Goaltender that probably should have started:
Goaltender that actually started:
First Period -
Jakob Chychrun scored the first goal of the night. It came on one of the 5 first period penalties that the Blues took in the period. Not ideal.
Robby Fabbri got hurt at the end of the first after a hit.
The local boy Clayton Keller had yet to score a goal against the Blues...that is until tonight. New Arizona Blackhawk Nick Schmaltz finds Keller open. Keller proceeds to fire a wrist shot on net and beats Chad Johnson clean to make it 2-0.
Moments later, Robert Thomas scored his second goal of the year on a deflection from Jay Bouwmeester. This is the only Blues highlight of the recap, so if you don’t want to see a bunch of Coyotes goals, go ahead and sit the rest of this one out.
The Coyotes third goal came on a Christian Fischer rebound goal. Somehow Chad Johnson ended up facing the wrong way and next thing you know the puck was in the net. * shrug emoji *
Great passing from Derek Stepan and Nick Cousins lead to the Coyotes fourth goal of the night.
Goal number five from the Coyotes came from another former Blackhawk. Richard or Dick Panik whatever he goes by, jams in a loose puck off of a rebound chance.
Third Period -
Late in the game, as if there weren’t enough penalties teams were 4 on 4. The Coyotes score on a Clayton Keller assist to Alex Goligoski for the goal. 6-1 Coyotes.
Blues lose 6-1. It sucked. The only thing I can say positive was that they only gave up one power play goal. There. I was positive. Blues play Edmonton Wednesday on NBCSN.
From The Twit:
Not even sure the emotion is worth it anymore. Everything sucks. Eat Arby’s.
Not great Bob. Still can not for the life of me figure out why Allen wasn’t starting tonight.
Chad Johnson in his last 4 starts:— STL Blues History (@STLBlueshistory) December 2, 2018
Save % .836 (97 saves; 116 Shots)
This after a .987 Save % and .425 GAA in his prior 3 appearances.#stlblues
It’s getting embarrassing.
Player of the Game:
Pat Maroon for calling out his team for being “One hit wonders”.
