The scoring started early in the St. Louis Blues vs. Edmonton Oilers game on Wednesday night, and then it stopped completely. The Blues are fine with that. Less than a minute into the contest, St. Louis' Andy McDonald would beat Edmonton goalie Devan Dubnyk for his fourth goal of the season to get the Blues out to a 1-0 lead. That's all the scoring the first period would see.
The action at each end was fairly even. While the Blues dominated faceoffs in the first period (9-2), St. Louis only outshot Edmonton by one (8-7) and hits were even at eight a piece.
