First Period - The Wild looked like they were going to skate circles around the Blues the first half of the period. However, it was the Blues that scored first in this one. David Perron shot the puck on net. The puck took a bounce off of Wild starter Cam Talbot and found its way to Ivan Barbashev. Barbashev put the puck back on net. Somehow the puck found its way between Talbot’s arm and body and in the back of the net. 1-0 good guys.
Goalie highlight alert?!?!? Yes, that’s right we got ourselves a goalie highlight. Save of the night? Yes.
Brayden Schenn kept the puck in the offensive zone. Schenn got the puck off of the wall and over to Jordan Kyrou in front of the net. Kyrou got a shot off (?) and the puck bounced in front of the net. A falling Jaden Schwartz slammed home the loose puck and gave the Blues a 2-0 lead after the first 20.
Second Period - Ryan O’Reilly set up Torey Krug for the defensemen’s first 5 on 5 goal as a member of the Blues. I had to double and triple check that and look at real journalists Twitter machines before I typed that. Anyway, O’Reilly skated behind the net with the puck. Krug skated towards the net. O’Reilly with the perfect pass from behind the net to Krug and Krug buried it.
Krug also had a hand in the Blues fourth and final goal of the night. David Perron one timed a Torey Krug pass into the back of the net from the Enterprise Center garage. Ok, ok. It wasn’t that far. Maybe one of the upper level bathrooms....in any event the Blues were up 4-0 after two.
Third Period - And now we go to Lou Korac for a summary of the third period...
The Blues take this one 4-0. A lot more energy for the Blues tonight despite it being a glorified exhibition game. The penalty kill was 3 for 3 on the night. The Blues and Wild wrap up the regular season tomorrow night.

Oofa. And I was bitching about an 8 pm start time...
Husso on if anyone watched back in Helsinki: "I think my parents for sure. They watch every game pretty much." Puck drop there was 3 a.m. #stlblues— Lou Korac (@lkorac10) May 13, 2021
Fun fact that is actually fun...
Things can change, but sounds like Blues first-round series would start on Monday. #stlblues— Jeremy Rutherford (@jprutherford) May 13, 2021
From the “Is that good?” Department.
Collectively tonight, on this penultimate evening of the season, the #stlblues, #VegasBorn, and #GoAvsGo won their games by a combined 16-0. Okay then.— Jeff Strauss (@jeffreystrauss) May 13, 2021
