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.
