The Blues suffered their first road loss of the postseason in Game 3 and will look to even the series in the second installment in Music City. The last two times the Blues have faced a 2-1 series deficit, they evened the series in Game 4 (2016 vs. SJS, 2015 vs. MIN). St. Louis' Game 3 loss was a bit of an oddity as they have won nine of their last 11 road games. However, they will be looking to snap a four-game skid at Bridgestone Arena as their last win here came on Feb. 2 (1-0 W).
What to Watch
Alexander Steen scored his third goal of the postseason in Game 3 and is now just one goal shy of tying his single-season playoff career high (4 - 2016). In addition, Steen has logged three of his seven road goals this season (reg + postseason) over his last five games
- Ryan Reaves shares fifth overall with 35 hits this postseason
- After surrendering a pair of power-play goals in back-to-back games, the Blues' PK was dormant in Game 2 and stopped all three Nashville attempts in Game 3
- Alex Pietrangelo recorded his 21st postseason assist in Game 3, passing Barclay Plager for 6th on the Blues' all-time list among defensemen
- The Blues haven't lost consecutive road games since dropping three straight from Feb. 18 - Mar. 3 (12-2-1 since)
