Predators' Fiala out of playoffs after breaking leg

"Like you said, it's disappointing to be up halfway through the third there, but you have to stay out of the box".

The game, which was ultimately decided on a fluky goal scored by seldom-used Vernon Fiddler, who played just 8 minutes, 32 seconds on Wednesday, came down to the Predators' ability to scored two power-play goals.

On the power play in the first, Subban reared back and fired his signature heavy slapshot from the edge of the circle. Last game was the first step of that and today is the next. "He's always working hard, he's shoving pucks in and he's always making our team better".

Game 1 between the Predators and Blues was quite the treat for hockey fans in Nashville's 4-3 win.

Ellis put the Predators ahead 2-1 at 3:07 of the third period as he took advantage of a turnover by Vladimir Sobotka and fired a slap shot past Allen. Pekka Rinne stopped 27 of the 30 shots he faced, which isn't outstanding, but it was good enough.

"It's a great play by Schwartzy and then I probably scream for Eddy to give it to me and he made a good play", Tarasenko said. "That's going to be a tough one, so tomorrow's going to be a huge game". That means the Blues trail for the first time in the 2017 playoffs and Nashville has still yet to drop a game. And he has shown me that he hasn't done that so if he continues to play well and continues to play the right way it's not possible to keep him off. There is also a plaza party at Bridgestone Arena tonight. that gets going at 6:30pm.

However, for the first time in franchise history, Nashville holds a lead in a playoff series in the second round.

The Blues meanwhile had a strong performance of their own in the opening round as they took down the Minnesota Wild and now have a chance at advancing to the Western Conference final if they can rid of the Predators in this series.

- Pittsburgh - Washington dropped the puck last night... and it got chippy quick... After the pass from Schwartz that was kicked up to him by defenseman Edmundson, Tarasenko shot the puck off Predators defenseman Roman Josi past Rinne. "We were bound to lose a game. I thought it was just a gutsy effort from that point to get back to work in the offensive zone and a huge goal by Vern to get us on top".

The Ducks came unglued defensively in the third period of Game 1, yielding four goals.

The goal was his first on a power play in the playoffs since the opening round a year ago against Chicago. When you're in a playoff series, it's a process in terms of learning your opponent, but trying to improve your game, trying to find ways to limit them getting to their game and trying to find more ways to get to yours.

The main problem was the Blues taking too many costly penalties. LW Ivan Barbashev was inserted into the Blues' lineup in place of LW Magnus Paajarvi.

For those who look to regular season play between these two divisional rivals, Nashville won three of five games, outscoring the Blues 15 to 11.

The Predators built their 3-1 lead on a goal and two assists from defenseman P.K. Subban, the second three-point game of his playoff career.
