Predators eliminate Blues, advance to 1st conference final

"I never took calculus but if it was a math equation, I'd still be doing the math on why I wasn't still in Montreal", Subban said when asked by hosts Bob McCown and Damien Cox if he saw the shocking June 29, 2016 trade coming. "I've got a lot of work to do to keep playing at my best".

Leon Draisaitl had three goals and two assists, Mark Letestu added two goals and two assists, and the Oilers cruised to a 7-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday night, forcing a decisive Game 7 in their NHL Western Conference semifinal series. Of the teams remaining in the playoffs, Nashville has the second best penalty kill behind NY, and the fourth best power play. Jaden Schwartz leads St. Louis with four goals, Alexander Steen has four assists and Vladimir Tarasenko has 39 shots on goal. Nashville had trouble completing simple passing sequences against active sticks, and St. Louis earned plenty of zone time. However, he ranks all the way down in 20th in terms of high-danger shots faced. "There were a lot of shots and zone time for them and we weren't really crisp with our passes".

"I think Ryan's had an excellent year and just the growth for me in him as a person and as a leader as somebody who wants to be that guy, to make a difference and make sure a team moves in the right direction, it's been noticeable this year that he's really trying to take ownership", Laviolette said. The Blues are pushing the pace and Nashville knows they can't turtle this last period.

Nashville got on the board early in the second with a goal by Roman Josi. When Nashville stays out of the box, St. Louis can't seem to beat it. Pekka Rinne got back on track while at home, making 54 saves in two games. At that point in the series, Nashville backliners had accounted for half of the team's 32 points as well as seven of its goals.

"He's been great for us", Wilson said.

Because they couldn't escape the yellow-colored, bee-like swarm of Nashville's defense.

Yeo was upset about the call and said he didn't get an explanation. While we may be big fans of Pawcho as a team, we also understand we don't have brand recognition for easy sales.

St. Louis could not play their game penalties as well as being out hustled on the boards was key to their loss.

Rinne's best stop came halfway through the final period when he made a pad save in the goalmouth off Canadian Kyle Brodziak, allowing the Predators to go on and advance to their first National Hockey League semi-final series in the team's 19-year history.

Nashville Predators players celebrate after Calle Jarnkrok, not shown, scored an empty-net goal against the St. Louis Blues during the third period in Game 6 of a second-round NHL hockey playoff series Sunday, May 7, 2017, in Nashville, Tenn. They still managed to stave off elimination Friday night thanks to a strong defensive effort in a 2-1 win. And Jay Bouwmeester. As did Dmitrij Jaskin, who was so good the game before. The Nashville Predators have allowed a combined four goals in their last three games.

NOTES: St. Louis made lineup changes, inserting LW Magnus Paajarvi and LW Zach Sanford while scratching C Ivan Barbashev and C Kyle Brodziak.
