Blues vs. Predators: Game 4 prediction

Author

04 May, 2017

St. Louis Blues takes on Nashville Predators, who leads the series 2-1 tonight in Game Four of their Round Two of the Western Conference, Stanley Cup 2017.

Ryan Ellis scored for the Predators in the first period.

The Blues' only goal of the game went in off Alexander Steen's glove on the Blues' first shot of the second period with 7:01 left in the period.

Brad Hunt played nine games for the Blues in December and January before the team lost him to Nashville on a waiver claim to the Predators, who proceeded to nearly never use him. Nashville pretty much dominated the entire game. Allen is slow to close the butterfly, likely because he is struggling to find a sight lane to the puck. "Good situation, 1-1", Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne told reporters after the loss.

"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". Allen was St. Louis' best player throughout the day, including 17 in a second period where the Blues were outshot 18-4.

For years, the Ravens relied on their defense to carry them and hoped their offense supplied enough yards and points in support. On the other end of the line, he was informed the Baltimore Ravens were taking him in the fifth round of the draft .

Meanwhile, Blues fans say the team needs to not pay attention to the buzz building in Nashville. They finished the regular season seven points ahead of the Blues, good for second in the Western Conference, and trailed the Chicago Blackhawks by just three points. "We've got to continue to make sure we keep it five on five and take away those opportunities".

If we ever see the Blues A-game, it gives you confidence they can win the game and the series. We might make some personnel changes but the essence of what we're trying to accomplish as a team and the game that we want to play is not going to change.

The Predators are looking forward not only to being back home, but the chance to play their first game in this series with a full complement of 12 forwards for an entire game.

The Ducks now have lost back-to-back games in regulation for the first time since the first two games of this season. He blocked a Roman Josi shot with his left foot at 10:04 of the first period. Ellis has scored in six straight games and leads Nashville scorers in the postseason with eight points off three goals and five assists. The visitors upped their margin to three after Oilers defenseman Darnell Nurse made a poor pass attempt from behind his own goal that went right to Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf, who snapped a shot over Talbot's shoulder. Getzlaf had corralled Darnell Nurse's clearing attempt around the boards to gain possession of the puck. I think as the game progressed, we got to our game a little bit more. And in terms of pure scoring, the trio has put up seven goals - more than any other line - while surrendering only one 5-on-5 goal against.

Forwards Zach Sanford and Magnus Paajarvi are expected to replace Kyle Brodziak and Ivan Barbashev in the 8:45 p.m game at Bridgestone Arena.
