Serves as impenetrable wall in Game 1

Serves as impenetrable wall in Game 1

Fragility doomed the Wild during the Mike Yeo era, so it was ironic that the half-season Blues coach reaped the rewards of his team's steely resolve in the face of Minnesota's relentless pressure. The Wild outshot the Blues 52-26, literally doubling their counterpart's shot totals, and couldn't find the back of the net on 51 of them.

"Well, both games were 2-1", he said after Friday's loss.

From the Wild's perspective, it's tough to drop one at home to open the series. They've already had wins when their game was nowhere near where it needed to be, so if they get any kind of advantage on home ice, things might have paid off. Former Blues left wing Chris Stewart tried to engage a few times with agitator Ryan Reaves, his close friend and fellow wedding groomsman. The Blues' penalty killing unit, though, erased the remainder of the power play and sent the clubs to a nail-biting third period. "We know that we have to be better next game, but it was nice to get the win today". "We still have a long way to go, and we can't get too far ahead of ourselves". Clog the middle of the ice. This was the 17th overtime for the Wild in 64 postseason games.

RANGERS 2, CANADIENS 0: Tanner Glass scored in the first period and Henrik Lundqvist made 31 saves to help NY beat Montreal in Game 1 of their first-round Eastern Conference series.

Parise made up for robbing his team of a goal when he inadvertently poked the puck out of the net after it slipped behind Blues goalie Jake Allen, who had stopped all 43 Wild shots prior to Parise's goal. "I thought we played a good game". That followed a particularly rough game against Washington on January 19 when Allen was pulled twice while giving up four goals on 10 shots. It was a big game for Allen. There was one sequence that you may recall where Allen made a spectacular glove save on Jason Zucker with about 3:20 left in the second period.

The man who deserves all credit for the unlikely victory looks like a completely different player from the dark days he endured earlier in the season.

Yeo took his place behind the podium after the game, fully expectant that the first question would be about Allen. They're sometimes derided for it.

Game 1 between the Blues and the Wild in Minnesota should not have disappointed anyone watching from a hockey standpoint, but surely upset Wild fans in the arena after Joel Edmundson's overtime victor. In Game 1, the Wild out-hit the Blues 35-18 despite holding the puck most of the game. The forward group has seven skaters standing six-feet-two-inches or taller, as well as five guys north of 215 pounds. See Pittsburgh, San Jose, Tampa, Chicago, Chicago and Chicago. Jake Allen was remarkable for St. Louis. "They're going to come at us the same way tomorrow". The Wild were running roughshod on the Blues.

Game 1 was an anomaly, as Minnesota led in every major category, yet somehow came up short. The idea that the Blues did anything but play poorly overall seems far fetched, but if you think about it, it might not be insane. Vladimir Tarasenko's incredible shot and strength.
