Two games---both in the Western Conference---were contested as the Stanley Cup Playoffs continued on Monday.
At St. Louis:
Mattias Janmark, Vernon Fiddler, and Jason Spezza (power play) each scored a first-period goal as the Dallas Stars held off the home-standing St. Louis Blues 3-2 in game six of their conference semifinal series.
The series, now deadlocked at three games apiece, will be decided in game seven on Wednesday night at Dallas.
Viktor Arvidsson scored the winning goal 2:03 into overtime as the Nashville Predators leveled their conference semifinal series with the San Jose Sharks at three games apiece following their 4-3 game-six home victory.
The series, in which the home club won every game, is set to be decided on Thursday at San Jose.
