Nashville Predators Vs. St. Louis Blues

Game 4 is Wednesday night in Edmonton as the Ducks look to tie the series and wrest home-ice advantage back from the Oilers.

Despite being on the road, where the Blues have found great comfort in the past couple of months and particularly in these National Hockey League playoffs, St. Louis could not find any at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. The Preds were razor-sharp from the start of the game and controlled most of the play. This coming after the Predators played keep away from the Blues for a good minute. "I'm playing with pretty good players, too".

The puck goes to Ryan Ellis at the left center point and Ryan Ellis takes a low shot that goes through traffic and into the net. Three seconds after Ryan Reaves' penalty expired, Ryan Ellis ripped one from the point through Jake Allen.

"It's the consecutive penalties that are getting us into trouble", Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo said. I wonder if Allen has a better chance at a save if Steen doesn't cut through the lane.

The Blues came about for the 2nd period and struggled yet again which seems to be a pattern at times for this team. McLeod was assisted by Colton Sissons and Mattias Ekholm. Perhaps this was a fatigue error?

Brad Hunt played nine games for the Blues in December and January before the team lost him to Nashville on a waiver claim to the Predators, who proceeded to nearly never use him.

Josi's third-period insurance goal came at the end of a 1:42 shift.

It would make sense then that the Blues' first shot of the period - off a glove, no less - would finally find the back of the net.

Alexander Steen scored for the Blues, who lost for the first time on the road this postseason. If Bortuzzo's post had gone in, the Blues would have erased leads in every single game.

Nashville's defensive unit has also accounted for most of the team's offense as well, with at least one defenseman contributing to 12 of the last 13 goals for the team in the playoffs. That can not change tonight. It's important to note that fourth-line players delivered the game-winning goals for the Predators in Games 1 and 3.
