Tentative back-and-forth play started this game.
A fortunate deflection appears for Ryan Donato, who SCOOOORRESSS his second of his career in as many games.
The B’s would land more shots, but St. Louis had the better chances towards the end of the period.
4-on-4 play to start is SUPPOSED to make things exciting. Instead, both teams decide to play keep-away and not much happens.
As play picks up pace towards the end of the second, Brayden Schenn catches David Krejci up high, and earns two minutes for it. Word from the league should come tomorrow sometime as to whether Schenn gets a talking-to from corporate.
No more goals, as the power play was cut short by a Danton Heinen penalty and the period fizzled out.
The Blues were able to put serious pressure on Boston in this frame through the first ten minutes, and Boston couldn’t counter. Jaden Schwartz tied the game with just over ten minutes to go in the game on good transition play.

The remainder of the period would stay tilted for St. Louis, until a few good stickchecking shifts neutralized their attack. Boston put a few chances close, and the intensity picked up for the final two minutes. Anton Khudobin kept the score at 1-1 with some miraculous out-of-body experience in the waning seconds.
Schwartz scores again. The end.
