Predators' Fiala out of playoffs after breaking leg

"The building was rocking". It's tougher; it's not tougher, but it's tough on a guy like that when you have to answer the questions - "You're not scoring" - and obviously the pressure that you have to deal with it, the matchups that you face, the focus that the other team puts on you. "We just regrouped and went back at them and found a way to get the two points". We've just got to keep that for 60 minutes, have a good start and keep it 5-on-5, because they showed they've got some big weapons on the power play. After posting two shutouts in the first round, Talbot stopped 72 of 76 shots in the first two games in Anaheim, including a number of outstanding stops to frustrate the Ducks in Game 2.

"I think there's a belief in our room that hopefully will continue to grow and grow throughout these playoffs", captain Mike Fisher said, according to NHL.com.

The Blues got even in the third period on goals from Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Sobotka, testing the Predators' response to adversity again. He tried to poke check the puck away from Fiddler and instead it ended up getting past him.

"I want to know that I can help the team to win the games before I come back", Vatanen said. He made a little flip pass, and I just got a piece of it and just chipped it over the goalie.

Predators coach Peter Laviolette thought the biggest mistakes by his team were committing too many penalties, even though Nashville allowed only one power-play goal.




Early in the second period, Predators left wing Kevin Fiala slammed hard into the boards on a clean hit from Blues defenseman Robert Bortuzzo.

The 20-year-old Fiala had to be taken off the ice on a stretcher and was transported to a local hospital. Their leading playoff scorer is Ryan Johansen with 7 points (1 goal, 6 assists). "Watching them was fun, but being a part of it is a lot better".

Nashville is unbeaten in the post-season, while St. Louis is still looking for a rhythm. Parayko had a goal, five shots on net and was plus-three in the game-one loss. The Blues still had a chance to win in the third period despite all of that. Nashville would advance the next two seasons to the conference semifinals, defeating Anaheim for their first series victory but losing to Vancouver in 2011. He eased some of that burden with a power-play goal late in the first period, tying the score 1-1 after Neal had netted the game's first goal.

"It's really nice to see him get rewarded and get a couple of goals", Letestu said of Larsson, acquired by Edmonton in the trade of former No. 1 draft pick Taylor Hall to New Jersey.
