The offensive outburst helped bail out goalie John Gibson

Jakob Silfverberg scored his ninth goal of the playoffs 39 seconds into the second period, erasing the 2-0 lead Nashville had built early in the first period. Filip Forsberg took it back seven minutes later, but Anaheim broke through thanks to a goal by Ondrej Kase and another from Nick Ritchie to take a 4-3 lead into the third period.

Antoine Vermette’s empty netter, his first goal of the playoffs, gave the Ducks their third game of five or more goals in the playoffs.

What’s more, Anaheim solved its woes on the man advantage when Sami Vatanen scored on the power play in the first period. The power-play unit had gone without a goal in its last 21 opportunities, an ominous drought for a Stanley Cup semifinalist.

The offensive outburst helped bail out goalie John Gibson, whose inconsistency streak reared its ugly head when the Predators scored three goals on their first 13 shots. But Gibson buckled down in the second and third periods.

The Caps’ goal explosion came courtesy of stars like T.J. Oshie, Nicklas Backstrom and Evgeny Kuznetsov, who had been criticized at times for playing short of their typically high standards. All combined for multi-point efforts and Andre Burakovsky chipped in a pair of goals to send the series back to the nation’s capital.

Of course, merely making it to a Game 7 won’t be good enough for the Capitals. The Presidents’ Trophy winners need to win it if they’re to put to rest the playoff choker label that’s consumed the franchise.

A win Wednesday and Washington would become the first team since 2010 to erase a 3-1 series deficit and advance.

The Penguins have won all three of their previous Game 7 meetings against the Caps, including in 2009, when they rode that victory to a Stanley Cup.

Top Cuban prospect Luis Robert signs with White Sox, reports say

Under the new Collective Bargaining Agreement in MLB no player under the age of 25 will be allowed to be signed to a deal of more than $5.75 million effective after this season. And with Robert being the consensus top prospect out of Cuba this year, no other player is expected to get more than he does.

Gone are the days of the Rusney Castillo’s and even the Jorge Soler’s contract. Now teams will have a level playing field rather than the richest teams going after those big name Cuban players.

Fighting attendance issues, the Diamondbacks are offering a ticket package that will get a fan into every home game in June and July for a total of $50. The team has 25 games scheduled at Chase Field for those two months, meaning each ticket costs $2 under the plan, dubbed Ballpark Summer Pass.

This is a chance to attract new fans, younger fans who are home from college, and fans who aren’t of the traditional mindset of attending 81 home games as a season-ticket holder, Diamondbacks president and CEO Derrick Hall told the Arizona Republic. We’re going to give it a shot and see what happens.

One person can purchase up to four of the $50 packages. Tickets cannot be shared or resold, and fans will find out the location of their seats two hours before each game via MLB’s Ballpark app, which they must download if they buy the package.
