Canucks At Blues Second Period Score: Game Knotted Up 2-2

Neither team seems to be interested in letting anyone new score goals in the second period, because the scoresheet looks oddly similar. Shorthanded breakaways, more shots… nothing seems to be working for the Blues. They’re having problems getting pucks past Roberto Luongo. Luckily, Luongo can get pucks past himself, as shown on Jason Arnott’s second goal of the game:

With a little more than two minutes remaining, Alexandre Burrows scored on this nifty deflection (deflected twice, actually) that Brian Elliott had a snowball’s chance in hell with:

As far as countering the Canucks physicality, that’s ceased to be a problem. David Backes has been a force of nature yet again, and Roman Polak of all people got a bit angry. You wouldn’t like Roman when he’s angry.

Blues are out-shooting the Canucks 26-17 and have exploited poor defense on two short handed breakaways just seconds apart: one by David Backes, and one by T.J. Oshie. Obviously, neither went in.

In the last seven games, the team that got to three goals first has won. Here’s hoping that the next goal is St. Louis’.
