Phoenix Coyotes At St. Louis Blues Final Score: Blues Win 4-1 On Goals From Stewart, Berglund

Both Chris Stewart and Patrik Berglund have been missing in action recently. Not tonight. Berglund scored the empty netter at the end of the third period to ice the Blues’ victory at 4-1, but he worked hard for chances all night long. The empty net goal was Berglund’s ninth of the season:

The Blues were out-shot tonight 35-31, but proved that shots aren’t everything; the quality of the shots is what counts. Oshie’s second period power play goal has returned some sort of regularity to special teams scoring – at least by the Blues’ criteria.

St. Louis plays again Thursday night when the Edmonton Oilers, who just lost 4-3 to the Buffalo Sabres, come to town. They are without young phenom Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, who is out with a left shoulder injury, so the Blues have one less youngster to defend against.

With tonight’s win, the Blues leapfrog the Minnesota Wild into fifth place in the Western Conference. Unfortunately, Detroit was victorious tonight against the Dallas Stars, so no divisional ground was gained.
