The Anaheim Ducks lost to the Nashville Predators 4-3 in overtime but the one of the lone bright spots for Ducks fans this morning is Bobby Ryan's highlight reel goal dekeing through two defenders to get a clean breakaway on goaltender Pekka Rinne. Don't believe me? Check it out for yourself:
Ryan's goal will be replayed over and over and over again on a short night in the NHL with two games played. ESPN made it the number one play, NHL Network's NHL on the Fly probably played it five times within a half hour and it will get played on every season ending highlight reel.
The fact that the goal was pretty doesn't really alleviate the fact that the Ducks still lost to the Predators in overtime on home ice again and are now on the verge of elimination heading to Nashville for Game 6. The Predators are looking for their first playoff series win in the franchise's history with a Game 6 victory.
