Nashville Tops St. Louis

And while the defense hasn't been quite as good at silencing St. Louis' snipers - the Blues have seven goals in three games - the continued offensive production of the Predators' blueline is convincing some that Nashville has what it takes to potentially challenge for the Stanley Cup.

Just after the power play ended, Ellis gave Nashville a 1-0 lead with his slap shot from near the blue line at 10:34 off assists from Filip Forsberg and P.K. Subban.

The only game St. Louis has taken in this series was Game 2, where Nashville found itself in the penalty box for 23 minutes of action.

Alexander Steen will be the player to watch out as he posted his third goal of the postseason in Game 3 and now just needs one more goal to parallel his single-season playoff career high (4 - 2016 season). St. Louis scored it with 7:01 remaining in the second and that was there first shot of the period.

The Predators never got the man advantage in Game 2, and they got their first almost midway through the first period.

St. Louis coach Mike Yeo hinted at potential lineup changes for Game 4 Tuesday night.

In net for Nashville was Pekka Rinne, who continues to shine each time he heads out onto the ice for the Predators.

With Anaheim leading 4-3, Gibson made several big saves late in the second period and early in third to keep the Oilers from tying the game. If they're not, they'll be on the brink of elimination when they return to St. Louis for Game 5.

Meanwhile, Blues fans say the team needs to not pay attention to the buzz building in Nashville. The Predators, who swept top-seeded Chicago in the first round, surrendered three goals for the second straight game after limiting the Blackhawks to three for the entire series. "It was deadlocked at zeroes for most of the game and we just got a couple of bounces".

"He's another guy that helps us get to our game", Yeo said. "We took a shot, it got blocked, and everyone was kind of looking for it".

The two teams will reconvene in Edmonton Wednesday night in the fourth game of the series. Vladimir Tarasenko bailed the team out with two goals and the defenders did a better job of limiting chances.

The last time the Ducks lost their first two at home, the Predators knocked them out of the first round a year ago in seven games.

He also is one of the National Hockey League leaders in points by a defenseman this playoff season with eight (three goals, five assists). "We knew it was going to be a tough series and up until this point it hasn't disappointed". 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.

The puck drops at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday. Better puck possession would be one way. Only one blue liner, the New York Rangers' Brady Skjei, has more goals.
