Nashville Predators forward Vernon Fiddler finished Game 1 against the St. Louis Blues with 8:51 in ice-time and the game-winning goal. On Friday in Game 2, Fiddler finished his night with 3:36 of ice-time and some egg on his face.
Fiddler received a kneeing major and was tossed after a collision with Blues defenceman Colton Parayko late in the opening period.
Parayko was visibly shaken up and skated off the ice favouring his left leg after his knee appeared to be hyperextended on the play. The standout blueliner was, however, able to return to the game in the second period.
Vladimir Tarasenko netted a power-play goal before the end of the first yet the Blues couldn’t capitalize a second time on the extended man advantage.
