GOALIE

Jordan Binnington

First Period -

The Blues hit the road for a quick one game trip against the Flyers. Neither team scored in the first but there was a significant incident. Alexander Steen appeared to have suffered a shoulder injury after shoulder to shoulder contact with a Flyers’ player. He did not return. Hopefully it wasn’t anything serious, but at least it wasn’t another head injury.

Second Period -

Less than a minute into the second period Brayden Schenn got the Blues on the board. Jaden Schwartz got the initial shot on net, and Schenn was there to bang home the rebound. With Schenn’s goal he has now scored on all 31 NHL teams. Neat.

Third Period -

Vladimir Tarasenko has been invisible the last few games. That is until tonight. With the Blues and Flyers skating 4 aside, Tarasenko goes vintage and rockets a puck past Flyers’ starter Carter Hart. Blues now up 2-0 and looking as though they might not actually blow this.

David Perron seals this one up for the road team with an empty net goal.

Blues take an impressive road win beating the Flyers by the score of 3-0. Goals from Schenn (9), Tarasenko (12), and Perron (14). Jordan Binnington in his first career start earns the shutout. Binnington stopped all 25 shots he faced. The Blues had 37 shots on net. This game was penalty free for the most part as the Blues only had one called against them all night.

It’s a quick turnaround for the Blues as they are back at home tomorrow night against Dallas. Hopefully they show up this time.

From The Twit:

Cool.

No, really. Cool.

I’m sure this won’t have any effect on tomorrow at all...

Player of the Game:

Anyone that hates that stupid orange ball of hate that Philly calls a mascot as much as I do.
