The banged-up St. Louis Blues are back from break, and they just beat the Nashville Predators for the fourth time of the regular season.
This game was extremely boring. C’mon, you know it’s true.
The Blues didn’t register a shot until midway through the first. They only had four shots by the time the first period ended… I wasn’t sitting on the edge of my seat during that game.
The story here was the goalies. Hands down. I thought we were going to a shootout until the final minutes of the game.
But, to my pleasant surprise, the Blues sent home the remaining fans at the (half-filled) Bridgestone Arena home with their heads to the ground.
With 1:05 left in regulation, Robby Fabbri swung around the Predator’s goal. He found Alex Pietrangelo, who ripped a slap shot. The puck deflected off of Troy Brouwer before it found its way past Pekka Rinne. Brouwer’s 10th of the season gave the blues a late 1-0 lead.
Luckily, the Blues held on to tally their first win back from the All-Star break. They host the Sharks on Thursday, 7:00 p.m.
