Kings At Blues First Period Score: Scoreless, But Blues Dominate Physical Play

It’s odd. The Blues had a massive nine-day break between their last game and tonight’s matchup, and it doesn’t look like they’re the team that’s having issues keeping up. Usually with such a long break, teams take a little while to get back into the swing of things; tonight it took just a couple of minutes and the Blues were getting shot after shot on Jonathan Quick.

The Blues’re outshooting the Kings 10-1. with Ryan Reaves getting two very good looks, using his big body to create chances while plowing to the net. David Perron had the obligatory post-clang, and the Blues had a few gift-wrapped chances go awry, but all in all, it was a solid start to their first period back after a break that lasted a bit too long.
