The blues looked out in the first third as the secure winner: after a double strike within 48 seconds of David Perron (7.) and Brandon Saad (8.) Robert Thomas increased in the first third to 3: 0 for the guests (18. ). But the game had not yet decided. Even before the middle of the game Nashville had already balanced – Matt Duchene, Ryan Johansen and Filip Forsberg met for the Tennessee team (19th, 24th, 28th).
And it continued back and forth. Defender Torey Krug met with luck, because his shot was intercepted by a breaking racket, to the new lead for St. Louis (32nd). That, however, lasted only 39 seconds, because Duche lost Blues-Keeper Ville Huuso with a clever movement to 4: 4 (33.).
After that, both teams had chances to win, but the blues secured in the end. Jordan Kyrou demonstrated a lot of patience and overview in the final phase and overview and put Thomas (a total of four scorer points) his second goal of the evening (58.). Only two more goals into the empty Predators enclosures of Perron and defender Justin Faulk left the result at least on the paper a bit clearer (59.).
By success St. Louis built the lead on the divisional rivals in the Central Division to five points.
