Predators beat Blues 3-1 in game 3

Shortly after the bet was made public, the Predators took a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series when they defeated the Blues 3-1 in Game. 3.

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.

The bruising opening game sent Predators left winger Kevin Fiala, 20, off the ice on a stretcher after a violent collision in the second period.

Robert Bortuzzo rang the post behind Rinne in the third period's first five minutes, but the Blues couldn't generate any real sustained pressure after that until pulling Allen for the last 4:09.

Joel Edmundson scored with 3:49 left as St. Louis avoided the shutout.

The St. Louis Blues face a pivotal Game 4 tonight in the Music City against the Nashville Predators. McLeod poked a rebound behind Allen for his first goal of this postseason, and his third career playoff marker.

The Oilers continued to fire away at Gibson, but he tightened up his game and made several game-changing saves the rest of the period. With the Predators defensive lines playing at such a consistent and elite level, paired with the leadership and experience of Pekka Rinne, this will be a team that can certainly make a bid for a championship appearance. The period started out 4 on 3, and then moved to five on four.

Going into Game 4, the Blues were tied for first in the National Hockey League playoffs in hitting the most posts, dinging five. "As long as you don't play the puck, I think you're fine". "We're kind of keeping even keel throughout the game, the ups and downs".

"We're in a good spot right now, and those are the type of wins that you need sometimes from your goaltender", Oilers forward Milan Lucic said. "Obviously everyone knows what I think of "Stas" and with 'Sobi, ' the same thing. since he came back, he's a treat to play with", Steen said.

Upshall on Saturday explained one of the more unique moments in the Blues' Game 2 win. Ellis has a seven-game point streak, including a goal in three straight games against the Blues. The puck found its way through and into the back of the net for a 1-0 Predators lead.

"I thought that they did a really good job lobbying for that, and I mean every stoppage they're yelling at the refs", Yeo said of the Predators.
