Preds head into Game 4 with series lead against St. Louis Blues

Preds head into Game 4 with series lead against St. Louis Blues

Ellis' eight points lead all Predators in the playoffs.

Little Big Town, complete with Nashville jerseys, were on hand to rattle off the national anthem prior to Game 3. "What we're looking for is people that are going to help us get to that game". "We're playing some teams that really know how to move the puck and shoot the puck, but we have to limit their opportunities to take good shots or make plays". Goaltender Jake Allen also stood tall when it mattered most, making 14 saves in the final 20 minutes after facing only nine shots in the first two periods.

The Blues will visit the Predators for Game 3 at 2 p.m. on Sunday in Nashville at Bridgestone Arena.

That has forced Nashville coach Peter Laviolette to mix and match lines, double-shifting some players. "If you want to have success, we have a job to get done". "Down the stretch, we bent but we didn't break, and that's the sign of a good team".

Andrej Sekera scored an early goal for the Oilers, who took the first two games on Pacific Division champion Anaheim's home ice. "I thought they dominated a lot of the 1-on-1 battles in the game, too, so they were better than us in all the small areas of the game and that's why they won".

"This game was just an all-around good hockey game by both teams", Ellis said.

Rinne finished with 22 saves, including a flurry of stops to preserve the win. - Dak Prescott, who was spotted in his own Predators apparel from the Game 3 audience.

There are many things all hockey fans can agree on.

The Oilers now head home to Edmonton for the next two games with a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.




It would make sense then that the Blues' first shot of the period - off a glove, no less - would finally find the back of the net.

Something had to give in this game.

The Blues were whistled for three penalties in the first period, and though Nashville didn't pick up any power-play goals, the Predators scored twice shortly after their man advantages expired.

Game 3 is Sunday in Nashville. It marked the seventh straight game in which Ellis scored, tying the franchise record set by Colin Wilson last spring. On top of the knee-to-knee hits, Alex Pietrangelo narrowly missed being blasted in the face by a puck.

Nashville Predators left wing Cody McLeod (55) celebrates with defenseman Ryan Ellis (4) after Ellis scored against the St. Louis Blues during the third period in Game 2 of an NHL hockey second-round playoff series Friday, April 28, 2017, in St. Louis. "I guess we're still in for a long series and have to get rested and go into a tough building".

"He's a guy obviously he has some size, skating ability", Yeo said. Also narrowly missing something horrific was David Perron.

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.

Blues defenseman Robert Bortuzzo had a shot go off the post within the first five minutes of the third. Josi scored on a slap shot with 5:49 left to prompt yet another standing ovation by the standing-room only crowd. "But we're in the playoffs, we're doing everything we can to win the next game and that was the coach's decision". Edmonton also had golden chances, such as McDavid getting alone and untouched in front of Gibson during a power play, but couldn't cash in.

Kris Russell collected two assists for Edmonton.
