Islanders At Blues Second Period Score: Blues Keep On Rolling, Lead 5-1 After Two

Poor Al Montoya. He’s the only available goaltender for the Islanders tonight with Evgeny Nabokov out with the flu, and he is being absolutely shellacked by the Blues tonight. Three goals on eight shots was probably not the performance that the Isles envisioned from their goaltender, though the defense admittedly has not been the most solid thing for their team tonight.

Andy McDonald opened the second period’s scoring with his first goal since returning from a concussion. Patrik Berglund tried to score from a Jamie Langenbrunner shot, and when Montoya stopped that one McDonald was there to finish the job:

David Perron’s hot streak was kept alive with his power play goal (the Blues’ second of the game!) six minutes later. It was a tip in of an Alex Pietrangelo point shot, and just like that the Blues were up 4-1:

The Blues’ final goal of the period, though I suspect not of the game, was tallied by T.J. Oshie.

In fairness to Montoya, the two re-directs were completely unstoppable. I’m sure that’s cold comfort for a goalie making his first start in a while and no comfort at all to a team that would love to gain some ground in the Eastern Conference.
