ST. LOUIS BLUES 4 VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS 2 (16-13-5 37 PTS)

Recap: The game in St. Louis got off to a fast start for both teams. The Blues opened the scoring five minutes in, but Max Pacioretty would tie the game :25 seconds later. William Carrier buried a puck later in the period to give his team a 2-1 lead. Marc-Andre Fleury made a few outstanding stops holding the one goal edge after the 1st period.

St. Louis would tie the game 2-2 early in the 2nd period. The Blues added two more in a span of :39 seconds giving them a 4-2 lead through two periods.

The Blues made things difficult for the Golden Knights offense in the 3rd period. Vegas would have several quality chances but the Blues defended well enough to shut them out for the second straight period. St. Louis fought off a Golden Knights empty net to secure their win 4-2.

Vegas’ record drops to 16-13-5 with their loss in St. Louis but they’ll have a chance to get back on track tomorrow in Dallas. Game time is scheduled for 5PM. (Recap by Jason)

Analysis: The Golden Knights played a terrific 1st period leading by one after 20 minutes, but it all came crumbling down in the 2nd. Just about everything they were good at in the 1st they were terrible at in the 2nd. They created a bunch of scoring chances in the 3rd, but it was too little too late. Overall, the Golden Knights just weren’t good enough on the road to beat the defending champions. (Analysis by Ken)

    Tuch was buzzing but didnt have the finish …thought would hit your 3 stars

  2. I thought we were unlucky. The 2nd half of the game we dominated, IMOP !! I’m not disappointed, we passed well, played a team game, we made St.Louis look bad for alot of the 3rd period. I’m not above criticism, tell me I’m wrong. Unlucky tonight. The Blues, IMOP, will be lucky to be a wild card at season’s end.

    It was our typical game two good periods and one bad. This year we just string a good run together. I think with the oilers, Flames, and Coyotes were going to have a hard time making the playoffs. The bottom line is we don’t score consistently and just don’t have the chemistry. I’m a little concerned with Payton Krebbs just got cut from Canada’s World Junior team.

    Today was the dark day that I feared. It was the 1st time seeing the Sharks comeback in one of those sports moment montages. It was every bit as painful as I imagined it to be.

  5. new system ignored by players

    the Knights are not even playing their new d system properly, and Gallant says nothing about it.

    the first Blues goal is a good example. There was NO Dman in front of the net. BOTH dmen were behind the net, and Stone was too late to help out, to stop a wide open shot. in a zone system, you MUST always have at least one dman in front.

    another example, in the OT loss to Nashville, McNabb stupidly runs into the opposite corner, even though his other 2 teammates were already there for the puck scramble, and of course the Preds then easily scored the game winner while clumsy McNabb was trying to get back into the front-of-net position he never should have abandoned in the first place.

    wtf good is a zone system if the players are going to ignore it and continue to play their selfish brand of freelance pond hockey??
