Game Highlights:

First Period -

The Blues killed off 1:56 of the Coyotes power play. Unfortunately, with 4 seconds left on the Coyotes man advantage, Conor Garland scored to make it 1-0. Garland fired the puck from the point and past Jake Allen. Apparently, hockey players make better doors than windows as both Colton Parayko and Carl Soderberg were in front of Allen on the shot.

Robert Thomas, Alexander Steen and Tyler Bozak combine for a beauty of a goal to tie the game at one. Thomas hit Steen with a cross ice pass. Steen then skated to the side of the net and backhanded a pass to an open Bozak. Bozak had an easy chance and didn’t miss. Bozak scored his eighth goal of the year from Steen (6) And Thomas (14).

Second Period -

No goals. The Blues had an extended 5 on 3 power play and couldn’t convert. Tell me if you heard that one before.

Third Period -

Hot dogs and hamburgers aren’t the only thing that Phil Kessel can handle. He put the Coyotes ahead by one on a wrist shot. Justin Faulk had been playing a great game up to this point. However on this play he failed to clear the puck out of the zone. Looking at you too Schwartz. Lawson Crouse got the puck up to Kessel for a mini break and Kessel beat Jake Allen. 2-1 Coyotes.

Nick Schmaltz scored on the empty net to seal the win for the Coyotes.

Coyotes take this one 3-1. Shots on goal for the game were 39-26 in favor of the Blues. Next up are the Avalanche tomorrow night.

Twitter Before 2020. Maybe.

Hey Happy New Year everyone.

Put the Blues in it you cowards.

What a difference a year makes...

I mean I’d much rather see him get crushed by Pronger again, but whatever.
