Predators lose speed, fall to Blues 2-1 in Game 5

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

The last time the Blues came back to win a series down 3-1 was in 1999.

Assistant GM Martin Brodeur, who came out of the front office to serve as interim goalie coach to help resurrect Allen's season on February 1, will return to his pist as assistant GM and the team will hire a new goalie coach.

Nashville Predators right wing James Neal (18) and defenseman Roman Josi (59), of Switzerland, celebrate after Neal scored a goal against the St. Louis Blues during the second period in Game 5 of an NHL hockey second-round pla.

The Preds defeated St. Louis Blues 3-1 Sunday at Bridgestone Arena, taking the series-clinching win in Game 6 at home. No one wants to utter anything that could be deemed as disrespectful - and thus serve as motivation - to whichever team triumphs in Wednesday's Game 7. The Predators are so effective at doing this that the team even ranks second-last in blocked shots in the playoffs. The ultimate prize is the Stanley Cup, and Poile and the Preds, after finishing off St. Louis on Sunday following a stunning upset of the Chicago Blackhawks in the first round, need another eight victories to get there.

It's not like the Predators stormed out of the gate in October, but despite any regular season struggles encountered along the way, they have really found their stride, especially through two rounds of the playoffs. First P.K. Subban takes him out, then Colin Wilson knocks him to the ice, then Austin Watson steamrolls him along the boards (legally).

He finally got one 3:15 into the third of Sunday's Game 6 against the St. Louis Blues. This is their first trip to the conference finals after falling short in the second round in their first three attempts, including a year ago to San Jose after pushing the Sharks to seven games. Pekka Rinne has given up 13 goals on 264 shots faced. "We've got to find ways to make plays, use our speed more and our size and hold onto pucks". There's a lot of work left. At that point in the series, Nashville backliners had accounted for half of the team's 32 points as well as seven of its goals.

We all know Jaden Schwartz is a good player.

That was exactly what Nashville hoped for in trading for Johansen, who called scoring that goal a "good feeling".

After a scoreless first period in Game 5, Draisaitl put the Oilers ahead 15 seconds into the second when his shot was kicked into the net by Gibson. "Right now, I'm pretty happy".

Nashville had Grammy winners Lady Antebellum sing the national anthem, and forward Kevin Fiala, who broke his left leg in Game 1, wave the towel to rev up the fans who were ready for the puck to drop. "So whoever they play next is going to have their hands full".

The Predators have been the better team all series and only fell in Game 2 thanks to more than 20 penalty minutes on the road. Minus his top two defencemen with Oscar Klefbom and Andrej Sekera out of the line-up, Talbot bounced back after choking away a three-goal lead in 3:16 during game five. But do it twice more, and the city of St. Louis will be talking about it for years to come. "Probably every game, he was our best player and he was our best player again".

Laviolette's team needed only 35 seconds to formulate a response in the second period. That was the ninth goal by a Nashville defenseman this postseason, a franchise record. Once the Predators took the lead, it was the last time Smashville sat down. Unfortunately, Nashville has yet to yield more than two goals in their building in these playoffs. After losing Alex Goligoski, Vernon Fiddler (Currently a Predator), Jason Demers, Colten Sceviour, and even Mattias Janmark (from injury not trade) in the 2016 offseason, the Stars were just not the same team. "It was an exciting game, an exciting series, and now we're on to the next one".
