National Hockey League playoff schedule 2017: Predators, Blues aim for conference final berths

19 May 2017

The Rangers were riding the momentum of back-to-back wins and scored two quick goals by Jesper Fast and Nick Holden to go ahead 2-0 just 5:13 into the game.

"Steener, even though he didn't play, he supported us", he said. "It's a joke. If someone knows what goalie interference is anymore, please call me and tell me".

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Blues needed a spark. The St. Louis Blues and Edmonton Oilers are each seeking to force Game 7. Defensively, the Nashville Predators are allowing 2.7 goals per game and are killing 80.9 percent of their opponents power plays. They were able to manufacture a timely goal that we couldn't manufacture this year.

NOTES: Ducks D Kevin Bieksa, who has been out since he was forced to leave during Game 2, missed Game 6 due to injury.

Jaden Schwartz gave the Blues a 2-1 lead 25 seconds into the third period on another rebound. But that total jumped seven - yes, seven - goals on Sunday during an early and relentless assault on Anaheim, so there's little else to say other than that Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl, Zack Kassian and the Oilers are still very much alive and touting more than enough resiliency to claim this series.

Up to you whether you want to pay the ransom, but the little ray of sunshine is that, if you do pay, you'll get your files back. They need to take a different approach and adhere in cyberspace to the same rules applied to weapons in the physical world.

They played the body to the tune of 33 hits, gummed up the neutral zone and put more shots on net than Nashville for the first time in the series.

The 20-year-old future face of the National Hockey League made a bold declaration after the Game 5 loss, per Robert Tychkowski of the Edmonton Sun: "There's not much that can really be said right now". After this second round, there are only four teams left.

"We had to do it tonight and we did it and everybody's happy", Jaskin said. During each of the levels we wanted short stories to further flesh out his adventure, but the problem was where to place them. At left is Predators head coach Peter Laviolette. "It was an exciting game, an exciting series, and now we're on to the next one". Dangerous Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko had five shot attempts, three of which Predators captain Mike Fisher blocked. I bet you halfway through the season not many people thought we'd be where we are today having this conversation.

So, a milestone has been crossed... history made... with a lot more to come... eight down... eight to go.

Ask any player on the Nashville Predators who they'd rather play in the conference final and you're more likely to prompt a laugh then an answer. The Predators got to this point by way of sweeping of the No. 1 seed Chicago Blackhawks in the first round and taking the latest series in six. If the team falls apart in the Western Conference finals, at least fans will have someone to point their fingers at and blame. They each scored twice before the Oilers skated off the ice with a 5-0 lead after one period.

Speculation: The LA Clippers should consider Kyle Lowry if Chris Paul leaves
The Raptors can re-sign Lowry with his Bird rights, but they won't have much if any cap room to make sizable additions. DeMar DeRozan had 22 points and eight assists despite taking an Iman Shumpert knee to the groin in the second quarter.

"Everybody's trying to win every game they play".

The Oilers had several golden scoring chances in overtime, but were unable to convert any of them.

The seventh and deciding game is in Anaheim on Wednesday.

With Klefbom and Sekera gone, Eric Gryba, who hadn't played since Game 1 of the first round, and call-up Griffin Reinhart were dressed.

The Predators won their ninth straight playoff game in Nashville going back to last postseason.

Johansen scored at 3:15 of the third to break a 1-1 tie. You'll get there. WSMV might want to keep that lower-third graphic handy just in case the Preds win their next series against the Ducks or the Oilers - minus the "s", of course. Video review found no goalie interference because Kesler had been shoved into Talbot by Darnell Nurse, and the Ducks celebrated madly. After a shaky first period for the Predators overall, adjustments were made, particularly in the cycling routine on the offensive end.
