Cam Talbot allowed six goals on 28 shots in a disappointing Game 3 performance on Sunday evening.

Having stolen the first two games on the road with stellar play, the Ducks got to Talbot early and often to pick up a 6-3 win. Talbot allowed five goals in Game 3 vs. San Jose last series and responded with four straight wins, and Oiler fans are hoping for a similar response. Talbot is 6-3 with a .915 save percentage and 2.48 goals against average.

Pekka Rinne turned aside 22 shots in a 3-1 win against St. Louis in Game 3 on Sunday afternoon.

Apr 30 - 6:27 PM

Jake Allen stopped 31 of 34 shots in a 3-1 loss to Nashville in Game 3 on Sunday afternoon.

He kept the Blues close after two periods, but Roman Josi scored a big insurance goal late in the third frame when St. Louis got caught in their own zone on a very long shift. Allen faced 18 shots in the middle stanza and his teammates mustered just four shots on target on Nashville's net.

Alexander Steen scored the lone goal for the Blues in a 3-1 loss to Nashville on Sunday afternoon.

He deflected a point shot by Alex Pietrangelo in the second period to cut Nashville's lead to 2-1, but that was as close as St. Louis would get. Vladimir Sobotka had the other assist on Steen's third goal of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Predators now hold a 2-1 lead in the second-round series.
Apr 30 - 6:08 PM

Conor Sheary moved back to the top line with Sidney Crosby and Jake Guentzel on Saturday night.

The change was made after Patric Hornqvist was injured. If Hornqvist can't play in Game 3 then Sheary could get his top-six forward spot back. He logged just 8:50 of ice time on Saturday night after he played 12:21 in Game 1 versus Washington. Sheary has contributed just two assists in seven playoff contests this year.

David Backes recorded 38 points in 2016-17, which is his lowest point total in a full season since 2007-08.

Backes hopes to get more responsibility next season and possibly return to playing center. "Do I think all the other options were explored? I don't," he said. "(Bruce Cassidy's) time was short, and what worked he went with, and what didn’t work he tried to change. ... Me at center with different guys or different combinations? I think there's always room for tinkering with it, just so we can have depth and roll three good lines or four good lines. That'll be up to next year, especially when you have a preseason you can try out some of those things. Maybe that'll be an opportunity to explore other options that we have." He spent most of his time under Cassidy on the wing with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand.
