St. Louis Blues right wing Vladimir Tarasenko (91), of Russian Federation, crashes into Nashville Predators goalie Pekka Rinne (35), of Finland, and defenseman Mattias Ekholm (14), of Sweden, during the first period in Game 3 of a second-round NHL hockey playoff series Sunday, April 30, 2017, in Nashville, Tenn. But three seconds after Reaves exited the box, Nashville's Ryan Ellis buried his third goal of the post-season for a 1-0 lead with 9:26 remaining in the period.

Ellis put the Predators ahead 2-1 at 3:07 of the third period, taking advantage of a turnover by Vladimir Sobotka and firing a slap shot past Allen.

St. Louis goalie Jake Allen had 22 saves, 14 in just the third period in game 2. In Game 1 against the Predators, the Blues made a third-period surge but ended up losing the game.

In net for Nashville was Pekka Rinne, who continues to shine each time he heads out onto the ice for the Predators. After splitting the series in St. Louis, the two teams were looking to go up 2 games to one in the series.

"We've just got to keep doing what we're doing", said Silfverberg, who scored Anaheim's only goal through a screen.

It was the Blues' lone power-play goal in five chances.

St. Louis Blues right wing Vladimir Tarasenko (91), of Russian Federation, skates to the bench after scoring the winning goal against the Nashville Predators during the third period in Game 2 of an NHL hockey second-round playoff series F. Fiala was expected to return to Nashville with the team following the game and doctors said he will need four to six months to recover from the broken femur he suffered in Game 1. He did have two assists in the previous four games, which included a great individual effort leading to Joel Edmundson's overtime victor.

The goal was his first on a power play in the playoffs since the opening round past year against Chicago.

"I think it was a really good experience previous year, playing two seven-game series", Rinne said. They also have never rallied from an 0-2 deficit to win a series.

Game 3 is Sunday in Edmonton. It marked the seventh straight game in which Ellis scored, tying the franchise record set by Colin Wilson last spring. "It's their home barn, they came out hard in the first". Ellis took the shot from the point and it deflected off Colton Sissons and then Neal before deflecting over Allen and into the net.

"If we get a chance as a D corps, there are a lot of guys who can skate and we try to join the rush and make something happen", Josi said.

Just after Ellis' goal, Predators defenseman P.K. Subban had his helmet knocked off by Edmundson along the side boards, sending him to the locker room. Nashville has been on fire at home and in these playoffs and while the value is on St. Louis I see Nashville getting it done again.
