NHL Playoffs: Ducks still alive after beating Edmonton
May 03 2017 by Dustin Murphy
Cam Talbot made 39 saves, stealing a 2-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks Friday night. "We just have to keep that in mind and put as much as we can to them". Roman Josi also scored in the 3-1 win, bringing Nashville's defenseman goal total to seven for the playoffs. The Oilers have enjoyed good luck by emerging victorious in each of the previous four playoff series in which they have won the first two games on the road, including the 2006 conference final against Anaheim.
"I think it is fun to see guys rewarded that have worked so hard all year", Larsson said. "And I didn't make a lot of other saves during the game that I needed to".

Ryan Kesler's best play of the series came on Silfverberg's second goal.
But despite being two games away from a return visit, with Game 3 on Sunday in Edmonton, the Oilers understand the slim margin they have navigated in being up two games instead of down by two.
James Neal and Ryan Ellis scored to give the Predators a 2-1 lead.
The Ducks quickly lost home-ice advantage after Game 1, in which coach Randy Carlyle was dissatisfied with the effort of his players after Anaheim dispatched the Calgary Flames in a four-game sweep.
McLellan pointed out that he had changed that Nugent-Hopkins line for a time recently, but that happened when the Oilers were down 5-0 in the 7-0 loss against San Jose. "I mean, he's just one of those guys that finds a way every night". "And like I tell him all the time, goalies are supposed to stop the puck". Overall, Holtby's postseason numbers don't inspire confidence - 22 goals allowed in eight starts and a. 911 save percentage - but Trotz is sticking with his guns as the Caps head to Pittsburgh in an 0-2 hole. Rickard Rakell was able to light the lamp twenty-five seconds into the game on a breakaway. "It's about getting ourselves back in the series, giving us a chance", Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf said. "It took everyone collectively to make sure we stayed on the right path. And we did things as a unit". It was Maroon's third goal of the playoffs. "We learned a lot during the last series", said defenseman Adam Larsson, who scored two goals in Game 1, including the victor with 4:40 remaining in regulation.
Anaheim gradually turned the period in its favor, but couldn't score. Jordan Eberle fired a centring pass towards the crease and it struck Maroon in the right skate. Mark Letestu had two power-play goals on Wednesday and has three so far in postseason.
The Ducks kept up their pressure and finally beat Talbot on the power play with a typically wicked wrist shot by Silfverberg.
Tarasenko's game-winner came on lucky bounce. Talbot played in an NHL-high 73 games and is the man between the pipes in the playoffs.
Kevin Bieksa remains sidelined due to lower body injury. Vatanen has yet to appear in this round due to an upper-body injury.
Ducks forward Nick Ritchie missed Game 2 with an illness and is questionable to play on Sunday. Puck drop from Rogers Place is 5:00pm, 630 CHED will have live coverage starting with the Face-Off Show at 3:00pm.
The Oilers are on their way home for game three of their second round series with the Ducks.
