NHL Predictions: Can the Predators close out the Blues in Game 5? 5/5/17

NHL Predictions: Can the Predators close out the Blues in Game 5? 5/5/17

"It was an exciting game, an exciting series, and now we're on to the next one".

"I intend to attend every game until the Cup now", said Wilson, envious he's missed the city-wide euphoria prompted by the Predators' ideal home playoff record en route to their first trip to the west final.

The Blues were eliminated from the Western Conference Second Round by the Nashville Predators in six games.

The Blues extended the Western Conference Second Round with a 2-1 win against the Nashville Predators in Game 5 at Scottrade Center on Friday.

St. Louis is well aware that in Game 4 Tuesday night, it will have to do a better job of accounting for the Predators' defensemen and their ability to produce points. Instead, they rallied back. "I think we took a big step (Sunday) and obviously for this organization and this city, but that's not our ultimate goal". "And that's what we asked our guys before the game is whatever happens good, bad, you have to make sure that you come back and you're ready to go out and perform".

"That's one of his things, he's fantastic at doing that", defenseman Ryan Ellis said. Nashville is just playing harder and they seem to want it more.

Leon Draisaitl, Oilers - A bona fide Duck killer, Draisaitl completed his first playoff hat-trick before the end of the second period for his fifth point of the evening.

One more day can be the only mantra right now.

Jaskin was in the lineup in place of forward Alexander Steen, who participated in warmups but was scratched.

Jaskin made his chance count. After getting the first goal of the game for the first time all series and then a go-ahead score in the third, the Blues had enough in the tank to finish it off. Even then, the stylish, individualistic Subban was attacked by USA television analyst Mike Milbury as a "clown" for daring to dance on his skates during warm-ups.

But Nashville needed just 35 seconds of the second period to equalize. After avoiding the penalty box in Game 2, aside from a coincidental minor in the third period, the Blues took a half-dozen minors on Sunday. The injured Blue has become a forgotten Blue, and I get how that goes in the whirlwind of a playoff run. Pekka Rinne has given up 13 goals on 264 shots faced. For reference, the best high-danger save percentage during the regular season (10 or more games worth of ice time) was.857.

SlapShot Radio has been delivering great hockey talk to the most energetic and engaged fans in radio and advertising with us drives results. The Blues beat the Predators 2-1. Perhaps he can break out Sunday-somebody will have to. True, they are both very inconsistent goalies and the Stars should aim to get a new one, but they weren't the sole problem.

Now, here's where it gets interesting. Without a doubt, they'll be a rowdy bunch.

The Blues come out clicking on all cylinders.

The Blues again started strong in Game 3 in Nashville but yet again it bore no fruit. "That building's rocking. Always is, it's fun to play in". "A lot of people probably counted us out maybe potentially making the playoffs, maybe squeaking in, but I think even with the struggles we had mid-season, we proved we nearly caught second place in our division and we're still there". Obviously because we had trouble scoring, our special teams were magnified and they had the advantage in that area. Win this game today and worry about the rest later.
