He had a helper on Anaheim's only goal in a 2-1 loss to Nashville in Game 3 of the Western Conference Final on Tuesday night. Rakell has six goals and 12 points in 14 games this postseason. Still, he hasn't scored a goal in four straight outings.

Rickard Rakell scored the Ducks' only goal in Game 6, a 7-1 loss to Edmonton on Sunday night.

Rakell's goal came when Anaheim trailed 6-0 in what was a thoroughly miserable experience for the Anaheim Ducks in their return to Alberta. Rakell did, however, increase his goal-scoring streak to four games and has six tallies and 10 points in as many post-season games.
May 7 - 10:28 PM

Rickard Rakell has found the back of the net in each of Anaheim's last three games.

Rakell's latest goal was both dramatic and controversial. He scored with just 15 seconds left in the third period to tie what would eventually become a 4-3 2OT victory against Edmonton. There's an argument to be made though that Ryan Kesler should have been called on goaltender interference though for appearing to hold Talbot's pad open to allow the goal. The league ruled that it was a good goal because they felt Edmonton's Darnell Nurse pushed Kesler into Talbot. "I didn’t really think they could take it back from us the way we battled," Rakell said. "The way we made every effort to get back into that game there just wasn’t any doubt. It felt like, ‘They can’t do this to us.’ When I saw the replay, I thought we didn’t get into the goalie’s face on purpose."
May 6 - 4:34 AM

Rickard Rakell scored a goal in Anaheim's 4-3 overtime win against Edmonton in Game 4 on Wednesday.

Rakell also found the back of the net in Game 3. He's up to four goals and seven points in eight playoff games. He also has a 19 shooting percentage in the postseason, which is roughly level with his conversion rate during the regular season when he scored a career-high 33 goals.
May 4 - 10:20 AM

Rickard Rakell found the back of the net in Anaheim's 6-3 victory over Edmonton in Game 3 on Sunday.

Rakell has been great in the Ducks' playoff run with three goals and six points in seven games. His success in the postseason is an extension of th regular season he had as he finished the 2016-17 campaign with 33 goals and 51 points in 71 contests.
May 1 - 9:23 AM

Rickard Rakell recorded at least one point in every contest of Anaheim's four-game sweep over Calgary in the first round.

Rakell registered an assist in Game 4 Wednesday night. He finished the first round with two goals and five points in the playoffs.
Apr 20 - 9:37 AM

Rickard Rakell is riding a five-game point streak that dates back to the regular season.

Rakell registered two assists in Anaheim's 5-4 overtime win against Calgary in Game 3 on Monday. He's up to four points so far in the playoffs, which puts him in a three-way tie for second place among the Ducks.

Rickard Rakell scored for the second straight playoff game on Saturday.

Rakell potted 33 goals during the regular season so this outburst is no surprise as he is the top sniper on the Ducks. He scored his 33 this season in only 71 games as he started the season as an RFA and was forced to miss the first nine games of the campaign to get into game shape. He is a keeper.

Rickard Rakell found the back of the net in Anaheim's 3-2 win over Calgary Thursday night.

Rakell broke out in 2016-17 with 33 goals in 71 games, so naturally the Ducks are looking for him to continue contributing like that in the playoffs. It's still very early in the postseason, but at least we can say that he's gotten off to a good start.
Apr 14 - 9:44 AM

The Ducks will be looking for Rickard Rakell to be a major contributor in the first round.

Rakell broke out this season with 33 goals and 51 points in 71 games. Even if he hadn't taken such a big step forward though, he would likely be a bigger contributor in this series than he was in the 2016 first round. A year ago he entered the playoffs after having just come back from an appendectomy, which made him significantly below 100%. "It wasn’t great," Rakell said of his state for the 2016 playoffs. "I was down 15 pounds or something like that. Just wasn’t as near or close to what I am today. Can’t even compare. No practice or anything. I’m all past that right now. All the problems I had, I’m past it."
