Game Highlights:

First Period -

After a Justin Faulk tripping penalty, the Blues found themselves on the penalty kill. Jordan Weal scored the first goal in this one banging home the loose puck in front of the net. Max Domi got the puck in front of the net and Weal was there. Power play goal for the Habs. 1-0 hole for the home team.

Moments later, the Blues answered. Jaden Schwartz played a puck off of the endboards that he was able to just backhand past Montreal starter Carey Price. Unfortunately, you don’t get an extra goal or anything for the no look into the net, but it was a pretty goal nonetheless.

Despite the Blues having two power plays in the period, it was tied 1-1 after one. Shots for the period were 11-8 in favor of the Blues.

Second Period -

Six seconds into the period Brendan Gallagher scored from about section 310. And at first he didn’t even think he had scored. “What the fuck? That went in?” for those that can read lips.

The Habs took a 3-1 lead on their second power play of the night. On this one, Jonathan Drouin fired home a beautiful one timer. Drouin capped off what was a great passing sequence for the Habs.

Nick “I hope this guy actually owns a” Suzuki scored the Habs third goal of the period. Once again on the one timer. This one was from right in front of Allen. Nate Thompson was able to avoid the sprawling stickless Colton Parayko with the pass.

The Blues outshot the Habs 15-13 in the period, but found themselves down by 3.

Third Period -

David Perron scored late in the third. Yay.

Crazier things have happened! The Blues still have a very very very very very slim...OH.

That’s all she wrote. Blues fall 5-2. Next up for the Blues is Colorado on Monday.

From The Twit:

I had to check the date on this tweet to make sure it wasn’t from last October.

He’s not wrong.
