Latest News From Adam
Gibson answered the doubters yet again in Game 3. Apart from a tough start in Game 2, he has been simply amazing and it's only thanks to the lack of some extra effort from his teammates that he hasn't stolen either one of Games 1 or 3.
Perry scored his first point in the series on his birthday, but ultimately it wasn't enough to come out victorious. He banked in a shot off of a slightly cheating Pekka Rinne on the powerplay.
Vatanen initiated the play late in the second period that saw Corey Perry score for the Ducks to take the lead.
Rakell dangled and deked with the puck, entered the zone and dished it sideways to Corey Perry, whos scored from a tough angle.
Neither Fleury, nor Anderson was willing to give up a goal until late into the third period and none of them wanted to be the goat in a sudden death situation. That somewhat turned out to be Anderson as Kessel's quick second attempt beat him low before he could get set, with barely 7 minutes left to play in the game. Pittsburgh secured the shutout for Fleaury after.
Maatta gave the puck to Evgeni Malkin in his own zone and then watched history being made.
With seven minutes remaining in the game Kessel received the puck in stride from center Evgeni Malkin, took his shot that was blocked by J-G Pageau but fell right back to him and his second attempt found the way next to the mammoth of a still re-setting Craig Anderson. Pittsburgh managed to protect it's narrow lead and the goal became the game-winner.
Malkin slowly moved up the ice along the boards but in a scoreless tie late in the third period, his presence was enough to draw two defenders. Right upon carrying the puck over the blueline he sent it to a streaking Phil Kessel down the middle, who scored after collecting his own rebound from a block.
Gibson had a real shaky start and at times seemed to be bothered or injured, because he was slow with his movement and off with his positioning. However, he collected himself and after he was badly beaten with a wraparound by Viktor Arvidsson, he came up with some real quality saves and shut it down for the remainder of the game. Gibson has the best SV% when his team is holding a lead.
Ritchie the big boy came up huge again, as another of his hard shots went through the opposition goalie at the perfect time and ended up being the game-winning goal. He realeased the puck from along the right boards after some nifty passing on the rush by Montour and Getzlaf.
Theodore got back onto the scoreboard after personally being shut out the last five games. His shot went through a humanity of people but ended up being saved and deflected, right onto the tape of teammate Ondrej Kase, who squeezed it in, just barely over the goal line to tie the game at 3.
Montour initiated a quick rush up ice, his outlet pass was ever so gently tipped by Ryan Getzlaf and Nick Ritchie shot bullseye right after.
