- The Nashville Predators overcome watching one of their teammates carried off the ice on a stretcher and a rally by the Blues in the third period for a 4-3 win Wednesday night in game one of the second-round series at Scottrade Center. Vernon Fiddler scored the game-winning goal with 5:05 to play after the Blues rallied from a 3-1 deficit to tie the game on goals from Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Sobotka.
- Early in the second period, Nashville left winger Kevin Fiala had to be taken off the ice after he slid hard into the boards following a check from Blues' defenseman Robert Bortuzzo. The Predators said he was alert and stable but offered no other information about his condition.
- Game two of the series will be Friday night at Scottrade Center.
- After Wednesday night's rainout, the Cardinals and Toronto Blue Jays will play a day-nigh split doubleheader today at Busch Stadium. Carlos Martinez will start the 12:45 p.m. game and Adam Wainwright the game set to begin at 6:15 p.m.
