by Staff Writer / Anaheim Ducks

Nashville 3 vs. Anaheim 1
Apr. 25, 2016
Bridgestone Arena
Series tied, 2-2

Corey Perry

On his scoring chance late in the third period
Those are the ones I need to bear down on. I was all alone. [Despres] made a great play to find me. I rushed the shot more than anything. Those things just aren’t going in right now.

On remaining scoreless in the series
You can make all the excuses you want. I’m here to do what I do, and that’s the biggest one of them. I put a lot of pressure on myself. Those are ones I want back.

On returning home for a Game 7
That’s why you play all year. You want to play for that home ice, and that’s what we did. We’ve been solid at home, but anything can happen. If we do a lot of things that we did in Games 3, 4 and 5, we’ll be all right. We had a few breakdowns tonight, and they cost us.

Ryan Getzlaf
On having a Game 7 at home
I think on a positive note, we started two in the hole in our building. If we would’ve said we would’ve had a Game 7 after that, we would’ve been happy with that. We’ve got to look at it that way and come ready to play.

On the Predators
It is what it is. They’re fighting for their lives and we knew that we were going to get their best. They got one more than we did tonight, well, two with the empty netter. They did some things we expected. They played hard. They had guys blocking shots, and [Pekka Rinne] played good. I didn’t think we did a good enough job getting to Pekka. He saw too many pucks and we weren’t there for enough rebounds.

Head Coach Bruce Boudreau
On returning home for Game 7
I’m just thinking of it as a new day and new game. It’s a new team. Every year is different. We’re looking forward to the game.

On the third period
I thought we were pushing the whole time. We had some great looks and chances in the third period. With any luck, we could’ve scored a goal. We kept going at them. They played well. They defended really well tonight.
