Block 8. Islanders at Blues

The Blues were let down by their powerplay tonight, which is usually their bread and butter, as St.Louis went 0/6 due a great PK job by the Islanders. Islanders took it to the Blues for the most part outshooting them in two of the three periods despite all the powerplay chances by St.Louis. Rick Nash opened the scoring in the game for the Blues. But Paul Byron tied it a short time later. Things were all even until Andrew Shaw scored late in the third period to give the Islanders the win.

GAME STORY
The visitors from New York won a close one against St. Louis by the score
of 2 to 1. St. Louis was unable to get their power play going and finished
0 for 6 with the extra man. ANDREW SHAW closed out the scoring with the
game winner at 16:24 of the 3rd period. DEVAN DUBNYK was outstanding
in goal. He gave up just a lone goal while facing 26 shots. Others who
scored were PAUL BYRON for New York and RICK NASH for St. Louis.

Block 8 Sharks at Blues

Did not deserve to win this one. Strat gods on my side this time. San Jose dominated for two periods and the Blues get lucky in keeping it close after being outshot 25-17 after two periods. Luck changes in the third and St.Louis gets a powerplay goal early in the third to take the lead. Pietrangelo chips in a late goal and the Blues win 4-2 over a very good Sharks team that deserved a better fate.

GAME STORY
In a good matchup, St. Louis topped San Jose by a final score of 4 to
2. RICK NASH recorded the winning goal at 0:39 of the 3rd period. Other
goal scorers were VLADIMIR TARASENKO and LOGAN COUTURE for San Jose and
MILAN LUCIC, BRENT BURNS and ALEX PIETRANGELO for St. Louis. With the
victory St. Louis now has 44 wins and 95 points on the season.

Block 8. Dallas at St.Louis

It was retro night in St.Louis as each team put on their old school jerseys. The Blues played like at team that was still alive from the 1970s. Plain and simple this was the Carey Price show. Dallas came at St.Louis with a wave of attacks but Carey Price stood his ground and stopped all 12 goalie ratings as the Blues steal one from a team than played so much better than they did. Brad Marchand finally solved Price with a late goal in the third period as the Blues were in a defensive mood.
