Rallying Predators keep Canucks from moving on

NHL.com @NHL

The Nashville Predators are reminding the Vancouver Canucks that it's never over till it's really over.

Once again.

The Canucks thought they learned that lesson after nearly blowing a 3-0 series lead and needing overtime in Game 7 to knock off the Chicago Blackhawks in the first round. They led Nashville 3-1 only to see the Predators win their first elimination game in six tries Saturday night 4-3 to extend this Western Conference semifinal to Game 6 on Monday night in Nashville.

Vancouver is 1-4 when having a chance to eliminate an opponent this postseason. Goalie Roberto Luongo says they should know by now what it takes to finish off a series.

The Predators are back home, trying to force the first Game 7 in franchise history.
