D - Pairs
First Period -
With less than two minutes off the clock, David Perron gave the Blues a 1-0 lead. David Perron beat Stars starter Ben Bishop with a wrist shot. Sammy Blais set up Perron for the goal as the Blues had a 4 on 2 rush up ice. It was the Blues first shot on net. Seems efficient.
With a little less than nine minutes to go, Jaden Schwartz tied the game at one. Yes, you read that right. Jaden Schwartz knocked the puck into his own net while the Blues were on the power play. It actually looked as if Binnington was going to cover the puck, but Schwartz’s stick knocked the puck into the net. Oops. Mattias Janmark gets credit for the Schwartz goal. Game tied 1-1.
Shots in the Period were 15-9 in favor of the Blues.
Second Period -
The Stars took the two to one lead on a sharp angled shot from Miro Heiskanen.
The Blues were once again out played in a second period for the second straight game. The Stars out shot the Blues 10-3 in the period.
Third Period -
The Stars thought they had scored on their power play to make it 3-1, but the Blues challenged the play for it being offsides...
The goal was overturned, and the video room deserves raises after that one because as you can see from the picture, it was very close. Fresh off his shiny new deal, Brayden Schenn scored to tie the game at two. Vladimir Tarasenko got the puck into the zone. Tarasenko left the puck for Schenn who fired the puck on net. Bishop got a piece of it, but the puck rolled over his shoulder and bounced behind him. Pietrangelo almost got the puck into the net but it was a Dallas stick that ultimately knocked it in.
The Blues took a 3-2 lead with 9:35 left in the game thanks to Sammy Blais’ ass. Ryan O’Reilly won the faceoff and got the puck to Carl Gunnarsson. Gunnarsson fired the puck toward the net. The puck bounced off of Sammy’s ass, off another player and past Bishop for the goal.
That would be the final score 3-2 Blues. The Blues get their first win of the young season. Final shots on goal favored the Blues 30-29. The Blues head up to Toronto to take on the Leafs Monday night.
From The Twit Machine:
From the “That’s probably not a good sign for you” department. Sanford only had 8:41 of ice time tonight.
Sanford sitting in the third period. Sundqvist took a shift with the third line and now it's Steen. #stlblues— Jeremy Rutherford (@jprutherford) October 6, 2019
I mean if I could score with my ass I’d be pretty confident too. Wait, that probably doesn’t sound right.
Asked David Perron where Sammy Blais' confidence is at right now: "He scores with his rear end, so I guess it's pretty high." #stlblues— Lou Korac (@lkorac10) October 6, 2019
