Zzzzzzzzz...Oh hi there. The first half of the period saw both teams...and not much else. Through the first ten minutes the teams had a combined four shots on goal. The fifth shot on goal was a goal...for the Stars. Tyler Seguin received a pass from John Klingberg. Seguin found the back of the net to give the Stars a 1-0 lead.
The Blues find themselves down two men at the very beginning of the period. John Klingberg gets his second point of the night in the form of a power play goal.
The Stars go up three to nothing on another Tyler Seguin goal. I’m not sure how Allen didn’t stop this, but he probably should have.
David Perron finally stopped the bleeding and scored a backhander to give the Blues some life. Perron is quietly up to 15 goals on the year now with goals last night and tonight.
Third Period -
While the Blues did outshoot the Stars 12-2 in the third, they couldn’t solve Ben Bishop. They also couldn’t hit a wide open net. Seems to be an ongoing thing with this team.
Final tally Stars 3, Blues 1. Shots missed: Eleventy Million. Shots Taken: A lot. RIP livers. The Blues play again Thursday night.
From the Twit:
This is always awesome to see. Love that the Blues do this.
From the no shit department: “They need to be better at home”
Berube on his assessment of the #stlblues at the halfway point: "We've got to be better at home. That's the biggest thing for me. I think as a team, we're playing a lot better — we're playing good enough to win a lot of games — but we find ways to lose games." pic.twitter.com/Padq629qtU— FOX Sports Midwest (@FSMidwest) January 9, 2019
Hey guys Ben Bishop is from St. Louis!
Ben Bishop on coming home and facing his former team: "I didn't get to play here last year, so it's been a while. It's nice to get a chance to play in front of your friends and family. Obviously, to get a win makes it that much nicer." #stlblues pic.twitter.com/UetYFITPaW— FOX Sports Midwest (@FSMidwest) January 9, 2019
