Playing their best game of the series on Sunday, the Nashville Predators regained control of their Western Conference semifinal with the St. Louis Blues. Nashville now leads the series 2-1.

McLeod gave Nashville a 2-0 lead with his first goal of the postseason just 2:29 into the second period with a backhander past Allen.

That was one of 15 shots Nashville poured at Allen before St. Louis finally got one on Rinne in the period. "I made some big saves early".

"It shows a lot of character coming off a loss last game", Predators goalie Pekka Rinne said.

"We've just got to keep doing what we're doing", said Silfverberg, who scored Anaheim's only goal through a screen. His third-period goal helped the Blues break the tie with less than four minutes left, and it went on to be the game-winner. After falling in Game 2 in St. Louis, the Preds bounced back and won 3-1.

"He has had some really good games", Maroon said.

The Predators hurt themselves with penalties in Game 2, racking up a total of 23 in St. Louis. "Obviously, I thought we played a decent game but probably didn't deserve to win that one and obviously didn't win that one".

The Predators lost Game 2, but should still feel like they were the better team.

Game 4 will take place in Nashville on Tuesday night at 9:30 p.m. ET.

Mayor Megan Barry and her St. Louis counterpart, Lyda Krewson, announced Sunday that they have placed a friendly wager on the outcome of the second-round National Hockey League playoff series between the teams in their respective cities. Why, yes, when Anaheim goes up 3-0, surrenders a three-goal lead and then storms back to get to six goals, a franchise record in the postseason, that seems an appropriate description. "We're kind of keeping even keel throughout the game, the ups and downs".

He got that helping hand by Ellis in the final seconds of the second period with the Blues on the power play on a puck that got behind Rinne.

Blues head coach Mike Yeo says that one of his fears entering the second round against Nashville was that his team didn't have enough anger towards the Predators. Ellis took a shot from the point that deflected off Colton Sissons and then Neal before deflecting over Allen and into the net.

"It is the first time I see a referee not let the captain talk to them", Pietrangelo said.

Just after Ellis' goal, Predators defenseman P.K. Subban had his helmet knocked off by Edmundson along the side boards, sending him to the locker room.

Ellis had a goal and an assist in Game 2 of this season.
