After winning the first two games of their current road trip, the St. Louis Blues headed to Vancouver to take on the Canucks with hopes of sweeping the three-game road trip. Thanks to a gritty second period effort and another miraculous save in overtime by rookie goalie Jake Allen, the Blues were able to beat the Canucks 4-3 in shootouts.
The Blues fell behind early as Canucks forward Ryan Kessler scored a power play goal less than five minutes into the action. Vancouver controlled the play early and the Blues hung on and were lucky that the Canucks were not able to beat Allen more than once.
Once things settled down a bit, the Blues fought back with a T.J. Oshie goal before surrendering the lead once again before the end of the first period.
The Blues dominated play in the second period, out-shooting the Canucks 11-4 and the hard work paid off as the Blues were able to tie the score thanks to a goal by Andy McDonald.
