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

In the first game of the series PK Subban stepped up with a 1 goal, 2 assist performance, and in the second game of the series Ryan Ellis put up a goal and an assist.

Tarasenko, who had scored only one goal in the Blues' first six playoff games, snapped a 2-2 tie when a pass from Jaden Schwartz deflected off the skate of Joel Edmundson.

Ryan Ellis (3) scored in the first period to give Nashville a 1-0 lead in the first period. Rinne was equal to the task, finishing with 22 saves for the day. "He was a little frustrated with himself in the first series".

He scored the game-tying goal at the 7:39 mark of the third period in Friday's 3-2 win over the Predators that evened up the second-round series.

"It's about getting pucks through and making good plays at the right time", Ellis said of his postseason success. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article. We have to do another great job of being a good road team. "Obviously, I thought we played a decent game but probably didn't deserve to win that one and obviously didn't win that one".

- Overall goals per game was 4.9.

It was the knockout punch that the Preds were unable to throw with a pair of one goal leads in game two and through much of this game. He did have two assists in the previous four games, which included a great individual effort leading to Joel Edmundson's overtime victor.

The response to the team's victory in Game 2 was committing four more minors before the game was out of reach and losing the faceoff battle 62-38 per cent, which created more possession time for the Predators, who in turn outshot the Blues, 34-23.

Although the Ducks dominated long stretches of play in both contests, Talbot stopped 72 of 76 shots in the first two games in Anaheim. "Two shutouts the last series against San Jose?"

"We just need to respond well here", Nashville captain Mike Fisher said.

Anaheim has lost two straight games after an 18-game run since March 10 without a regulation defeat.

Justin Upton's fifth homer tied the game in the second. But Nashville just kept playing and this time came up with that big goal when it mattered.

Ducks defenseman Kevin Bieksa is doubtful for Game 2 after incurring a lower-body injury in the series opener, but help could be on the way. First he's bobbing his head to the music and next thing you know he's be sliding across the red line shotgunning a beer with one hand and flicking off the Blues with the other. The Ducks scratched F Nick Ritchie with an apparent case of the flu. Tarasenko was fourth in the National Hockey League with 39 goals.

The series shifts to Nashville for Game 3 on Sunday.
