NHL Morning Skate for Saturday, May 6, 2017: Stanley Cup Playoffs edition

FRIDAY’S RESULTS
Home Team in Caps
ST. LOUIS 2, Nashville 1 – NSH leads 3-2
ANAHEIM 4, Edmonton 3 (2OT) – ANA leads 3-2

DUCKS MOUNT HISTORIC COMEBACK OVER OILERS TO TAKE 3-2 SERIES LEAD
With the Oilers leading 3-0, the Ducks scored three times in the final 3:16 of the third period – including the tying goal by Rickard Rakell (1-1—2) with 15 seconds remaining in regulation – before Corey Perry (1-2—3) completed the comeback at 6:57 of double-overtime to help Anaheim take a 3-2 series lead.

* Elias notes that the Ducks became the second team in Stanley Cup Playoffs history to overcome a three-goal deficit in the final four minutes of regulation to force overtime – the Oilers mounted the only other such rally en route to a 4-3 overtime victory in Game 3 of the 1997 Conference Quarterfinals vs. DAL.

* The Ducks overcame a three-goal deficit to win for the second time in franchise history, with both instances occurring this postseason (also Game 3 of FR at CGY). Friday also marked the third time this postseason (and second straight game) that Anaheim erased a multi-goal deficit to win – they trailed 2-0 en route to a 4-3 overtime victory in Game 4 at EDM.

* Elias notes that the Ducks became the 13th team in NHL history to win consecutive playoff games in which they trailed by multiple goals and first since the Kings achieved the feat in three consecutive games during the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs (Game 7 of CF at CHI, Games 1-2 of F vs. NYR).

* Overall, 23 of 60 games this postseason (38.3%) have seen the winning team overcome a deficit of at least one goal, including 12 that erased a multi-goal deficit to win. There have been five instances this postseason in which the winning team trailed by multiple goals in the third period.

* Perry, who has spent his entire career with the Ducks, scored his third overtime goal in the postseason to take sole possession of first place in franchise history. His seven career playoff game-winning goals rank second on the club’s all-time list behind Teemu Selanne (8).

* Elias notes that Rakell scored the latest game-tying goal in franchise playoff history. In Game 3, Rakell scored 25 seconds into the contest to set a club record for fastest goal to begin a playoff game.

DOWN TO THE WIRE
Friday marked the ninth time in the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs that a team scored a tying goal in the final five minutes of regulation. The Oilers and Ducks have each scored two such goals:

Game-Tying Goals in Final Five Minutes of Regulation, 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs
19:45 – Anaheim’s Rickard Rakell on May 5 (4-3 2OT W)
19:42 – Montreal’s Tomas Plekanec on April 14 (4-3 OT W)
19:37 – Minnesota’s Zach Parise on April 12 (2-1 OT L)
18:58 – Ottawa’s Jean-Gabriel Pageau on April 29 (6-5 2 OT W)
18:55 – Pittsburgh’s Justin Schultz on May 1 (3-2 OT L)
18:18 – Edmonton’s Drake Caggiula on May 4 (4-3 OT L)
17:14 – Edmonton’s Oscar Klefbom on April 20 (4-3 OT W)
15:39 – Anaheim’s Shea Theodore on April 17 (5-4 OT W)
15:11 – Columbus’s Brandon Dubinsky on April 16 (5-4 OT L)

* Elias notes that the record for most tying goals in the final five minutes of regulation during a single postseason is 13, established during the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs (86 GP).

* Overall, 40 of 60 games this postseason (66.7%) have been decided by one goal, including 22 overtime contests – tied for the sixth-most overtime games in a single postseason in NHL history.

SCHWARTZ, ALLEN HELP BLUES STAVE OFF ELIMINATION
Jaden Schwartz scored the go-ahead goal 25 seconds into the third period and Jake Allen made 21 saves to help the Blues stave off elimination and force Game 6 against the Predators.

* Schwartz, who leads the Blues with 4-4—8 in 10 games this postseason, scored his third game-winning goal of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs to match the franchise record for most in a single postseason, equaling a mark achieved by Brett Hull (1988 and 1990), Scott Young (2001) and David Backes (2016).

* Playing in his first game of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs, Dmitrij Jaskin opened the scoring for the Blues – his first goal since Dec. 3 at WPG when he tallied his only marker of the 2016-17 regular season (51 GP). Jaskin also registered a game-high eight shots on goal, tied for the second-most by any player this postseason.

* Elias notes that 11 of 18 games in the Second Round of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs (61.1%) have featured a game-winning goal scored in either the third period (7) or overtime (4).
