Ducks dominate first period, only Rakell’s rocket beats Predators’ Rinne

Do you think Randy Carlyle still has an issue with the shot counters in Nashville?

The first period of Game 4 of the Western Conference Final flipped the script of Game 3, as the Anaheim Ducks absolutely dominated the Predators. The shot differential was a whopping 14-2.

(You know, assuming everyone was wearing glasses.)

The bright side for the Predators was that they’re entering the first intermission only trailing 1-0, as Rickard Rakell‘s blazing shot was the only attempt that beat Pekka Rinne. Watch that howling effort in the video above.

Game 4 is airing on NBCSN. You can watch online and via the NBC Sports App. Click here for the livestream.
