EDMONTON, Alberta — Jakob Silfverberg scored twice to lead the Anaheim Ducks to a 6-3 victory over Edmonton on Sunday night, cutting the Oilers’ series lead to 2-1.

Ryan Getzlaf had a goal and an assist, and Rickard Rakell, Chris Wagner and Ryan Kesler also scored for Anaheim, which lost the first two games at home. John Gibson stopped 24 shots.

Connor McDavid scored his first of the series for Edmonton. Patrick Maroon and Anton Slepychev also scored and Kris Russell had two assists. Cam Talbot finished with 22 saves.

Wagner scored the tiebreaking goal midway through the second period, firing a shot that deflected off Talbot’s arm and in.

Silfverberg knocked in a feed from Josh Manson at 4:56 of the third to make it 5-3. The Oilers challenged the play for offside, but the goal stood after a video review. Kesler swept in a rebound with 91/2 minutes left to cap the scoring.

Game 4 is Wednesday night.

PREDATORS 3, BLUES 1: Cody McLeod scored the winner early in the second period, and Nashville beat St. Louis in Nashville, Tennessee, to grab a 2-1 lead in their Western Conference semifinal series.

Defensemen Ryan Ellis and Roman Josi also scored, and Colton Sissons added two assists. The Predators outshot St. Louis 34-23, and they now have won seven straight playoff games on home ice, including all three this postseason.

Alexander Steen scored for the Blues, who lost for the first time on the road this postseason.

Blues goalie Jake Allen kept St. Louis in the game before being pulled by Coach Mike Yeo for an extra attacker with more than four minutes left.


Penguins: Coach Mike Sullivan didn’t have an update on forwards Patric Hornqvist and Tom Kuhnhackl, who left Game 2 against Washington. Hornqvist blocked a shot by John Carlson in the first period and never returned, leading to a reunion of a line with Sidney Crosby, Jake Guentzel and Conor Sheary.
