Andy Strickland points out that Ryan Miller is in fact a Goalie... - Dilip Vishwanat

Tonight was an emotional game for the Dallas Stars as they took on the St. Louis Blues. The Stars would take home the win in overtime after a physical battle winning 3-2. The Blues would secure a point in the standings but couldn't take the extra one with them. It's Recapin time!

Tonight the St. Louis Blues took on the Dallas Stars. It was a night for the St. Louis men of the D, with multiple goals coming from the blue line tonight. The Stars were obviously dealing with the scary situation involving their teammate Rich Peverley after he collapsed on the bench halfway through the first period against Columbus last night. Peverley suffered a heart episode, was revived, and taken to the hospital in Dallas. He was conscious after his revival and requested to get back into the game, unfortunately he was not able to and the game was postponed by the NHL. Sending stick taps, thoughts, and prayers to Peverley and his family. With that said, the game tonight was a hard fought intense bout of hockey with an emotional edge to it.

First Period

The Stars came out with a lot of ferocity and heart, they took it to the Blues in the opening two minutes. Clearly they wanted to bring the W back to Dallas for Peverley. The Blues were able to defuse most of their pressure but could not sustain pressure of their own. The two teams were stuck at a stale mate until 13:01, when Alex Pietrangelo would pick up a juicy rebound and get a wrist shot past Tim Thomas from the center hash marks.

The Stars would get a chance to equalize the score after Kevin Shattenkirk would go to the box for holding Dallas new found agitator Ryan Garbutt. At 19:07 Dallas would get a power play goal from Colton Sceviour. They would go to the locker room tied 1-1.

Second Period

The Second period would kick off with an interference call on Alexander Steen after simply knocking him over. Clearly the two teams were not pleasant with one another as the Polak door was close to being opened several times through out this game. The period would be full of penalties and nasty words. Including a assurance of Alexander Pietrangelo losing his temper hard core on Antoine Roussel after a hit along the boards by the Blues bench. The period would end with penalties to Petro and Roussel, Backes chirping Benn off the face-off, Oh and Tim Thomas tripped over what had to be the ghost of an ice midget and/or air.

Third Period

The Third period would see a resurgence of the Dallas offence. Their speed would be the difference maker for the game and at 2:19 Ryan Miller would give up his first "bad" goal as a Blue with the puck trickling past the goal line. He made several beautiful saves though out the rest of the game and certainly kept the Blues with in striking distance of a win. At 5:01 Roman Polak would get a well executed slapper past Thomas to tie the game back up at 2. The two teams and their goalies would continue to put pressure on one another throughout the rest of the period but the tie would stand, sending the game into overtime.

Overtime

The game would end after Jamie Benn would score as Alexander Steen would be held down on the ice by a Dallas player. The Blues winning streak would end. Here with us is Barret Jackmen to help ease the pain of the loss. At least they got a point and are now two points up on Anaheim!
