The Predators are 6-1 in through seven playoff games, as they also upset the Chicago Blackhawks in a first-round sweep.
Unfortunately for the Blues, their silly penalties told only part of the tale in their 3-1 loss to the Predators.

Jakob Silfverberg had two goals and an assist for the Ducks, who blew a 3-0 lead before putting the game away. Ellis' seven-game postseason point streak is the longest in the National Hockey League by a defenseman since Chris Pronger of the Blues and Jason Woolley of the Buffalo Sabres each had a goal and eight assists during a seven-game streak in the 1998 playoffs, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. He was right, which is probably why captain Alex Pietrangelo conceded that the Blues must take a look in the proverbial mirror.
NOTES: McLeod became the 13th different Nashville player to score this postseason. "Fidds (Vernon Fiddler) did that in Game 1, so yeah, so far, so good". Whether it's on the wall and help us execute to get out of our zone a little quicker, allow us to get on the attack and to the offensive zone a little bit more. he's got the ability to make a play in the offensive zone and create something offensively.
Nashville had the first 15 shots of the second period for a run of 21-2, and for a stretch of 9:30 the Blues didn't register a shot of any kind until Vladimir Tarasenko had one blocked with 10:51 left in the middle frame.
The Nashville Predators are only two wins from advancing to their first trip to the Western Conference finals.
Joel Edmundson scored with 3:49 left as St. Louis avoided the shutout.
Ravens get defensive in draft, select Alabama CB Humphrey
The Baltimore Ravens selected Texas A&M offensive tackle Jermaine Eluemunor with their 5th round selection. Throughout his treatments, Casey Cares provided those activities when T.J. was feeling up to it.
The Blues aren't looking to alter their game; they just want better execution. John Gibson stopped 24 shots.
Game four in the best-of-seven series is Wednesday in Edmonton.
A pattern seems to be developing for Oilers goaltender Cam Talbot: a few great games to start a series, followed by a clunker when the series shifts venues.
Robert Bortuzzo rang the post behind Rinne in the third period's first five minutes, but the Blues couldn't generate any real sustained pressure after that until pulling Allen for the last 4:09.
Silfverberg knocked in a feed from Josh Manson at 4:56 of the third to make it 5-3.
The Blues have to stay out of the box in Game 4, plain and simple. Silfverberg's second goal of the game, challenged for offside but upheld, and Ryan Kesler's goal in the third period iced the game for the Ducks, who improved to 3-0 on the road during the playoffs. Ellis now has a point in six straight playoff games, extending his franchise record for a defenseman and also leading the Predators.
Rinne made 32 saves, and Allen had 23. Better puck possession would be one way.
