Adam Larsson scored his second goal of the third period with 4:40 to play, and the Edmonton Oilers blew a two-goal lead in a wild third period before beating the Anaheim Ducks 5-3 on Wednesday night in their second-round playoff series opener.
Edmonton leaves Anaheim with a commanding 2-0 series lead, thanks to a 2-1 victory, Friday night.
The Edmonton Oilers return home after stealing both games in Anaheim and the home crowd will be one of the loudest you'll see in the National Hockey League playoffs.
While Connor McDavid is getting most of the attention during the Oilers' impressive Stanley Cup playoff run, their hardworking goaltender is doing much of the hard work to keep them sailing forward. Talbot was stellar in Game 2 with 39 saves but the visitors got to him early, scoring on two of their first three shots. I've said that before and I'll definitely say it again: We're a very deep team and we have guys that can produce offence. "And I didn't make a lot of other saves during the game that I needed to".
Chris Wagner responded just 48 seconds later with a goal that Oilers goalie Cam Talbot would like to have back. "We have to make a couple of changes, personnel-wise, for the next game and look at the tape and see what we can do ... a little bit better than tonight because it wasn't good enough". "It's good going home with two wins".
Trump leaves door open for military action against North Korea
The statement, which came in response to CNN's questions about the latest launch, did not acknowledge Saturday's missile test. In a rare interview with CNN last week, a North Korean official said the country's nuclear tests would "never stop".
The Ducks seized control of the game early with Rickard Rakell scoring on a breakaway just 25 seconds in. "We learned a lot during the last series", said defenseman Adam Larsson, who scored two goals in Game 1, including the victor with 4:40 remaining in regulation.
Although the Ducks dominated long stretches of play in both contests, Talbot stopped 72 of 76 shots in the first two games in Anaheim. Getzlaf broke his stick on the faceoff, leaving the Ducks at a greater disadvantage before Letestu picked up his second goal of the post-season at 6:22. He posted consecutive shutouts in the first round against San Jose and almost picked up another versus the Ducks. "But now I think everyone in this room is so comfortable in these types of situations".
Letestu scored the second of his two power-play goals on a rebound off the right skate of lunging Ducks goalie John Gibson for a 2-1 lead.
The Anaheim Ducks need a victory here to have any realistic chance of winning this series after already trailing 0-2.
"We came out and executed properly, got rewarded", he said. "But the details will have to get a lot more polished up", said McLellan.

Just as he has faced shots throughout the course of the season, Oilers goalie Cam Talbot has faced questions about his extensive workload.
The six goals by Anaheim tied the franchise record for most in a playoff game (Apr. 30, 2015 vs. CGY). With the way he creates chemistry on the top line, Maroon is showing his worth, as well as showcasing the fact that he is a top-six player.
Game one didn't go so well for the Ducks. Ritchie was a last-minute scratch due to flu-like symptoms.
