Pontus Aberg's goal puts Predators past Ducks 3-1 in Game 5

In the battle of attrition that was Game 5 of the Western Conference finals, an unheralded and relatively unknown player made the play to place the Nashville Predators on the doorstep of the Stanley Cup finals.

Game... Set... Preds lead the series 3-2.

"That's my responsibility to understand that there are eyes and ears on us all the time", Getzlaf said. "We're not the most experienced team".

The Predators are 10-1 at Bridgestone Arena the past two postseasons, and another record crowd is expected for what will be the biggest sporting event in Nashville history not counting the fans watching just outside the building.

"I didn't think our compete level was where it needed to be", said Getzlaf.

"We're all excited. It's so much fun".

The Predators fly home today, they will arrive at 3:30 in their normal Signature Air location... A themes i noticed when they have less shots on goal they win.

The Predators will need all the support they can receive. The Predators will have an opportunity to clinch their first Stanley Cup finals berth.

Of course, so are the Ducks.

The coach only confirmed that Johansen was hurt during Game 4, but played through the injury and finished the game.

NOTES: Nashville scratched C Ryan Johansen, C Mike Fisher, D Anthony Bittetto, RW P.A. Parenteau, C Craig Smith, D Brad Hunt, LW Harry Zolnierczyk, G Marek Mazanec and LW Vladislav Kamenev.

"I'll tell you something, I've seen rough hockey and everything, but I've never seen anything - this is the roughest, toughest, most vicious game I think I've ever seen in the playoffs", Cherry said of Game 5 between Nashville and Anaheim Sunday afternoon during Coach's Corner.

"He's been dialed in all playoffs", Laviolette said of Rinne. "He had a really good go here in the playoffs especially, and we were definitely going to miss him".

"Guys know what's at stake". Although he did not get an assist on Colin Wilson's game-tying power-play goal in Game 5, he figured into it in a different way. Nashville and Anaheim split the series' first four games. "And we find ourselves back here in a situation where we can, we've gotta do it again". The Predators goalie has had a Conn Smyth-worthy post-season, with an nearly unfair 1.62 goals-against average and.942 save percentage.

"This series especially, every game has told a different story", Pittsburgh forward Carl Hagelin said. "Whether that's traffic in front, or stopping right in front of him when he makes a save, we try and play hard, but we try and play fair, too".

In between all the hits, the slashes and the post-whistle scrums, the teams found time to score a couple of goals. And he keeps it tight back there. It's been huge for us.

The Capitals, still taking losses even when they're out of the playoffs. But regardless of who is in Anaheim's line-up, the Predators are not expecting the Ducks to surrender easily.

Gibson has started in 15 games so far this postseason, with nine wins and a.917 save percentage.

"Getzlaf's comment in Thursday's game, particularly as directed to another individual on the ice, was inappropriately demeaning and disrespectful and crossed the line into behaviour that we deem unacceptable".

NASVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Nashville Predators don't have their top center, and their captain is day to day with an upper-body injury.

Game 5 of the Western Conference final was a poor showing for the host Ducks but it turned ugly with just under 10 seconds remaining in the game. He's a veteran guy. So that gives us a lot of confidence in his abilities.

The Predators had to kill penalties right off the bat, two in the first ten minutes of the period, but their PKJ was very solid and the teams went into the room after the first with a clean scoreboard. Goaltender Matt Murray turning aside 24 shots in his first start since April 6.
