NHL playoffs 2017: Ducks snap Preds' home streak with 3-2 OT win, even West finals

For a brief moment, it looked like the Nashville Predators were going to cap perhaps their worst postseason performance to date Thursday night with a triumphant finish and push the Anaheim Ducks to the brink of elimination from the Western Conference finals.

After failing to capitalize on a late 5-on-3 advantage, Nashville sealed a comeback from a 2-0 deficit with a Filip Forsberg goal that knotted Game 4 with just over 30 seconds left in regulation, lit up a Bridgestone Arena crowd that, per NBCSN, set a new decibel record and epitomized the flash of the Preds’ wild playoff run.

In the end, however, it was all for naught.

Actually, Nashville fans could argue otherwise, especially since the Preds managed to threaten Anaheim on a mostly off night for the home team’s offensive attack.

But it was the Ducks who left Music City on Thursday night with the edge, pushing and pushing again to claim a 3-2 overtime win, snap Nashville’s double-digit home-ice win streak and even up the conference finals at 2-2.
