St. Louis Blues At Minnesota Wild: After The First Period, Score Knotted At Zero

The Wild are known traditionally for two things: their not-so-explosive offense and their clamping defense. Both are on display so far tonight, as the Blues and Wild each got five shots on goal off with none going in. Not too much to report, other than the penalty kill is one-for-one. A phantom hooking call on Carlo Colaiacovo led to the Minnesota power play, but their PP is nearly as neutered as the Blues’ is.

Halak has looked ok after one period, but considering he’s faced five shots on goal, he should look ok. The Blues should have a solid second period based on how hard they’ve played – tough checking from the Blues is putting the Wild on edge. Hopefully the banging momentum translates into goals in the second.
