NHL: St. Louis Blues at Colorado Avalanche Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Game Highlights:

First Period -

Nathan MacKinnon scored the first goal of the night for the Avs. MacKinnon fired a shot over Torey Krug’s stick and shoulder of Ville Husso. 1-0 Avs.

The Blues tied it up late in the period. After an unsuccessful power play, the Blues still had possession of the puck. Ryan O’Reilly got the initial shot on goal and then everyone went to the net. O’Reilly and company crashed the net (Torey Krug was literally cross checked into it) and O’Reilly finally jammed the puck home tying the game at one.

It was a shot filled first as both teams fired 14 shots on goal.

Second Period -

No goals. Shots in the period were 12 - 6 in favor of Colorado.

Third Period -

The Blues looked like they had played well enough to at least salvage a point. And then they didn’t. With just FORTY F*CKING SECONDS left Cale Makar fired a shot on net. The puck found its way through multiple players and past Husso.

The Avs win this one 2-1. Heartbreaking loss for the Blues to take. They played well enough to win..and still couldn’t. Final shot totals were 34 - 28 in favor of the Avs.

The Blues are back at home tomorrow night against the Golden Knights.
