Los Angeles Kings At St. Louis Blues Second Period Score: Kings Knot It Up At One Apiece

There is something to be said for not resting on your laurels. There’s also something to be said for not taking silly penalties and for being observant of your surroundings. The Blues didn’t say any of that this period, as sloppy play started to eek out. The Blues gave the Kings three power plays this period, none of which were necessary, and one of which gave the Kings an opportunity to tie the game at one. Granted, Barret Jackman did help with that, by making a backhand pass – it was supposed to go past Mike Richards, but it went directly to him, who cross-fed Anze Kopitar for a shot that Halak had no chance on.

Jonathan Bernier robbed T.J. Oshie and Patrik Berglund on several shots, and he is responsible for the score still being tied 1-1. He turned away all fourteen of the Blues’ shots this period. If the Blues hadn’t’ve played six minutes of the period shorthanded, that shot total would have been significantly higher.
