The Oilers are hoping to withhold that advantage by taking a recreation at Rogers Area. To do that, the team will look to get the crowd loud as early as po sible tonight as opposed to Recreation 3 when Rickard Rakell's breakaway marker just 25 seconds in spawned silence from the Oilers faithful."Our fans are great for us, they react when our play is good," said Oilers defenceman Darnell Nurse. "Our mindset tonight is to come out and Jesse Puljujarvi Jersey have a good bounce-back sport even though the fans will be there supporting. The crowd always seems to bring a special atmosphere."On the other side of the ice, the Ducks are aware of the effect their quick-strike offence gave them in Recreation three but know Oil Country is ince santly rambunctious."I don't think it makes it difficult, I think that you learn to appreciate the pa sion that's in the markets," said Ducks Head Mentor Randy Carlyle. "I'm not immune from the crazine s of playoff markets in playoff time."RECOVER AND RECUPERATE The Oilers are considered a rebound team. The squad is 16-14-4 when coming off a lo s of any kind and 11-5-2 a recreation after losing by two goals or more this season."Anytime we've had a tough recreation, we've always been able to find a way to bounce again," said Oilers forward Drake Caggiula. "I think that's that young competitive edge in us, we just want to go out there and prove that's not who we are and I think we are going to have a much better push today."Cam Talbot has been the backbone of the bounce-back with his .919 save percentage, 1.88 goals-against average and 5-0-0 record the next outing after allowing five or more goals against."I think it's just short-term memory," said Talbot. "It helps when we get a day off and kind of reset. Spend a working day with the kids and just get away from it."Talbot is 6-3 these playoffs with a .918 save percentage and 2.47 goals-against average."When you look at our team, we are a relatively young team but Cam is a mature goaltender," said Oilers Head Coach Todd McLellan. "He's got a real good level of emotional control. He doesn't get too high or too low and I think one of the big things for him is he accepts responsibility for his performances."POWERING UP THE POWER PLAYIt's hard to believe given they are converting at a 25 percent clip within the power play in Round 2 but there is a sense around the Oilers that they can score more timely goals within the man advantage.McLellan believes the shortcomings stem from a combination of the team not gaining clean zone entries as well as Ducks stifling aspects of their setup. The Oilers need to be "cleaner" overall, said McLellan."They (Anaheim) present some different challenges than San Jose did," said centre Mark Letestu. "Like any penalty kill, they have their own identity that they play to and they took it up another level last game. We weren't able to match it."The Oilers finished fifth in the regular season to the man advantage with a power play that clicked at 22.9 percent. In the post-season, that number has dropped to 17.9 percent, although the chances are still apparent."We're still confident in the group we have," continued Letestu. "It was a top-five power play all year, we don't feel that there's any philosophical changes or system changes to make; we're going to break through."LINEUP NOTESBased on Tuesday's practice, the Oilers have seemed to return to the same forward lines they had previously. That likely means Patrick Maroon is back again with Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid, while Jordan Eberle, Milan Lucic and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins have returned as a unit.As for the Ducks, Carlyle disclosed that Patrick Eaves is doubtful to play in Game 4 due to a lower-body injury. Kevin Bieksa will also be out of the lineup again.Here is the Oilers projected lineup:Maroon - McDavid - DraisaitlLucic - Nugent-Hopkins - EberleCaggiula - Letestu - Ka sianPouliot - Desharnais - SlepyshevKlefbom - Lar sonSekera - Ru sellNurse - BenningTalbotBro soit-- Paul Gazzola, edmontonoilers.comPREVIEWOILERS (6-3) at DUCKS (5-2)Tv: 8:00 p.m. MDT; Televised on SportsnetSunday night was certainly a tough lo s for the team with Anaheim getting off to a fast start with a 3-0 first-period lead and despite the Oilers rallying to tie things up thy ultimately lost 6-3.But the real important thing for the Oilers and their fans to remember is that Edmonton is still in the driver's seat in this series. The Oilers have home-ice advantage with a 2-1 collection and have a chance to turn that into a commanding 3-1 edge with a win tonight.OILERS KEYS TO SUCCESS:TALBOT'S BOUNCE Back:Oilers goaltender Cam Talbot has been good all season long bouncing back again following online games where he allows four or more goals. Oilers will need him to be sharp tonight.BALANCED ATTACK:Edmonton is at its most effective when they have all four lines and three defence pairings rolling.QUICK START:The Oilers would benefit from a quick start after Sunday's goal by the Ducks 25 seconds in took the Rogers Location crowd out of the sport for the majority of the opening period.ROSTER UPDATES:Edmonton: Tyler Pitlick is out for the season with a lower-body injury.Anaheim:Kevin Bieksa is out for Match four while Patrick Eaves is doubtful.FAST FACTS:When Talbot allows five or more goals in a video game, he's perfect in his next outing with a 5-0-0 record this season and a 1.88 goals-against average and .919 save percentage.In game titles immediately after allowing 5+ goals in a recreation, the Oilers had a 5-2-1 record during the regular season. Prior to April 30, the Oilers had only allowed 5+ goals in one playoff sport this year, a 7-0 lo s to San Jose, which they followed up with a 4-3 overtime win.In 2016, the Ducks lost the first two video games of their collection with Nashville at home before rallying to win Sport three, four and 5. However, they then lost Match 6 and 7 to drop the collection. In 2014, the same thing happened in their sequence with the Kings so these Ducks are quite familiar with this situation.QUOTABLE:"I think it's just short-term memory. Just letting it go and focusing over the next a person. It helps when we get a day off and kind of reset. Spend a working day with the kids and just get away from it. Then right now, come in, have a good practice and get ready for tomorrow. I think that helped too." -- Oilers goaltender Cam Talbot on his ability to bounce again from big lo ses.HEAD- TO-HEAD:Oilers lead best-of-seven collection 2-1Apr 26: Edmonton5 at Anaheim 3Apr 28: Edmonton2 at Anaheim 1Apr 30: Anaheim 6 at Edmonton 3May 3: Anaheim at Edmonton - 8:00 p.m. MDTMay 5: Edmonton at Anaheim - 8:30 p.m. MDTMay 7: Anaheim at Edmonton - TBDMay 10: Edmonton at Anaheim - TBDEdmonton won the season collection this year 3-2-0Nov 15: Edmonton one at Anaheim 4Dec three: Anaheim two at Edmonton 3 (OT)Jan 25: Edmonton 4 at Anaheim 0Mar 22: Edmonton three at Anaheim 4Apr 1: Anaheim 2 at Edmonton 3 (OT)In 2006, Edmonton defeated Anaheim 4 video games to one in the only playoff match-up ever between the two teamsMay 19: Edmonton three at Anaheim 1May 21: Edmonton three at Anaheim 1May 23: Anaheim 4 at Edmonton 5May 25: Anaheim 6 at Edmonton 3May 27: Edmonton two at Anaheim 1
