Block 1 Toronto at St.Louis

The Blues were lucky to win this one. Hellebucyk stunk last game but tonight was the only reason the Blues won. Toronto had all sorts of chances including two 1-11 and a 1-16 goal chance and the Blues goalie stopped all three along with 4/5 goalie ratings. Toronto also was better on the shot clock as they outshot the Blues 30-26. St.Louis definitely lucky to win this one in a shootout.

Block 1. Islanders at Blues

Connor Hellebuyck gets off to a awful start where he could not stop a beach ball. He gets the heave-ho and the Blues seem to turn things around. On the flip side Devan Dubnyk was stopping everything but the kitchen sink in the first period going 5/5 on goalie rating stops. Vasilevskiy’s presence seems to help as the Blues score six unanswered goals to defeat the visiting Islanders.

Alex Pietrangelo is the unlikely hero with a goal and three assists and Eric Staal chipped in a goal and two assists for the Blues.

GAME STORY
In their home arena the Blues easily handled New York by a score of 6
to 3. The Blues had 3 power play goals. St. Louis sustained a constant
