Game Highlights:

The Blues survived the bag skate and drill down so they played a hockey game tonight at Scottrade. After the (game footage deleted) thing Saturday night the Blues needed to take advantage of an Eastern Conference foe. The Senators started Craig Anderson again in goal.

Late in the first period, the Blues scored their first goal of the night. Brayden Schenn got the puck up ice with a nice pass to Vladimir Sobotka. Sobotka made a move and beat Anderson under his stick/pad. Sobotka got number nine on the year, and the Blues got the 1-0 lead.

The Blues gave the Sens’ a chance to come back by giving them a 4 minute powerplay at one point, but the Blues held on. Including some shorthanded chances of their own. Carter Hutton had an easy night. The Blues didn’t allow double digit shots in any period, and only gave up 25 all together on the night.

Vladimir Tarasenko, still good at hockey. (Spoiler). Tarasenko gave the Blues a 2-0 lead with a little under 14 minutes left in the third. Colton Parayko got the initial shot on goal. Anderson gives up a huge rebound. Tarasenko one times the puck right back into the net for his 21st of the year. 2-0 Blues.

Brayden Schenn sealed up the win with an empty netter. That’s 20 on the year for him and this all coming before the all star break.

The Blues cruise to a 3-0 win at home. 41 shots on goal tonight for the Blues and as mentioned above only 25 for the Senators. This win marked number 1800 for the Blues in franchise history. They are only one of 8 teams to have accomplished this. The shutout marks the second one of the year for Hutton and his 10th in his career. Up next for the Blues is the Kroenke sucks of Colorado (Who lost to the Canadiens tonight by the way)

Stat of the night, that yes, I’m going to beat a dead horse.

The Blues powerplay went 0-3 again tonight. Again, decline them Mike. The Blues clearly are a better 5 on 5 team.

Twitter Machine Go.

Yeo MTV Raps:

From the “Is this good?” department:

Tage Against the machine. You know I think he’s still out there firing one timers.

And because of all the positivity on Twitter tonight here’s some hockey hugs. *Eyeroll
