NASHVILLE 3 ANAHEIM 1 (Predators lead 3-2)
Pontus Aberg (yes, that's a real name) was the hero as Nashville came back to win 3-1 and now stand one win away from their first trip to the Stanley Cup Finals. Injuries have taken their toll on both teams, Nashville's hit was down the middle with Ryan Johansen (who had surgery for Acute Compartment Syndrome, and in the name of all that's holy please, do not google this. I know people tell you this when they want you, but I swear to god just take my advice that it's horrifying and that is all you need to know) and Mike Fisher. That meant some line shuffling and the insertion of Aberg into the lineup. The Ducks also had some injury issues as John Gibson left at the start of the 2nd period with a lower body injury, and was replaced by Jonathan Bernier.
Meanwhile, another Duck did something stupid that crossed a line last night...

Yeah, between this blatant abuse of officials and Ryan Getzlaf's "here's my apology except the only thing I am sorry about is that I became the victim of all this" apology, it will be a beautiful thing for the game of hockey if the Preds can send these sorry sacks of shit packing on Monday night.
