to an unusual start when the microphone failed to work as Canadian country singer Brett Kissel came out to sing the US anthem, decked out in an Oilers jersey and guitar. "The last two games weren't us".

From that point on, the Ducks came after the Oilers with everything they had.

For all of Gibson's faults, the Oilers' Cam Talbot was at his worst since a five-goal stinker in Game 4 against the Sharks in the first round.

Silfverberg got his stick on a loose puck at 5:32 when Oilers defenceman Adam Larsson failed to clear it away from Talbot. Edmonton challenged it for being offside, but the goal stood upon review. We're comfortable in this position, and we understand that they've been here before and have played in these games. "The backbreaker was the 25 seconds in". Granted, the goal he scored was an empty-netter, but when he scored it, it seems like the Ducks weren't prioritizing their defense of him. He stopped Patrick Maroon on a three-on-one, Milan Lucic on a setup by Connor McDavid and Andrej Sekera with a left-pad split save. The Edmonton cornerstone also landed Kesler's linemate, Jakob Silfverberg, in the box at one point.

Edmonton went up 3-1 on Larsson's first goal of the playoffs at 8:03 of the third period. He has four goals in the series. The teams' last playoff meetup was in the 2006 Western Conference Final, when the Oilers won the series.
