The St. Louis Blues, more often than not, push hard in the first two periods and fall short in the third. BUT NOT THIS TIME. And not lately. The Blues gave fans a real show against the L.A. Kings, beating them 5-2 after being down two goals. Halfway through the second period the Blues pushed hard and made beautiful passes. Jake Allen worked harder than ever to keep the Kings from scoring after their first two goals and succeeded with finesse. And while everyone is praising Tarasenko for his second hat tick of the season (OBVIOUSLY), this win was most definitely a team effort.
Too true, Backes. The Kings play hard and fast to defend their title. Although their recent games have lacked their usual spark, the Blues still need to keep their skates sharpened for any new tricks. After their win against the Kings on Tuesday, Thursday could prove difficult. You know the Kings will be gunning for Tarasenko, (as most opposing teams do these days). But as lightening fast as the Russian native is, the Kings will have their work cut out for them.
And yet, if you watch the Blues goals from Tuesday night, Tarasenko’s hat trick came from a few great passes.
