The St Louis Blues go in search of a road win at the Bridgestone Arena versus the Nashville Predators.
For St Louis it wasn't how you start but how you finish and that was a good thing Tuesday as visiting Tampa Bay was spotted a two goal lead before the Blues stormed back for a 4-2 victory. Alex Killorn and Tyler Johnson gave the Lightning a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes before the walls caved in on the visitors. Alexander Steen, TJ Oshie, Patrik Berglund and Vladimir Tarasenko all scored for St Louis as Ryan Miller improved to 2-0 with his new team with 15 stops while Ben Bishop took the loss on a 25 stop effort.

Something had to give when Pittsburgh visited Nashville Tuesday with both teams playing poorly. That something turned out to be the Predators with the Penguins skating away with a 3-1 decision that snapped a three game slide while Nashville dropped their fifth in six outings. Matt Niskanen scored twice with Chris Kunits also lit the lamp while Sidney Crosby posted three assists to make a winner of Marc-Andre Fleury who recorded 18 saves for the win. Patric Hornqvist supplied a second period tally for the Predators with Pekka Rinne taking the loss on 16 stops in his first appearance in 51 games due to an infection in his hip.
St Louis is 4-0 in their last four meetings in Nashville and have beaten the predators in four straight overallwhile the under has gone 25-5-3 in the last 33 trips to Nashville. The trends have me looking at the Blues but I need to confirm goalies so please check back...
