Former Nashville Predator Paul Kariya assisted on the first two goals of the game, both scored by Brad Boyes and the Blues beat Nashville 4-1. The Preds have had the Blues number, but that all changed last night. For the first time in three games, the Blues scored in the first period. Boyes got the crowd rocking just 54 seconds in the game.
Many of the players talked about the high level of excitement even during warmups that the fans brought back to the arena. The Blues had just one win against Nashville in their previous 16 games against the Preds.
