Not a good period for The Blues. They'd better play all out in The 3rd, at this easiest chance to get 2 points. Two wins vs, The Ducks will put them within 1 point of sealing the playoff spot.

I can't remember EVER seeing so many plays in which the puck is between their skates and they CAN'T get it, no matter what they do to try to get it, and no matter how long they have to retrieve it, they can't. It's like they become blind, their feet are numb, and their arms and legs are having an epileptic fit, out of nowhere. What's the story there?

O'Reilly makes a beautiful lob shot for the empty-netter!!!! :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: The Blues seal the Win and the 2 points, and their magic number is now 3!!! Another win against The Ducks next game will all but seal the playoff spot!

Yeah, that goal by ROR on the backhand from center ice is not an easy shot and he made it look easy.

I didn't see the game, but the symptoms you describe could be attributed to crappy ice. It's getting to be that time of year when outdoor temps & humidity become a challenge for the ice plant and maintenance crew to keep the playing surface solid & smooth. High temperature in St. Louis on Monday was 85°F, and relative humidity dipped in the afternoon before rising through the evening as a cold front swept by (source: https://www.wunderground.com/history/da ... e/2021-5-3 ... and my aching bones). :idea:

Do we have a preference on first round matchup? Colorado is two points back with a game in hand.

I don't think that is it. I don't remember seeing that happening to the opponents, and it's been happening in all of The Blues last 5-6 games, some of which were at home, and some on the road. The opponent players simply stuck there stick in and yanked it out or poked it out with ease, and skated on their way. And, as I stated, I don't recall The Blues having this problem to such a degree that I would even notice it, ever before (in 53 years of watching them, and for that matter, in 22 years of my playing the game). I only noticed it because it was happening to several Blues, and not The other team (Avs, Wild, and Ducks). Was it that hot when The Blues plated in Colorado? Maybe several of The Blues took the same drug the night before those games? :? Or maybe I remember wrong, and it was all during this last homestand. But, wouldn't The Blues be more used to their own building's bad ice than the visiting team players?
