Leon Draisaitl can thrive for Edmonton Oilers in Anaheim against Ducks

Paajarvi out, Barbashev in as Blues look for 'physical element'

Heading into the series, we knew that Ducks coach Randy Carlyle would drape Selke Trophy finalist Kesler all over McDavid as much as possible and lo, he did. A split will keep them from being eliminated, but they've realistically got to take two games from Edmonton on the road.

Getzlaf (at 37 seconds) and Letestu (at 6:22) each scored a power-play goal in the second period.

As soon as Connor McDavid scored and the Ducks' three-goal lead slipped away, the Western Conference finals seemed a formality for an unnerving Oilers team that to this point had dominated most of their second-round playoff series.

After a four-goal third period in the series opener, the Oilers entered the rematch with plenty of the same energy.

Silfverberg delivered some insurance in the third with a one-time shot for his second of the night, with a review holding up the goal after Oilers coach Todd McLellan challenged that the winger was originally offside as the Ducks' Shea Theodore entered the zone with the puck. Subban's goal came just seconds after a scary incident, as Kevin Fiala crashed hard into the endboards and was taken off the ice on a stretcher.

Despite his team's apparent lack of big-game bona fides, the kid captain says his team is uniquely built for this moment. "We have come together as a team real well and that kind of carried over". I think we're playing better this series than we did against Calgary.

It might well have looked more believable, in fact, on Friday in Anaheim.

The Ducks plan to spend the two-day break between Games 3 and 4 in Kelowna, British Columbia. He now has one in two appearances as a visitor. Anaheim has never recovered from an 0-2 series deficit, losing all seven series after digging that early hole.

"We have to be better at that", Yeo said.

Perry once the elite scorer on Getzlaf's wing has struggled the last two years in the regular season to find the net, and those struggles have spilled out to the playoffs.

The Oilers return home after a pair wins in Anaheim leading the Western Conference Semifinals 2-0.

Worst period: St. Louis-Nashville - We have no problem with low scoring games, provided they have scoring chances - provided they have action.

A hunt is on to ascertain if any militant managed to sneak into the camp under the cover of darkness, official sources said. In the ensuing firefight, army lost a Captain, a JCO and a soldier while nine other troopers were injured.

Game 3 is Sunday in Edmonton. The Edmonton Oilers have won six straight games when allowing three or less goals. He crashed into the boards after making a rush down the right side.

Notes: Vatanen drew into Anaheim's lineup for the first time in the playoffs. Larsson then got to skate in on the retreating Ducks and fire in a shot off a setup from Draisaitl for an imposing two-goal advantage. There was little argument from the Oilers and a sheepish Letestu skated directed to the penalty box without objection. When that happens, Corey Perry only plays 14:38 and Rickard Rakell only plays 15:44.

"We had all the momentum, we just tied the game and a shot like that goes in", said a clearly frustrated Talbot. Tarasenko said he felt his team was too excited to go on the power play and thus overthinking their approach.

"Personally, I thought I had a pretty good game", Talbot said.

At 8:05 of the third, Evgeny Kuznetsov was on the receiving end of a great pass from Matt Niskanen with a wide-open net.
