Mayors bet music, BBQ sauce over Blues-Predators matchup

Pekka Rinne made 22 saves and Cody McLeod scored the game-winner to get the Predators a 3-1 win and take a 2-1 series lead over the Blues.

NASHVILLE — Music, barbecue sauces and local sweets are at stake in the Western Conference semifinal between the St. Louis Blues and Nashville Predators.

Nashville Mayor Megan Berry and newly elected St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson agreed to the bet shortly before the Predators beat the Blues 3-1 on Sunday to take a 2-1 series lead.

If the Predators win, the St. Louis mayor owes Barry a basket featuring a blues compilation album, an assortment of local barbecue rubs and sauces, a gooey butter cake and a Blues jersey. If the series goes the other way, the Nashville mayor owes Krewson a basket including a country music album, Nashville barbecue sauces and rubs, Goo Goo clusters and a Predators’ jersey.
