Predators eliminate Ducks to reach first Stanley Cup Final

Hilda Schwartz | 05 June, 2017, 08:26

After Monday night, fans in Chicago can take a bit of consolation in the fact that they're not alone when it comes to losing to the Predators in these playoffs. "Everything that is happening around us, you still feel hungry and now we have a chance to play for the Cup". "It's certainly something that everyone dreamed of as a kid". "I was out there so I was good enough to go", he said Monday.

Surreal also would describe what was going on inside and outside the arena.

But Anaheim kept the pressure on and cut the lead back to one just two minutes later with Chris Wagner getting the goal.

Yearwood is married to fellow musician Garth Brooks, who showed up for Game 6 of the conference final against the Ducks to hear her. Gill has been a season ticket holder since the inaugural season of 1998-99 and was on the committee to design the arena.

Nashville made it 1-0 just 1:21 into the game on a goal from Austin Watson.

Of the 25 players that have appeared in the postseason for Nashville, 17 of them were once Admirals. "It's something that has been pretty cool to see".

Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne outplayed the Ducks' netminders yet again while he eliminated Anaheim from the playoffs for the third time in seven years. He's been the Predators' starting goalie since the 2008-09 season and has now become their most valuable playoff performer.

With Phillips' absence, the lineup moves up a slot, with Nick Markakis hitting second, Kemp third, and Matt Adams fourth. The Angels took a 1-0 lead in the second inning on Simmons' home run to center, his fifth of the season.

"I think, if you believe you're beaten, you're done already", Anderson said.

"In the back of your head, you've been thinking about the Final, and then when the buzzer goes off, it's an wonderful feeling". Kesler, who had 22 goals and 58 points in a Selke Trophy-finalist regular season, had one goal in the playoffs and none in his last 10 games. I mean, it was a gutsy effort. And I've got such a great group of guys in the locker room that I get to work with every day and the coaches get to work with every day. The rebound went out to Sissons, who scored his second of the game.

The Ducks would have had a lot more shots on goal had the Predators' defense been idle. Sissons is 23, a center who made his way into Nashville's lineup only this season but got bumped up to the first line when Johansen was hurt.

We won't know who we get until tomorrow night... or (fingers crossed) Friday morning... We scored three goals and probably should have five.

The best part of this is that there is no fake interest on display. I think it is the right one.

With the team clinching its first berth to the Stanley Cup Final in franchise history, morale, excitement, ticket demand - it's all through the roof. The Predators won 6-3 to win the series 4-2 and advance to the Stanley Cup Finals.

It's too hard to compare the situations, but Laviolette said: "Nashville has really taken on a life of its own". If they gave out awards on style points, they would be heading back to Honda Center for Game 7 on Wednesday. He has been in the National Hockey League since he accepted a job with the now-defunct Atlanta Flames as an administrative assistant in 1972.

Anaheim lost in the West finals for the second time in three years.
