Nashville Is A Great Place To Play Hockey

The Ducks defense mirrored how the Predators defense had been playing in taking a 2-1 lead in the series. Filip Forsberg scored the tying goal 3:54 into the third period, and Roman Josi netted the power-play victor with 2:43 left, and in between were two goals waved off for goaltender interference.

It's the NHL's longest streak since Detroit won 10 straight in 1997-98 after Colorado went 11-0 in 1996-97.

Perry ended the second overtime in this series with a goal originally credited to Nate Thompson. But about 10 minutes into overtime, Perry was just trying to feed a teammate in front of the net when P.K. Subban deflected the pass right into his own net.

Nashville also has outshot the Ducks in each game and been downright smothering at times.

Like Tuesday, the NBCSN starts their coverage of the game at 7 p.m.

Shortly after Subban's goal, the Ducks took two more penalties - one for high-sticking and another for slashing - giving the Predators a 5-on-3 man advantage.

The Predators have been making history one game at a time.

Subban scored off a blast from the blue line to revive the standing-room only crowd with Forsberg helping screen Gibson. Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle might have doubted the validity of the shot count in Game 3, but he and his players knew the ice was tilted in the Predators' favor. Just 29 seconds later, defenseman Josh Manson slashed James Neal.

And if you're one of those fans who looks for reasons why their favourite team is losing, please know that Kelly Clarkson's incredible anthem before the game is not the reason why Nashville lost. The Predators couldn't get the puck past Gibson.

Josi's game-winner was the first power-play goal of the series for Nashville.

It's a game four game night in Smashvile and Pred Fever keep on growing in the Music City.

It happened in 2010 against the Chicago Blackhawks and again in 2011 against the Ducks. He scored 18 goals and added 24 assists in 72 games during the regular season.

Nashville Predators goalie Pekka Rinne (35), of Finland, celebrates with Filip Forsberg (9), of Sweden, Mike Fisher (12), and Roman Josi (59), of Switzerland, after the Predators beat the Anaheim Ducks in Game 3 of the Western.

They had 6:27 minutes to catch the Ducks. But Ritchie gave the Ducks a 2-0 lead at 10:22 with a wrister from the right circle, beating Rinne's blocker for his fourth this postseason.

As the Conference Finals continue we'll give you a recap from last night's game and what to look for in tonight's action.

The 5-3 final in Game 2 is looking like an aberration in which neither goaltender was at their best; goals are going to be hard to come by in this series regardless of which team is controlling the tempo.

Sullivan doesn't plan on naming a starter until after his team's skate on Friday morning. We will see a more energetic, physical, quick, complete team in game 4.
