Good game last night between two good teams.
Well, a good third period at least. Blues just couldn't keep any sustained pressure in the offensive zone until the third period and they gave up way too many odd man rushes early on. I was encouraged by what I saw in the third period. These two teams would make for an interesting playoff series.
