St.Louis Blues vs Winnipeg Jets – Round 1 – Game #5 Recap

St. Louis (3-2) v. Winnipeg Jets (2-3)

 

Game Recap:

The Blues looked to be having a very lackluster effort through the first two periods of this game. Winnipeg scored just twelve seconds into this game and looked to just keep going scoring another in the period. Not giving anything to the Blues in the way of chances at all.

Jordan Binnington held the Blues pat only allowing the two goals in the 1st period and shutting the door on all the Jets chances in the 2nd period setting the stage for a potential comeback for the Blues in the 3rd. Jacob Trouba would take a roughing penalty on Vladimir Tarasenko to end the period and give the Blues a Powerplay to start.

In the 3rd the Blues would take their play up a notch. Ryan O’Reilly would score in the powerplay 1:29 into the 3rd. Then at 13:52 Brayden Schenn would tie it up and the Blues would continue the game take over, Winnipeg would try and push back but couldn’t match the intensity and then with fifteen seconds left in the 3rd period Jaden Schwartz would bat a Tyler Bozak  rebound out of the air and score to bring the comeback full swing. three unanswered goals in the 3rd.
