Predators' Fiala out of playoffs after breaking leg

Nashville's Kevin Fiala leaves on stretcher with leg injury IMAGE

"You feel better yourself if you don't score some games, you can't score every game", he said.

Kevin Fiala was finally coming into his own in the National Hockey League and with the Nashville Predators. "I thought it was just a gutsy effort from that point to get back to work in the offensive zone and a huge goal by Vern to get us on top". "There are some things we can learn from that but the reality is the second period was not good enough and ultimately it cost us the game".

"It was tough", Subban said. Of course, St. Louis had only one power play advantage during the entire game as referees Chris Rooney and Francois St. Laurent put away the whistles, not calling any penalties after assessing a slashing call to Kyle Brodziak at 11:19 of the second period, awarding the Predators a five-on-three for some 30 seconds. "It was all those little things that added up, that we didn't do, that we did in the first series". The sellout crowd was still finding its seats when Sekera scored just 65 seconds into Game 2, slipping a long shot past Gibson for the defenseman's second career postseason goal and his first since 2011.

Play was halted for almost 20 minutes before Fiala left the ice on a stretcher and was transferred to Barnes-Jewish Hospital, where he had surgery. "We're going to come to work tomorrow and be ready for the next one". They learned the value of coming out strong in game two in their first round series, so Pred Nation is hoping to see that same effort tonight. Larsson is the latest unlikely scorer of a game-winning goal for Edmonton, which also got winners from Zack Kassian, David Desharnais and Anton Slepyshev in the first round.

Vladimir Tarasenko and his St Louis Blues team-mates proved the Nashville Predators are beatable after prevailing 3-2 in the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs. The Blues found themselves down 2-1 in the third period, but Lehtera scored a huge goal at the 7:39 mark to tie the game.

As a result, they already have equaled the number of road games they won during last year's playoffs, when they came within a game of reaching the conference finals.

Game 2 is Friday night in Anaheim. "We lost the first game, we couldn't lose this one".

Meanwhile, the Oilers overcame the Anaheim Ducks 5-3 thanks to a four-goal third period in game one.

"Yeah, we got to our grind, that's our game", Reaves said.

"We have to be better at home", Blues coach Mike Yeo said. "We're going to be tested more, much more especially in this series".

On the power play in the first, Subban reared back and fired his signature heavy slapshot from the edge of the circle.
