James Neal Scores 35 Seconds In On Ducks To Start Playoffs

That was so, so sweet.

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

James Neal had 15 playoff goals (four with Nashville) to his name entering tonight, he increased that tally to 16 just 35 seconds in to start the Predators' series against the Ducks.

Just seconds before Neal buried the go ahead goal, Calle Jarnkrok and Shea Weber nearly hooked up for the quick lighting of the lamp.

Regardless, that's the way to start a hockey game; especially a hockey game on the road in a very hostile environment.

Neal's goal was unassisted.
