Game 6 - First Period

Sunday, 04.24.2011 / 5:18 PM

Thoughts and views from the first period at Bridgestone Arena...

 - The atmosphere is ELECTRIC. I can't remember the last time I've heard an arena this loud for pre-game warm-ups before. Click here for a view from warmups

 - Both teams are competing for every inch of ice out there. Forwards, defensemen, goaltenders on both teams are competing hard.

 - Quick, up-tempo pace to the start of the game.

 - Anaheim with the first quality scoring chance of the game; a two-on-one by Perry and Fowler less than 30 seconds into the game. The Ducks have been able to create a quality odd-man rush off the first or second shift every game of the series.

 - Selanne continues to impress, scoring the game's opening goal; an innocent looking play coming around behind the net and flipping a shot inside the near post.

 - Huge goal by Nick Spaling with under 30 seconds remaining in the first period. Under-rated play by Ryan Suter on the goal -- even though he didn't get an assist on the play, his forecheck created the turnover by Cam Fowler; Tootoo quick to the loose puck, relayed a pass to Spaling to tie the score.

 - Fisher-Hornqvist-Kostitsyn have been good in the first period. Fisher created Nashville's first sscoring chance with a steal behind the Anaheim net on their second shift. After the Ducks scored, that line again created quality chances in front of Emery.

 - Nashville with the first power-play of the game, an unforced holding call on Dan Sexton on the forecheck deep in the Nashville end. The Preds generated two decent scoring chances early in the power-play but were unable to convert.
