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.
