Predators 2, Blues 1
In one of the most physical games of the Stanley Cup playoffs, the
Nashville Predators edged the St. Louis Blues 2-1 Tuesday to take a
3-1 series lead in their best-of-seven Western Conference semifinal
Ryan Ellis and James Neal scored third-period goals to put Nashville
Ellis pounced on the rebound of a Colin Wilson shot at 5:09 during a
power play, slotting a wrister under Scottie Upshall and to the
right of diving goaltender Jake Allen for his fourth goal of the
playoffs. It marked the seventh straight game in which Ellis scored,
tying the franchise record set by Colin Wilson last spring.
Neal supplied the game-winner at 13:03, corralling a loose puck at
the top of the right circle and firing a wrister that beat Allen to
the stick side for his second goal of the playoffs.
Joel Edmundson replied for the Blues at 16:11, but it wasn't enough.
