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

Tarasenko scores 2, Blues beat Predators 3-2 to even series

St. Louis was held to just 23 shots in their Game 3 loss and it was a product of a "clog up the neutral zone" style of defense by the Predators when they have a lead, which they have repeatedly employed and been successful with throughout the playoffs.

The Nashville Predators drew their highest-ever local television rating for Sunday's Game 3 3-1 playoff win against the St. Louis Blues.

Playing hockey's version of keep-away most of Sunday, the Nashville Predators owned wide advantages in faceoffs and shots, cashing in enough of their chances to earn a 3-1 win over the St. Louis Blues that gave them a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven Western Conference semifinal.

The Nashville Predators pulled off one of the more surprising results of the opening round with a four-game series sweep over the Chicago Blackhawks and so far they are proving that performance was no fluke.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Music, barbecue sauces and local candies are at stake in the Western Conference semifinal between the St. Louis Blues and Nashville Predators. "I thought they reacted to us more than we reacted to them last game".

I would expect Game 3 and subsequent games in this series to be played much tighter defensively.

"We've just got to be aggressive but be smart", Pietrangelo said.

"Anytime we can be a plus line or chip one in, it's going to obviously help", McLeod said. "Now we have a chance to really step on their throats, and we can control our destiny". Nashville has been on fire at home and in these playoffs and while the value is on St. Louis I see Nashville getting it done again. He made 31 saves for the Blues. Next game is Tuesday at 8:30. Three seconds after Ryan Reaves' penalty expired, Ryan Ellis ripped one from the point through Jake Allen.

Hyundai Motor was also hit by massive recalls it estimated to cost around 200 billion won ($178 million) during the first quarter. The country is expected to emerge as the third biggest market in the world by 2020, with annual volume of five million units.

Ellis tied the franchise record with a point in his seventh straight playoff game.

"I got my stick on it and just tried to put it on net", Neal said.

To find the tickets, fans will have to download the Predators app and look for the Twice Daily Preds Pass. "They're talking to the refs.it's been that way all series". It's worked all series.

NOTES: St. Louis made lineup changes, inserting LW Magnus Paajarvi and LW Zach Sanford while scratching C Ivan Barbashev and C Kyle Brodziak. The Oilers have won each of the four playoff series they started by winning the first two on the road. "I am pretty sure that is what the "C" is for, so the league can deal with them". The Blues will still need to win two games in a row since they have been winning the even games to this point, but they have proven capable of that.

"Everybody wants the first goal", Laviolette said. Another defenseman, Ryan Ellis initiated scoring in Game 3 three seconds after a failed power play with a one-timer from 36 feet out at 10:34 of the first period. Country group Little Big Town became the latest to sing the national anthem, and Lee Greenwood sang during the second intermission.

Former Jets and Bills coach Rex Ryan also was in the stands for his second game this series wearing a Predators' sweater. Overall, the better team is the one leading the series through the first three games.

Pekka Rinne had something to say about that - 32 saves worth of something, actually - as he dominated during what amounted to a battle of netminding wits. While he's yet to light the lamp in the second round, Sissons has three assists in three games against the Blues and two goals and six points throughout this post-season. David Desharnais' pass went off the skate of Anton Slepyshev, flew into the air and hit Ducks defenseman Theodore before fluttering across the goal line.
