It almost could have been last season.  The Blues outshot the Stars 43-25; gave up a two goal lead to lose in a shootout; deserved to win but somehow managed to find a way to lose.

Ty Conklin had his first start of the season for the Blues and made some tremendous stops – the offense worked hard, as did the defense, but sometimes you just don’t get the rub of the ice.  That’s what happened here – that and running into a goaltender in the form of his life.  Kari Lehtonen was outstanding and he was the main reason the Blues didn’t get the two points in this one.

However, it’s not all doom and gloom.  The Blues worked hard, Patrick Berglund scored his second of the season, the Blues went 1 for 5 on the powerplay (not good…but better than it has been) and Ty Conklin proved a very worthy backup with a highlight save:

So, five points out of a possible eight so far on the season.  Not bad – it could be worse.  Blues next face Chicago on Monday.
