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.
