Fiala learns how to play the hero

Fiala learns how to play the hero”

Personally, I don't know what's more surprising: that the Chicago Blackhawks are down 3-0 in a first-round series to the Nashville Predators or that they ended up this way after blowing a 2-0 lead in the third period in Game 3.

Nashville Predators will look to sweep Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks Thursday night at Bridgestone Arena.

Nashville Predators fans got a special surprise before their playoff game on Monday: Carrie Underwood!

If there is any similarity between then and now it's the Blackhawks' mantra, which is the one any team takes when it's down 3-0 in a series.

TORONTO - Tyler Bozak scored 1:37 into overtime to cap Toronto's comeback from two goals down in the second period, and the Maple Leafs beat the Washington Capitals 4-3 Monday night to take a 2-1 lead in the first-round series.

"I don't think there's going to be any doubts". The Predators won Games 4 and 6 versus San Jose in the second round a year ago. The redemption that Nashville fans needed came by way of Filip Forsberg, as he netted two goals tie it all up. Pekka Rinne has given up two goals on 95 shots faced.

However, the Blackhawks can not be underestimated by the Predators going into Game 4.

Patrick Kane made it 2-0 at 11:15 of the opening period, wiring a power-play wrister from the right faceoff circle past Rinne for his 50th career playoff goal and pumping his right fist Tiger Woods style.

Tillerson declares the Iran nuclear deal a failure
White House press secretary described the attention as a sign that Trump believes there are problems with the deal. Iran has defended its nuclear programme as purely civilian.

But the Blackhawks, winners of three Stanley Cup titles in the past seven years, now trail 0-3 for the first time since the 2011 quarterfinals. They were already trying to turn the page on Game 3.

Asked if he thought his veteran team was capable of digging it's way out of the hole, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville's answer conveyed the simple reality.

"It's not easy", Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews told reporters. It's not where you want to be as a hockey fan, but there's at least one more game to watch. Carrie said, "You learn how important that family time is, and to be able to spend time and carve out some of that and maybe get to go on vacation and maybe get to go on a cruise - that stuff is so important to, like I said, make time for family".

"We kind of sat back and they had way more chances than us in overtime", Kane said. Neal found Fiala positioned perfectly between four Chicago defenders, but Crawford was just able to get his pad on the puck.

The rally started innocently enough with a Viktor Arvidsson shot that went off of Crawford's shoulder, caroming off the glass and right to the feet of Forsberg, who pounded it in. Fiala received a flawless pass in the slot from winger James Neal.

"A lot of guys played great hockey tonight", Ellis said. "I'm just happy we won".

Wearing a personal #12 Fisher jersey with the captain's "C", the "American Idol" victor showed her support for the home team in an outfit that also included nail polish to match the Predators' colors.
