Wild look to tie up series in Game 2 against Blues

The Blues' goalie was outstanding for the third consecutive game, making 40 saves and Jaden Schwartz had the go-ahead goal in the second period to give the Blues a 3-1 win over the Wild on Sunday at St. Louis for a 3-0 lead in their first-round playoff series.

The Blues lead the best-of-7 series 3-0. Game 4 is Wednesday in St. Louis. On multiple occasions chants of 'Al-len!, Al-len!, Al-len!' resonated from the 19,334 in attendance.

"He does everything well, especially shoot the puck", Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo said of Parayko. "I'm not very good with words". "Putting pucks to the net and trying to get some bounces and see if we can turn the momentum".

"Lights-out, I guess. He's calm back there".

Perhaps most interesting on Thursday was hearing the winning team talk about the need to play better and hearing the losing team talk about needing to stay the course. "We relied on him a bit too much". We had 79 shots at their net today, compared to, I think it was 47.

Bryan Rust added two goals for Pittsburgh, and Marc-Andre Fleury overcame a shaky first period to make 33 saves. "If we can find a way to score a goal, I think it's a different game. we have chances, but obviously chances aren't good enough". Not that that's an indicator of anything, there are some parts of our game that could be better, there's no doubt in my mind. We know everyone has to chip in, and that's a big thing we have had going for us this season. And the Wild can not expect to just flip the switch and dominate again without putting in the work.

The likes of Ryan Reaves and Scottie Upshall were able to disrupt the Wild in between whistles, while Allen was able to rattle them with his timely one-and-done stops during play. The St. Louis Blues have won seven straight games when allowing four or less goals.

"Everything they've done", Boudreau said, "we've expected". Keeping the Minnesota Wild forwards out of the crease was clearly a priority.

But Dubnyk especially didn't like the four-on-four scenario at a critical point in a tie game.

Zach Parise scored again for the Wild, on a 5-on-3 late in the second period, but goalie Devan Dubnyk simply hasn't been as dominant as Allen at the other end.

But the Blues regained the edge, and it was thanks to a power play that had not produced anything in the first eight tries.

"One period at a time, you must win". Our PK was great tonight.

Eric Staal's pass in front of the net was blocked by a defender, but when Blues center Kyle Brodziak tried to clear the loose puck, it landed on Parise's stick.

Blues star Vladimir Tarasenko was quiet for most of the night until he drove into a crowd and threaded a pass through the Wild defense to Edmundson, who knocked in the second postseason goal of his career.

"I'm in the same boat". Like I said, Happy Easter. "That wasn't fun to watch". Including these first three playoff games Allen now owns a.943 save percentage in his 28 appearances since February 1.

Yeo did recall a conversation he had with Allen earlier this year, when he was going through a tough period and was pulled from several games in a row. "That's the only thing we can do right now". That sends a bit of a message to Yeo's team: If the coach doesn't like what he sees he is not afraid to swap you out, even if the team wins.

"I think a flawless example would have been where (Jason) Zucker came out of the penalty box two games ago and over-skated it, then passed it to (Eric) Staal, and Staal panicked and threw it across".
