Blues Vs. Blue Jackets Second Period Score: Tied Up After Two, 1-1

As Blues and Blue Jackets games trudge onward, they inevitably get a bit more rough and tumble. It doesn’t help much when the score’s as tight as it is in this one.

The first goal of the game goes to Patrik Berglund, which was his 15th goal of the season. He got the rebound off of an Alex Pietrangelo shot and fired it past Curtis Sanford to put the Blues up 1-0:

Mark Letestu tied the game up ten minutes after Berglund’s goal with a laser from the point:

From there on out, it got chippy. Ian Cole got slammed into the boards by Jarret Boll, which angered Chris Stewart. The two didn’t really fight, per se. I think it’s more accurate to say that they hugged it out:

Stewart wound up with an extra two minutes for roughing, and the fight between Kevin Shattenkirk and Darryl Boyce that was prompted by a slightly high hit from Boyce on Alex Pietrangelo was just about as eventful:

Of course, Shattenkirk wound up with the ton of penalties, which were a double major for roughing and a minor for elbowing. The Blues enter the third period on a bit of a penalty kill, which should be ok. The Blues killed off two more penalty kills, so the Blues are on a streak of 43 straight penalties killed.
