Blues At Devils First Period Score: Zach Parise And Chris Stewart Have Game Tied 1-1

A “fast first period” wasn’t exactly what a person would expect from the St. Louis Blues and New Jersey Devils, but that’s exactly what we got tonight. The only penalty taken was a delay of game one by Barret Jackman. Unfortunately, that was all it took for Zach Parise to score on a wonky, flukey shot to put the Devils up 1-0. The shot, assisted by Ilya Kovalchuk, hit Jaroslav Halak’s glove and bounced in behind the goaltender:

Luckily for the Blues, it took Chris Stewart all of two minutes to score his eleventh goal of the season, poking the puck through Johan Hedberg’s legs:

So far so good, and so far so evenly matched. Not only do both teams have a goal, they also have seven shots on goal.
