After blowing an early three goal lead, the Ducks managed to regroup in game 3 and come out victorious and draw them within a one game deficit.
The Ducks now shift their focus to another crucial game 4, where they can either pull even in the series with another road victory or fall within one game of being eliminated.
The Ducks flew from Edmonton to escape the city to Kelowna, to avoid the possible distractions and Oiler atmosphere.
Jakob Silfverberg was an Anaheim hero in game 3, netting two goals in the victory. Captain Ryan Getzlaf pitched in a goal and an assist, and Rickard Rakell, Chris Wagner and Ryan Kesler all found the score sheet in the blowout.
John Gibson made a couple of incredible acrobatic saves at opportune times to hold his team to at least a tie, where they soon rewarded him after with some further goal support.
Gibson owns a 2.80 GAA and a .911 SV%, and more crucial point blank saves will likely be needed in this one.
Connor McDavid had the highlight of the night from game 3, pivoting on a dime to losing his check in the offensive zone and bury a beautiful snapshot past Gibson to even the game at 3-3.
Unfortunately, Cam Talbot let in a weak goal within minutes after and killed any momentum the Oilers have built.
Kris Russell looked sharp on the back end and led the team with two assists in the game. The Oilers defensive unit as a whole will need to regroup after allowing six, and get back to limiting the Ducks’ chances.
Cam Talbot certainly didn’t have his A-game on Sunday, and as mentioned the 4th goal cannot happen again if the Oilers are to sustain a lead and momentum.
Look for a nice rebound from the netminder, who has been solid overall with a 2.47 GAA and a .918 SV% these playoffs.
