from Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,
Blues coach Ken Hitchcock had plenty to say about that bad break at the end — Richards’ goal that came after teammate Jeff Carter popped up the back of the net with a hefty shove from behind. That jarred the positioning of Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak, who stopped 37 of the Kings’ 40 shots Thursday.
“Carter pushed the back of the net, pushed Jaro’s foot off the post,” Hitchcock said. “Richards jammed it (inside) the post. ... I don’t know. They’ll have to explain that to you at the NHL level. Carter’s motion on the back of the net forced Jaro’s foot off the post ... it went in.”
The goal stood after a review.
“I’m not really sure what happened,” Richards said. “You just look at the puck and poke, poke, poke. I got a little bit lucky and just jammed it in.”
