Goalie: Welcome back Brian Elliott!
The Blues take on the
Utica Comets Canucks tonight in Canada. The Blues welcome back Brian Elliott after being out with an injury They also would face ol' 5% Ryan Miller. The Canucks also had TEN players out of the lineup for the game tonight. While the first period had good moments, the real action didn't come until the second period. With the score still 0-0 Brian Elliott would rob Creepy Sedin twin two in front of the net.
Flash forward to 3:47 left in the second. With the Blues on the powerplay Robby Fabbri would connect with Troy Brouwer with a brilliant pass to give Brouwer a net so open that he'd have to be Brad Boyes to have missed it.
Brouwer gets his 15th goal of the year. Fabbri(19) and Stastny(29) get the assists on the play. Fabbri had a great game tonight, and the Fabbri/Stastny/Brouwer line is playing great hockey as of late. Brouwer would almost get a second goal at the end of the second. Vancouver would turn it over in their own zone and Brouwer would take the pass from Fabbri and fire it at the net. It would beat Miller and looked to be a good goal. Only problem was, the clock was at zero before the puck went in. Moving forward to the third, with Vancouver on the powerplay, Brian Elliott would stand tall again denying several rebound chances after the initial shot from Sven Baertschi.
Tarasenko on 100 goals: "It's a better feeling because we won. Thanks to my teammates for helping me reach 100. Hopefully more to come."— St. Louis Blues (@StLouisBlues) March 20, 2016
