Jaskin, Schwartz score as Blues beat Predators 2-1

Posted May 09, 2017

The Blues have gone on the road for a Game 6 in each of the last four postseasons.

St. Louis played well for most of Game 4, doing most of what it pledged to do after a 3-1 defeat in Game 3 which wasn't close.

"In every playoff game, to get the lead is really big", Berglund said. "But we'll learn from this and we'll find a way to get better". "But I was ready since day one when the playoffs started".

James Neal scored for the Predators, while Pekka Rinne made 30 saves.

Thirteen years, 11 National Hockey League seasons and 564 games later, Rinne and the team that drafted him in a round that no longer exists are a win away from reaching a place they've never been before.

"They are playing quicker than we are, " Laviolette said. "When you get good looks, you try to get them off good".

"We had to do it tonight and we did it and everybody's happy", Jaskin said. In a flawless world, that would be good, but I thought we've done a good job of responding when they've scored though.

Even though the Capitals possession numbers are dwarfing the Penguins, their inability to produce has left them out in the cold. Josh Archibald and Oskar Sundqvist were out there a long time, so it's a reasonable assumption they won't play tonight.

The Blues took the fight to the Predators, going ahead 2-1 early in the third period on a goal by winger Jaden Schwartz. Allen ranked just behind Rinne among stingy goalies this postseason, and the Blues had been the NHL's best team after coach Mike Yeo replaced Ken Hitchcock on February 1.

Tommy Pham doubled and hit a two-run homer after his recall from the minors, Matt Carpenter also hit a two-run homer and the St. Louis Cardinals overcame injuries to two starting outfielders to beat the Atlanta. "So we have to make sure that we're on top of our game at all moments so that we keep the crowd a little bit lower".

"It's tough when you're working so hard and you kind of feel like you're not getting credit nearly", Parayko said. We've got to stay aggressive. We can't let it phase us.

It's another win-or-go-home game on Sunday, and it gets tougher in less friendly confines than Scottrade Center-the Blues, especially offensively, will have to pull out all the stops. Each game is like a one-goal game. We had a lot of good chances. "Our system allows us to jump up in the play and we have forwards doing a great job of getting pucks to us".

Meanwhile, because we are going to be litigating that trade until the sun goes red giant and leaves the earth of a lifeless husk, the Montreal Gazette has another column trying to justify the Subban-for-Shea Weber swap. "I'd like to think that". "We put a lot more emphasis on the small things shot blocks and communication being there". The Predators still hold a 3-2 series advantage over Saint Louis.

Some don't feel like it's a big deal. It's not really up to me.
