Predators take 2-1 series lead, beating St. Louis Blues 3-1

Ellis Copeland | 03 May, 2017, 02:55

The bounce back this team showed in game three was a joy for Pred Nation to behold... but there is much more work to be done. Despite the loss, Edmonton still leads its series 2-1.

Going into the third period, the Predators were looking to have a two-goal margin again.

Paajarvi was the overtime hero in the Blues' series clincher against Minnesota, but after playing in Game 1 against Nashville, in which he had an assist and was a plus-1 in 12:49 of ice time, he was pulled out of the lineup for Games 2-3.

One of the most glaring stats from game 3 was the faceoff battle, which was 62-38 percent in favor of the Predators.

Trend: The UNDER is 10-4-4 in the last 18 games between the Predators and Blues. Coach Mike Yeo made some line changes at practice Monday after stating his team was not competitive enough in Game 3.

"You're giving them and their skill players the opportunity to field the puck and make plays", St. Louis captain Alex Pietrangelo said. "They upped their game, they took their game to another level and we didn't match it".

Tucker, this Toronto team seemed better equipped to beat Cleveland than the one which lost in six games in last year's playoffs. The Cavaliers' defense was doubling and trapping Lowry and DeRozan, yet the Raptors were unable to make the Cavaliers pay.

The offence are the primary beneficiaries, with blue-chip tight end O.J Howard joining a potentially explosive group in Florida. Pace was also adamant: He didn't get bluffed into a trade. "Once you have conviction on a guy, you have to do it", Pace said.


Leonard Has 32 Points, Spurs Rout Grizzlies 111-82 in Game 1
The Spurs took a 2-0 lead in their best of seven first round series in front of the home crowd at the AT&T Arena in San Antonio. In his post-game press conference on Tuesday, Fizdale called the officiating "unprofessional and "unacceptable".


The defenseman scored Sunday when he swatted a loose puck toward - and ultimately into - the net. They can not expect Vladimir Tarasenko and the top two lines to carry the offense. St. Louis was outworked in every facet of the game and now finds itself one loss away from a 3-1 hole. Ryan Ellis scored in the first period, Cody McLeod had a nifty deflection in the second and Roman Josi scored late in the third. This was the case almost every season when Ken Hitchcock was coach, and this lack of consistency seems to be rearing its head again against the Nashville Predators this year.

"We're not overreacting", Yeo said. Bottom line is when we look at the tape, where we got beat was really around our net. We've had one game go Over the total, one game stay Under and one game result in a push in the first three games of this series, but I would expect goals to be hard to come by for the rest of this series. "We knew that coming in it's a huge game".

Game four in the best-of-seven series is Wednesday in Edmonton. NY may not be a particularly live underdog to come back to win this series from 2-0 down but maybe there is one team that can still pull it off. "Obviously that wasn't the case". The three goals ties him for the most ever by a Nashville defenseman in a single playoff year.

The Nashville Predators are 8-2 straight up in their last 10 games at home, including a ideal 3-0 home record this postseason. Additionally, they need to improve their play in the center part of the ice. The Blues had outshot the Predators 8-4 until that penalty.

Louis Blues 3-1 in Sunday afternoon's game at Bridgestone Arena. He didn't blow his whistle until Steen retaliated, though. "If we do that I think we have a better chance". "That's what we've got to do from the start". The reality is that number is even higher. There's been a handful of odd-man rushes for the Blues in this series, but drawing first blood would open up more chances to catch the Predators on their aggressiveness. If you're at the game make some noise, but you're also making a difference watching the game at home. The Predators outshot St. Louis, 34-23, in the win.

"We were killing penalties", Steen said.
