NHL Predictions: Can the Predators close out the Blues in Game 5? 5/5/17

In that one, they had the advantage of home ice. "I've always had passionate interest in the game and it's kind of cool to have an economic interest in a team like this".

At 6:28 of overtime, Kyle Turris scored the game-winning goal, completing the comeback for the Senators in a 5-4 win, giving Ottawa a 3-2 series lead with Game 6 set for Tuesday.

Now, they need to summon that extra will because they aren't going to have the roar of the crowd on their side.

Subban is used to being centred out for choosing to be a little different, so Milbury's criticism was like water off a duck's back.

He loved to hear the boos and jeers. Johansen is the big center the Predators brought in with their first big trade of 2016, lost in all the attention focused on the acquisition of defenseman P.K. Subban. They have quite the task in front of them going into the lion's den in Nashville. Blues fans have typically turned it into Scottrade Center South during the regular season. But a pair of third-period Preds goals ignited Bridgestone Arena, kept Nashville undefeated at home and kept the postseason's most entertaining story alive. Making matters worse, the Blues have not won in that building all season.

But really, the more aggressive Poile emerged 17 months ago when he traded outstanding young defenceman Seth Jones to Columbus for Ryan Johansen, the No. 1 centre the Predators had never had (other than Forsberg).

As mentioned earlier this week, the Blues do have a history where they returned from 3-1.

But the Capitals scored three goals in the third period to take Game 5, 4-2, and force Game 6 on Monday night.

When the Predators later received their own two-man advantage in the second period, forward James Neal was the recipient of a brilliant passing display, tying the game with a layup goal.

And it has risen to new levels during the team's improbable run through Chicago and St. Louis as the west's eighth seed. It is not going to be easy on the hearts and stomachs of the fans, but the Blues have to find a way.

"We needed him to have a big game, and he did just that", Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo said of Jaskin. St. Louis 9-10-1332.

"It was an exciting game, an exciting series, and now we're on to the next one". The Blues have players playing above their normal station and it is catching up to them. Surprise playoff hero Joel Edmundson is also 23.

"The mentality we had to have to be able to bounce back from that is really impressive", Yeo said. With the two-on-one defensive scheme, Mattias was able to make a lovely cross-ice pass laterally, cutting the two Blues skaters and finding Josi in the far side-slot for an easy one-timer. They know they're in for a fight in Nashville and, at least through their words, say they are ready for it and relish the chance. Join the Bleedin' Blue team!

Sidney Crosby returned for the Pittsburgh Penguins, but it was not enough to knock off the Washington Capitals.
