After the Blues stole a game in Toronto, they rode into Ottawa to take on the Senators. The Blues and Senators were scoreless after one. But in the second, the Blues took the game over. Vladimir Tarasenko was the first to get on the score sheet with his great tip of a Robert Bortuzzo shot. Nothing that Mr. Anderson could do about that one and it’s 1-0 Blues. Tarasenko nets his 20th goal of the year.
With seven minutes to go in the second the Blues struck again. The birthday boy got a present from Mr. Anderson. Anderson attempted to clear the puck but Pietrangelo was there to intercept it. He shot the puck back on net and beat a sprawling Anderson for his 8th goal of the year. The only thing missing was the candles for that cake walk of a goal.
The Blues added their third goal of the night with three minutes to go in the period. Alexander Steen found Brayden Schenn streaking towards the net. Schenn backhanded the puck at the net and the puck found its way into said net. Schenn gets his 18th of the year and put the Blues up 3-0. And no Senators, despite what you’ve heard about the Blues and not being able to count...this was not too many men.
The celebration was short lived though as the Senators were finally able to get a puck past Carter Hutton. Future Blue Bobby Ryan fired a wrist shot through traffic that found it’s way to the back of the net. Just like that it was 3-1.
Alexander Steen put a nice little bow on this one scoring his 8th goal of the year. Granted the net was empty, but hey it counts all the same.
Blues take two of two since coming back from the bye. Next up will be the Phoenix Arizona Coyotes of Tempe or wherever tomorrow night at Scottrade.
Shots for both sides were 37 for the Blues and only 21 for the Senators.
