Blues At Coyotes Second Period Score: D'Agostini Gives Blues 2-1 Lead

The Blues have only lost one game since Ken Hitchcock became coach by more than one goal, and more often than not the number that got the team the win was a “2.” A two goal quota with the strong Blues defense seems to be all that the team needs, but tonight’s defense might not be as sharp as usual. Turnovers and lack of observation have lead to scoring chances for the Coyotes. Thankfully, the Blues scored first – the Yotes have won 16 times and lost just once when scoring first this season.

Alex Steen put the Blues on the board by converting an extremely long up-ice pass from Alex Pietrangelo:

That goal was at 7:12. This one, a Shane Doan rebound, was at 7:56:

That looked to be the whole scoring burst that period, until Matt D’Agostini scored his seventh goal of the year and first in ten games:

The Blues absolutely need to pot an insurance goal or two. The Coyotes are outshooting the Blues 17-12 and it doesn’t look like it’s letting up any time soon.
