Goalie: Jake Allen
There weren't any goals in the first, but hey there were goalies making saves! Jake Allen gets another start because Hutton apparently died and the Blues haven't told us. Seriously why is Jake Allen starting after playing back to back games the other night? Whatever. He started this game and so did Devin Dubnyk. Midway through the first period Dubnyk robs Hunt on a wrist shot to keep the game scoreless.
Jake Allen makes a save of his own on Jason Pominville in front of net.
A few moments later, Allen had to come up big again. On this save he robs Eric Staal on a break away chance.
The Wild score first in this one. Matt
Dumbass Dumba wrists one past Allen for the 1-0 lead.
The Wild scored their second goal on a play from Nino Nintendo, er, Niederreiter, to the delight of this kid screaming into the microphone. Who does he think he is Ryan Kelley?
The Blues scored their loan goal in the second period. Fabbri makes a great individual play to get the puck over to Tarasenko. Tarasenko doesn't miss and cuts the Wild lead to one.
Jake Allen can make those highlight reel saves can't he? This one is no different. He robs Zach Parise and denies the Wild the 3-1 lead.
Allen makes the save on Erik Haula to keep the game 2-1. I guess Erik wasn't gonna Haula away anything here. Sigh. *rimshot*
WHY COULDN'T JAKE ALLEN MAKE THIS SAVE? Oh, right.
The Wild go on to win 3-1 and the Blues well, they Bloozed it on the road.
