GAME STORY
On their home ice St.  Louis won a close one against New York by the score 
of 1 to 0.  The defense had the best of things as the offenses struggled 
the entire game.  MARK SCHEIFELE scored the lone goal at 10:35 of the 
3rd period.  ANDREI VASILEVSKIY was outstanding in goal.  He stopped everything 
thrown his way for the shutout while facing 29 shots.

Sharks at Blues, block 1

Every year I play a Strat game where the Strat gods just do not seem to be on my side. No matter what happens, the dice simply do not roll your way. This was one of those games. The story of two goalies, one unreal, one real real shitty.

Cam Talbot was spectacular in this one and stole a game in St.Louis In the first period alone Cam Talbot stopped 8 of 9 goalie ratings as the Blues peppered the Sharks goalie early.  At the other end of the rink, usually reliable Carey Price was , to quote Donald Trump , “A disaster”. Price stopped 0 of 3 goalie ratings and then in the second period let in a 1-5 goal (pulled a 1).  That was it for Price. 11 shots and 4 goals.   But that was pretty much how the rest of the night would go. The Sharks dominated on the scoresheet and scored when they had to. The Blues simply could not find a way to beat Talbot. In the end he stopped 12 of 13 in range shots.

 
GAME STORY

Dallas block 1

VANCOUVER- The Stars, who have lost their last 5 Home Openers, including a 10-2 Blitz by these Canucks 4 years ago, caught Vancouver coming off a long road trip to Greece for exibition play! Stars score 4 times in the opening period sending veteran Roberto “Lou” Luongo to an early shower! Down 5-1 in the 3rd period, the Canucks Kyle Palmeri dropped the gloves with Brad Marchand & that gave the Star’s Left-Winger the “Gordie Howe Hat Trick” as he had a Goal,Assist, & a Fight! Cam Atkinson scored twice in a 5-2 Final!

 

CHICAGO- It was a 3-3 game into the 3rd period when Martin Hanzal scored twice on his shift for a 5-3 Hawks lead! Jordan Stall scores with two minutes left & Philipp Grubauer heads to the bench, Stars looking for the tying Goal but Frans Nielsen stole the puck & fed Brandon Dubinskky, who put game on ice with an empty-netter!

 

LOS ANGELES- Dallas Scores! Dallas Scores! The crowd was going banana’s with the chant “Dallas Scores” as Rookie Brayden Point’s 2nd Goal of the period gave Dallas a 4-0 lead just 16 minutes into the game! Kings Goalie Keith Kinkaid would not leave the net(It was later learned that Martin Jones would not go in to replace him-must be in his contract- e-mailed Pat to make sure- Leave him in said Pat) The Kings, who only had 6 shots in the 1st period, only had 6 in the 2nd period, but they Scored on 3 of them, as Sean Couturier’s Tally made it 4-3 with 10 minutes to go in the 2nd period! Kinkaid was holding fort, while Star’s Goalie James Reimer was on shaky ground! Victor Arvidsson hiked lead to 5-3 & Reimer survived the period! The Stars would add a PPG in the 3rd for a 6-3 Final as Kinkaid shined after the disaster in the opening period, making 11/16 rating saves!

 

 

PHILADELPHIA- Victor Arvidsson tied the game with his 2nd of the afternoon late in period three to send the game to Overtime! A late Flyer penalty gave Dallas a PP in OT, but Crawford slammed the door! To the Shootout we go where in the 5th round it was Zach(my back hurts) Parise who gave the Flyers a 4-3 Win with the Game-Deciding Goal! Philly scored 3 times in the Shootout! The “Unsung Hero” for the Flyers was the Fiesty Blueliner Josh Manson, who laid out numerous Hits in the contest!

 

 

MINNESOTA- Jakob Silfverberg got the “Hat Trick” as the Stars Top Line of Arvidsson,Backstrom, & Silfverberg accounted for 4 scores in a 7-3 romp over the Wild! Silfverberg had a game-high 12 shots(he thought he was Ovie) as the Stars had a 44-18 shot advantage! Former Star Michael Ferland, who was traded to Minnesota in the pre-season, had a rough outing in his 1st game back in Texas, as he was a -4(plus-minus)skating on the Wild’s Top Line with Jason Zucker & Henrik Zetterberg!
