Game 1. Minnesota at St.Louis

In a word, this was the Jimmy Howard show. Howard stops 14 of 14 goalie ratings, you got that right. 14 goalie ratings in a row as the Minnesota Wild come into St.Louis and take game one of the series.
The Blues outshot the Wild 39-33 and Carey Price was solid stopping 6/8 goalie ratings. But it was Jimmy Howard’s night. Josh Anderson opened the scoring for the Wild on a 1-12 shots and Zetterberg increased the Wild lead to 2-0 on a goalie rating. But Charlie Coyle got the Blues to within one rolling a two (goal 1-12) and scoring. Blues thought now maybe this bad string of luck would change. But it was not to be. Alex Pietrangelo took a penalty with two minutes left and Ryan Suter scored on a goalie rating and the Wild take game one 3-1 on an excellent effort by Jimmy Howard. Wow!!

GAME STORY
In a good matchup, Minnesota defeated St. Louis by a final score of 3
to 1. HENRIK ZETTERBERG scored the game winning goal at 2:10 of the 3rd
period. JIMMY HOWARD was outstanding in goal. He allowed just one goal
while facing 39 shots. HOWARD stopped a number of solid scoring chances,
which made his performance that much more impressive. Other goal scorers
were JOSH ANDERSON and RYAN SUTER for Minnesota and CHARLIE COYLE for St. Louis.
