Back home, Preds eager to rebound off 1st postseason loss

Blues coach Mike Yeo says he wasn't "overreacting" by making two lineup changes at forward for Game 4 against Nashville Tuesday night at Bridgestone Arena.

Nashville Predators left wing Colin Wilson (33) tries to avoid a shot in front of St. Louis Blues goalie Jake Allen (34) during the second period in Game 3 of a second-round NHL hockey playoff series Sunday, April 30, 2017, in Nashville, Tenn.

In the second period, the Predators out shot the Blues 18-4, but each team managed a goal. The Oilers won 5-3.

The first-year Predators defenseman has been vital so far in the second round of the playoffs.

Game 5 is to be played tomorrow in St Louis.

The Blues and Predators are all even through two games in Round 2 of the Stanley Cup playoffs. I mean, he's been excellent for us. I thought we played well too.

The Blues weren't looking to alter their game on Tuesday; they just wanted better execution.

"He has had some really good games", Maroon said. We're in a new challenge now going to Nashville. "It's a good goal for us".

Nashville picked up a 3-1 victory and moved 2-1 ahead in its conference semifinal series, while the Oilers fell behind early, caught up but dropped a 6-3 decision. Jakob Silfverberg scored for the second time in as many games Friday to match captain Ryan Getzlaf with a team-leading four goals, while the 26-year-old Swede's point total resides at 28 in 29 playoff appearances since 2015.

The instability has concerned Washington, which fears it will slow the effort to retake Raqqa. Mattis called Turkish Defense Minister Fikri Isik on Tuesday, the Pentagon said.

Ryan Getzlaf had a goal and an assist, and Rickard Rakell, Chris Wagner and Ryan Kesler also scored for Anaheim, which lost the first two games at home. Ducks defenseman Josh Manson said this will test their character.

That won't be easy.

Nashville came into the postseason nearly an afterthought, but they swept top seeds the Chicago Blackhawks in the first round, the first such sweep by an eighth seed in National Hockey League history.

Nashville established a 2-1 lead in this series with a 3-1 win at home in Game 3 on Sunday.

Tarasenko tied it 1-1 with a power-play goal with 19.4 seconds left in the opening period. The Preds were razor-sharp from the start of the game and controlled most of the play. The Blues went with an empty net with more than three minutes to go because of the Predators' piling on.

Now Laviolette is hoping to use all four of his lines.

"Everybody wants the first goal", Laviolette said. Pekka Rinne finished with 17 saves.

"Any time you can be a plus line or chip one in like we did in Game 1", said McLeod, referring to Vernon Fiddler's game-winner late in the third period Wednesday night, "it's obviously going to help". He denied Vladimir Tarasenko twice on point-blank looks from the high slot before the midway point of the first period.
