Goals: Sundqvist (1), Tarasenko (30,31)
My Thoughts on the game
- I was at this game and I usually watch it back on the DVR to write my recap. I just haven't had time to do that on this one. I live 1 1/2 hours from Scottrade, so by the time I get home it's usually 11:30 and then up for work the next day. It's just hard to get a recap posted in a timely fashion when I go to the game.
- With that being said, I had a lot of fun at this game. The crowd at Scottrade has been a little rowdier lately, but last night I felt like it was electric.
- Whether you like people yelling "Woooo" or not, at least they're doing something besides sitting there like they're at a tennis match.
- It was good to see Sundqvist get his first goal as a Blue. He's been a healthy scratch more often than not this season, but they say he has a great attitude and works hard all of the time. I'm happy for him to get the goal.
- This Blues squad is working hard and it's truly fun to watch. San Jose had won 8 straight coming into this one, but that ended, didn't it?
- We are in the 1st wild card spot right now with a game in hand on one of the teams under us. We have to keep winning, though.
- Tarasenko seems to have benefited from sitting out a couple of games last week. He scored twice. If we are going to pull this off, we need him putting pucks in the net. For sure!
- Jake Allen continued to be the backstop we need. I thought the Evander Kane goal was definitely stoppable. Jake thought he had it in his glove and it trickled out the top so it must have been knuckling or he just misjudged it. Either way, it wasn't enough to beat us and that's all that matters.
- I'll have a more complete set of recaps for the Vegas and Arizona games this weekend.
- Thanks for reading and please feel free to comment and share with your Blues friends.
