The Blues goals were a shorthander from David Backes and a third period goal from Keith Tkachuk. No Kariya, McDonald, Boyes, Oshie or Berglund in the game. So a few points from last night:
- Aaron Palushaj went heavily into the boards in the second period and subsequently left Scottrade Center in a walking boot – possible ankle injury.
- Cam Janssen had a good game – breaking Warren Peters’ orbital bone during a fight in the first period. Andy Murray sent Janssen out as the extra attacker when Mason was pulled late in the game.
- David Backes scored his first preseason goal.
- There are video interviews with Cam Janssen and David Backes on the Blues Website.
Tonight marks the third game in a row for the Blues with an away game against Colorado.
