St. Louis Blues At Detroit Red Wings: Blues Up 1-0 Courtesy Of A Matt D'Agostini Power Play Goal

Three for four on the power play in the last two games – this is what the Blues’ve needed to pull their game up a level. Last place in the NHL no more (now 28th!), the Blues pulled ahead of the Red Wings on a Matt D’Agostini powerplay goal. D’Ags screened Detroit goaltender Jimmy Howard and was able to redirect a Kevin Shattenkirk bomb from the point past the goaltender:

The Blues controlled the first period initially, but later allowed the Wings to gain their bearings. Nonetheless, there’s little to complain about when a road team is up 1-0 after one period and is leading in shots 10-7. Factor in the fact that the Blues’ve not taken a penalty yet so far, and this’s turned into a solid road period.
