Evangelista Scores His 2nd of Game, the Route is On for Predators
It’s a four-goal lead for the Predators at this point. A pretty insurmountable lead, but the Blues aren’t buried yet. A lot of time left, and the Predators power play looked like it was going to come up empty.
While it doesn’t officially go down as a Predators power play goal, as it was expiring, Evangelista gets his 2nd goal of the game to really put this one out of reach for the Blues to make a miracle comeback.
It was a prevailing theme in the game; the Predators won loose puck battles and the Blues many times couldn’t get out of the zone. Much of this was due to outstanding passing from the Predators.
This is another hard-working, grind it out goal. They didn’t give up on the play. Evangelista was a big reason why, so it was nice to see him get rewarded with the goal on the assists from Philip Tomasino and Alexandre Carrier.
And by the way, Tomasino has his point streak up to four games after being benched multiple games. Awesome for him to battle back and produce.
