Nashville managed to scrape out an overtime win in game one to take the early series lead in Anaheim. The Ducks will need to regroup and split the home series if they wish to stay out of a massive 2-0 deficit.
It was James Neal who was the OT hero in game one, putting his Preds up 1-0 in the series and winning the first game on the road. Fellow forwards, Filip Forsberg and Auston Watson, were Nashville’s other goal scorers, seeing three different lines chip in.
Mattias Ekholm might be the one of the most unheralded excellent defenders in the league, being over shadowed by PK Subban and Roman Josi in Tennessee. Ekholm led all defenders in game one with two assists.
Pekka Rinne continues to excel this postseason, playing some of the best hockey of his career. Rinne owns a 1.41 GAA and a .950 SV% while playing every minute in net for the Preds this Spring.
After falling behind 1-0, the Ducks will now need a critical game 2 win before leaving for Nashville. Jacob Silfverberg continues his excellent postseason, netting his 8th goal in game 1 on Friday to tie for the team lead with Ryan Getzlaf.
Getzlaf sits 3rd in the playoff point lead with 15, behind just Evgeni Malkin and Leon Draisaitl, who he and his Ducks eliminated on Wednesday. He will be an important player for the Ducks in what should amount to a heavy, close series.
To say John Gibson’s postseason has been a rollercoaster could be considered an understatement, though he looked good in game 1, allowing just 3 goals on 46 shots faced. Gibson owns a 2.78 GAA and a .911 SV% though 12 games.

In what should be a tightly-checked series, and a lengthy one at that, I like Anaheim’s veterans to step up and lead them to a victory.
