Game Highlights:

After an impressive win over the Capitals last night, the Blues were right back at it against the Islanders tonight in NYC. Jordan Binnington got the start in net for the road team.

First Period:

Isles get on the board first in this one as Jordan Eberle scored his 200th goal of his career. Eberle jammed home a rebound chance. The goal was reviewed, but it stood as called. 1-0 Islanders.

Second Period:

The Blues didn’t tie the game up, but it wasn’t for a lack of trying. The Blues outshot the Islanders 18-6 in the second period. Isles starter Robin Lehner was a big reason why the Blues couldn’t find the back of the net.

Third Period:

The Blues finally break through against Lehner in the third period. David Perron extended his point streak to 12 games with his 17th goal of the year. Shocker, the duo of Ryan O’Reilly/Perron combine for the goal. Perron slapped a one time chance into the net to tie the game at one.

Overtime:

The Blues got an important participation point tonight. But that’s all that they would get. Valtteri Fippula wins it for the Isles in OT. Vince Dunn should take the drop pass out of his vocabulary forever. Binnington couldn’t stop Fippula’s bid and the Isles win it 2-1.

Despite the loss, this was one of (if not the best) the best games the Blues have played this year on the back end of the back to back. The Blues head to Boston to take on the Bruins Thursday.

From The Twit:

Zach Sanford didn’t look great after a hit later in the game, update...

Not great Bob.

Do not envy him as both are playing decently.

Things maybe alright after all.

Player of the Game -

Robin Lehner. Not for the game he played, but walking around with the name Robin. Batman’s sidekick wants his gimmick back.
