Both Western Conference semifinal series in the Stanley Cup Playoffs continued on Friday.
At St. Louis:
Vladimir Tarasenko scored twice (his second being the game winner with 3:51 remaining) as the St. Louis Blues squared their series with the Nashville Predators at one game apiece following their 3-2 home win in game two.
The defeat was the Predators' first of the playoffs.
At Anaheim, California:
Patrick Maroon delivered a power-play goal while goalie Cam Talbot saved 39 of 40 shots as the Edmonton Oilers will take a two-games-to-none series lead back to Alberta after their 2-1 game-two road win over the Anaheim Ducks.
