Game 5 is to be played tomorrow in St Louis.

St. Louis Blues defenseman Colton Parayko (55) and Nashville Predators left wing Harry Zolnierczyk (26) battle for the puck during the first period in Game 4 of a second-round NHL hockey playoff series, Tuesday, May 2, 2017, in Nashville, Tenn. That was most dramatically true when he made this heads up play in backing up Pekka Rinne. Following a Filip Forsberg shot, Ellis got the puck past goalie Jake Allen after a scramble for his fourth goal. Neal then scored with 6:57 left to crank up the Nashville celebration as the Predators won their eighth straight playoff game at home.

"Every stoppage, they're yelling at the refs", he said. Whitmore declined further comment. Joel Edmundson cut the Blues' deficit in half after he scored with four minutes left in the game.

St. Louis captain Alex Pietrangelo also wasn't happy with the way the officials called the penalties from the scrum. Neal finally scored his second this postseason intercepting the puck, spinning and hitting the top corner with a wrister.

Capitals defeat Penguins in Game 5 to stay alive
Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was busier, stopping 21 of 26 Washington shots. "We've sort of been able to park things". By then the Capitals already had a 1-0 lead on Oshie's shot from the right circle on the power play.

The Blues pulled Allen with 2:43 left and came agonizingly close to equalizing with 1:08 remaining, but Paul Stastny couldn't corral a loose puck at the left post with an empty net staring at him. It was time to stop talking and start focusing on the biggest game of the season.

However, Rinne, Ellis and Nashville pushed St. Louis to the cliff's edge.

Trailing the best-of-seven series two games to one after a 3-1 defeat to the Predators on Sunday, Yeo inserted Magnus Paajarvi and Zach Sanford in place of Kyle Brodziak and Ivan Barbashev. "But our guys have confidence and a good belief in the room". Nashville recalled C Frederick Gaudreau along with D Alexandre Carrier, D Jack Dougherty, D Petter Granberg and D Trevor Murphy from AHL Milwaukee. Other Blues scratches were RW Dmitrij Jaskin, D Luke Schmaltz, G Luke Opilka and RW Nail Yakupov.
