"It's important to first have the belief that you can do it, and that you can go into other buildings, quiet the crowd and play - we always talk about a simple road game," said Cam Fowler. "We've proven to ourselves that we can do that. I don't think much carries over from anything you've done previously, but we know we have the capabilities to do that. It's more about execution now. We're trying to get our game going in the right direction, and we need to do that if we're going to steal one."

Run the goalie!

 

There I said it first, so now when L&G copies me I can take all the credit.

"This is another game," said captain Ryan Getzlaf, emphasizing the importance of treating each game as its own entity. "You have to win four before they do. You never want to fall behind too far. If we accomplish that, we get our home ice back and get back to our building."

...

A full day off yesterday gave the Ducks some much-needed rest, so we'll see if it pays off tonight.

 

"A couple of these games, we weren't ourselves," said rookie defenseman Brandon Montour, who is averaging 19:22 TOI in the playoffs. "We want to stick to our game plan and what we've been successful with. We'll be good to go. We had a good day off yesterday. We'll be fresh and ready to go."

 

Getzlaf adds, "We just need to take care of the puck a little bit better than we did in the last game. We didn't move it effectively."

Yeah, no kidding. Preds were trapping with 4 guys in the neutral zone. Need to hit the zone with speed; drop passes to player coming up fast, close support, keep I moving. We'll see the team we're used to seeing tonight!

I'm saving up for puck drop!

 

Of course, I'll be in the car for that....

Well you do anyway. But somebody has to keep you in check!

At least the Ducks have the "anti-momentum" going into Game 4. The teams that have lost the prior game are 4-0 so far in the Western Conference Finals.

I haven't done a thorough analysis, but most years when I've compiled the data the teams that lost the prior playoff game have a better record than the teams that win the prior game. I chalk it up to adjustments made by the team that lost the last game. Momentum carrying from one game to the next in the NHL playoffs is a myth.

Even up this series tonight.

 

LET'S GO DUCKS!

 

P.S.  Listen to RGS, but don't let Perry do it, if he gets within 10 feet of the goalie, they will call a penalty on him.  :noexpression:

I like the idea of having Boll do it.  Change his name to Bowl, and it will be perfect!

Getzlaf needs to stop about 5 feet in front of the net, he could have had two shots from there tonight on rebounds.
