If the Ducks come out with that same kind of start tonight, and continue to display the type of unwavering confidence they've shown throughout the postseason, is there anyone that can stand in their way?

 

"I think the last three or four years we've obviously gone through a lot, more downs in the playoffs than ups," said John Gibson. "But I think we just learn from that and I think now that we have a sense of calmness and we have the ability to always regroup, whether we're up or down or something like that happens, I think we all just have the belief in the locker room and we trust one another that we can come back or have success in any situation."

Finally back from vacation.

I've been watching in spurts. Hard enough living in the Eastern time zone being a Ducks fan, let alone on vacation.

Let's get this one done boys and move one closer to ending the series.

If you're going to Game 5 please cheer loudly for the Ducks! It can and often does make a difference. I had season tickets every year when I went to Cornell decades ago. The Big Red had a much better record at home than away, and we fans took pride in the results of a poll of ECAC players that voted Lynah Rink the most hated place to play in the East.

It matters in the NHL also. Nashville currently has the loudest crowd according to Steve Carroll, and the best home record in the playoffs to go with it. Laviolette gave kudos to the Nashville crowd after the 2nd round, and Cogliano also said the Ducks appreciate it when they get loud support from the crowd saying "we need everyone."

It's not low class behavior to loudly support your team. If you think it is, please give or sell your tickets to a more passionate Ducks fan and watch the game on TV in a wine bar in Newport.

No wonder you appreciate the game/culture of hockey so much.

 

Cornell/ Ithaca is the best damn "hockey town" south of the Canadian border. Awesome place for hockey because virtually everybody and their brother participates in the culture somehow. I'm not sure if it's still this way, but back in the day so many college profs and their associates played hockey they had their own league!

I wouldn't mind seeing Manson complete his trifecta by knocking Forsberg out of the playoffs as well.

Gibson is so bad at handling the puck.
Nik comes in and crosschecks a guy up high. Really dude?

Not happy with the first period at all.

 

We should have had at least two goals.

Got to convert these chances.

Got a weird feeling that Preds want this more.

Ducks played tentative in the first. The good news, Nash didn't score. Hopefully just another slow start, and they'll wake up in the 2nd.

Love how the announcers praise them for "getting a piece of the goal tender."
