St. Louis Blues – Dallas Stars Game 1 Recap

Game 1 of the Blues-Stars second round series saw St. Louis take a 1-0 with a goal by unlikely scorer, Robby Fabbri. Play was relatively even through the rest of the first, and the Blues took a 1-0 lead into the first intermission.

The second period brought more action with Jason Spezza capitalizing on a great pass to barely get the puck by Jordan Binnington and tie the game at 1. This lead was short-lived though when Vladimir Tarasenko drew a penalty on Roman Polak, then proceeded to immediately score.

Leading 2-1 in the third period, Tarasenko scored one of the more spectacular goals I have seen:

Jamie Benn managed to score a goal late to make it 3-2, but it was meaningless – not only because it should not have counted since the referee blew the whistle prior to the puck entering the net, but then signaled a goal, and Toronto’s review team, um, concurred, but also that they were not able to tie it at 3, despite a few chances at the end.

The next game is Saturday at 3PM Eastern in St. Louis.
