Blues vs. Predators 2017

Sunday's win marked Nashville's seventh consecutive home game win at Bridgestone Arena dating back to the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

To do that, they must respond to the Preds' dominant performance in Game 3 on Sunday afternoon. The shot was going wide, but Steen was able to get a stick on it.

Fans who buy season tickets can still save at least 50 percent on remaining playoff tickets. Five total minor penalties were committed, two against Nashville and three against St. Louis. In Games 1 and 3, Nashville controlled 62 percent.

If the Predators win, the St. Louis mayor owes Barry a basket featuring a blues compilation album, an assortment of local barbecue rubs and sauces, a gooey butter cake and a Blues jersey. The Blues failed to win a draw when shorthanded (0/7) in Game 1. Two occurred in the first 8 1/2 minutes of the second period when Nashville buzzed their zone at will. On the man-advantage this series, the Blues have only won 40 percent (6/15). I think we've got to get in Rinne's face a little bit more, more bodies to the net. Former Duck Patrick Maroon, who scored the game-winning tally on the power play Friday, has no trouble in that regard after setting career highs in both goals (27) and points (42) to go along with personal bests in rating (plus-13) and games played (81). He fought through two Blues defensemen and shot through traffic for his second goal.

Game 4 is Wednesday night.

Then again, maybe you chalk it up to Alain Vigneault adding toughness to the lineup vs. the Ottawa Senators ... or any number of antidotes. Nashville eventually won that one in overtime. "We keep saying this, but it's going to be the biggest game of the season next game". Filip Forsberg shot, and Ellis got to the puck after it bounced around in the slot and put it past goalie Jake Allen for his fourth goal. Alex Pietrangelo and Co. limited the Wild to only four even-strength goals throughout the series. Louis' best player throughout the day, including 17 in a second period where the Blues were outshot 18-4. "This series is a best of five now, and we're excited to get to Nashville". That goal came shortly after the Blues killed their third penalty of the game. Silver lining? They didn't give up an empty netter.

Ellis, a defenseman, has a seven-game point streak, including a goal in three straight.

Need More winners against the spread?

St. Louis, which took eight of the first 12 shots, went without a shot through almost 13 minutes of the second period without an attempt on Rinne.

It's true that Nashville has assembled one of the most impressive defenses in the entire league.

The trio of Ryan Reaves, Kyle Brodziak, and Scottie Upshall was one of the most offensively-gifted energy lines in the National Hockey League this regular season. Shortly after his near goal, the Predators hem the Blues in their own zone for nearly a minute thirty seconds after Joel Edmundson whiffs on the puck near the goal line, turning it over to the Predators. A goal from them could open the floodgates for the rest of the team. While it rattled the team momentarily, they managed to go up 3-1 heading into the third period until crowd momentum helped the Blues score two goals in two minutes. It was a back-breaking blast from the point that Jake Allen never saw. A cross ice pass from Ekholm to Sissons, allows for a Blues left wall entry and a pass from Sissons to McLeod who tips the puck on goal. Better puck possession would be one way. That didn't change in Nashville either.
