Blues 2 – Wild 4

[picapp align=”none” wrap=”false” link=”term=paul+kariya&iid=8241994″ src=”0/0/b/7/St_Louis_Blues_338e.jpg?adImageId=11284264&imageId=8241994″ width=”474″ height=”594″ /]

Try as they might – and with 38 shots on goal, they DID try – the Blues couldn’t find many ways past a brick wall called Josh Harding.  They outplayed the Wild but the offense had trouble getting themselves going whilst an horrendous first period, when the Blues gave up three goals, proved impossible to recover from.

Chris Mason was pulled for the second time  in four games after giving up three goals on seven shots.  Ty Conklin gave up one goal on thirteen shots whilst the Wild’s Josh Harding stood strong with 36 saves on 38 shots.

The Blues had their chances – they went 1 for 6 on the powerplay which, to be honest, hasn’t been good all year.  The ineffective powerplay is killing the Blues.  The Blues did score twice – Patrik Berglund scored a powerplay goal late in the second period and then Paul Kariya scored the 399th goal of his career early in the third.  Kariya now has 982 career points.

So, a dropped two points – and with Calgary playing Detroit tonight, the best the Blues can hope for is a Calgary win as the lesser of two evils.  Anyway – your game reports:
