NHL Playoffs 2017: Corey Perry scores overtime victor in Game 4

Subban stuck out his stick trying to poke-check the puck away only to re-direct it past goalie Pekka Rinne. The Predators' home playoff winning streak is the longest in the National Hockey League since Detroit won 10 straight in 1997-98.

The 5-3 final in Game 2 is looking like an aberration in which neither goaltender was at their best; goals are going to be hard to come by in this series regardless of which team is controlling the tempo.

The Predators had fought their way back and forced overtime after trailing 2-0 thanks to goals from Subban and Filip Forsberg.

Rickard Rakell opened the scoring at 11:20 in the first period, and the Ducks outshot the Predators 14-2 in that period. Game 5 is Saturday at Anaheim (6:15 p.m., NBC). "They were confident", Predators head coach Peter Laviolette said afterward.

And if you're one of those fans who looks for reasons why their favourite team is losing, please know that Kelly Clarkson's unbelievable anthem before the game is not the reason why Nashville lost. The Predators looked exhausted, flat and out of sync, especially in the first period when the Ducks set a franchise record for fewest shots allowed in the playoffs. It's not something you can plan for, but the Predators need to get out of this one unscathed to maintain their depth.

"I don't think we've had the emotional level we've had previously in the game the other night", Carlyle had said.

"You have to be smart about how you do it", said winger Andrew Cogliano.

Perry's score came from just below the Nashville goal line, rifling a shot off Rinne's skate and into the net.

The Nashville Predators wouldn't have made it to overtime in Game 4 of the Western Conference final without P.K. Subban, but the superstar defenseman still caught an unlucky break in OT. Also among the top 20 are three teams from the Montreal Canadiens' 1970s run and three from the New York Islanders' 1980s stretch when each dynasty captured four Stanley Cup titles in a row before passing the torch to Edmonton.

She may not, however, be a lucky charm for the Preds, who lost to the Anaheim Ducks in overtime.

It's a big night in Smashville! He has been so good that he may even get Conn Smythe consideration if, dare I say, the Predators venture any further.

Canada edged Germany 2-1 to set up a semifinal showdown with Russian Federation, which defeated the Czech Republic 3-0. "So just a super aggressive team and especially with the crowd in their back, it's tough sometimes, tough to generate any offense". I know they struggled a little bit in the post-season prior to our series, but they are a terrific penalty killing team.

The Ducks have now reclaimed home-ice advantage and should be considered a favorite to make the Stanley Cup Final.
