The Blues played with more energy than previous games, but Binnington let in a bad goal, and The Blues, being outskated, gave up too many penalties, plus, the refs added 2 that shouldn't have been. But, the bottom line is that The Blues, somehow have to play better. Unfortunately, they have 16 of the remaining 20 games against the 3 teams ahead of them, so they have few less important games for the previously-injured players to get used to playing with their teammates, and get into a good groove. I think it's not a great bet that they'll make the playoffs.

We had all the momentum.

Things were looking up.

DP57's stick breaks as our goalie was pulled so to keep the puck in the offensive zone, he 2-leg slides and gets the puck to stay in the offensive zone.

A avalanche player could've jumped over him or skated around him....but didn't and fell over DP57 still lying on the ice.

2 minute penalty for tripping on DP57.

I hope chief and army rip into the suspect officiating we had today...schenn tripped no call tarasenko interefered with no call krug or walman tripped no call.

But THAT was a tripping penalty.

Hey ref, go get aids
Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government!
