One thing that was not better this game is faceoffs. They actually got worse. 26/70 for 37.14%. Steen needs to stop taking them altogether. He was 0 for 8. Sobotka was an even 50%. If they're going to be on the same line, Sobotka should take the draw every single time.

It was unfortunate that Upshall threw that blatant elbow. But, I'd rather have The blues playing chippy than just letting The wild skate. The Blues are in this game, and could still leave Minnesota with a 2-game lead. I'm surely liking this game better than Game 1 before the OT goal.


I was actually a little disappointed that was called. I mean, his elbow clearly went up, but I didn't think it was anything vicious and they mostly seemed to have been letting them play. Hell, they let a slash go that happened when Steen got called for the first penalty of that 5 on 3. It's possible I'm being a homer though I guess.


The really bad part of this is Steen had been called for holding the stick. While killing the penalty, Steen has hit stick literally grabbed on two for a good 2-3 seconds while in the Wild offensive zone. If Pollack is going to make such a lame call, you don't let the other team do the same thing within minutes and not call it. That's the problem with the officiating in this one - severe lack of consistency along with completely ignoring more blatant penalties when players could be hurt - Huala's 2-handed chop on Brodziak during a line change shortly after the penalty called when Tarasenko had been speared.

I like this side of Pietro.


Haula starts shit. Actually gets hit back and turtles. Coward. Not so fun when the other team actually punishes you back. Good on Petro.

Also good on Sanford for not taking crap on face-offs and holding his ground. It was ludicrous during a draw when Sanford was fighting for his space and both refs went to talk to Sanford. Thankfully, Steen stepped in and started yelling at the refs. After that, Sanford kept right on battling and not letting his guy cheat on face-offs. Good thing to see from the rookie.

Don't know if it's been stated anywhere in the thread and if it has my bad.

Sobotka has been a god-damn GODsend in the limited time he's been here. Last night towards the end of the game when he laid out to get the puck out of the zone?

Little stuff like that. Poised. Solid plays. Offense contributing. Man oh man. He looks phenomenal right now.
