This game started out very physical in the first period. Blues winger Pat Maroon dropped the gloves against Nashville forward Cody McLeod just two minutes and three seconds in to the first period. The Blues would get two goals in this period. One by the young Defensemen Vince Dunn and one by assistamt captain Vladimir Tarasenko. The Predators came in to this game with the worst power play in the league, but got a power play goal in the second period from Mattias Ekholm to make it a two to one game going in to the third period. The Predators came alive in the third. However, they were only able to score one goal when they pulled their goaltender Pekka Rinne with just a few minutes left in the game.
You’ll hear about all of this and much more on this episode of The Drop!
