The blue line did it again.
Ryan Ellis opened the scoring and Roman Josi finished it off as the Nashville Predators defeated the St. Louis Blues in Game Three by a 3-1 final on Sunday afternoon to take a 2-1 series lead. The win gives Nashville seven consecutive playoff victories at Bridgestone Arena, and after the Predators said they had more to give in Game Three, they kept their word.
"I'll be honest, it was good to get back home in front of our fans and in the building," Nashville Head Coach Peter Laviolette said. "It was awesome today. That's a credit to our fans and the energy that comes into this building. You guys see that and get to experience it just like we do, so that's a real positive for us. But nobody likes losing, probably on any team, and you look for a response, and I thought the response was good today."
"It's a great response from last game from all of us," goaltender Pekka Rinne said. "It was obviously nice to play in front of our fans and it was a big win."
