NASHVILLE -- After three games, Ryan Miller is fitting in just fine with the Blues. Ian Cole had a goal and an assist to lead St. Louis to its third straight win, 2-1 over the Nashville Predators on Thursday night. Magnus Paajarvi had the other goal for the Blues, who have won all four of their games against Nashville this season. They are 16-0-1 against fellow Central Division teams. Miller stopped 20 shots to win his third game in as many starts since being acquired from the Buffalo Sabres on Friday. Nick Spaling scored for the Predators, losers of six of seven. "This is not how we wanted to come out of the break," Nashville forward Colin Wilson said. "Obviously we wanted to come out on a roll, and (we) havent been able to." Miller was quick to credit his teammates for the few shots against he had to face. "Every night, these guys track hard," he said. "They know where to be. They make the game easy to read." Cole scored the games first goal at 4:03 of the opening period after Steve Ott won a faceoff in the left circle and Cole beat Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne with a wrist shot high to the far side. "Otter had a great win right back to me, and I just kind of waited for traffic to get to the net," Cole said. "I then shot it high to the far side. I dont think he saw it." Otts assist was his first point as a Blue. Nashville drew even at 10:28 of the first on Spalings 11th goal of the season. From the right half boards, Patric Hornqvist sent a pass in front, where Spaling tipped the puck high over Millers right shoulder. The Predators have scored just one goal in each of their last three games, all losses. "We had a couple of looks, and when we had those looks, we werent able to get it by Miller," Nashville coach Barry Trotz said. "So yeah, its a little bit frustrating because youre playing well in a lot of areas of your game and not getting any points." St. Louis regained the lead at 8:18 of the second on Paajarvis sixth of the season. Paajarvi took a pass from Roman Polak in the neutral zone and skated into the Nashville zone on the right side, where he cut into the right faceoff circle and beat Rinne with a quick wrist shot. "Hes really improved," St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock said of Paajarvi. "Hes bought in to the way he needs to play to be a really good pro. Hes become a really good player." Alexander Steen was awarded a penalty shot at 15:27 of the second period after being fouled from behind on a breakaway, but Rinne gloved down Steens wrist shot from the right side. Steen has converted one of two penalty shot attempts this season, while Rinne has turned aside the two that he has faced. NOTES: Hornqvists assist was the 100th of his career. ...

Lions are clear on their mission as they prepare to host the Calgary Stampeders on Saturday. Stop Jon Cornish. Watch the Stampeders vs. Lions live on TSN tonight at 9pm et/6pm pt. The Lions want to make sure the Stamps running back does not repeat his performance of a week earlier, when he scored four touchdowns in a win over the previously unbeaten Saskatchewan Roughriders, while romping for 175 yards. "Its going to take all of us," said Lions defensive lineman Keron Williams. "You cant have one person out there tackling him, because hes too good. Their offensive line is too good." The Lions (4-2) have a chance to move into a tie for first place in the West Division with the Stamps and Riders, who are both 5-1. "Their offensive line and Cornish, theyre real talented, obviously, and theyve been having a lot of success," said Lions linebacker Adam Bighill. "They play physical, so its a big chance to stop them." The Lions are looking to avenge an embarrassing 44-32 season-opening loss to the Stamps in Calgary on June 28, when the game was decided early. Cornish ran for 172 yards and two touchdowns in that game as the Stamps extended their mastery over B.C. dating to the 2012 Western Final. While trying to stop Cornish, the Lions will also attempt to make a better showing of their own running game. Lions tailback Andrew Harris, who has built a rivalry with the New Westminster, B.C., native in recent years, ran for only 20 yards in the season-opener and expects himself and the team to be better. "Its one of these games where its a statement for us," said Harris. "We lost some confidence against them playing in the Western Final. We want to get that morale back and get back to winning ways as a team." Harris comments reflected the Lions ongoing effort to paint themselves as underdogs. The Winnipeg native described his rivalry with Cornish as "friendly" and claimed he is just happy to be mentioned in the same conversation with him. Meanwhile, Lions coach Mike Benevides called the Stampeders "the better team." "We have to prove that we can hang with these guys," Benevides said. But Cornish, who has enjoyed a number of strong games against the Lions, is not buying B.C.s underdog brand, expecting a strong effort from the hosts in a stadium in which they have dominated since it received a new roof in 2011. While he always strives to improve from one game to the next, hee is not banking on a repeat of his four-touchdown effort, either.dddddddddddd "You have to forget whatever you did in the past game, because it doesnt matter," said Cornish. "Sure, it might put us in a better record or whatever. But unless we come out and do what we do every week ... its forgotten. So you have to have a big game every week." Cornish, who is second in rushing in the CFL with 676 yards, a 7.3-yard average and seven touchdowns, also wants to have a big game in comparison to Harris, who sits third with 459 yards, a 5.5-yard average and four TDs. While Cornish contended the media has made more of the rivalry than he does, he welcomes the hype. "The media definitely helps in bringing out good games, because any time you have incessant coverage of a specific pairing of two players, I dont know, it makes you have to rise to the occasion," said Cornish. "I enjoy rising to the occasion, so its not a bad thing." Lions quarterback Travis Lulay thinks the hoopla surrounding the Canadian running backs is great for the league, and he does not mind the ongoing discussion about them, either. "(People) will talk about it forever, because theyre both Canadian guys," said Lulay. "But as far as respect goes, it has nothing to do with passports or anything. Its not like theyre good Canadians. Theyre good football players." Cornish never gets tired of playing in B.C. Place Stadium, either. Its a place where he feels extremely comfortable. "This is the only locker-room Ive ever used here in B.C. Place, and I played here in high school as well," said Cornish. "It never gets old. I like to think of this as my second city, and I really enjoy playing here." But the Lions want to make sure he does not enjoy himself too much Saturday. Notes: Slotback Nick Moore will return to the B.C. lineup after missing the previous game against Winnipeg with an ankle injury. ... The Lions released third-year kicker Hugh ONeill on Friday. As a result, Paul McCallum will handle all of B.C.s kicking duties. ... Kevin Glenn will start at quarterback for the Stampeders as No. 1 Drew Tate remains out with an arm injury. ... The Lions announced a new partnership with Vancouver law firm McMillan LLP, which includes collaboration on community projects. Former federal and Alberta cabinet minister Stockwell Day is a strategic advisor for McMillan and attended a news conference on the announcement, but did not speak.
