The Blues got back that missed breakaway opportunity that David Backes had in the first period courtesy of T. J. Oshie and his perseverance in going to the net and getting that rebound:
All three St. Louis goals have come from people either crashing the net or being in front of the net to screen/redirect shots. The Blues aren’t a finesse team, but they work hard and that’s what wins games.
Speaking of hard workers, Scott Nichol is a wrecking ball – which is impressive as he is 5’9" tall. He managed somehow to connect with Lauri Korpikowski more than a little high, sans penalty. Will Shanny be looking at this tomorrow morning?
