The Ducks and Preds will engage in the second Game 7 of these Stanley Cup playoffs tonight — it’s the first Game 7 in Nashville franchise history — and the NHL has put two of its most veteran referees on assignment.

Dan O’Halloran and Kelly Sutherland will be on the call, along with linesmen Brian “Dropkick” Murphy and Derek “Give ’em Hell” Amell.

Per Scouting the Refs, this marks the first time O’Halloran and Sutherland have worked together this postseason, though both have experience with this Ducks-Preds series (O’Halloran worked Game 1, Sutherland Game 4).

Of the two, O’Halloran’s had the more eventful postseason — most notably, he was part of the crew (along with Ian Walsh) that called a penalty shot for the Panthers in overtime of Game 5 of their series against the Isles.
