Patrik Berglund scored twice to lead the Blues to a 4-1 victory
#1
NASHVILLE -- The St. Louis Blues just continue to roll -- especially against the Nashville Predators. Patrik Berglund scored twice to lead the Blues to a 4-1 victory over the Predators on Saturday night. Vladimir Tarasenko and Alexander Steen had the other goals for the Blues, who have won seven of their last eight. The game also marked the fifth and final game of the season series between the Central Division rivals, with the Blues winning all five matchups. "Nashville is hard to play against because you might beat them, but you are never going to outwork them," St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock said. "You have to have your mind right to play against Nashville. You are going to have to finish on your chances." Ryan Miller made 30 saves to improve to 6-0-1 since the Blues acquired him in a trade with Buffalo on Feb. 28. Two of those victories came against the Predators. St. Louis is 19-0-2 against the Central this season. Eric Nystrom scored for Nashville, which saw its three-game winning streak come to an end. The Predators have lost their last five home games, all in regulation. Berglund scored the games first goal at 11:32 of the opening period. Nashville failed to clear the puck from inside its blue line, and Berglund grabbed it and skated to the top of the left faceoff circle, where he beat Pekka Rinne with a wrist shot. "I cant fault him on any of those goals," Nashville coach Barry Trotz said. "We left him out to dry a couple of times." Rinne started for the second game in as many nights, his first back-to-back set since returning to Nashvilles lineup after missing 51 games with an infection in his right hip. "It wasnt good enough," Rinne said. "They scored four goals, which is a lot. I didnt play well." Berglund struck again at 2:02 of the second. He carried the puck into Nashvilles zone on the right side and pulled up at the right faceoff dot, where he beat Rinne between the pads with a wrist shot. It was Berglunds third two-goal game of the season. "I think Ive kind of been playing the same way," Berglund said. "Ive been shooting the puck and now it is finding its way in. Obviously, its nice." Tarasenko made it 3-0 at 7:21 of the second when he collected a rebound off of the end boards and beat Rinne to the far post to record his 21st goal of the season. He has points in five consecutive games. Nystrom scored Nashvilles lone goal at 16:50 of the third after he collected the puck following a goalmouth scramble. The goal was Nystroms 13th of the season. Steen scored his 30th at 8:05 of the third on a one-timer from the top of the right circle off of a pass from Jaden Schwartz. It is the first 30-goal campaign of Steens career. Steen and his father Thomas are just the third father-son combination to each score 30 goals in an NHL season. Thomas scored 30 in 1984-85 with the Winnipeg Jets. "That will be nice to chat about after the season is over, and especially when the career is over, but right now, its another goal," Steen said. NOTES: Nashville LW Viktor Stalberg played in his 300th career regular season game. ... This is the first time the Blues have swept the season series with Nashville. ...

Ayers addition Wednesday makes him the 13th veteran the team has signed since free agency started. Ayers had a career-high 5.5 sacks last season for the AFC champion Broncos. A 2009 first-round draft choice out of Tennessee and a New Jersey native, he is the fourth participant from Februarys Super Bowl, and the third from the Broncos, to join the Giants. The others are cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and return specialist Trindon Holliday. Cornerback Walter Thurmond left Seattle to join the Giants. The Giants lost defensive captain Justin Tuck to Oakland in free agency, leaving Jason Pierre-Paul, Mathias Kiwanuka and second-year pro Damontre Moore. Pierre-Paul was limited by injuries last season. "This is a tremendous opportunity for me, coming to a great organization like this," Ayers said. "They hate losing and theyre always about getting better and preparing, and Ive heard nothing but good things about the general manager and the owners, the coaches.ddddddddddddEveryone speaks highly of them across the league. Theyre a blue-collar organization." Ayers played in 72 regular-season games with 27 starts for the Broncos and had 141 tackles (101 solo), 12 sacks and three forced fumbles. The Giants have been the NFLs most active team in free agency. Along with Rodgers-Cromartie, Thurmond and Holliday, they have signed offensive linemen Geoff Schwartz, J.D. Walton, John Jerry and Charles Brown; defensive backs Zack Bowman and Quinton Demps; wide receiver Mario Manningham; linebacker Jameel McClain; and running back Rashad Jennings. The Giants have also retained 10 of their own free agents - linebackers Jon Beason, Spencer Paysinger and Mark Herzlich; cornerback Trumaine McBride; safety Stevie Brown; kicker Josh Brown; quarterback Curtis Painter; running back Peyton Hillis; fullback Henry Hynoski; and defensive tackle Mike Patterson.
