Game Highlights:

First Period -

With 4:19 to go in the opening period, Colton Parayko fired a wrist shot at the net. The puck found it’s way into the goal and gave the Blues the 1-0 lead. Parayko with the well timed wrister as Zach Sanford was screening Dallas starter Ben Bishop in front. And you know what they say, you can’t stop what you can’t see. Whoever they are anyway. Parayko (2) from O’Reilly (18) and David Perron (14)

Shots in the first period were 11-5 in favor of the Blues.

Second Period -

While there weren’t any goals in the second period, there was a submission from the “how did that not go in” department

There was also a Nathan Walker goal that was called back due to being offside. Shots for the period were 13-11 in favor of the Stars.

Third Period -

Late in the third right after the Blues second power play of the night the Stars finally broke through. In fact it was the man that was in the box that scored the game tying goal. Roope Hintz came out of the box and raced up the ice. Blake Comeau skated the puck up the ice and passed the puck off to Hintz. Hintz did the rest as he was able to beat Allen and tie the game up at one. Hintz (11) from Comeau (2) and former Blue and current asshole Roman Polak (2)

While yes, the Blues blew another late lead, they got it right back. Just 18 seconds later Ryan O’Reilly scored to put the Blues right back up by one. Jake Allen got the puck started up ice. Eventually Ivan Barbashev got his stick on it. Barbashev found O’Reilly who was able to just tap the puck past Bishop for his sixth goal of the year. Barbashev (9) and Bouwmeester (4) had the assists.

The Stars eventually pulled Bishop. Barbashev then scored an empty net goal (on the backhand even) to seal the two goal win for the good guys. Barbashev (3) from Perron (15) and Schenn (11)

You wont have to wait long for more hockey, as the Blues are right back at it tomorrow night at Enterprise.

Final Shot Count - 40 STL 32 DAL

From the Twitter Machine that kinda works.

He’s not wrong.

This falls into the Neat category.

Post game comments after a win are always better.

Hiss Hiss.

The Dallas announcer for not saying bad words as he’s announcing the Stars goal.
