Nashville Predators' Mattias Ekholm (14) collides with Anaheim Ducks' Ondrej Kase (86) as they battle for the puck by the goal during the first period of Game 2 of the Western Conference final in the NHL hockey Stanley Cup pla.
Ryan Johansen and James Neal scored for the Predators in the first-period.
Predators coach Peter Laviolette lamented his team allowing two goals within 1:39 near the end of the first and the start of the second period. Filip Forsberg tied the game with a deflection goal at 12:34 of the first, as Nashville heavily controlled the opening period.
Silfverberg, who scored a career-best 23 goals and 49 points in the regular season, credited his recent success to puck luck. Shots that didnt go in earlier in the year are now finding the back of the net, as was the case in Game 1 when a fluttering wrist shot somehow snuck over Pekka Rinnes glove hand for a goal.
This was a true must-win for the Ducks heading on the road for Game 3 in Nashville.
NOTES: The Ducks kept veteran Jared Boll in their lineup over several young prospects to replace injured F Patrick Eaves, who missed his sixth straight game.
So who exactly is going to provide the offence needed for the Ducks if they're going to hit the scoresheet in Nashville?
"We haven't scored many goals on the powerplay so far, but let's hope the ketchup bottle is open now and we can keep scoring", said Finland's Vatanen. "But again it's all about trying to get better than we were in the last game". The wait often becomes even longer for power forwards, whose bodies sometimes need time to mature to play an effective physical game against men in the National Hockey League.

It's not easy winning games when your power play isn't manufacturing points or even pressure.
"I don't think you can put it any other way: We need to emotionally get ourselves involved in the game right away", Cogliano said. The goal ended an 0-20 power play drought for the Ducks.
On the stat sheet, Ryan Johansen had little reason to be frustrated after his performance in Sunday's Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals, in which he logged two points against John Gibson and the Anaheim Ducks.
Ducks - D Kevin Bieksa (Questionable, lower body), RW Logan Shaw (Questionable, lower body), RW Patrick Eaves (Out Indefinitely, lower body), D Simon Despres (Out Indefinitely, concussion). I'm not going to change my game. Anaheim and Nashville are meeting in the postseason for the third time, including the past two seasons.
For long stretches, it felt like the game could have been played in mid-December instead of mid-May, which was just fine by Ottawa. It's just a matter of how the Predators will respond, seeing as this series could get ugly on both the ice and scoreboard if they do so in the wrong fashion.
The Penguins didn't lack for opportunities to jump on the Senators but four first-period power plays - including 45 seconds of a 5-on-3 - went nowhere. "We understand that if you take your foot off the gas, you probably won't like the result".
"There were some good looks there", said Crosby, who had just two shots in 23:32 of ice time. While Neal scored the victor, he was only open to score on P.K. Subban's pass because the defenseman froze the entire Anaheim defense with a picture-perfect shot fake.
