Preds win from ousting Ducks to reach 1st Stanley Cup Final

"In my opinion, you can put [Forsberg] in the category of maybe two other guys, top three guys in terms of his skill and what he can do with the puck every night", Nashville defenseman P.K. Subban said. "Not only the goal but just the game in general that he played - I thought it was a really strong game".

The NHL announced the fine Saturday, shortly before Game 5 against the Nashville Predators.

Jonathan Bernier took over for Gibson and stopped 16 shots in his first appearance in almost two weeks for the Ducks, calling it a "weird situation". Getzlaf, the Ducks' leading scorer in the postseason, expressed a measure of remorse after the Ducks' 3-1 loss to the Nashville Predators.

With Fisher and Johansen pushed to the sidelines, Aberg got the promotion he deserved when he was moved onto a line with Forsberg, and he made sure Laviolette got rewarded for his decision.

Frederick Gaudreau, one of the centers pressed into service for Nashville, appeared in his first National Hockey League playoff game and his 10th career game.

Fisher had been without a point in the playoffs, but his absence was still significant, not only because of his leadership — he is the only player on the team to have played in the Stanley Cup final — but also because of the position he plays. The 23-year-old has yet to record a point in one regular-season game this season and two playoff contests. John Gibson stopped all 10 shots he faced for Anaheim, but had to leave the game with an injury and he is questionable to play today. "We don't have a choice but to win on Monday". The Predators are averaging 2.9 goals per game and are scoring on 18.9 percent of their power play opportunities.

Saturday's win gave Pekka Rinne his seventh career postseason win in 10 tries in Anaheim.

Cogliano pointed to their Game 7 win and said "we're 100% confident that we can come in and win this game". You cant find one of the four teams left standing that isnt missing a significant player or running out of ice at this time of year. He went 21-7-4 in the regular season and has appeared in three games this postseason. In his next shift, he scored the game-winning goal and never returned to play, as he was pulled by a concussion spotter.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Pontus Aberg spent most of the season in the minors, and he had a part-time depth role for the Nashville Predators in these Stanley Cup playoffs until injuries thrust him into a key role in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals. The Ducks lost high-scoring winger Rickard Rakell just before the start of the game with a lower-body injury and then Gibson after the first 20 minutes with a lower-body injury.

The Anaheim Ducks need a big road victory here in order to force a game seven on Wednesday. "We've been counting on everyone on this team, nearly 30 guys that have been playing this season". It's the most any visiting goalie has ever recorded against the Ducks.
