Boy Wednesday night was fun wasn’t it? Tonight was the opposite of fun. The Avalanche routed the Blues 8-0. There’s no putting a good twist on this one. Well the good part was when it was over.
Mike Hoffman made his debut tonight.
Robert Bortuzzo was hit up high early in the game and didn’t return...Upper body injury? I’m pretty sure he thought today was Spaghetti after this. I’m sure player safety will do everything in its power to do the right...ahhahahahahahahaaha.
Coach Berube gave his thoughts on the hit...
Berube on Nichushkin hit on Bortuzzo: "It should be a (hearing). It's a hit from behind to the head." #stlblues— Jeremy Rutherford (@jprutherford) January 16, 2021
If you’re a glutton for punishment, or just wanna see how awful the Blues were here’s the highlight package. If you want to call it that.
Jordan Binnington was the only reason this game was 0-0 after the first period. He was hung out to dry in the second and pulled for Ville Husso in the third.
The Blues had all of 11 shots on goal through 2 periods.
Here’s the captain on tonight’s game.
Ryan O'Reilly: "We embarrassed ourselves tonight. That was very disappointing. The thing is, we came into the game and you could tell we didn't have the detail in it. The little things steamrolled into big things. It was everyone." #stlblues— Lou Korac (@lkorac10) January 16, 2021
It wasn’t fun watching it Colton.
At least they haven’t lost this bad in awhile...See I can find a silver lining.
