Though the odds are stacked against them, the Ducks have erased 0-2 series deficits twice since 2014.

...

Their fans call themselves the "Orange Crush," and you will see it in full effect tonight.

 

"If we focus on ourselves, which is what we're going to do, we're going to gain energy from it," said Patrick Eaves. "We had a great atmosphere [in Anaheim] the last two games. We'll expect a great one [in Edmonton]."

"You always look at the bounces," said head coach Randy Carlyle. "We had lots of bounces go our way in the Calgary series. The power-play goal they scored last night went off a skate. That is the kind of stuff that is happening to us. Could we have been in better position? Yes. We could've cleared the puck down the ice. We felt, at the top, there was a pick pulled off and the puck changes sides. In reality, we didn't score enough goals or get enough traffic to the net. We had our fair share of chances. There is still more for us to give."

...

Carlyle said Sami Vatanen (upper body) is "inching closer" to returning to the lineup and they'll get another opportunity to evaluate him tomorrow in Edmonton. Vatanen hasn't played since Game 1 against Calgary. Nick Ritchie missed Game 2 last night due to flu-like symptoms that developed suddenly and unexpectedly just prior to warmups. Ritchie appeared fine during the day and even took line rushes, but Carlyle said he had to leave the ice early.

Nick Ritchie and Sami Vatanen took part in the optional skate this morning for the Ducks. Also with the club are rookies Nicolas Kerdiles and Ondrej Kase, recalled yesterday from San Diego, in the midst of a first round series against the Ontario Reign. Asked if either (or both) could draw into the lineup tonight, head coach Randy Carlyle said "full contingent of players available." Carlyle added that it's about dressing the best lineup possible, plain and simple.

...

Just because the Ducks are in this 0-2 hole doesn't mean they're down in the dumps. Quite the contrary, actually. "There is a good feeling in our group because of the work ethic we provided and the number of chances we created," Carlyle told reporters. "We're going use the crowd as a springboard for us. The emotions will be high. We have to stay disciplined. We're not looking behind."
 

Ducks defenseman Josh Manson, forever stoic in his interviews, says he and his teammates are ready for the task. "We're not in a panic, but we know we need to get some wins here," he said. "We're a little bit more desperate. We're a confident group. We have veteran leadership in this room and they're keeping everything calm. They've been in these spots before. We're not panicking. We're ready."

That's a tough one, can't tell from replay.

 

If the stick is up around his head, that that should be above the crossbar........guess not......  3-1

Great period! Ducks with 3 great goals, Oilers get lucky on one. No big deal.

 

Now just don't sit on the lead, which I don't think they've had a problem with all year.

Ducks doing a good job of slowing down the oil, even in the neutral zone. And we're getting good zone exits and entries.

It is shocking the number of bounces the Oilers are getting in this series.

Jesus... God forbid anyone look at McDavid the wrong way. What a weak penalty with all the other stuff they're letting go (rightfully letting those go btw).

VERY weak call on Perry.........

 

Vats blew the coverage on that goal, but it looked like Gibson ducked....

 

WAGNER!  and no lucky bounce.....    4-3
