The Blues and Stars had an eventful first period, with Roope Hintz scoring early to make it 1-0:
Suffice it to say, the Blues should not have allowed this goal.
Dallas extended their lead to 2-0 on a goal by Miro Heiskanen:
Suffice it to say, the Blues should not have allowed this goal, redux.
While Colton Parayko cut the lead to 2-1, the Stars put away much hope of a comeback with Mattias Janmark helping Dallas reclaim a 2 goal lead:
Suffice. It. To. Say…well, you know.
The Blues played rather poorly in the second but managed to keep the score at 3-1. Jaden Schwartz scored early in the third to give the Blues some life, but St. Louis’s complete, and honestly baffling, inability to do anything on the power play (0/5 today), quelled any thoughts of a comeback, as Hintz added his second as an empty netter with 3 seconds left.
Game 3 is slated for 8PM Eastern in Dallas, Monday night.
