Forsberg tied the game at one with his goal at the 3:54 mark of the third period.
Nashville Predators' Matt Irwin (52) collides with Anaheim Ducks' Chris Wagner (21) as they battle for the puck during the second period of Game 2 of the Western Conference final in the NHL hockey Stanley Cup playoffs, Sunday, . With fundamentally sound defensive play and plenty of offensive flash, Subban, Roman Josi, Ryan Ellis and Mattias Ekholm are a big reason why the Predators are in position to take early control of their franchise's first conference finals with a second road victory.
Johnny Gaudreau finished with two goals in Cologne, Germeny, to take his tournament total to six, and an assist, while Jimmy Howard made 19 saves on his fourth start for the Americans, whose confidence seems to be growing as they stretched their winning run to five games.
The Ducks finally awakened at the prospect of their second straight 0-2 series deficit and replied with high-octane hockey - and a few fortunate bounces - that was too much even for Rinne, who hadn't given up four goals in a game since March 13. The Anaheim Ducks have allowed three or less goals in seven of their last eight games. Anaheim's Antoine Vermette added an empty-netter with 43.6 seconds left, and Cam Fowler had two assists.
"He just blows my mind", said Johansen to media members after Game 2. He led the tournament with a.955 save percentage in seven games, surrendering just five even-strength goals in that time.
Heading into the third period, the Nashville Predators had yet to find a way to beat Anaheim Ducks goalie John Gibson after 28 shots. "It just doesn't make sense how he plays the game", he told the media. His family and friends watching him play, I don't know how you can cheer for a guy like that.
The Ducks see the problem as largely mental, and they intend to address it in the hours before the series resumes.

A United Airlines jet was getting ready to take off for San Francisco last night when flames sparked in one of the engines. A passenger aboard that flight said they were waiting on the tarmac when the pilot announced they had to evacuate.
"We know how important these games are", Carlyle said, "and every one gets more important as we go forward". He bounced back with a far better effort in Game 3, but there were still some close calls, like when the Ducks cleared the puck the length of the ice and it almost skipped over Rinnes pads at the last moment.
From autumn to spring, both home and away, slow starts have been a regular theme over the past two seasons for the Ducks, who have relied to an extraordinary degree on their veteran ability to rally when it really matters. "But with that being said, I think we did a pretty good job in the neutral zone".
"He's a guy that you love to have on your team and you hate to play against", Manson said. I think they will continue to look like the better team now that they are at home.
It may be the Ducks and Predators in the Western Conference Final, but after only two games, all anyone wants to talk about is the budding rivalry of Ryan Johansen and Ryan Kesler. "Tonight we didn't deal with the puck properly, which enabled them to work their forecheck and scramble us around a little". Anaheim and Nashville are meeting in the postseason for the third time, including the past two seasons.
Predators forward Viktor Arvidsson apparently eclipsed Gibson with one of the NHL's all-time most comprehensive screens, Gibson looking and leaning to his left as Neal flipped the puck into the sudden open space to his right.
