Last 10 minutes of the 2nd period, outside of the Dunn turnover, was very good for the Blues. They finally started doing to NJ what NJ did to them in the 1st.

Just a thought - why not move Steen to that 2nd PP unit with Parayko and move Dunn up with Pietrangelo? They need to do something to change up the PP and get it working. Never been sold on Steen as one of the points on the first unit.

AVERY good idea. Those 2 D-men on the points and drifting around, and alternating between making quick, accurate passes and moving in towards the net would give The Devils fits.

The Devils' announcer said Tarasenko gets the only assist on Schwartz's goal. But, I clearly saw Schenn (#10) make the backhand feed to him. Am I blind?

Should have been a penalty shot.

I watched the Calgary game last not and both calls that were penalty shots in that one were less clear about being from behind than that trip on Tarasenko.

That trip on Tarasenko would have been a penalty shot if The Devil hadn't hit the puck with his sweeping stick.

Let's score and put this game away!

Schwartz hits the crossbar!!!

The Blues need to score another goal. But they might have to kill a penalty for Too Many Men. Boo!

Panger talking about how Schwartz separates with starts and stops...

Hischier is very good at doing the same thing. Dunn almost got caught by Hischier's speed during that power play. Hischier will do the look like he's skating hard, but isn't really, then suddenly accelerate to create separation thing.

Ray Schero has done an outstanding job rebuilding the Devils in only his 3rd season with NJ. Of course, having the #1 overall pick helps - unless you are the Edmonton Oilers - who again drafted a forward with their first round pick when they need defenseman.

Great kill by ALL The Blues' PKers! Schwartz, Brodziak, Sobotka, Paajarvi. No good chances against and one SOG and scoring chance FOR.

Really nice kill when it takes 3 Devils while on the PP to get the puck away from Schwartz while in the Devils zone. :grin: :goblues:

The Blues need to score another goal, preferably BEFORE an empty-netter.

19-4 shots in the 3rd, that never would have happened under Hitchcock.

Tonight was the NYC Blues Fans get together... I can't even begin to understand why it was for a game in Newark rather than the Columbus Day game v. the Islanders but so be it. There was no way I was hauling down to the Prudential Center on a work night. Been there before, parking blows and it's too far a drive back home after the game.

Blues dominated last 30 minutes of that game.

At one point in the 3rd, Gunnarson was out with Pietrangelo and Panger was commenting how Yeo was going to back to the sturdier defensive pairings. Next faceoff, it was Dunn with Pietrangelo. Looks like this whole "protect the lead with defense" thing is gone, FINALLY!!!

So kudos to Yeo for bringing that to the Blues!!!

I've been pleasantly surprised by the brand of hockey Yeo brought to this team. Whether it's because of him or because of his assistants, I don't care. This team comes ready to play and they're fun to watch.
