Even though their power play misfired and goalie Jake Allen was less than stellar overall, the Blues escaped with a 3-2 win in Game 2. They failed to take advantage of the Predators' lack of discipline, going 1-for-5 on the power play, which can't happen again -- a wimpy power-play unit in the playoffs equals a quick exit. Plus, the Blues will need someone other than a resurgent Vladimir Tarasenko -- who was a beast -- and Colton Parayko to come up big. The Predators are just too deep.
