Given the outdoor facility in St. Louis is named “Busch Stadium,” it seems unlikely St. Louis might ever host one of the outdoor NHL games sponsored by Coors. But a game in Nashville might be a good alternative.

In an event that had that kind of feel, with lots of St. Louisans in the building and many more “tailgating” outside, it seems odd to label the Blues’ 4-1 victory over the Nashville Predators Saturday night as a road game. It seemed more like a neighborhood party.

“It was amazing,” Blues forward Patrik Berglund said. “It felt more like a home game. After I woke up from my nap, I even heard ‘Let’s go Blues’ from the bars down the street. That’s pretty cool when you’re waking up from your nap and hearing that.”

The outcome allowed the Blues to sweep the Predators 5-0-0 in the season series. It is the first series sweep, with at least five wins and no losses, since the Blues went 8-0-0 against the Los Angeles Kings in 1969-70. That would be the Eddie “Clear the Track” Shack LA Kings.

The sweep suggests the Predators (29-29-10) are a pushover. Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said nothing could be further from the truth.

“They probably have one of the top two or three work ethics in the Western Conference, maybe the best work ethic,” Hitchcock said. “So you’re not going to out-work them.

“You’re going to have to finish on your chances and then you can’t get overwhelmed with their work ethic. I thought we did a great job of those things.”

The Blues broke out on a solo play by Berglund. Able to shake off the effects of a knee injury in Thursday’s game, Berglund swiped the puck from Colton Sissons inside the Preds’ line. He then moved across the crease before whipping a shot past netminder Pekka Rinne.

Berglund’s 13th of the season gave the “visitors” a 1-0 lead 11 minutes 32 seconds into the game. The Blues have been rather good when they get the lead, 37-1-5 when scoring first, not to mention 10-1 when Berglund scores.

Amid cheers of “Let’s Go Blues,” Berglund got another early in the second. Breaking from the defensive zone, Steve Ott worked a crafty play to spring Berglund 2-on-1 with Brenden Morrow. Berglund fired the puck through Rinne’s legs, making it 2-0 just over two minutes in.

“(T.J.) Oshie told me to start shooting five-hole a few weeks ago,” Berglund said. “So, I do what he says and it’s been paying off now.”

It was his second of the game, 14th of the season and sixth in eight games.

Meanwhile, things were going well for the Blues. How well? Ask Vladimir Tarasenko.
