Predators look to take next step
Nashville has chance to advance
Pekka Rinne will be looking to add to his league-leading win total Sunday afternoon at Bridgestone Arena. A victory will advance the Predators to their first Western Conference Finals in the franchise's 19-year history.

 The Nashville Predators will get a second crack at history today. After seeing their chance to secure a spot in the  Western Conference Finals for the first time in franchise history slip away Friday night in St. Louis, the Preds will look to clinch the series in Game 6 in Nashville.
The Preds entered Friday's Game 5 holding a 3-1 series lead but the desperate Blues prevailed 2-1.  Now the series returns to Bridgestone Arena for an afternoon contest with Nashville holding a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series. The Predators are currently riding an eight-game playoff win streak in games played in Nashville and hope the raucous atmosphere will provide the extra spark that seemed missing in their Game 5 loss.
Despite the less than stellar effort in St. Louis, Pekka Rinne continued his outstanding play during the playoffs, surrendering only 2 goals on 32 shots. Rinne leads all goalies in the NHL playoffs with a .951 save percentage and 7 victories.
Game 6 is today at 2 p.m. at Bridgestone Arena and will be televised on NBC, locally on WSMV Channel 4.
