Blues vs. Predators: Game 4 prediction


Upshall on Saturday explained one of the more unique moments in the Blues' Game 2 win.

The Blues pulled Allen with four minutes to go in the game. "Obviously, we've got to bear down on a lot more of our chances, but we take a lot of positives out of this and we go back home and get to work". Allen was St. Louis' best player throughout the day, including 17 in a second period where the Blues were outshot 18-4.

"It's about possession", Predators coach Peter Laviolette said. "That's a credit to our fans and the energy that comes into this building". The team that gets the better of game four may just capture the series.

"I don't think anyone's looking past the next game", Predators defenseman Mattias Ekholm said. Ellis has a seven-game point streak, including a goal in three straight games against the Blues.

After withstanding that assault, the Ducks added a pair of third-period goals to get back in the series. By the 12:00 mark of the first period, it was already a three-goal lead with Jakob Silfverberg and captain Ryan Getzlaf tallying. 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. Allen finished with 23 saves as the Blues lost consecutive road games for the first time since February 28 and March 3. Titans running back Demarco Murray was given this honor on Sunday. Country group Little Big Town became the latest to sing the national anthem, and Lee Greenwood sang during the second intermission.

The Predators put together an all-around, stellar performance in Game 2, where they took home a 3-1 win to stay undefeated at home in this postseason. He has had a knack for making those types of plays for the Predators over the past two seasons.

The Predators made it a two-goal lead at 2:29 of the second period with help from the fourth line.

"Obviously that's something that would be awesome for this organization too", Rinne said. "We've done a good job of that so far". Teams on the road just go out and play simple hockey. In fact, St. Louis has only led for 3:51 in the series, which was during Game 2 after Tarasenko's second goal.

The Oilers made it 3-2 just 1:28 into the second. Five total minor penalties were committed, two against Nashville and three against St. Louis. Against Nashville, the duo has combined for a mere five shots on goal in three games. Josi scored on a slap shot with 5:49 left to prompt yet another standing ovation by the standing-room only crowd. Josi had nine (one goal, eight assists) in 14 games. John Gibson stopped 24 shots. Edmonton opened its series with two wins in Anaheim.

A pattern seems to be developing for Oilers goaltender Cam Talbot: a few great games to start a series, followed by a clunker when the series shifts venues.
