How it happened: The Preds built a 2-0 lead with a pair of goals in the first period from Johansen and James Neal, though a shake-up in personnel helped spark the Ducks' comeback effort.
The Predators are the first National Hockey League team in 20 years to win 10 consecutive home playoff games. Nick Ritchie broke the tie with 2:53 left in the second, giving Anaheim the lead. The result? The pace quickened, the entries eased, Kase scored his first goal since February 22 and Ritchie netted the game-winning goal. For a fleeting moment two minutes into the game, the overhead scoreboards listed the Ducks as having 99 shots on goal instead of the one they actually had at that point. This must mean they took more accurate shots and/or the Ducks defense was allowing the Predators to take many shots on goal.
Anaheim erased an early two-goal deficit to avoid falling into a 2-0 series hole Sunday night, following a pattern that saw it storm back from three goals down against Calgary and Edmonton in the first two rounds of the playoffs.
"I don't think you can put it any other way: We need to emotionally get ourselves involved in the game right away", Cogliano said.
Anaheim's Ryan Kesler, who's always been one for getting under the skin of the opposition, may have took it to another level against Johansen on Sunday night.
Alaska Legislature opens special session

Subban for Weber looked like a long-term steal for the Predators as they got a younger, more mobile puck-moving defenseman in part because Montreal preferred a safer style of play.
"I thought they came out and grabbed some momentum right at the end of the first period and they came out and scored another quick goal and I think the momentum shifted a little bit", Laviolette said.
Just when the Ducks appeared to be in serious danger of losing two straight home games to start their second straight series, they made a thrilling surge of four goals in less than 19 minutes.
The overtime trend continued in the series opener between the Penguins and Senators.
Game 3 is Tuesday at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.
US officials criticize Turkey after attack on DC protesters
Earlier in the day, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said the Trump administration understood Turkey's position against the YPG. Fire and EMS spokesperson reported two of those who were hurt sustained serious injuries and were taken to hospitals.
"Like his family and his friends watching him play, I don't know how you cheer for a guy like that". As the physical play between the two exponentially increased in the second and third periods, it pushed Johansen over the edge. "They're not going to give you anything but we worked hard to get our chances and we've got to bury them when we get them". They won't be able to shut it down completely, but it's a necessity to match Anaheim's push with one of their own.
"There are a lot of things to like, but it's just one game", Boucher said. Now, the series moves to Nashville tied as the Predators lost just their third game in this postseason so far.
"We believe that we can go in any building and play with the teams that we're up against and give ourselves a chance for success", Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said.
A finalist for the Selke award given to the NHL's best defensive forward, Kesler said he won't be changing how he plays no matter what Johansen says because his goal is helping Anaheim win the series and advance to the Stanley Cup Final.
The Pittsburgh Penguins (2008) and Los Angeles Kings (2012-13) had nine-game streaks in recent years, but not since the Colorado Avalanche in 1996 and 1997 has a team gotten to double digits.
