Pekka Rinne of Predators revels in reaching Western Conference Final

Pekka Rinne of Predators revels in reaching Western Conference Final

St. Louis trails the best-of-7 series 3-2 with Game 6 at Nashville on Sunday.

Nashville Predators left wing Filip Forsberg (9), of Sweden, shoots as he is defended by St. Louis Blues defenseman Colton Parayko (55) during the third period in Game 5 of an NHL hockey second-round playoff series Friday, May.

Will the Nashville Predators be the first to punch their ticket to the conference finals when they face the St. Louis Blues in Game 5 at 8PM ET tonight? But first they'll have to win in Nashville on Sunday, which is no small task: the Blues were stymied offensively the last time they visited in Game 4. He started on a line with LW Dmitrij Jaskin and C Patrik Berglund.

After a 3-1 Game 6 elimination of the Blues, the Nashville Predators are on their way to the first conference finals in franchise history.

"Steener, even though he didn't play, he supported us", he said. "I like it. It gets you going". When Ryan Johansen put the Preds up 2-1 with a goal early in the third period, the "7th Man" crowd returned with a deafening roar that didn't stop for the rest of the game, and only managed to increase in the final minutes as Calle Jarnkrok made an empty net goal leading to the final score of 3-1. Nashville RW Craig Smith drew back into the lineup after missing the last six games with an undisclosed injury.




"I think we took a big step today for this organization and this city, but that's not our ultimate goal". We pictured Pawcho as a game that could be played as a collaborative effort between parent and child. "In their building, it's going to be tough". Pekka Rinne has given up 13 goals on 264 shots faced. "They were able to manufacture the timely goal that we couldn't manufacture this year". In 124 regular-season games he has scored just 22 goals but has more than three times as many assists (73).

Kassian made it 3-0 just 1:03 after Draisaitl's second goal. "I thought he was a force along the walls on both ends and a difference maker". Rinne faced seven and eight shots in the second and third periods, respectively, but held on for the series-clinching win. Ellis is tied for the team postseason lead with nine points; Ellis, Josi, and Subban are all in the top five; Ellis and Josi lead the Preds with four goals apiece. "We're going to enjoy it now for a few minutes and forget it and go get another one".

Neal tied it with Nashville enjoying a two-man advantage with 6:10 left in the second. "There's still a lot of hockey left to be played". Since 1982, he has personally hired just four head coaches (Terry Murray, Jim Schoenfeld, Barry Trotz and Peter Laviolette) for two organizations, Washington and Nashville, and fired just two of them, Murray and Trotz. We will make a small wager on this series... losing team's blogger makes a donation to the winning team's blogger charity of choice...

Mike Fisher had three blocks for the Predators - all on Vladimir Tarasenko - during the Blues' two-man advantage. Defensively, the St. Louis Blues are allowing 2.6 goals per game and are killing 84.8 percent of their opponents power plays.

"It still stings", said defenseman Alex Pietrangelo, the team captain. Obviously, we were good enough to win the series, but it's not like I felt we under-performed where in the past I felt like we hadn't met our own potential.
