Jordan Binnington

As you can see this was a very different look for the Blues today. Apparently the flu bug (or pants shitting epidemic cause it’s funnier) hit the locker room.

Game Highlights:

First period -

With the aforementioned changes in the lineup, the Blues needed some different guys to step up against the Bruins today. Alexander Steen. Hadn’t scored since the 30th of November. That was until today. Bruins turn the puck over and the Blues pounce on it. Sundqivist got the puck to Steen. Steen fired the puck at Boston starter Tuukka Rask and Rask couldn’t stop it. 1-0 good guys just eight minutes in.

Shots were 9-8 in favor of the Blues after one.

Second Period -

Now, I’m not the smartest hockey guy in the world, but I don’t think that this is how you defense. Chris Wagner left WIDE OPEN and he beat Binnington to tie the game at one.

Apparently Binnington does not care that David Backes played here. Or was the Captain. Or likes puppies. Or was Captain America. Or he went on an I hate Canada tour. I could go on but I’ll spare you the rest. What I will do is show you an amazing save from Binnington denying Backes.

Shots in the period were 11-7 in favor of the Bruins.

Third Period -

The Blues and Binnington held off the Bruins to earn a participation point. The Blues were again outshot 11-7. The power play went 0-4 today. It didn’t look great. It hasn’t for a few games now.

Overtime -

The Blues had a few chances but couldn’t get one past Rask. We go to the skills competition. (Shots were 6-2 in favor of the Blues)

Skills Competition -

This Sammy Blais goal will more than likely be on pornhub later because this is just filthy.

Binnington seals his win with a save on something called a Danton Heinen.

Blues end the Bruins win streak and start another one of their own. Hopefully the flu bug doesn’t travel with the team tonight. They take on the Wild tomorrow on NBCSN.

From The Twit Machine:

Good job, good effort?

Coach’s comments.

He does have emotions! Cool.

Player of the Game:

Yep, it’s Binnington. How’d you guess?
