Predators Slip Past Blues 2-1
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Martin Erat scored in the fifth round of the shootout to give the Nashville Predators a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Friday night.

Erat sent a shot high over the glove hand of Jaroslav Halak and Pekka Rinne kept the Blues scoreless on all five attempts to win for the second game in a row in a shootout.

Matt Halischuk scored for the Predators. Rinne stopped 35 shots.

The Blues got a goal from T.J. Oshie. Halak stopped 33 shots.

A giveaway by the Blues allowed Halischuk to get his eighth of the season when he poked a loose puck in the crease past Halak just 2:16 into the game for a 1-0 Nashville lead.
