After an uneventful first period (unless you consider two delay of game penalties and a too many men on the ice penalty eventful) the second got off to a pretty solid start. The Blues began the second period on a power play due to an Antoine Vermette hooking call, and Alex Pietrangelo made the Coyotes pay for their indiscretion: with a powerplay wrister. That was his 12th goal of the year, but just as impressively it was Kevin Shattenkirk’s 30th assist for the season.
The Blues have outshot 16-13 in a fairly evenly matched game. Here’s hoping that they can make it through the third period without another delay of game penalty. There were two more tacked onto the box score after the second period.
