Here are the highlights from tonight’s game straight from the NHL:
For any Blues fans watching this game, it was a tough one. With the win streak at four, and looking like it could go up to six wins without any trouble before having to face Boston and Detroit, the Blues were outplayed by the Blue Jackets at their own game of grind it out hockey. While they faced a scrappy Blue Jackets team, it looked like the Blues might just sneak into overtime when David Perron seemed to have a goal with 1.8 seconds left. However, the referees called of the goal saying that Perron gloved the puck in. Fast forward to about four minutes into the highlights to check out the wild play.
Here’s what Perron had to say about the no goal:
“As I fell down (it) kind of hit my hand and it went in and … that was the right call,” Perron said. “You don’t know how it’s going to turn out, how they’re going to see it, but they made the right call.”
While this was no where near as bad as being clobbered, it was a disheartening loss especially given the current state of the Blue Jackets. This loss is nothing for Blues fans to get riled up about, and the Blues should be able to refocus with the New York Islanders visiting the Scottrade Center on Thursday.
It is worth noting that Jaroslav Halak had an excellent game in goal. He let up two goals, one of which was a wicked rebound and the other which James Wisniewski scored on a power play with .1 seconds left in the first period. Halak saved 31 out of 33 shots on goal.
