Blues Vs. Canucks Final Score: St. Louis Get Shutout In 2-0 Defeat

The St. Louis Blues managed to keep the Vancouver Canucks off the scoreboard for two periods, but they couldn't hold on in the third period of a 2-0 defeat on Thursday night. Playing on the road in a match-up of NHL elitse, the Blues weren't able to score against a stingy Canucks defense.

Despite getting 29 shots on goal, the Blues weren't able to get a single puck past Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo all night. The Canucks were having similar issues scoring for a while, but with the benefit of playing at home they managed to find a score early in the third period.

Vancouver's Alex Burrows scored the game-winning goal, the game's only goal, roughly four minutes into the third period. It was his 23rd goal of the season. The two sides battled it out until the end after that goal, with the Canucks sticking one more into the empty net with less than a minute remaining in the game.

It was a hard-fought loss for St. Louis on Thursday, but the Blues still are surely looking forward to future games against one of the major Eastern Conference contenders.

Blues Vs. Canucks Score Update: St. Louis, Vancouver In Scoreless Tie After Two Periods

The St. Louis Blues and Vancouver Canucks are locked up in a scoreless tie after two periods at Rogers Arena on Thursday night. In an anticipated match-up between two of the NHL's top teams this season, fans have been treated to a defensive battle between two high-quality defensive teams.

So far this season, the Blues have been tops in the NHL in allowing the fewest goals per game, and they've continued that trend against a talented Canucks team. However, St. Louis hasn't been able to score at all either, so both teams go into the final period without a goal.

After two periods, each team has had two power play opportunities apiece. St. Louis has a 22-18 advantage in terms of shots on goal, but both the Blues' Brian Elliott and the Canucks' Roberto Luongo have been perfect in the net. At the moment, Vancouver has lost two games in a row, so getting a win against St. Louis would be huge.
