Lewan then turned to his daughter, who began to down her water cup. The arena popped.

Predators fans had a lot to cheer about early in Game 4, but fans did not go home happy. The Canucks were able to put together a dramatic comeback behind Brock Boeser’s first playoff hat trick and Elias Lindholm’s overtime winner.

Boeser scored twice in the final 2:49 to get Vancouver into overtime. J.T. Miller added three assists and the team’s third starting goalie, Arturs Slovs, made 27 saves.

Vancouver took a 3-1 lead back home with a chance to wrap it up on the road.

On Tuesday, the Predators stayed alive with a 2-1 win in Game 5. Roman Josi and Alexandre Carrier scored goals for the Predators. Goaltender Juuse Saros made 19 saves in the win.

“All year they’ve kind of done it. Proud of them, the resiliency they showed. It was tough,” Predators coach Andrew Brunette said. “It’s been a tough series to create a whole lot, they’re offensive guys. But they stuck with it, and the message was it might take forever to get it, but keep pounding on the door, and I thought they did a really good job just staying true to themselves.”

The series returns to Nashville, Tennessee, on Friday for Game 6.
