Predators beat Blues 4-3 in Game 1 of second-round series

Doyle BarkerApr 29, 2017

"There's obviously some positives we can pull from it, but also at the same time, it's little things we have to focus on, things we have to improve on to continue to get better over the course of the series", Parayko said.

"I guess you could say that I started my career in the playoffs, so whenever I get back here I get a certain feeling that just makes the game fun and makes me want to elevate my game", Subban said.

After sweeping the top-seeded Chicago Blackhawks in the first round, the eighth-seeded Predators won Game 1 against the Blues 4-3 on Wednesday.

"It was a great play by Schwartzy and then probably scream for Eddy to give it to me and he made a good play", Tarasenko said. He tried to poke check the puck away from Fiddler and instead it ended up getting past him.

"The guys did a great job again, really battled hard the last five minutes", Allen said. He joins Craig Smith and Calle Jarnkrok on the sideline, the only difference is, we know Fiala won't be back this season.

The goal was his first on a power play in the playoffs since the opening round past year against Chicago. He has already had surgery that was successful.

Early in the second period, Kevin Fiala was stretchered off the ice after falling hard into the boards with Blues' defenseman Robert Bortuzzo. Fiala was removed from the ice on a stretcher taken to the hospital, where it's been reported he is alert and in stable condition.

After the delay for Fiala's injury and the arrival of a second ambulance at the arena, Subban drove a shot by Allen from the right circle for his first of the playoffs at 2:22.

Former New York Jets and Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan, who has a house in Nashville, attended the game wearing a Predators jersey.

Third period push - Down two, the Blues had no choice but to push the envelope and go for it in the third period.

Schwartz scored his third of the playoffs at 6:48 of the third, and Sobotka tied it with a wrist shot from the right circle over the glove of Rinne that clanked off the inside part of the post and in with 10:38 remaining. "Like you said, it's disappointing to be up halfway through the third there, but you have to stay out of the box".

NOTES: C Vernon Fiddler, who scored the game-winning goal in Game 1, also received a game misconduct penalty along with the kneeing major in the first period.

John Gibson - Anaheim's netminder gave up four goals on 31 shots in a 5-3 Game One loss. 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.
